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.

Pasadena City College has done an amazing job with their STEM program which provides many resources for students to succeed. Majority of professors are a tremendous help in their office hours if you had trouble understanding a concept during lecture. Tutors also do well in providing assistance for difficult courses. . Unfortunately in contrast the Physics Department only has one tutor and some professors are not available for office hours. Their department is in major need of change. Overall I've had a positive experience on the campus meeting individuals with similar goals of trying to obtain a career in the field of Healthcare!
I have just finished my first semester of college and I would not have asked for a better experience! I took 14 units during this 16 week semester, and I did not find the work load too hard.
Every professor I had really cared about their students and liked their jobs. They are all very smart, kind, and excited to teach. Because this was my first experience with having college professors, I do not have anyone to compare them to, but I definitely feel as though these were the best professors! Thanks to these amazing professors, I finished strong with a 4.0 GPA!
This school has also helped me save TONS of money because of the PCC Promise, which gives me and many others our first year tuition free! This is another great reason for why everybody should attend this school!
