4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: this campus really gets to know the students. here you are not just a number but a person.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: i have been a little flustered at the fact that many of my credits that i have earned elsewhere have only been counted as extracarricular and so they do not count but i have learned to accept it especcially since i have changed majors so some things do not match up

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: the computer network is topnotch here at PWSCC with tech support 24/7 and has always been available to help with any technical problems presented to the students here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: while the facilities do not include a library or an actual gym there are some reconstructions going on at the facility to fix the physical fitness center. the Tech support however is very excellent and we have the fastest internet here in valdez.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: As far as I know, I may be the only one right now going for the Bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences through first getting an Associate's through PWSCC and then transferring to UAA for the rest of the classes. It's unusual, and I know it will take a bit longer, just because I have a full life of work and family, and therefore can't take a full course load every semester, but it works for me.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: There are all types of students here, older like me, typical younger students, and moms and folks taking classes to improve their work situations. There are lots of things you can participate in on campus or in the community, but no pressure to do so.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: While living in this sweet rural town, I can get my first two years of basics done, and then I can transfer to UAA and get the rest of my degree requirements done via long distance classes, with some help from the folks here, since it's part of UAA.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are 3 computer labs on campus and one in the student apartment complex. Internet is fast and reliable, and the IT department is always available if I have an issue. We can print stuff for classes, and if we need to print or scan or fax stuff for personal reasons, we can pay a tiny fee and they help you do it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They have a distance delivery lab option, where you go on SecondLife and complete science labs as your avatar. It's super unusual and makes learning the stuff more fun, too. I think it's amazing!
There's a little coffee shop on campus, which makes life nicer, too.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They have a stellar museum with Alaska Native arts and also natural history. Really well-done and it's free!
The student apartments are clean and spacious, and right across the street from the grocery store. Very convenient.
This town is really friendly and beautiful, too. I live it here.

Student Body: Diversity Is Average – This is an interesting place to be in regards to student body. There is no out of state tuition with draws people from all over the world to get the Alaskan experience with a low cost of education. With people from all over it bring a great diversity of religion, economic, and political views. This is an area that is not very religious and definitely not Christian so acceptance as a Christian that is outspoken is not accepted very well at all.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Class Flexibility – Having the ability to have both in small classes and some online experience has made this an incredible place to learn. You have in some cases 1 professor to 3 o 4 students. Great focused learning.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have 4 computor rooms, and 6 computer techs when we have a problem with even our personal computers we can take them and get help. We can print free. I love my school.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Job Prospects – The job prospects for post graduation are tremendous. I am working towards a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant degree in which there is a big demand for in any state if I were to choose to move. This is why I chose this field and happy that they had the program available.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Acedemic Experience – I have really enjoyed the classes that I have had to this point. I am earning my degree online which has been wonderful for my schedule. Most all of my professors have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable with the courses and online audio conferencing classes. This has been a valuable experience for me.

College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: To this point I have not had financial aid. I have had a small scholarship and have been able to pay for the rest myself. I am now in the position to need to find assistance. Therefore I cannot give a grade regarding the process for financial aid.
