Paradise Valley Community College Reviews
Paradise Valley community college is filled with opportunity. The professors genuinely care about each individual's success. There are various courses to choose from and a very diverse array of students to mingle with. For me, the whole "college thing" seemed like a little too much for me straight out of high school, but PVCC made me feel right at home because of the endless support from faculty and peers. I would recommend this school to any, and every body!
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.
Some things I liked about Paradise Valley Community College was that the classes were small so it was easy to get more help from the teachers. Also, The campus was not too big so classes were easy to find. However, things that need to change first would be the training of advisors. Every semester I would go to see an advisor and they would always tell me the wrong classes to sign up for and even ones that I did not need. I always felt like they were just trying to have me stay longer and pay more money. Also, the majority of the science department was not good at teaching at all and could not get their point across. Many times students have gotten up and left class and decided it would be easier just to teach themselves the course instead of the teacher teaching them.
