Peru State College Reviews

I have had class sizes that are as big as 20 to 30 students to a professor and then classes as small as 7 or 8 students to a professor, but the class size makes giving presentations a lot easier. Classes always have a lot of substance and therefore they have great quality to each student's academic program. Students are responsible for choosing and organizing their four-year plan for their academic program and they can choose to take their classes online, hybrid, or face-to-face but they must be aware of the class rotation as well as financial aid.
Campus Security is always willing to give students rides and tips on how to stay safe around campus. I personally do not walk alone at night, but during the day I do, and I always try to use the buddy system when I can!
I love Peru! My only regrets that I have (if any) are transferring from Metro Community College and then coming to Peru as a junior, but I understand that college is always going to be something expensive that costs a sufficient amount of money.
