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!
Pellissippi State is very accessible to students of all age groups and capabilities, thanks to their recent initiatives to financially assist newly graduated high school students, and adult learners. They are also one of only two colleges in the entire country - the other being in New York - to offer the government funded Universal Pathways to Employment Project (UPEP), which assists disabled students in their path to both earning an Associates, and entering the workforce.

If there's anything I'd change about Pellissippi, it would be the acquisition of more specialized professors, as many professors at PSTCC teach multiple subjects, some of which they are not as skilled in.

Regardless, the faculty and staff at the college are altogether wonderful, and it's a great experience for any student of any age.
