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!

Campus isn't so big that i could get lost. Can find way around easily. School doesn't look like or feel like a community college. Still have the same concerns about parking as probably other schools, but that is only during the early morning. With the campus being next to a golf course and among homes, it's still very peaceful and quiet there. My adviser really took an interest in the courses that i would be taking. She made sure that I had the right amount ensure that I had the chance to succeed and not be overwhelmed.
I really loved Paradise Valley Community College just because as a first generation student I didn't know what to do or where to start and when I went to visit the campus and speak with an advisor they helped me apply step by step and they didn't make it seem like every question I asked was stupid. They made me feel like I belonged there and they were such a big help til today!
