Overall my experience at Pierce College has been good. I highly recommend taking U.S. History with Prof. Sheryl Nomelli. She makes a difficult subject easy! Her lectures are very engaging and clear. The homework for the course is easy and very enjoyable. I also recommend taking communication courses with Prof. Robert Loy. We did fun activities in class, and he understands the student body very well. Both Prof. Nomelli and Prof. Loy are also good graders. My favorite class though was Beginning Acting with Prof. Esdras Toussaint. It's an amazing class...in fact it doesn't even feel like a class. We played games, did fun exercises, and I consider everyone from that class a friend. The only complaint I have about Pierce College is that I got a horrible English teacher and eventually I was able to switch classes. The Center for Academic Success is very helpful. That's where students go to get tutoring and I've always had a positive experience with the tutors.

Los Angeles Pierce College is a community college in Woodland Hills, California. It's a very diverse college that has many different majors available and friendly staff! They renovated the campus, it's so beautiful, it looks like you're at a University. They have a Nursing Program, Equestrian, a huge arts building and a really cool Center for the Sciences building. Their library is really spacious and resouceful. They have a large transfer population and a solid TAG program. Overall, it's one of the best colleges to begin your professional career!
I have been at this community college for four years now and I am happy to say that it has been the best years of my life. I did high school and college courses at the same time and it was very flexible for me! Now that I graduated from my high school as a junior, I am now having more time to be a community college student (full-time) for my last year until I transfer with my twin sister! The professors are very generous, flexible but most of all be on time! I mostly took the college course online because I was in high school but overall they are amazing!
