3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At times, unorganized and frustrating.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Prescott does not have an on campus fitness center

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We only have one organized team, which is the Mountain Biking Team. I wish we had more diversity in sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Prescott College gives you the unique experience that no other college can offer. They do this by having excellent faculty who teach through experiential education. For example, someone that is studying Adventure Education or Outdoor Recreation is not qualified to graduate until they have completed the Adventure Education Semester, which involves learning and teaching others skills such as backpacking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and so on. Prescott College has a sensational Environmental Studies program, which is what I am in currently. I hope to obtain an emphasis in my course of study in Wilderness & Parks Management.

Overall Experience: So far my college experience here at Prescott College has been great! I have small class sizes, so one on one with the professor is easy. What makes my school unique is how hands on we are in our classrooms and curriculum. our courses aren't strictly lecture based, actually they rarely are. My classes are really interactive and offer flexibility in your learning style. I would definitely choose my school if i could do it all over again, the only thing i would change would the orientation offered at the school was somewhat difficult for me. Because my school is outdoor based and environmentally conscious, out orientation is a three week backpacking trip that I wasn't nearly prepared for. But otherwise our classes are really informative and after we learn as much as we can we go outside or act out what we learned in real life whether its about math, animal behavior or sciences.

Off-Campus Housing: Its across the board but expect to pay at least $300 a bedroom a month minimum and start looking early. There's a facebook page "Prescott College Off-campus Housing" that will be super helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Alfonso's Alfonso Burrito. It isn't on the menu and it is under $10 for an arm long burrito with everything on it. Get it and you will thank me.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Most of the RAs look the other way for a lot of things so just don't be stupid or get caught by a faculty member. So basically don't be stupid.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Up till about the halfway point through the semester there are parties every weekend after that they are more sporadic but there are often at least one or two things going on, except for during block. The parties tend to be very relaxed and theme parties are common. The best places vary with the kids living there at the time but the dip house, the panda house, the mansion, and casa de chaos all tend to be solid.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They really work with you to get you as much aid as they can and they offer endowed scholarships for you to apply for every year on top of the scholarships in the aid package you are first offered.

Campus Food: The menus are great they are flexible and you can make most things your own. I often double up the meat, but they also offer options for gluten free, vegan and vegetarian too. They serve breakfast all day and there isn't anything I have had that I wouldn't eat again though I must recommend The Prescott, or the smoked turkey with chipotle mayo.

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice and are well kept. The RAs tend to be good people and are personable. I would recommend the dorms to most incoming students but if you are older than the typical freshman ages I say steer clear.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm coming from Silicon Valley, CA, so the prices cannot be beat for what you get, in my opinion.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Good for school environment and study ethics.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have toured the school, met counselors and staff as well as students. This year will be my first year at the school. The community is fantastic.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have club sports like skiing and mountain biking, and many students facilitate sports off campus like ultimate frisbee, softball or outdoor sports (rock climbing, hiking, etc). But we have a lack of organized sports, which is not terribly detrimental for the students at Prescott College

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is strict with problems involving use of drug and alcohol but are very lenient in student-related problems and are open to hearing student voice's to any problems happening on campus

3 College Senior

Technology: The library has mac and PC computers. The macs tend to fill up the fastest but there tend to always be PC computers available. There is a tech lab that is a quiet place to work that doesn't get utilized nearly enough by students. Most students tend to use their own computers. You can rent out laptops if yours breaks or you need one for a short period of time.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing has been relatively easy in the past but I hear it is getting slightly more difficult. There are lots of apartments and old cute houses available. It is definitely much cheaper prices than I am used to coming from a big city. When I got to Prescott, I was able to sign a lease and move in right away. My landlord has been incredible. I definitely recommend renting from landlords as opposed to renting companies. I have heard bad things about multiple rental companies in Prescott. Parking is easy in most areas and there is most likely a grocery store in your neighborhood.
