Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

I think overall, CTC does a great job of providing a junior or community college experience to all students that attend it. I am happy to have chosen CTC as my college base for my degree program.
The online textbook was pretty nice, and my professor was very informative on what I needed to improve.
This was a great online course. I didn't expect to learn as much as I did from an online course vs. an in-class setting. Definitely recommend to others.
Very well done to the professors of CTC. I look forward for my next class.
I was initially intimidated by this class when I looked at the textbook, but it was very straightforward and easy to understand. VERY SATISFIED !!!
