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!

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.
