    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students who have other responsibilities and can not afford to be tied down to one location.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you do not think you have the time for school, forget that thought! You always have time for school, especially if it is online! Online schedules work for you.

    Bang for the buck

    Less expensive than other school, but same education.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am taking my classes online, and I love how flexible my schedules are.

    Am learning a lot

    Great for these types of students

    The type of student that likes live people, not just people that will walk by you and say nothing, but people who will stop and ask you questions and get to know you because you look like a cool person.

    Tips for prospective students

    notes,notes,notes,study,study,study, and that's about it. if you take good notes and study them just 20 minutes a day you will be a successful student.

    Bang for the buck

    The classes here are all very good, when I was a Prospective student i took tours threw the classes, and all of them seemed like fun, so you will definitely get your bang for the buck.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love it at school, I never thought just walking the campus would be fun, there are so many different groups just around the campus, some dance, some sing, some even just talk to passing people to get to know someone new, I like this school a lot.

    Am learning a lot

    The classes here are very informational depending on what kind of student you are, you may have to switch a teacher or two, because I'll admit some of these teachers don't know how to connect with younger people. But the information they give is still very useful.

    Anyone who wants to go to school online, anyone who is busy with work or kids, people is irregular sleep schedules (you can post your homework any time as long as it is in before 11pm Arizona time), people who can only handle a few classes at a time.

    Tips for prospective students

    The work may seem easy at first, but don't be fooled. This college is just like any other and it takes hard work to get through it; not that it's overly difficult either. Make sure you set aside time each day to do your work and check your assignment calender often.

    Bang for the buck

    In my search for online schools, I actually found this to be an affordable option. My student loans pay my whole way so far and I think it will be worth the money.

    Am enjoying being here

    I take courses online so there isn't a whole lot to enjoy about being here. The teachers and academic counselors are helpful, but that's really all I can say about it.

    Am learning a lot

    I've only taken 4 classes so far so most of them are general credits. Therefore, I haven't learned a whole lot. I hope to learn more as I get into more advanced classes.

    Campus Safety

    the safety at uop is great. armed officers and you need a school id. no one can't just walk on campus. they have a zero understanding for the crazy stuff.

    Great for these types of students

    this great for people who are parents and no time for regular school. if your returning after so many years out of school. all is good even you have a busy lifestyle.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    classes at uop are smaller then regular college class. they offer online and on campus class.

    Academic Rigor

    the academic team at uop is outstanding; they call you every week to see if your get things done or need help with anything. they offer workshops to help you with the areas your having problems in. the resource room is available to us six days a week.

    Tips for prospective students

    uop is a great school and is there with you every step of the way. the online learning system is basic; you can't get lost. uop is a school that fits in your busy lifestyle and trust me you will feel at home.

    Campus Safety

    I believe the campus security to be on guard and are always looking out and I would have to say phoenix campus is pretty safe.

    Greek Life

    Academic Excellence. Leadership Development. Community Service. Life-long Friendships. There are many ways to be Greek at UConn! Enrolled undergraduate women and men interested in getting involved should look at the sororities and fraternities, respectively. Click below to find out more about UConn Greek life!

    Clubs and Activities

    Many of campus clubs and stores within walking distance and other shops of interest.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are looking for a great faculty, Phoenix staff in my opinion has been great. and I believe to be a higher education than many other University's

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Well the phoenix campus has some great places to see.. however I am taking classes on-line. I did walk the campus once and it was huge

    Bang for the buck

    Well I find that the computer programs the university of phoenix has to offer and at a great price for all students.. a bang for the buck

    What to do for fun

    I love to fish and hunt and am always spending time in the outdoors. I love to camp and just enjoy the outdoors and the wild animals, not to mention the smell of the outdoors.

    Food and Dining

    Well I am doing my courses on-line although i have ate at the cafeteria and the food was great and they serve great food. rating is a 3

    Dorm Life

    Well I have heard that the dorm life for some is good however the dorm life for me would be difficult as i have 5 kids and we wouldn't all fit..lol

    Academic Rigor

    Academic Rigor well i am not sure what this is asking for sure however I believe academic rigor is high at a high standard in this college. The community college is a distinctly American contribution to higher education. Nowhere else in the world can one find such commitment to access to higher education.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a great staff and counselors willing to advance and help you better your education, then look no further phoenix is the college.

    In three sentences

    Phoenix college is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a high standard education. I recommend this school .. I love it

    What to do for fun

    Phoenix college athletics, fitness and student life and leadership programs offer lots for students to do. Clubs include the LGBTQ rainbow spectrum, Moca, Phoenix college judo and jujutsu and much more.

