My experience at Pearl River Community College was overall wonderful. I attended PRCC and obtained my Licensed Practical Nurse degree and then furthered my education with starting some classes for my Registered Nurse degree. I attended the Hattiesburg campus and was satisfied with my professors, classes and atmosphere. I would recommend this college to other students and I am thankful for all I learned there as I further my education at an university.
Pearl River has been very helpful to me. I'm going back to college after 30 years and so many things are different. The faculty, staff, and professors are always ready to show me how to get things done on the computer. Because of their instruction and resourcefulness I have a 3.88 GPA and have made the Dean's List my first semester. I'm looking forward to my next and feel with my heavenly Father's help and the help from the college I will be able to do even better.
