Overall Rating

Pasadena City College has a great environment for students to enhance their abilities in their knowledge. What I like the most of PCC is the faculty staff that helps the students become better learners. My experience with the professors I've had has been a pleasure. In the writing center of the English department I have received great help from staff that has made me feel comfortable asking them for help and advice on how to write well written essays for my english classes. Overall, there is nothing bad to say about Pasadena City College. The college provides the students with advanced technology that is a perfect for students to take advantage of and of course great people that care for the learners.

Overall Rating

The campus is beautiful and calming. Some of the buildings may be a bit older, but many have been or are being renovated. The library is a great place to study, whether it is by yourself or with friends. One of my favorite things about the library is that you are allowed to have food and drinks, which many school libraries don't allow. Prospective students: If you are looking for a community college to get your AA, or to get a good education and the credits needed to transfer to a four year university give PCC a look, especially if you are close by.