    Food and Dining

    Food is getting better all the time, considering the addition of the Starbucks in the SU building. Chalk this one up to renovation and construction as far as on campus food goes. Off campus however has some of Arizonas best niche and fine dining experiences! The Vegan favorite Green is right down the road.

    Dorm Life

    The housing situation is much like other community colleges. some housing nearby and a sprawl of cheap apartments to supplement. Phoenix college is close to the historic (Willo, Encanto, and Midtown) Areas, as well as the Arts district and downtown phoenix.

    Academic Rigor

    Phoenix is the Flagship of the maricopa county college system, the largest community college system in the United states! There are great classes all over the valley and lots of opportunity to get involved. Teachers are very knowledgeable and get involved with student activities and clubs.

    Tips for prospective students

    stay away from the blackboard related classes, or adjunct mathematics teachers that use online tools such as my math lab as a crutch and shield from grading or god forbid teaching.

    In three sentences

    I love the clubs, the professors, and great location in the middle of town. The renovations are kind of annoying but the outcome is amazing! Stay away from online courses, but other then that, Get involved! Make this Your School!

    Great for these types of students

    I've seen many different kinds of students attend PC and they all tend to fit in one way or another.

    Bang for the buck

    They have a variety of classes you can take, but the Honor's Program didn't offer many classes that I hadn't already taken that would go towards my degree. However, the Honor's Program did allow me to do a petition and I still received my honor's credits. And, of course, it's a lot cheaper going to PC than it is a university to get your associates!

    Am enjoying being here

    The enviornment allows you to be relaxed and have a good time, yet you can get serious about your work at the same time if you want. Most people tend to be easy going here and friendly. In the math courses that I'm taking, I've become good friends with some of my fellow students and people in class is always so willing to help you out if you can't figure out how to solve a problem or if you're not understanding a concept. It's amazing how everyone's so willing to help eachother out!

    Am learning a lot

    I'm currently taking some of the highest levels offered and this school has the perfect enviornment for it! The classes have about 15-35 students per class and the teachers make themselves easily available during or after school. I feel the professors make sure you understand what's being taught and allow opportunities during class to ask questions if you're not sure. These professors really know how to teach!

    I would only recommend this school for people who are interested in achieving a degree and have no problem not thinking only repeating what the teacher says.

    I guess that classes were appropriately priced for the information they were providing during courses.

    Did enjoy being here

    It is difficult to enjoy a college when you are constantly struggling with the teachers regarding their reasons for not following the grading rubic they designed.

    Did learn a lot

    I found the teachers were more interested in reading their opinions placed in your words.

    Tips for prospective students

    Arrive early if you want a parking space. Even though there are 2 parking lots, two-story parking lot, and parking meters, space is limited. You may find yourself driving in circles for 15 minutes at a time or be forced to park quite a walk away from classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Although tuition was raised last year, it's still quite affordable to take prerequisites here than any university. Financial aid may also provide a book advance or possible rent out textbooks while the school can make out payment plans.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is vivid and lively with people always roaming and hanging out around campus. There are many nearby restaurants from all types of food and the Metro Light Rail is also just a 10-15 minute walk away. Construction has been going on in order to make a brand new Student Union with a Starbucks cafe and another unannounced building too.

    recently, the school constructed a student union designed for students to spend free time in relaxing. at the student union, students can also meet with other students in between classes to catch up or do group assignments. there is also a bear's den inside for students to buy coffee to sip while catching up with friends.

    Food and Dining

    Dorm Life

    i cannot judge dorm life since i still live at home with my family while attending phoenix college.

    Academic Rigor

    for the most part, all the classes are quite good at assuring that the course content is understood well by the student by the end of the semester.

    Tips for prospective students

    starting out at a new school may seem a little daunting at first, but there's no need to stress about not finding your way around campus. not only are there maps available, but there are also many approachable teachers and students around campus willing to help a new student find their way around campus. also, if one finds themselves struggling to solve a problem or edit an essay, there are also available tutors ready to help one succeed in class and school.

    Campus Safety

    There is constant patrolling in the student parking lots from security and there are cameras in the parking lot as well as around campus that are always on. Throughout the day, security guards will walk around campus which gives student's to feel safe when going to class or leaving to go home at in the darkest hours of night.

    What to do for fun

    The school provided countless activities to do for fun. In the Student Union, there is a game room for those who want to play some video games or a quick game of pool.

    Food and Dining

    At the moment, the cafeteria is being remodeled so there is a substitute cafeteria in the meantime. From tiny snacks, to Papa John's, it provides just enough food for those who are extremely hungry or for those who just need a quick energy boost. There is a lot of outside tables and benches to eat and enjoy the coming summer weather as well.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at Phoenix College.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the area of study you are going into, mostly all majors will have a tendency to have a rigor, or harshness to it. By doing the work no matter how hard it is, you are proving not only to the professor but yourself that anything is possible. Again, it all depends on the source of study you are going into because not all majors share the same severity.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always be involved in a group or activity that can benefit the career you wish to pursue. When being involved, not only will that motivate you to succeed, but you also have to opportunity to broaden your connections with the friends you make.

