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.
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.
