I loved going to PVCC! As a concurrently enrolled student, I started there when I was 14 years old. They were always very accommodating to me and they always helped me find the resources I need to be successful. The professors there really do care about the students. They always provide office hours and are willing to set up meetings with you for your success. I would recommend this for anyone who does not want the full "live on-campus" college experience.
Review Your College
As I mentioned before, I am doing a joint NAU program with PVCC. It's a great program that gives you the opportunity to get your bachelor from NAU in only 1 year as long as you meet the requirements at the PVCC level. The staff is amazing and are always helpful. There a endless resources for the students to take advantage of and its a great deal. The staff apart of my criminal justice program are awesome. Some of the teachers at PVCC also teach some of the NAU classes as well so that's nice to have a teacher you like be able to continue teaching you!
All though I am only a part time student at Paradise Valley Community College I can say that it is an awesome community college. It has many different clubs and activities that meet basically every week. The college has an amazing financial and advisory department dedicated to helping and providing for your every need. And most importantly all the Professors for the most part are not only very intelligent but are also, very cool!! They understand that life happens sometimes and that once in a while everyone makes mistakes. so I give this place 5/5 stars!!
