Attending PCCC has been great so far. Every one is helpful. Parking is easy. The book store is down stairs. Getting lunch is convenient. I'm in love ! I should've attended college 15 years ago, better later than never. I'll graduate PCCC before my daughter graduates high school. Team Leading by example- Practice what you preach!
Review Passaic County Community College
Right now, I am about to graduate from PCCC and my major is Early Childhood Education. I have good experiences at PCCC for someone who is still thinking if enrollment to a college is worthed. PCCC offers my different programs and these programs are in different hours which means that anyone who is willing to go to college can find something suitable for their interests and schedules. Besides that all educators are willing to help their students to master their subjects. I believe that I was one of the lucky students who decided to go to college because PCCC changed my life entirely - I started to work in a school as a teacher assistance.
It's a school that is close to home and the people that work there are very helpful and understanding to the struggles of others. They never give up on someone and I have met some of the most interesting and passionate people in a community college. Many people think that community colleges are those who aren't intelligent and it is just watered down. That is not true, I would do it all over again because it is a great experience and it opens your eyes and you realize you don't need to shell out $20,000 a year to get a quality education. This school sees us as scholars not dollar signs.
