The worst staff, faculty is ok but employees make you wish that you moved far away from this garbage dump of a college.

Question
Community college is a great tool for thoseElectrical Engineering
Community college is a great tool for those of us that don't want to spend so much for a university.
FTCC is a hostile school with very few advocates for students. I have gone there for four years for different degrees and still don't have an advisor. When I ask to see one I am told to use the online portal. When I use the online portal it said I have not been assigned one and to contact them by phone. You are on your own at this school.

I never felt safe in certain areas around the school and avoided those areas like the cafeteria.
Choose wisely which community college you go to. A longer commute might be worth a safer and more student friendly school. I am going into the nursing program there and it seems like a totally separate entity.

Question
Initially I did not consider all of theBrightEducation
Initially I did not consider all of the negative reviews but after a staff member told me that faculty assistance or consideration depends on their mood and if they like you. This is the 2x a comment like has been stated by staff. I personally feel that many of the staff give conflicting information, that is if you receive anything other than "I don't know" and obviously do not care about your success...just another college with pretty adjectives that lure you in...they do not give a damn and it is highly possible the favoritism places a factor in who gets assistance or consideration
