Professors are PCC are great. They are friendly, helpful, caring, and intelligent. Students are very approachable as well. Resources are great, though I believe we do need more counselors. The wait is always ridiculous! There are many programs that help with transferring or graduating. The environment is friendly, and there are great restaurants and stores near campus.
Review Your College
I love PCC! The grounds are beautiful and the professors are top notch. I think it's amazing for the student who desires extended learning and knowledge for self improvement. I am not fully convinced, however, that we are being prepped for the challenges or a four year university and the ability to compete on a global scene.
Still, is education really about competition or collaboration? Time will tell and the mix of viewpoints encourages us to decide that for ourselves. All in all, golden.
The flexibility of classes at Pasadena City College is great! They offer so many different times to work around our busy schedules. They also offer classes at other campus' in the area, so that transportation time can be cut in half for students. The only hassle I had was trying to drop a field studies class that hadn't started yet with a refund. It was a 4 day field trip that was scheduled to be in mid-April, and when I tried to drop it in March, they wouldn't let me because I was supposed to drop it by the regular class drop deadline date which was in January.
