3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am taking History program as my major. The workload is reasonable and it is not that hard if we work on it. The curriculum of each class is understandable. All the facilities are really helpful because they are willing to offer professional opinion and aid to each student who needs help.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are really nice. They create a reasonable level of study's schedule to all students so they won't get lost. The workload is okay if we follow the study's schedule and go to class regularly. The school also hires tutors to help those students who need help. However, the registration process of classes isn't that great because most of the classes are very easy to get full.

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are nice because they will try their best to help students to achieve academic success.

Overall Experience: For my tuition expenses, my parents will afford most of it. I am also having a part time job to afford my books and other expenses.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Some of the students are good and friendly because they organize club and interact with other students. The rest of them are just on their own and care about nothing. Overall, all students are nice and easy going.

Academic Flexibility: I don't really know yet because I am not really to transfer to a 4 years university.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus resources are great. The teachers are really helpful and the counselling office is really willing to help students to solve their questions and problems.

Career Services: I think my school is helping me to transfer to a better school because they have a really good counselling office where students can get help there.

2 College Junior

Online Courses: I don't really like online courses because there is no direct communication with the teacher. As a verbal learner, I need to respond my teacher in order to learn the knowledge.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My school's tuition is reasonable because it only costs me 48 dollars per units. I am pretty like the Community College system because it is cheap.

Campus Resources: There is a variety of places where students such as myself could study and get help from tutors. I am currently in a program called "pathways" and in this program it offers me several good opportunities that help me succeed in my academic life.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition in Pasadena City College is average. The downside about financial costs in school is that financial aid is given a couple of weeks after school starts therefore in the first weeks tthere is no money for books and other school necessities.

Academic Experience: I am a freshman in Pasadena City College therefore I am taking GED requirements at the moment and haven't really took any class related to my major. But, in my future semesters I am excited to take child development courses.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Pasadena city college has a large about of great professors. Throughout my first year experience in this school I have not came acrossed any bad professor. One downside of this school is that the amount of students trying to add classes makes the class registration process a hassle. Many students are left with no classes and are left with classes they do not really need.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Pasadena City college has a variety of students from different cultures and backgrounds. I would say that mostly every student in PCC is dedicated and hardworking when it comes to school. There is not much interactions between students because it is mostly a commute school due to being a community college. It is best to be involve in school as much possible in order to meet people and interact with others.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The likelihood of students getting a career is very high. The value of a degree may not be quite as high as maybe from a university, but that is why we have a community college. Community college gives you the chance to transfer to a university to receive a higher education for your future career. The career center services are online, though I have not been to the career center, I can say they provides great resources online.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken an online course. I am not sure if I will in the future, but I most likely will.

Campus Resources: The resources on campus are significant. It really gives the students resources that they need. We even have a bookstore of books that are used, so we would have to purchase the expensive books online or at full price which is a much better deal. If you can't find something there is also a local bookstore that provides the same deals. I have seen the athletic center and it has a swimming pool, gym, and a field. We have a black box theatre and a computer labs, along with a music room with pianos. This community college is very fortunate to have all these resources.

Student Body: The students at Pasadena Community College are quite diverse. I do see about every race. In classes, such as english or subjects that have you communicating with your peers really brings out the character in a class. Students began to socialize and understand the culture of one another. I recently took a Theatre Arts Class and I believe this class just put aside differences in our ethnicity, politics, religious views, and sexual orientation and just found a common interest and bond to finish an assignment that just put our creative minds to work. I took an english class in the summer of 2014 and we read a book that covered every major part of history in the United States. We covered oppression, racism, feminism and he noticed in his days of teaching (he was a former veteran who could move like a 13 year old boy) that we have really progressed from days of racism and commended us for it.

Career Services: I am only a freshman in community college. I haven't experienced much as I am going to my Spring semester of college because we do not have Winter session.

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes and the curriculum are just awful in my opinion. It is frustrating already having to register later than everyone else and once all the good or okay classes are gone, you can only choose the rest of the open classes. The curriculum for an english class that I recently took was terrible. The teacher was not on top of things, extended every deadline, chose favorites, and gave unclear instructions. I asked for help multiple times only to be stuck with the same answer. I was not even sure he was going by the curriculum because he was very confused and often went on unnecessary tangents. I haven't had to deal with transfer credits, but I will soon in the following year.

Tuition & Financial Aid: In my opinion, I am receiving the education I am paying for, nothing more and nothing less. I would have applied for financial aid, but the process is just a waste of time. You wait in line for more than an hour to get each step done. Even when the answer could possibly or most likely be no. Currently I am taking my GE's and that will get me to my next step in my education. My tips for financial aid is provide more staff that could get the job done, so the students do not have to go around in circles asking the same questions.
