All of my classes were at the Pima community college West campus. I had a very safe and positive experience while I earned my Associates degree in Archaeology. The classes are usually 20 to 40 students that makes it a more pleasant learning experience. They had really awesome Tutor center that could help you with any class or homework assignments your stuck on. The school also has many different student resources for clubs, disabled students, financial aid, support departments and an amazing advising center for transferring to a University. They also have a organized and well maintained campus that was kept safe by the on-campus police.
Review Pima Community College
Pima was one of the best and efficient schools that I have ever attended. I was not fully prepared to tackle the university so I began my college journey at Pima. The teachers there are extremely helpful. The classes are also small, which provides students with more one on one attention compared to the taking general eds at the University. The tuition is also affordable especially if one gets FAFSA, which most people do. All in all, Pima offers students at cheaper and more efficient means to obtain their associates or to transfer. The credits at Pima for general eds are the same at the University of Arizona, for example.
Since I have not chose a definite major yet I am mostly working through general education and a few courses that interest me and I feel could be helpful to my future. I am leaning towards a Computer Science degree or something in business so I have taken a couple of courses that will prepare me for majors in those areas. All those major specific classes tend to be my favorite! The teachers have all been very knowledgeable about the subject they are teaching, as they should be but anyone who has gone to school will know that's not always the case. I would personally say that the workload in these courses is a little bit heavier than a general education class just because its more subject specific and something that most people are not as familiar with but it isn't too overwhelming or impossible to succeed.
