I attended this community college for a semester and it was a HUGE waste of time, and I would say a waste of money but financual aid paid for it.
I wouldn't recomend this school to anyone, if you're curious as to why, here's a tone of reasons why...
1.) The Aweful registeration process. Starting off with the class registation process, it was a mad house. They have professors, NOT academic advisors, scheduling mass amounts of students all at once, so they are going through students as fast as possible. I brought my SAT scores and the staff member putting me into classes didnt even look at them. They base everything off of the accuplacer test and wont even consider SAT. They also force you to take a extemely easy class called FYE (First year experince). Supposedly they make all students take this waste of time class their fist semester. (Ill go more into that a little later) However a friend of mine who still attends this college was not signed up for FYE his first or even second semester! Now he has to take first year experince in his second year. This is how terribly managed they are.
2.) The classes/professors and how comically clueless/contridictory they are. 2 out of 3 of my first semester classes were a joke. As mentioned before FYE was a complete and total waste of time. If you got through high school without any issues you shouldnt even be taking this class. They try to teach you "the soft skills" like organization, time mamagememt, and so on. And yes- this class is potentially helpful to some of the students who stuggle in these areas but overall most students seem to fair pretty well on their own. That being said it is just rediculous that the force EVERYONE to take this class. But then again that's just was I was told, maybe they dont force everyone to take it. Some of the staff don't even know what they can and can't do, and what does or doesn't happen. My FYE professor told my class that none of the professors can count attendance towards the students grade. Which if funny because my other two professors were very strict about their attendance policy and would count it towards the students grade.
2.5) Sudden rule changes and inconvineces. As for my math class everything started out fine. There is the class its self and then a 30 mins break and then a "Lab" where students are forced to get their HOMEWORK done online (The book for this particular math class was almost $200, but it was only for the Pearsons registration so we can do our homework online. Now I'm stuck with a book we didn't even use, that I can't even sell online because the account isn't included. Did I mention the pages of this book arnt even held together by anything? You have to buy a 4 inch binder to put it in so you can use it.) Anyway, most of the students wanted to do their homework as HOME so no one ended up going to the lab. But one day half way through the semester the professor announces that he will be counting the lab for attendance as well as the class. The professors can just make up rules as they go if they see fit. It's ridiculous. I ended up failing this class because I didn't want to spend another 2 hours on campus, and do my HOMEWORK in my ACTUAL HOME.
3.) Communication (or lack there of) between administrative staff and students. My friend applied for for Tunxis to go this up coming fall. She applied later in the year (sometime in late may) and they were quick in their response to say she was accepted. However she never got her financial aid report from Tunxis and yes, she did apply. She called and they told her to wait and to wait and to wait. But the thing is, if you want to register for classes you need to pay THAT DAY. So she couldn't register for classes. So finally in mid august she gave up on waiting and emailed Tunxis admission and told them to withdraw her file.
Anyway, if you can go to Northwestern Community College (as I ended up doing), or Manchester Community College, please do. Even if it's a longer commute it will be worth it because Tunxis is certainly not worth the time and effort.
