I know many preconceptions about community colleges revolve around them not providing the same quality of education as the big universities do, but I'm happy to report that those judgements are sadly incorrect. From learning how to successfully construct a ten page or more research essay to learning how to create a lesson plan for future students in my introduction to education course, I can confidently state that I've learned many new skills, structures, and techniques to further my education, and undoubtedly myself. Because I had the opportunity to work in groups and compose projects together with other students, I...

    This place is awesome, honestly I took some classes here before I got the opportunity to work here. I love the campus, its gorgeous. Once you take some time and get to know some people you come to understand this is wonderful place to be, there are some of the best staff and faculty at this school bar none! You do need to take your time and find your people but this campus can be a life changing experience if you allow it to be so. Of particular note are: Student Life and Leadership (admitting total bias) Honors Service Learning Library Welcome Center Exercise Science Communications Faculty Astronomy English Writing Business Psychology Archeology Geology Geography Anthropology Fine and Performing Arts Fitness Center Biology Math Health Science And I don't even know everyone - like any place you have to find the people that speak to you, but if you allow it to do so, this place can change your life. Its changed mine!

    Paradise Valley Community College is in the center of Phoenix and has an amazing campus with friendly advisors and students. The class sizes are small and the professors are very involved with their students and their work. The experience I've had at PVCC is one smooth ride and to transfer to a four year college will be a breeze!

    It's a nice campus, and once you get enrolled and going its pretty easy to navigate your way around campus. The enrollment services building is annoying, they usually confuse or cause more problems than help.

    Paradise Valley Community College has given me the opportunity to succeed in my academic career at a lower cost and with more support than a University could have offered me straight out of high school. The campus is full of friendly faculty members; all of whom care deeply for the students and strive to help each one succeed. I have really enjoyed my time thus far at PVCC because they are full of inspiration and dedication.

    This is a phenomenal community college to attend because it is a beautiful and rather small campus. The professors are extremely personable and they sincerely do care about how well you do in their class and try everything in their power to help you succeed, because they do not want anything else but for you to succeed. Also, there are numerous ways to get help for classes and free tutoring is available at all times.
