Pierpont Community & Technical College Reviews

Very well taught curriculum. Instructors are very dedicated to make sure you succeed. I am majoring in Petroleum Technology, and love it. The learning experiences whether hands on, in the field, and lectures are very informative. Each class something new was taught and straight to the point. The overall campus is very well structured. Would highly recommend others to look into Pierpont Community & Technical College to pursue their careers.
Review Pierpont Community & Technical College
Pierpont is a great choice for me. It is a smaller campus that has smaller classroom environments, which I believe reflects in how much one-on-one time you can actually get with your professor. The staff is a bit disorganized, but the majority of them genuinely care. They offer many on-campus events including job fairs, and the services offer to students are very nice for the cheaper rates we are paying. It's a very nice transition from a rural area due to the smaller campus, and the staff have worked with me through everything. The food is very nice as well, although Aladdin food services have been very reluctant to cater to Celiac's Disease. Students who live on-campus are required to purchase a meal plan, however my girlfriend recently got diagnosed with Celiac's Disease. Therefore, she was forced to pay for a meal plan she couldn't use, and that forced us to try and get exempt from the housing contract to get our own apartment so she could actually eat food without getting sick. Other than that though, I have absolutely no complaints.
The courses and instructors seem very robust. Of course there are some professors that don't work as much with students, but you'll get those everywhere you go. Most of them, especially the professors in major-specific programs, seem to genuinely care about the success of the students. As far as the sizes of the classrooms, the largest class is a lecture class of 30 students. I have a class this semester of 8 students, and it really makes class enjoyable as we all get to know each other. There are a lot of different courses offered as well, and they are constantly looking for more things to add to the table.
