As a local community college, Porterville College was an outstanding school. All of the professors were very nice and knowledgeable in their respective subjects. I never felt like I was struggling there because there were so many resources available to me. If the teachers weren't available a the time, then there were a large amount of tutors in the Learning Center available that you could go visit. The school was relatively small, so it was a relaxing environment were everyone knew each other and would help each other out. The food there was nice, though some of the items were a little pricey at times. I never took part in the athletics there, but I have heard good things from some people that did participate in sports. The campus was safe and was in a remote location away from any trouble. Overall, the school was great and was worth the money I spent on it.

Porterville College is a great choice to make for those who are just graduating high school. They will get you prepared for your next step in life and the Cafeteria food is bomb! I encourage many to go out and support our athletes, a lot of talent from around the central valley. The only downside I cam say is that they don't have dorms, it'd be lit if they did.
My experience at Porterville College is great. Clubs and extracurricular activities that I have participated in, propose community service and visiting 4 year universities. This community college is helpful and supportive with students who are in need of tutoring, finding local jobs in town and offering guidance on discovering your degree and career choice. A change I would like to see at the college is if the school extended the deadline for payment on enrollment fees. This new adjustment, I believe would help many students.
