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.
Review Pierce College at Fort Steilacoom
Pierce College at Fort Steilecoom is an amazing option for people who want and need to save a little money before heading to an expensive 4-year university. There are so many options for different types of classes, taught by great professors. The campus is beautiful, and the buildings feature state-of-the-art technology, and eco-friendly materials.
Pierce has been great! The advisors really work with you to get you to the classes you need and the instructors take their time with the students to make sure they're understanding the materials of the course.
