Pasadena City College Reviews
Pasadena City College is amazing. Not only does it ensure in providing the best quality education but also makes sure disadvantaged students have plenty of opportunities to succeed in class despite personal or financial issues. The campus is diverse and every month, there are several events hosted by either the students or the staff. These events are not only entertaining but very educational. Most importantly, Pasadena City College urges students to use the resources they provide in terms of transferring to other colleges or excelling in courses. I could not have chosen a better community college to study in!
I liked how many opportunities and help we had along the way. For example, we have programs like pathways that help you get free tutoring, one on one meetings with a coach for your intended major, and priority registration. I also loved how willing the professors are to help you succeed and transfer. What I didn't like as much, was the lack of communication to some extent. Most counselors would all say different things. For example, one counselor would tell me i need to take a specific class, and then another would tell me i dont need it, which could get confusing. Overall, great community college!
One of the BEST community colleges in the State! After spending three wonderful years here, I will finally be transferring to UCLA this upcoming Fall! Everything is very well thought out and planned here - the website/portal is really clear and user friendly, counseling is quite organized and useful, and professors are very passionate about teaching their subjects.