    In three sentences

    The Theater Program that Phoenix College offers has given me many opportunities to improve my acting abilities. Because it is a community college, there is a small number of students in class which makes it easier to have one-on-one time with your professors. From class to class, or library to the student union, everything is closer in proximity which makes it easier to get where you need to go rather having to walk twenty minutes to get to class or the sort.

    Campus Safety

    There is a security team as well as some on campus police officers that keep the campus relatively safe. There is rarely a fight on campus, but when there is they are quick to arrive on the scene, especially with the help of many cameras, scattered around campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Student clubs and organizations are an important part of the collegiate experience for all students attending Phoenix College. Many opportunites are available for involvement. All clubs are open to any enrolled Phoenix College student. Honor societies and student organizations may have additional requirements for membership. There are tons of clubs offered at Phoenix College ranging from robotics to a veteran's club.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a working student this place is perfect for you, in fact almost any community college will be a great fit for you. If you like the a small student-teacher ratio and would like more personal attachment with your professors this school will also be a good fit.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to a four year university you will be saving a ton of money by attending any community college for 2 years, and then transferring. With tuition prices the way they are, this is probably one of the best routes to go if you were not a full ride candidate to a university. Also if you work most professors are understanding and sometimes flexible with their assignments.

    What to do for fun

    They just built a new student center with video games and comfortable couches to relax with friends before the next class begins. It is a good place to meet people and have fun with friends. There is also the gym on campus if you like working out.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay, the cafeteria is a small room with several tables and vending machines. Most people just go to class and back to work though, so this is not really a major concern.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, but there are apartments a couple blocks from the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Honestly most classes are extremely easy and don't require much time for studying. I guess the saying you get what you pay for sheds some light here, the classes are only as hard as you make it in a community college. Though there are some instructors who are a bit more challenging and are trying to change things at PC.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get familiarized with a website called blackboard, which many classes utilize as a way to assign homework online instead of handouts. Also talk to an adviser about the MAP program which is a transition program from community college to ASU, and saves you a lot of money in the long run. Also, buy your books on amazon instead of wasting money on overpriced books in the bookstore.

    In three sentences

    Phoenix College is a decent community college, and is one of the oldest ones in Maricopa. They offer a vast amount of programs ranging from Dental Hygienist to Medical Billing.

    The School is in a great loction right in the middle of the city of phoenix. All of the instructors that I have had have all been really helpfull and very good at teaching their courses. Also the diversity of the student body is a trademark for Phoenix College.

    I really thought this was funny. My daughter was taking college classes as a senior. I started going to a community college her senior year. We ended up taking the same class but at different times (science). I was always being competitive with her, but I realize how we take life for granite as a child or should I say I did. My daughter doesn't though. She started college in high school and continue college. Makes me proud and my daughter is my hero!!

    Bang for the buck

    I am a single mother of 3. I work full-time and go to school part-time. I try and get all my homework done throughout the week to enjoy my kids on the weekend, but sometimes that doesn't always happened. My life in a nut shell.

    What to do for fun

    What do I do for fun? I go to the park, movies (alot), and whatever I can that is not expensive or free. I enjoy my kids smiles and volunteer at my kids school. I enjoy cooking with my mom at her house. I'm basically a family person, so family fun it is for me.

    Food and Dining

    I don't go out to eat much because I can not afford it. Good dining is my home cooking.

    Dorm Life

    I am a single mother of three and have my own house. Although, my daughter lives in the dorm and I see her living and experiencing a life I never did. I tell her I am living her life, especially when I go visit. I act like I am a student because I look so young, staff thinks I am. However, someday I will be a student and graduate at ASU.

    Academic Rigor

    I am a single mother and graduated in 94'. I was afraid to go back to school because I was out of school for so long. I knew I needed to go back to further my career. It was tough in the beginning but I kept going, visiting the library on a regular, and did not give up. My daughter is currently at ASU and I am so proud of her. I can't imagine myself at ASU yet because I am still learning, but I will not give up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Phoenix College is the way to go if you can't afford a University. Classes are cheaper but get the same education. There are many resources available to prep you for the University. Phoenix College can be the beginning of your future, especially if you are indecisive of your major.

    In three sentences

    I have been attending PC for 4 semester now. I love the small setting class rooms and more teacher one on one, especially for a single mother. I will continue with my business degree at PC until I transfer to ASU.

