Pima Community College Reviews
Pima Community College is affordable, excellent and has a wonderful variety of academic programs. It has several locations around Tucson so it is easily accessed and offers online classes! It supports many people pursuing their education. The professors that I've had so far are all experienced in teaching, and passionate about their study. They teach diligently to make sure all their students pass. The campuses are safe and have security walking foot around the clock. The campuses also have cafeteria's and food for purchase in the bookstores to ensure proper nutrition for their students. The advisors are friendly and always are ready to help with any questions. Pima also offers a early- book purchase program to save expenses, and rents out laptops and has computers for students on campuses. Tutoring is available and available on walk in and is very excellent. It also offers student work programs and job postings. Classes on campus are engaging and parking is easy to find. Overall, 10.
Pima Community College was really helpful for prospective students like myself! It was full of helpful employees, and the professors supported me immensely! I love the smaller atmosphere, and the resources that were provided at a lower rate. For anyone who's unsure of their major/university, I would highly recommend that you should consider going to Pima Community College first! It is a much cheaper investment compared to starting as a freshman in a university, and allows students to gather their bearings with a smaller classroom, and more one-on-one interactions. Pima also offers certificates for students to join the workforce as quickly as possible!
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!
