Porterville College Reviews
Before attending Porterville College, I was a little apprehensive about going to a community college; I wanted to experience living away from home and walking around a huge campus. When I arrived in my class, however, I was pleasantly surprised! The professors actually took the time to learn everyone's names and get to know each student individually. They formed relationships with their students and were very accommodating and understanding. Now, I never want to leave.
It is very eady to naviagate. I can easily reach my teachers and classmates. Using the calendar helps me keep my assignments in on time and receive a high grade. It also checks off the assignments as I submit them. This is very helpful and useful. The materials are related to the coursed and the work is evenly distributed through each course. The books and assignments are easy to read, learn and self navigate. When I have questions or concerns I can easily reach my teacher or classmates for help. The discussions are very helpful for me to really relate to my classmates since it is all on line. Being able to interact with my peers even though technology is very neat. Also it helps my networking with my peers. Being able to relate and communicate through discussions is very important since we are not in a class room. It also helps me learn more to be more open minded about what other's learn and how they are comprending the material. I like the teachers and the course and material.
Porterville College is a great place to start before heading to a university. It allowed me to get my general education courses out of the way and at a much lower tuition rate than what I would have otherwise. Most of the professors I had were phenomenal and wanted to see their students succeed. Going to Porterville College before starting at a university gave me the chance to grow up, gain some experience, and save a little money. It was the smartest decision I made after leaving high school.
