Community College of Philadelphia had helped me to succeed as a student. It had saved me tons of money, time, and the professors are really excellent! When I went to school there, most of my professors were also teaching at other top Universities in Philadelphia. So, we got the same quality of teaching as other top universities with a lot less tuition! I really recommend Community College of Philadelphia. This school had helped me to be what I am today.

When I enrolled at Community College of Philadelphia, I expected a rudimentary, lacking college experience. This idea was based on stereotypes. On the contrary, CCP is fueled by a widely shared yearning for knowledge. CCP is strengthening the community through the hearts and minds of individuals. The school is a beautiful melting pot, celebrating diversity in every facet. The care with which my professors handle each class demonstrates their appreciation for the students' time.
After leaving Uarts in 2017, I believed I was neither capable nor deserving of a proper education. Community College of Philadelphia has instilled in me a furious drive to succeed. Not only that, but the assured knowledge that I CAN achieve whatever it is I choose to pursue. Within a month of being a CCP student, my outlook on life, education, and myself has been radically changed for the best. I am excited about the future and grateful for the present moment. I highly recommend this institution.
I love this school! Its close to where I live. They have a parking garage for students. The professors are very nice and helpful. They have learning labs where you can walk in and get tutored in whatever subject you need help in. They have counselors that are patient and there to listen to your concerns. The financial aid line is long, but its worth waiting in that line. They have a cafeteria with healthy and non healthy options to choose from.
