Online learning with PPCC, especially during the COVID Pandemic, was about the same as my previous experiences with online learning before the pandemic. Tools and software may have changed but the fundamental process was the same. The school utilizes ZOOM or some other form of virtual meeting platform, instructors provide students with the logins and technical issues were pretty infrequent. The online learning is doable but at least to me, it still doesn’t compare to the same experience as face to face interactions.

PPCC is a good school for high school students seeking dual enrollment credits, adults going back to school to work for a degree, or your high school graduate trying to figure out what career/degree they hope to have or any student trying to save money. I've enjoyed my time here for sure. The facility has been great and nothing but kind for me, even though I'm still in high school and attending a 4 year university next year. I would recommend trying to get classes at the Rampart campus (it's newer with overall nicer facilities) if possible. There also isn't a whole lot of campus related activities (there are a few throughout the year, but student life really isn't a thing at PPCC). Overall, it's a great community/junior college!
I have had a limited experience at PPCC, but what I have experienced has been great! I love that I have the opportunity to study anywhere on campus and access to any tutoring I need in the Learning Center. The atmosphere is also very endearing and happy.
