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!
Review Pikes Peak Community College
I got as far as the CNA program and it was amazing! The clinical experience was enjoyable, I was sad when it ended. Great experienced instructors with mesmerizing stories to prepare you for the nursing field. I would really push anyone looking towards getting their CNA to do it through PPCC.
Pikes peak community college has some good and bad things about it. Some of the good things is all the diverse degrees they offer as well as the many helpful services they have such as learning centers and tutoring in most general subjects. They also have different campuses that you could attend depending on your location in the Springs. What they need to work on is their teachers and lesson plans. So many teachers that I have encountered don't have any enthusiasm in teaching anymore. They are not creative with the way they teach and some seem not to even care about their students or how well they do. All the curriculum's try to fit too much information in, in a little time frame and expect you to learn it with a deep understanding of the material. There are too many exams and not enough homework or class activities. Lectures are the basis of all the teachers lesson plans and most are dry and straight to the point or right out of the book. Also there is not enough parking.
