Pikes Peak Community College is a great school for figuring out what path you'd like to go down. The college shares many of it's professors with Colorado College and University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The two biggest issues is the constant construction projects that the school has at their downtown and centennial locations and then the professors are extremely hit and miss. Otherwise it's a great starting point for students who are uncertain of their career path or looking to save money!

One of the top nursing programs in the country! Tons of support services, including tutors, writing center, math center, and support for those with learning disabilities. The perfect school for adults returning to college.
Being a new student to such a diverise college was outstanding! Everything about PPCC was just wonderful. I was completely lost and the student life center was great when it came to directing me to the right area. Everyone in advising was very helpful and friendly. The professors are to die for at least the ones I've had! I wish all staff could be how PPCC professors are. Very clean environment, great resources, and overall great. They've prepared me for the next step in my life as far as getting one step closer to my degree. Other than the classrooms I've spent a lot of time in the computer lab and the students that work there are very helpful and friendly. If they couldn't help me they were very eager to get someone who could assist me on my matters. I enjoyed them most of all because I've spent many hours in the computer lab. PPCC will forever be a great deal in my life when it comes to my education which is very important to me!
