Community College of Allegheny County Reviews
I think this college is a hidden gem at an unbeatable price! With the cost of colleges being off the charts nowadays, I'm surprised everyone planning on a 4-year degree doesn't come here and take all their general studies classes first and then transfer them. Nobody cares where an Engineer took English 101 or Economics. In addition, the professors here rival any around and some of them also teach at the "much more expensive" colleges in the area. It is a fantastic place!
CCAC South is a fantastic place to start your education! The student life office is amazing if you are looking to get involved on campus. Faculty are kind and helpful. The Honors Program is phenomenal and gives you amazing chances for advancement. You will have no struggle to find parking unlike some Pittsburgh colleges. There are always activities to participate in, and a good bit of free food too.
The atmosphere is exactly how you'd expect. A community college on the north shore. Surprisingly, the student life is pretty diverse and plentiful depending non how involved you get/your interests. There are tons of clubs. I think the best feature of the school is the free tutors on hand whenever you need them. If you need help with homework or a project or literally anything, you can just walk into the Math Café and ask around, and they will very likely find someone to assist you. The food is decent and reasonably priced. Professors are hit or miss when it comes to discipline, ability to be reached outside of class, etc. Just check ratemyprofessor beforehand.
