100% of students
I like that there are coaches and counselors that are very determined to help you transfer or graduate. I also like the diversity of the school, and the amount of clubs they offer. I feel the Pasadena City College Precious students to be who they are and makes it a safe place for anyone.
Because of Covid, there are many situations surrounding colleges or schools in general. Since Covid has been around, it’s been hard to communicate with certain offices.
I like that different counselors for different subjects are readily available to help answer your questions. I like how they offer in-person, hybrid, online, and asynchronous classes in order to provide opportunities to every person.
I honestly do not actively dislike anything about PCC.
I enjoyed the experience as a whole, but would not recommend attending for a film or media major.
The film courses are not UC transferable
I appreciated a lot of my professors. A lot of them were teaching at other renowned universities and you would be able to take their classes for free at PCC. The location is also very nice. I could always reach out to different counselors and they made sure to help me with my goal of transferring to a four-year university.
It was not that easy to have a social life while here. Especially because a lot of my classes were online. It is obviously going to be very different from a college where you are staying in dorms. Essentially there is not much student life. Counselors were also sometimes hard to get in contact with depending on the time of year.
This is a place where the professors care, make time for students to meet during office hours, and proactively encourage students to take advantage of campus services. This is a very inclusive campus - with instructors who are consistently supportive of cultural and individual differences. As an adult in their 40s, who also happens to have ADHD and other neurodivergence challenges, it was never a problem for me in any of the classes I enrolled in.
Check your professors before you enroll! Go to ratemyprofessor.com and make sure you understand your professor's teaching style and what will be expected of you - as well as how other students have rated your professor. There are amazing instructors at PCC but like any campus, there are a few who might not be the best fit for you - so checking beforehand is the best way to prevent having a negative experience in class - or worse, having a bad grade that ends up in your transcript.
It was honestly a nice experience and the teachers/ counselors were very helpful.
Don't have anything bad to say.
