Pierce College at Puyallup Reviews
I have participated through the Running Start program at Pierce College. I love the challenge that the college classes presents as well as the quarter-based system. It was a major change from high school classes but it has been the best decision I have made for myself. Most of my professors have been decent and the people who work in the administration office are great! One thing I do think needs to change is that there needs to be a "professor review" every quarter because some professors, from the reviews I have seen online from other students, treat their students unfairly.
Pierce College Puyallup is exactly what I've heard from others-- amazing. I have never encountered such a welcoming and helpful staff. The application process is a breeze, I was accepted in just minutes! The location is great-- right next to the mall, plenty of restaurants nearby, and practically right off of the freeway. This campus is also very big on safety. Students can call Campus Safety at any and all hours to get escorted to their cars, and even help with a flat tire. Professors genuinely seem to enjoy their work and wish their students nothing but the best.
My first quarter was amazing aside from one awful professor. Always check your professors before choosing them. Rate my professor is a good place to go. I missed my last two weeks of class because I got into a bad car accident that left me deserted. But with the help from my two other very understanding professors, I was able to make it. Campus is clean and it is easy to find your way around. School activities are great!
