Pima Community College Reviews
Personally, Pima has treated me excellent, hence the four stars I am rating it! I would give it five stars, but to me, that means perfection and I could not say any school is perfect, because nothing is lol. Pima has great staff that are always on top of things. Pima, unlike a lot of community colleges, always have events going on and try to include their students in everything. You will always find new (up to date) bulletin boards full of flyers with things to do. Though some classes are challenging, teachers at PCC are very caring and very helpful when it comes to their students. They take time to meet with their students (during office hours) and will go over things more than once if you need it. The campus is not overwhelmingly big nor small. It is the perfect size, and perfect place to build community. I have accomplished many things these past three semesters and am glad to be a part of PCC!
I enjoy the atmosphere of Pima Community College. The nursing program is challenging in so many ways and everyone I have come into contact with has only pushed me to do my best. Before I started, a mentor for the program told a group of us, "if you're failing, you've waited to long to get help." All of the instructors are nurses themselves and they want to see everyone in the program succeed. The only default I have come into contact with at PCC is the financial aid department. They denied my FAFSA and when I met with 3 separate people, not one of them could tell me why I was being denied FAFSA. That part has been extremely frustrating. Although, I would recommend the nursing program to anyone!
The wide variety of classes one can attend, coupled with guidance in the form of free tutoring and advising for all departments, makes this a fantastic institute! I would urge any Tucson residents to start college off here and learn the ropes of college before starting any big University. Tuition at PCC is delightfully affordable.
