I like CCP because it's a great college for a young adult to start their college journey, I suggest everyone should start there pathway there. Most of the professors are so kind and willing to help! I just started my CCP experience in Fall 2019! I know I'm going to miss this college so much after I transfer. I wish I can attend another two more years! It's amazing at the main campus. You will meet so many people, you will learn a lot not just college education! I'm excited and looking forward for another year! One of changes I was is better cafeteria food. I am proud to be CCP student! #ROAR!

I am currently a senior in high school, who is in a program called SYOP (Senior Year Only Program). The program allows students to attend a community college to earn college credits while earning high school credits. Attending the Community College of Philadelphia was a great experience for me. The professors are great with their students & are always there for them when needed. The students themselves are friendly as well. Although it is a Community College, there are plenty of opportunities to clubs, events, etc.
I really love attending CCP. The school gives students various opportunities to experience a true college life experience. There are discussions, training's, clubs and community service opportunities available. I also love the diversity of the people employed and attending the college. I have met great faculty and students while attending f all different cultures and backgrounds. Overall, I appreciate the low costs for classes and the scholarship opportunities available to me.
