Pierpont Community & Technical College Reviews

I am currently enrolled in the Health Information Technology Program at this college. Throughout my journey of schooling here I have always had a positive outlook on this college and the wonderful staff that is provided here. With only one more semester remaining before i graduate I am noticing the stress and anxiety arise. However, my professors all are very understanding and try to help ease my mind, relax, and succeed. I have had a few struggles throughout the 2 years I am been going to this school. However, if anyone employed at this college was certified to help with any of the problems they were always there for the students even if it was to give them personal advice. Even with all the help from this technical college and their staff students still tend to struggle financially and Pierpont has opened my eyes to different ways to earn the money to help pay for my education.

Class sizes were small, so the relationships between professors and students were more personable and dedicated. Professors at Pierpont are normally very understanding when it comes to missing classes and/or deadlines due to unforeseen circumstances. Numerous staff members are willing to help students in any way they can, including spend several weeks' worth of time sitting in meetings, composing emails, and filling out paperwork in order to allow one student the chance to retake one class needed to put toward a degree.
Great classes and major options, lots of student involvement and groups, nice campus life, but unfortunately professors are very hit-and-miss. Had some good ones who I respected, had lots of bad ones who never graded work when they say (if at all until you demand it) and don't answer questions. The educators make an otherwise good experience soured.
