Finding a college is hard by itself, you are making a life choice that will effort your future. Finding a college is especially hard when you also have to worry about living by yourself and taking care of yourself. Those are both hard not only to do by themselves, but also those happening at the same time.CCAC South makes it easy because I'm close to home so i don't have to pay to live in a small dorm with a bunch of roommates but it also gives me the college experience by meeting people through my classes but being able to go home to my bed at the end of the day. The professors are very nice and when first applying and getting started all the workers where very nice! very happy with my decision as making this school my starting school until I'm ready to make the next step on moving out!
Review Community College of Allegheny County
Flexible scheduling, with many classes offered in hybrid format or online. A handful of campuses (though I completed my classes online or at the Main Campus on the North Side) Main Campus is accessible via mass transit and a short walk. Many campus resources, including tutoring and remedial education. Offers classes over the summer, as well as many community, continuing education, and non-credit options.
I liked the simplicity of applying for loans, renting/returning/purchasing books, registering for classes, class sizes, campus library quietness, and food. However, some advisors were not as helpful as others. I would recommend being assigned an advisor rather than having to look for one myself. It was difficult to find one available that was able to tell me what classes I still needed.
