I liked the events that they held. It gave students a break and time to relax. I also loved the friendly faces. There were very nice people here. Plenty of people willing to help, even if they were on their way to class, and you stopped them because you were confused on where to go. I admire the outside area. Nice places to sit, in the sun and in the shade. Great places to relax. The library was very peaceful. You could do your work there and not have to worry about hearing too much noise, because everyone was there for the same reason: to get their work done! I also admire the dual enrollment classes that high school children are able to take before graduating. I, personally, was able to take some of those classes and am very grateful that I had that opportunity. I think it will help out a lot of students in the long run.

Incredible two-year experience that developed my mentality and shaped how I viewed myself in more ways than I can begin to describe! I found a second family in our Phi Theta Kappa Iota Mu Chapter and will never forget the experiences that came with being a part of the group. I would highly recommend for all high school graduates to begin at a community college level as it prepares you for the challenges and obstacles that will naturally come with stepping into a four year university.
I've so much enjoyed my experience at PRCC so far. It's been amazing. The people are nice, the teachers are so helpful. The dorms are wonderful, the food in the cafeteria is delicious. Everyone is welcomed to so many things going on around campus. It's inclusive, helpful, fun and honestly the best experience I've had with college so far. I love it at PRCC!
