I have nothing but great things to say about Phoenix College! It has given me the opportunity to re-enter the academic world in the most gentle, all inclusive, and affordable way. The professors, as well as the counselors, have all been very patient with me in so far as I started in Criminal Justice, switched to Social Work, and then back to finally whole heartedly committing to a degree in Administration of Justice. It gave me a chance to really experience both programs in a short period of time, and everyone was so supportive and encouraging. I love having my efforts acknowledged by being put on the Presidents Honor Roll, as well as being invited each semester to join Phi Theta Kappa Honor society. As an older student I feet valued and accepted which has been an added bonus. Changing careers at this point in life is challenging in many respects but thanks to everyone at Phoenix College it is an experience that I love!

I have been a part of both the School of Social Work and Administration of Justice. I am currently in the Justice program and will graduate with an Associates and a few semesters. My experience in both programs is that they offer many outside opportunities to attend special programs. In my current program they offer opportunities to hear experts in specific fields. Most recently I missed the opportunity to attend a lecture by someone from the field that worked as a Victims Advocate which is something I am considering. It was well publicized in class as well as on the bulletin boards, I was just unable to make it work with my schedule. Every professor I have had, has been extraordinary in my opinion. I have found them all to be very approachable, and wonder of wonder, they all know my name, even from semesters past!

I am a computer information systems major at, Phoenix College. The experience at, PC is getting better this past year as 2012. Not a great place if you're looking for the &quot;college experience&quot;, but you will get experience. No matter what class you take you will be subjected to diversity of every type!

My major gets a 21/2 out of 5. There's. I've had bad professors and the curriculum could use a major upgrade. There's not that many classes related to my major which makes it hard to stay passionate about it. More like losing sight of the north star so to speak. Pros are, there are a lot of quite places to study out side if you're into that and people are friendly and have an open mind.

Phoenix College really needs to and has been taking steps to be cleaner and be and have a higher standard being that they are an institution of higher living.Frankly it's gross, everything, the bathrooms are disgusting, I've only found 2 clean bathrooms on the entire campus. There's trash lying everywhere, it's dark which leaves you freaked out at night due to poor lighting. It's old and crappy.

All in all, They are making progress which will help their image. There's many pros and cons to attending PC, I believe in Fall of 2013, the pros will out weigh the cons.
