I absolutely LOVE PAC! The tuition is affordable. The school has the most amazing professors who take the time teaching everyone at different levels. The campus police make you feel so safe while attending their training. There are so many places to study on the beautiful campus and so many free resources provided to the community.
The only thing I would change about the Alamo Colleges is the applying and registering process, it's quite hectic. There's a lot of going back and forth with the campus but well worth it.

I loved the environment there and the student life was very active! There were plenty of student activities and educational events constantly going on especially with community involvement. Also, some of the best professors you'll ever have the honor of meeting!
When it was my first year it was very welcoming and everyone was friendly. All my teachers were great my classes were easy as well. I prefer to do work on campus because of the the people everyone likes to help and it helps me. It feels very safe all the time students don’t tend to be loud. Every staff member is helpful even when you’re not in their class. The campus food is even great and usual it’s not but it is!
