Pellissippi State Community College Reviews

My experience at Pellissippi was wonderful. I had gone to the Division Street campus, which I found was very accepting to all and have excellent instructors. The staff all assist the students in both academics and in resources, such as the tutoring center, textbook checkout, work study, and financial aid help. Everyone who works or attends are well educated and provide respect to one another. The only limitations of the Division Street campus would be that there are some classes unavailable that are available at the other campuses, such as art programs or agricultural classes. However, many of the classes that are available have teachers who are working towards or have already earned their doctorates. While there is not a cafeteria at the Division Street campus, there are food trucks daily, as well as vending machines for food and drink and a school store. There are also various events held throughout the school year to boost morale and keep students motivated.

This is My first year attending Pellissippi, and so far my experience has been great. Most of my professors have been very helpful, and the advisors are excellent at setting up the classes you need to be successful. Another thing that I love about Pellissippi is the environment and how friendly everyone is. I love knowing that when I go to class, my professors are willing to work with me and that my classmates are very supportive of me throughout the semester. When ending a semester at Pellissippi, you leave having hundreds of bonds with people you never thought you would meet, which is why I love my school so much and thankful for the oppurtunity I have to be there.
I’m still currently enrolled in Pellissippi starting my junior year, and I have had a great experience since I started my freshman year. The campus environment is nice, the advisors and counselors are extremely helpful, and for the most part I’ve had good professors that are willing to work with me and help me improve. Another perk about this college is that despite its smaller campus atmosphere, it gives students access to lots of academic tools that may not be available at other colleges. For example,
Pellissippi has this awesome place on campus called the Tutoring Center where you can go for assistance on homework, upcoming tests and quizzes, or just help with studying. Every tutor I’ve had has always been very friendly and helpful. Overall, I’ve had a very satisfied experience so far at Pellissippi State, and is a great school for anyone who is looking for an associates degree and a small-scale class environment.
