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 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.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I am apart of a nursing club, which is also giving back to the community. I love my classmates, during hard times we all keep each other encouraged.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Because I attend a community college, I am introduced to people of all ethnicities and all ages, and because of this there is no "typical student". I think one of the great things about PCC is the opportunity to be taught in a diverse learning environment and this college is the perfect place to become more accepting of other people and their opinions. Many of my classes try their best to incorporate the importance of equality and I think majority of the people around me agree that this community does a wonderful job of enforcing that.

Because Pasadena City College is a community college, there isn't a ton of school involvement. But because PCC is the third largest community college in the nation, there is at least more involvement than your typical community college.

Often the student body arranges many school activities through student organizations; however, students most likely either ignore the activities or are not interested in them.
