Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes at Pasadena City College is great! They offer so many different times to work around our busy schedules. They also offer classes at other campus' in the area, so that transportation time can be cut in half for students. The only hassle I had was trying to drop a field studies class that hadn't started yet with a refund. It was a 4 day field trip that was scheduled to be in mid-April, and when I tried to drop it in March, they wouldn't let me because I was supposed to drop it by the regular class drop deadline date which was in January.

Online Courses: The most valuable thing I learned from my online course is time management. Since the workload is doubled for the week, I had to arrange my time accordingly to make sure I was able to complete the work in time. The teacher made sure that we knew she was available anytime we needed her, and even uploaded a video of herself to put a face to her name. She said we could come visit her during her office hours if we had any further questions or needed help on any difficulties we were facing. We didn't do to much group work, but every week we would post a response to an assignment and have a discussion with other students.

Career Services: The career center has been somewhat helpful for me during my time at Pasadena City College. There are some faculty members that are really friendly and informative, while others aren't as sociable and only offer information about the area they specialize in.

Overall Experience: The quality of teachers that I have had is amazing. While there were teachers I wasn't able to "click" as much with, I created a special relationship with many of them and they still keep in contact with me even after the class has finished. They are very flexible, understanding, and motivational. They seem like they really care about you and your future, which I feel is very important because many 4-year Universities have professors that host 100+ student class sessions. There has been a course for everything that I have been interested in thus far, so I feel that the variety is vast. I love the way the classes have been set up, they are not too big and not too small, with the largest class being around 40-45 students.

Overall Experience: So far it seems that the quality of the alumni network is great. At one of the English Award Ceremonies, the Dean of the English Department mentioned that if we ever want to come back to Pasadena City College to teach in the future, there will be a special opening for us. One of my English professors even suggested that I observe her teaching in the future to help me develop a better understanding of what responsibilities and tasks she must take on as an English professor in college.

Academic Experience: I love being an English major thus far, and can't wait to complete other English classes in the coming semesters. The teachers have been so helpful and fun, that most of the work doesn't seem like schoolwork at all. The workload is bearable because you are having a good time doing it.

Overall Experience: At first I felt embarrassed that I was going to attend a community college while the rest of my friends went to 4-years. After spending a few semesters at PCC, I realized how lucky I was to be there, because the teachers are some of the best people I have ever met.

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credits is pretty quick. I brought a copy of my transcript and a representative used ASSIST or a similar program to determine what my classes my credit from other schools I can receive

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some professors just give out As to everyone and anyone while others may be more of a challenge or almost impossible (for same courses)

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: School is tries to be STEM friendly by offering some tutoring programs, but a lot of the classes are spread out so you do not learn very efficiently. Curriculum is pretty easy unless you have a professor who is an unreasonably hard and strict grader.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school spends more of its resources to the arts and neglects STEM a bit. I would not recommend going here if you are interested in doing competitive STEM majours -- otherwise this school gets the job done.

Online Courses: Most of the time, courses in a classroom are just as effective as online ones.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors can be moody, but most of the time they're professional. Every once in a while you get a professor who just doesnt care.

Academic Flexibility: The classes are few and far in between. with two satellite campuses PCC offers other classes at different locations to help meet the needs of students.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have only taken two online courses, and they were both easy to manage and handle. the only thing is you have to stay on top of your work. it can catch up to you at the end

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Careers choices are good here. they have plenty of degrees to choose from so if you are undecided then it would be a good choice to come here.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my professors, all of the ones i have taken have helped me tremendously.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: i am an Kinesiology major, and the requirements are so difficult. A lot of science, math ans stats.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Pasadena City College, I played football here so i had a little more help and resources than other students. But i dont feel like that was why i truly loved my school. Iv had great professors and not so great professors, but all of my professors taught me life lessons that i can take outside of the classroom. The resources on the campus are rich if you know where to look.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: The online site we use for most courses offered is called Canvas and I have become very comfortable using it and very skilled in using it effectively. I am not so good working online but I got the hang of it fairly quickly and I think the site is very useful and user friendly. I use it almost every day now for even my regular courses.
