3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the classes I have taken were okay. There were maybe three professors that actually listened to me about being flexible with assignments.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of the courses are hard to register for since there are many prerequisites for a certain course. The class sizes are average and best for each professor. Some of the professors I have taken do care about the course they teach. Maybe four of my professors actually really cared for the course they were teaching and the students they taught. Those four professors had an impact on me.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The prospects for jobs and/or internships are not that high. I have not really heard anything about either one. The quality of the career center and its services are average. The staff members in there do not really seem that interested with what they are doing.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The resources on campus are great. I am aware that the athletic centers not only focus on the sports but also the athletes. They have physical therapists that help with injuries. The student center is average, but the library does have plentiful resources.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with the financial aid office is normal. I did meet a setback recently. With the tuition, it is a bit hard to pay it off considering that my father is the only one providing for the family. It is understandable that the school rejected my claim for financial aid considering my father's income from last year. Yet, the office did not really help with finding any other option to help pay off my tuition.

Academic Experience: its fine,im not a math fan,and so theres a lot of math, im not quite sure what the specifics are,i go to school and then run home and go to work,and then run home and do homework,so as far as all the extras im not really involved in that much.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: the class registration process was good,im a vet so i have registration priority,the workload is pretty decent,compared to what i know other people have.I love writing papers,but i hate projects ,so it depends on what im doing if the work load is too much.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: i havent gotten to that place yet so i havent really studied them

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: its pretty diverse.A lot of gay and asian students,im assuming there's a decent level of acceptance.Not a lot of black students but im sure thats just because of the area.A few of the teachers express their disdain for religion,but i think thats just the way we are now days

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: the professors have been great,the veteran help has been pretty good,the website has been the worst,and has only gotten slightly better

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: i dont really know,but i know that on certain days,there are a lot of school prospects it seems

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: im not a fan of it,i like the classroom interaction,but its easier to manage i suppose

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: they seem to be fine,when ive needed help .Its easy to find stuff

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.
