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.
It's a very friendly and easy to navigate school, with nice staff and great professors! The school is clean with excellent maintenance,not to mention the food their is great. There are fellow high school students, like me, but we are mature and focused. There is also a gym and swimming pool on campus!
