    Campus Safety

    I've never felt unsafe on this campus. The campus police are very friendly and accessible, and they patrol frequently.

    Clubs and Activities

    Panola has tons of different clubs, from an outdoor club to an anime club to religious clubs. Their sports teams are also nice.

    Food and Dining

    Panola has decent food. They offer a variety of things and the main cafeteria is buffet-style and very affordable. It never gets boring and there's options for every diet. There is also a small cafe and a grill on the campus too.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus, but Panola College does have dorms, which seems unusual for a community college. From the few times I've visited friends of mine who live in dorms, they appear to be nice and pretty affordable (and of course, less than a fourth of a mile from any class!)

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the courses can be difficult, and I wouldn't recommend taking one of the math or science classes online unless you have a good background in that subject or want a good challenge. The professors are understanding though, and will usually work with you to help you get the grade you need. I believe the classes on campus are the best choice, as they allow you the most room to grow and develop a better relationship with other students to help study and prepare.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to ask questions and ask for help while applying! The staff in the financial aid office and the student success center are so very helpful and will work with you through any challenges you may have with paperwork and securing the funds you need. Also, do not neglect the library. It is a wonderful place to study and the other students there can serve as a great resource.

    This college is an excellent institution, and the faculty and staff have been very helpful with enabling me to reach my goals. The class sizes are small and the professors are very attentive and give as much one on one time outside of the classroom as you need. Going to school here truly makes you feel like part of a family, because they do their best to include students in activities and ensure they succeed.

    What to do for fun

    Well Carthage is a small town so sometimes there will be little parties in the freedom hall or the rodeo hall. But Stephen F. Austin is like 30 or 45 minutes away. Shreveport is 30 minutes away, Marshall is 15 to 20 minutes away, Long-view is 45 minutes away, and Tyler is an hour away. There would be parties going on in these cities and my teammates and I would go and have fun and live our college lives.

    Food and Dining

    Nothing is like a home cooked meal. So the Cafeteria food is reasonable. If you are hungry I promise you will eat the food. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner is not horrible. It is pretty good. I Just got home sick a couple of times but I believe that will happen to anyone.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are pretty nice but the apartments are so much better.

    Academic Rigor

    It is really good

    Tips for prospective students

    Have fun but study on your assignments. Don't get lazy and blow off what you need to learn. I promise the laziness will catch up with you.

    In three sentences

    Panola College is in a nice and wonderful environment. The classes are a good size where you can interact with the teacher to learn more and get help on your assignments. The people who are from that area are easy to get along with.

    Panola College is the perfect school for anyone wanting to advance their career. You have a more personal relationship with the staff. Also smaller classes allowing the ability to get more help form the professors.
