Amazing and diverse community college that is constantly expanding areas of study! The volume of curriculum allows a student to carry a number of classes each quarter, and assistance from staff and professors is amazing. The college works hard to promote the students to take multiple fields of study, and earn several degrees and certificates through the course of their education. The library is amazing with knowledgeable staff that can find or get anything to assist you in your academic research studies. The digital lab allows you to create without stress, and staff that has a full knowledge of available software and tools. Student life is very supported and highly diverse in international studies ranging from other languages to cultural activities. The stem staff is there to help with organizing and cleaning up your computer issues and assisting with math and sciences homework as well as a full range of tutoring services available to all students for free.

I love my school for so many reasons. I would say the top three things about Pierce that make it an amazing school to attend is first and foremost the teachers! Every professor I have had so far has genuinely cared about me as a student. Many of my professors have gone above and beyond to make sure I completely understand the curriculum so I can pass with flying colors. I would not be an A student without the help from my teachers, as well as my peers. The students at Pierce have all been super nice and easy to get along with. It's very easy to make friends at this school . Last but not least, the activities. Student life puts on events throughout the year. A lot of them are so much fun and there's always free food and drink. Can you say "baked potato bar" !? Yes please ! Overall, I am proud to be a student at Pierce College.
Students didn't participate in class discussions, teachers were either crazy dedicated or were too laid back. A lot of teachers gave busy work or excessive work that didn't seem to benefit the student or the class. It was hard to make friends because people didn't talk outside of the class. The tutors were nice, but it was always crowded and asking for help was hard since they didn't have enough staff. It was a nice campus I just only really liked Professor Simpson he was the only one who seemed to care and be passionate about his classes and students without overwhelming us and he was very reasonable and thought of the students best interest. He even would stand for the students against colleagues that were being unfair, especially the Dean. The Advisor Adrianna was a doll! She was so approachable, kind, and always made sure I was informed. Otherwise, the staff was hard to talk to and some were even passive aggressive for no apparent reason.
