Prince George's Community is a well rounded school within the state of maryland. It offers a variety of programs and helps students become prepared for the workforce as well as a four year institution. One thing the school needs to improve on are the STEM programs. Engineering at PGCC has been lacking for nearly 16 years and it needs to be funded seriously and quickly. The current professor there, Scott Johnson, is a terrible engineering professor and deserves to be fired from that place. He doesn't do his job as a professor and he doesn't teach students in a proper learning environment. By this issue being there, students who transfer as engineering students to the University of Maryland have a very tough time since many were not prepared for what's to come at the University of Maryland
Review Prince George's Community College
Great school and many opportunities! I am currently enrolled and studying for business management associate degree. They offer many transfer schools after the two years and have a hillamn entrepreneurship program which boost your career with networking.
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.
