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.
Review Pearl River Community College
I have to say, this is an amazing college! The people are so nice, the staff is easy to work with, IT (the people who work with technology) helps immediately with any issues. The campus is very safe! If you are a female, like me, you will especially feel very secure. There is campus police in the middle of 'river village', which is the female dorm buildings. They are extremely helpful. Overall experience has been amazing thus far.
I loved my time there, the teachers and the students. The professors there actually care about the students and take the time to talk, they convey their lessons very well and have a good schedule if you need to catch them in office. The gym offers special classes you can join or leave as you will. There isn't a party scene much, but it lends itself well to small groups of friends or study groups.
