This school has such a wide variety of students with different backgrounds. They give students a great opportunity to make friends by providing in school activities and also out school activities. One of the things the school should work on is creating parking that are closer to the main buildings that students have classes in.

I'm more motivated to get good grades & take advantage of all the resources & opportunities Pierce has to offer. I have a new found faith in myself as a student, which I didn't have throughout high school. I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to, & that is mainly because my professors instilled that confidence in me. They are really there to help you along your journey all you have to do is take that first step and show them that you are serious about your educational endeavors.

Pierce College has been very beneficial to my education. I am 17 years old, and a senior in high school. Because of Pierce College's running start program, I will be graduated from high school and have received my AA degree all by 17 years old. Pierce has provided the opportunity for me to get a taste of higher education before my peers in high school, this allows me to take classes in fields I might be interested in my future. Pierce College has also provided the opportunity for me to build relationships with people from many diverse groups, help out within my community, and also receive cheap deals on fun things to do (movie tickets, ice-skating, trips to Seattle, plays, community service events, concerts, etc). Pierce College has also given me the opportunity to be well educated on cultural and societal issues, and has given me an outlet and a voice to help within those problems that are within our society. I would definitely recommend Pierce College to high schooler's wanting to get a head start on higher education, and anybody else looking for an inexpensive, creditable, college. My experiences with Pierce College will stick with me and benefit me for the rest of my life.
