I have attended PGCC since I was in high school because I was in a dual enrollment program. This school is a really good school for those who want to save money or not sure exactly what they want to major in or whether they want to be in school at all. Community colleges are usually frowned upon, but I think they can be a smart choice. The class sizes are small, so you can really get the most out of the class and the professor. The professors that I have had so far are there to help you and want you to succeed. The atmosphere is welcoming and there are clubs and well as tutoring services you can take advantage of. The also have really great food at the food court! The only downfalls to this school are the advisors/ admissions and financing staff. Some of the advisors don't know what they are talking about, so you really have to be on it when it comes to planning your classes. The admissions staff members that I have encountered were somewhat rude and unwelcoming. Overall, it is a good bang for your buck and I would recommend this school.
Review Prince George's Community College
I feel like Prince George's Community College is whatever you make it to be. Yes its a community college but they have some many great programs that are partnered with other schools like University of Maryland College Park or Towson University. Some professors are not only teaching you out of the textbook but apply it to everyday life skills. There are a lot of student organizations on campus. PG has a diverse culture and background. Any administrator or teacher will help you. They have great advisers that will help you take the right classes in order for you to transfer to the school you really want to go to. One thing I would change really is the transportation to the school. The PG County buses do not run as late as regular metro buses or come as often. Another thing I would change is the surrounding area, it could use more food places because you get tired of eating the same thing at the cafe everyday.
I am an art major and it is amazing! Being in a studio filled with people who share the same passion you do for art is very exciting. You learn a lot from your classmates and the teachers. The class hours are an hour plus, but when you're working on a piece the time flies. There are job opportunities,internships, and scholarships when you network with professors.
