4 College Freshman

Career Services: the staff want the students to transfer as soon as possible and to get good GPA's

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: professors often do not care about what the students learn and how they learn

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: professors often do not care and are very disrespectful to the students

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: many of the resources are found only if the student digs through the school website

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I'm a first time student, so I haven't had the trouble of transferring credits. Other than that, classes are flexible, but not all, because some of my courses tend to clash with my family's own schedule.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is very diverse and it offers a lot of help. Their resources are also easy to access and they also offer commuting programs to most students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My only complaint would be the lack of some math classes. There should be more time slots for these types of courses. Other than that, everything is good. There's a huge selection of classes, the professors are knowledgeable and fair.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I've had two online courses during my first semester as a college freshman, and my experience with it was quite good. I was able to pass both of my online classes with flying colors and communication isn't a problem.

4 College Junior

Student Body: I'm not the most social individual in my school, but my school usually holds small fairs. They also have this annual fair wherein they welcome incoming freshmans that will attend in the near future. Racism isn't a problem in my school, too.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had a few troubles with the financial aid office, but those were all small ones and they were quickly fixed. Financial aid is usually based on grades.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't completely checked it , but it seems quiet confusing. It helps quiet a bit, but it needs to be more organized, in my opinion.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors, at least the one that I have spent time with, are very professional and fair. For math, there's a lot of tutoring sessions in my school that they typically offer for free. Registration process is easy, unless you have additional documents to give.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Since my major is math based, workload is more than usual. Despite that, my current math professor offers help and there are tutoring sessions that are held within my school.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school's library is mostly up to date. The campus' wi-fi is quiet stable. Some buildings are quiet old, but they are still clean and do not look like their age.

College Senior

Overall Experience: I haven't yet reached this point therefore i see no need for a rating.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have mixed feelings on these online courses. I really did like my online class because I could do it in the comfort of my own home. I found it difficult to have a student/professor relationships because it was online. Some people like to take their sweet time when they reply to you.

5 College Senior

Student Body: They support the LGBT students, and i think this is amazing. We are about to have a gay prom and I'm really looking forward to that. They're very open, very friendly, and extremely helpful. I got to meet our school's student body president and he was very friendly.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I has a few issues with my financial aid. It was a nightmare, I was fortunate enough however to get it resolved. When asking for help in the financial office, it's important that you try to go really early because they are always so busy.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't heard of this before. I'm not sure how to answer this, therefore a rating isn't applicable.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being an Art major can be so stressful and time consuming, however the art staff are so amazing. They know we're all students and have other class assignments. They are wiling to help just as long as you ask them. I haven't however heard of any internships, but mostly because I haven't gone to the trouble of looking for any.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The school is so impacted with students that's hard to get classes. I was fortunate enough to join a club called pathways. They were such a huge help. They helped me get priority registration, and offered tutoring. If it wasn't for them college would have been a struggle. For me, it was an easy process.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: I love the staff. They have been such a huge help. They have opened so many doors to me such as giving me the opportunity of being a student worker. I've become very well connected with a lot of the staff, they are so friendly, always willing to lend a helping hand. I have had some trouble with the professors but its no something that couldn't be resolved. Over all I have had a great experience at PCC.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Classes fill up really fast if you don't have an early registration date, and the ones that have priority usually get the classes needed for transfer. This results in overpopulated classrooms and stressful environments during the first week. Schedules are manageable to work around depending on the type of work you do, with some offered during the evenings and weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Immersing myself to different clubs made me understand and be a part of different cultures, especially since it is a community college. Of course if I would do it all over again I probably will go straight to a university due to the time required here just to transfer out, but my personal and student experience were great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only had one class that I regret taking and it was a pass/no pass non-credit counseling class. Other than that everything else was great. I only look up my professor's ratings on the internet once I'm finished with their class and most are accurate representations of their good work, with some needing more credit they deserve. Class sizes are usually average sized (20-30), but there are some classes that reaches more than 100 if the space allows it.
