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!

While at PPCC, I experienced issues that left me confused & feeling helpless, many of which were met with faculty responses like, "I have no idea what happened," or, "[t]his shouldn't have been possible." Problems included Financial Aid mix-ups resulting in owed money by me to the institution (when initially the institution had owed me money) & FASFA errors. The staff is not knowledgeable & provided misleading information about its own graduation commencement ceremony, as well as losing & postponing my initial graduation application despite following up several times. The advisors do not provide adequate attention during appointments, & on several occasions failed to inform me of issues with degree planning that would prolong my graduation date despite talking with them to build my plan. Also in my first year of school at PPCC someone hit my car in the overflow lot while I was in class and there are no cameras, or adequate security, to make dealing with this kind of issue possible.
Instructors are the best part, several locations and a diverse student population. Does have room for improvement in staffing and enrollment services. Students have access to free tutoring, parking and gym access. We also have a snack bar and child care services on site. Online courses might be better fitted for those with a tight schedule, most curriculum is online interactive anyways. I heard it costs a little more to attend online but could be worth it if scheduling doesn't match,I will be taking advantage of the mixed courses when my work schedule ramps up. Free resources and amenities are available for online students as well.
