Now This Is What One Calls Diverse! CCP is a diverse place. Most people who attend morning classes are teens or are in their early twenties but there are still adults. Many adults attend night school though. The school environment is a fun place to be in. One gets to see many interesting things. In the ethnicity place, there are people from different cultures and backgrounds like Spanish, Indian, White, Black, Asian. You name it and CCP has it. Economically, most students receive financial aid. To finalize, community college is where one can learn many things and helps one to be open minded.

I have had several experiences with financial aid offices at other universities, but the financial office here is by far the worst. You are always on hold for a tremendous amount of time, and that's actually if you can get through. When they finally answer most of the reps seem like the have attitudes or don't want to be bothered. They always give out the bare minimum and general information. It's pretty much up to the students to be in top of their financial aid situation because they don't seem to care.

I have also left multiple messages for the financial aid coordinator and never received a call back. To add to that I was due to receive my pheaa grant back in November and its now January and there is still no sign of it. I have never had to wait until after the semester has ended to receive my financial aid at any other school. This is just ridiculous!

Some students enter the community college to further their education in a specific field they're interested in, but that's not me. I'm interested in various fields of study so I've take the root of a Lib Art student. I've found that I enjoy the study of new languages, and so intend on pursuing this. My previous and current curriculum's consisted of Spanish, French, Portuguese, and even a bit of Chinese! The workload is anything but small, but since I truly enjoy it, it becomes less work and more like a hobby.
