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 Paradise Valley Community 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!
PVCC is home to amazing staff, amazing opportunities, and numerous ways to get connected in the community. Ive had the privilege of getting involved with their leadership programs as well as the Diversity program, and it really helped me to get involved on campus as well as helped me to realize what I wanted to do with my life. There staff really invests in helping you to succeed in what ever path you might be leaning towards.
