Then go check out Southwestern Community College. The faculty and staff are amazing and always willing to answer your questions. They offer many classes online making it even easier to attend college, especially while working. Also the cost of tuition is about half the price when compared to local universities, so it's a great place to get your core courses. They also have evening classes as well as traditional on campus day classes. And they have smaller campus locations located here in Bryson City, in Franklin, and in Cherokee, again making it easy to attend.
