4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's hectic to be my specific major at my school because of the difficulties of the classes I had to take and was extremely stressed about that. It wasn't any fun taking hard classes for my major due to how my professors wanted me to hand in all of my assignments. My unique aspects of my program, workload, curriculum, facilities, and job opportunities are challenging and stressful because it was hard to keep my free time and schoolwork in balance. I had to push myself to go to tutoring to get help with all of my assignments for all of my classes instead of doing them on my own without any help. I also had to push myself to ask my professors for help, so I wouldn't fall behind in all of my schoolwork.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Community College of Philadelphia was great and stressful because I had to focus on my homework during the day, during the afternoon, and during the night. I even got up early in the morning to start on them. My favorite experience was performing on stage with my colleagues, and the production of the Red Oleanders play was fantastic when we all stayed in character as we played different roles in that production. Creating events for this school makes it unique because it keeps every student out of trouble and helps them explore their options in what they want to do for their careers. I would choose my school again if I could do it all over because if I failed a class, get put on academic probation, or lose my financial aid, I would have to reapply for financial aid for each semester I missed and take a class over until I get a better grade for it.

Academic Flexibility: I was able to schedule classes that were convenient. I wish that the school would release more names of the teachers when scheduling for classes ahead of time, though. Sometimes, I'll have a nice class time, but I would find out the name of the teacher so late. Not all teachers there are good at teaching.

Overall Experience: I love the classes. They aren't to big. Most of my classes had no more than 30 students. The professors are average; some are great in that they take the time to help and get to know you, but there are bad ones. Make sure to look up the teachers before taking them if you can. It is a life saver. The courses are also average, some have better departments and employees than others. The bio department wasn't the best at helping.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I joined my program because at the time they did not have a biology program. My workload was moderate. I was in Culture Science and Technology, and the work wasn't to much or to little. I liked my program, some of the teachers weren't good, but most of the ones I had my time in the program were great (I was picky), but there aren't that many jobs (that I know of) that are offered in my area. It is unique because not that many schools offer my major.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experience was okay. I met some great friends there, and the price is affordable. Getting involved or having people you know (friends) will make the experience better, but there aren't that many fascinating clubs there, or events. It's not the worst place to be, and the college is what you make it. There are a lot of amazing workers and teachers there who will do their best to help you succeed. The school is flexible. What makes the school unique is its affordability and the classes that you take. Some of the teachers there are amazing, and also make attending the school a breeze. The food isn't the best ( I don't eat the cafe food, it's not that bad but it could be better) but is expensive. The school is good to go to if you're not looking for a quality campus experience, and you just want the degree and benefits. I am glad that I chose to go there first because I got my gen ed classes out of the way before transferring, but I wouldn't go there again unless I had to or just wanted another degree in something.

Online Courses: But being inside the classes would be a better experience

Overall Experience: The affordability and flexible schedule make my school great. The professors are also genuinely good people. I feel so relaxed at my school. I get to pick all my classes, the times and days I wish to come it. If I had to start all over again at my school I would, because the application process and placement testing was so easy and it went by quick.

Academic Flexibility: Super flexible scheduling options! Definitely one of the major selling points of CCP besides the affordability.

Career Services: I have not used the Career services office at all yet, but they do offer job fairs and resume help.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy CCP; I currently take online classes but have also taken classes at the Main campus. The variety of classes they offer is amazing, depending on your major and there are many options to get the class done. I love the new layout of the Main campus and distance education makes it really easy to still excel. I recommend CCP to everyone!

Overall Experience: I think having an AA is a good thing for entry level positions, however, I think most students transfer to a 4 year school from CCP.

Academic Experience: Very good professors who aren't just giving busy work when you get past intro classes. It's a good amount of work to do in a given week and it's definitely college level. I enjoy all my classes and the shorter term classes push you to work hard and do well.

Overall Experience: I started at CCP after going to a big university and wish I would have went to CCP before the university because it would have saved me a lot of money. It also is a good place to begin and get into the flow of doing coursework, without the distraction of on campus housing and other things that Colleges are known for. I would recommend to anyone to start at CCP and then transfer; it makes sense both financially and academically.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience in the class wasn't the greatest neither the worst. The professor puts up a solid strong attempts of helping you get what's being taught. And they have the best way of making sure you aren't falling behind.

Career Services: They don't have anything for post graduates.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: They don't really offer much. The workload is cool..

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a average experience with school. The teachers are really understandable and all have a common goal of helping you reach the next level. The benefits of going to the school as far as the cafeteria and the gyms are great. They help you stay active and more of a healthy life.
