I really enjoy CCP; I currently take online classes but have also taken classes at the Main campus. The variety of classes they offer is amazing, depending on your major and there are many options to get the class done. I love the new layout of the Main campus and distance education makes it really easy to still excel. I recommend CCP to everyone!
Review Community College of Philadelphia
Good college to attend! The teachers truly care. Some of the instructors come from other colleges like Temple, Univ. of Penn, etc. I still have a connection to a few of the instructors from my previous semesters, and still ask them for advice.
As a freshman attending a community college within a dull city, my expectations weren't very high. I had heard many rumors implicating that CCP was practically the '13th grade' and that your time will be easily consumed with the drama plaguing its students. It easily reaches out to many people because it is a small campus. The classes would be easy, the professors were lazy, and the overall experience would be reduced to regrets for not attending 'actual college', but I highly disagree. I am enrolled in the Honors Program, an intensive program for intellectuals who scored above average on the placement test. The environment is structured to bear resemblance to graduate school. I was fortunate to have a faculty that was passionate about teaching a very challenge curriculum, allowing me to experience new ways of thinking to which can actually be applied to my daily life. This has led me to believe that the Community College of Philadelphia offers more than what my expectations harbored if one applies their time wisely, along with making the right connections. The only major downside is that the school's physical structures are poor, some buildings worse than others. If I needed to save money, I would definitely apply again.
