| Baylor Univesity students as well as VETERANS from the armed forces have learned that the Staff at TSTC has been swindling them for money. They have been failing students in the Aviation Department that are in Pilot Training, because they know that they have money. The Baylor Students fought and Got their Money Back. However, The Veteran's Affairs does not stand up for the Veterans who have put the uniform on and have either stared death in the face, have been Shot at or have done the unthinkable. TSTC would rather piss on Veterans than actually help them succeed, and finish flight training, just like they have been pissing on Baylor Students, until the students stood up against them. The Veterans Affairs had better look into getting back money that the School locks in the FLight ACCOUNT for Veterans or the word will get out to the veterans to not attend TSTC. They are a controlling interest driven school that has tried to control Baylor Student Aviation as well as their ability to train at other Local Flight Schools. The VA needs to take the money out of the Flight Training Program and let that Program at TSTC Suffer and give it to other local flight schools in the Area. The Facaulty is undeserving, pretends to be professional and could give a damn about you. |

| I see a bunch of negative comments here and I do have to step in and completely disagree with them. It seems the majority of the comments are about computer science, so thats not real relative in the real world anyway....jk. |
Anyway, I graduated from the Architectural/Civil Design and drafting program back in 03, and things have been absolutely great since. Ive had a very successfull career so far, and love what I do. I am a commercial plumbing designer, and work in the city of Houston. I make just as much or even more money than most of my buddies with big degrees from A&M, UT, Texas State, etc. I have TSTC-Waco to thank for getting my career started, and the excellent drafting design program there. I havent spent one minute in the real world working on Architectural or Civil, but the experience and degree from TSTC got my foot in the door at an MEP (Mech, Elec, Plumbing) firm and things have just escalated since.
If your considering going to school here, please know that all degrees and programs are not bad, and that you can really get a lot out of this school and have a great career after. I am very proud to say that I'm a graduate of this college. The only problem that I do agree with is the social life and extra curricular activities. I lived way out in the country with 2 other guys, and all my friends were Baylor students, which I went out with and did activities with them. Its like I was an actual Baylor student but went to school at TSTC. There definately should be some changes there when it comes to that. Nobody wants to stay on that campus and theres nothing to really take part in there. You dont really get in touch with anyone in the school except the people in your major that you see everyday all day, and thats not right.

| The gaming program is constantly changing its classes. I've seen the way projects graded go from the final is pass or fail, or being based on what you can show you can do. There are a few occasions where you will be informed of homework or tests VERY last minute.|
There are also some classes to teach you how to make 3d models and use digital painting programs. You as the student must research how to do more advanced things for all classes yourself.
The focus currently is to learn to use FREE development tools to make a game -for pc, console, or mobile devices- to make you a one-man game designer. Blender and Unity 3d mainly at the moment, until something better comes along.
You will be doing tutorials posted by people on the internet as assignments to learn the programs and MUST do so in order to learn and apply your skills in class for projects.
Classes for this program will require most, if not all of your free time to get better. You can only get help outside of class from fellow students.
You will be spending a bit of money on things for the class sometimes. If you want to go to any industry conferences you have to go to Austin, and then it will cost from 100 to 500 or more dollars. If you want to meet or get advice from people in the industry this is the only way, unless something free comes up that year.
I started with a full class of about 20+ people my first semester. At the end during final projects there were 6 of us left. Saw the same results the next semester. People in lower semester classes will sometimes get bounced around into higher semester classes to fill their quota so the classes stay open. You must keep up your morale. Classes are also sometimes set up horribly. Just hope that no one cancels your morning class after you drove an hour and a half from your town just to be on time for...well, not your 2 hour morning class.
School life is dull on campus, there are break-ins even with police supposedly everywhere (was once in class,after lunch, with someone who lived on campus when he was informed of all his games and flat screen tv were stolen from his apartment), and you have to drive 10 miles to go to the movies, mall, shop around, or go someplace good to eat. Try the program at your own risk.
