2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Most of the staff that is hired to teach online classes just like busy work most of the time. And some will throw in multiple group projects for online class. Meeting in person for a group project is difficult enough, and online class group projects are just ludicrous.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is good. But financial aid can sometimes be confusing and difficult to deal with. They send out their financial aid in waves, so sometimes you will have no money and aid for the beginning few weeks of school for your books and materials if you're caught in the later waves.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus activities here often occur sporadically, but the student government always tries to make programs or events that bring the students together. The library is nice to study and hold study groups within as well.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: People don't usually hang out a lot around campus, but it is up to you to find your group and niche. Campus opportunities include several clubs and student government committees and programs.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It really depends on what you put into your experience here. You have to make the effort to network and open your mind to new possibilities and new people here. Networking is everything.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload is manageable, but you will once in a while get a teacher who insists on overloading students with homework. Political Science majors concern themselves more with student government than other majors, however.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registration process is quite cutthroat, the professors are either really good or mediocre here, and workloads/special programs are relatively manageable.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most of the time professors are willing to accommodate your schedule as long as it is a legitimate reason and you had alerted them a reasonable amount of time ahead.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not yet had the chance to use these services.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Being that it is a transfer school, students here usually don't take the time to enter clubs and extracurricular activities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: In a lot of the general education classes that I have take I have found that a lot of the students just want to get in and out of those classes and don't seem to care about getting everything they can from those classes. On the other hand in other classes, such as in my art history and art classes, the students seem to be more involved and interested in what it is that they are learning.

Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Pasadena City College doesn't provide a major in the field I am pursuing but it the classes and workload at PCC was very helpful in providing me with what I needed to transfer to a university that will provide me with a major in art history.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I don't know about much of the academics provided outside of art history, but as of the classes given for art and art history the academics offered are really great, and there are a lot of options. The professors for these classes are either experts in their fields and love what they do and teach, so you feel that you are getting the most out of the time your send in class.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I transfered to a 4 year pretty easily, but as of how the quality of the career center, alumni network, and job prospects I am not applicable because I never took advantage of those services.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I work off and on so the flexibility of classes and work wasn't a hassle at all for me.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Pasadena City College just finished building a new visual arts building that has great new spaces, a gallery, and amazing new work ares and materials.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Pasadena City College's tuition in my opinion was very straight forward. I believe that from the schooling and knowledge I received while attending PCC was worth the amount of money paid per each semester.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: The resources on the campus are very well provided for and are very useful to the students. The library doesn't only provide students with great recourses for research but also a wonderful place to sit and study. Pasadena City College has just upgraded their football and soccer field, and the student center is both easy to get to and the people working there are always willing to help with any question.

5 College Senior
