Pellissippi State Community College is overall a great school. This year makes my second semester of college, as a freshman. The student life is my favorite thing about the school. Usually every morning, they will have something different in the front entrance of the school. Everything from different colleges telling about their school, personal life advice givers, financial help, etc. They also have a "spirit week" kind of thing. Wear your school shirt, have pictures taken and enjoy some free popcorn. The academics are better than most people would think. The teachers are always their when you need them, and the office staff is wonderful and kind. So far, i have enjoyed my journey at Pellissippi State!

Initially concerned with attending a community college. However, had the best time at Pellissippi State (Hardin Valley Campus). Very challenging, but the professors definitely care about their students. Everyone is super friendly!
After being out of college for a decade, I felt insecure and overwhelmed with being a full-time student and a single mother. I thought going back to school might be a challenge and that I wouldn't be able to do so, but the professors and staff at Pellissippi State reassured me that I will be alright. Every week they provided services and information that can be beneficial to struggling student-parents like myself. The food pantry, free finance classes, and flexibility with academic scheduling are just a few examples of what type help I've received. I also had too many attempted credit hours to be eligible for federal aid. I found out halfway through the semester my aid was taken and had to pay college classes out of pocket. I talked with my school's finical aid adviser and received a last dollar scholarship instantly. As a single parent reliability and flexibility is very important. The staff at Pellissippi has always been there for me, working with me, and reassuring me I can do it.