    Security guard is on post at all times. This may not reflect on all campuses through out the US.

    Great for these types of students

    Single mothers/fathers, veterans, full time employees, those returning to college after a long absence.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Classes are five weeks long, it's fairly common for most classmates to go out for a few drinks after completing each class. Giving your self a little reward for hitting small milestones will keep your motivation up.

    Bang for the buck

    I am not able to field this questions well. My GI bill covers my school expenses.

    In the little free time that I have, I work out, go rock climbing, and play sports. I also like the normal music, movies, hang out sites around town.

    Food and Dining

    No food available, but they do provide coffee for no charge.

    Dorm Life

    NA. Do not live in dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    This school offers some of the best knowledge and resources possible. The website offers an unbelievable amount of free information that is simple to navigate. Teachers care about their students. Class sizes are smaller then traditional college and makes for more one-on-one time with students.

    Tips for prospective students

    This type of school if for those who have a busy schedule. If your working full time you can get you schooling in one day a week. With just one course at a time you can keep focused easily. If your busy and have drive this college is for you.

    In three sentences

    I attend a satellite location in Omaha. The five week courses are excellent for a busy schedule. Great team work, and overall structure of classes.

    Campus Safety is very attentive , they are always driving around in their little carts and they post weekly fliers on what has been going on on campus.

    There are a lot of clubs that the Student Life department helps and if you don't find what your looking for then you can make your own!

    Great for these types of students

    Phoenix College is very diverse and I believe there is a right place to any student.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There aren't many big traditions but one tradition is called Bear day when they celebrate the mascot with fun activities.

    What to do for fun

    Phoenix College has a Student Life department which hosts the clubs on campus and many of the events on campus. They are all very fun and the events have many activities and booths for games and food. Their goal is to keep students involved on campus.

    Food and Dining

    Phoenix College just had the whole Hannelly Center remodeled and the cafeteria is all brand new. The prices for the food are not cheap but they are pretty good as far as being tasty.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms so I don't have any experience with that.

    Academic Rigor

    As far as academics go, everything has seen pretty accurate.

    Tips for prospective students

    A great tip for future students is to do everything early. If students do everything early then they don't have to wait in long lines and end up not getting the right classes that are moe convenient for you. I always go see an advisor before enrollment for classes started. That way as soon as registration opened, then i would just login and sign up.

    In three sentences

    My whole experience at Phoenix College has been an enjoyable one. It is a great place to go before a University because it is much smaller and not such a dramatic change. Most of my instructors were very helpful and filled with experience.

    Campus Safety is adequate before dark. If you are a girl I would not recommend being on campus alone at night.

    Greek Life

    There are plenty of Geeky people on this campus. (Dungeon and Dragons people ect.) You don't have to look too hard to find them.

    Clubs and Activities

    I personally didn't try any clubs because I live to far away from this school.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who: 1. Enjoy down town living. 2. A culturally diverse campus. 3. Are broke. 4. Who want to take easy classes that will transfer to a university.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Unsure.

    Bang for the buck

    The current tuition rate is $81.00 a credit hour(Fall 2013) its considerably cheaper than a university. Just remember, you get what you pay for.

    PC has football, theater performances, an art gallery, and other socials on campus. There are also a mixed bag of clubs on campus.

    Food and Dining

    PC has a newly remodeled dining area. The food is great and their culinary students even made a special request item for me due to food allergies.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms for this campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses here are pathetically easy. The only way you would fail is by not showing up. If you are looking for a school to prepare you for university this is not the college for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend the communication courses and foreign language programs. There are many to choose from especially American Sign Language which is currently the only ASL program in the state of Arizona.

    In three sentences

    PC is rough around the edges but a good school for the budget conscious. It has a wide variety of programs for a community college and helpful staff. Unlike a university PC teachers care about your personal journey and success.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria is actually really nice and they have a great variety of food, which is pretty good!

    Academic Rigor

    Phoenix College takes their academic rigor very seriously. Not only do they expect us to learn the material that is taught to us, but also the applied skills and critical thinking about the disciplines being taught. They hold us to high standards by assuring the difficulty of a course through insignificant amounts of content knowledge to be gained or complexity of the materials to be learned.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check out ratemyprofessor.com and read reviews on the teachers before enrolling in classes to make sure you pick the one you feel will be the best for you.

    I am beyond happy with the campus, teachers, and education I have received. The financial aid and advisement office provided so many helpful resources and all the information I needed to figure out the right path for me. Phoenix College has been a phenomenal experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students, make sure that you know where your classes are before your first day. Have fun, and participate in different activities and clubs when you have the time, even if you think it is dumb. Participating will be well worth it, because you never know what there is to offer if you never participate.

    This college is challenging, but it is certainly not impossible to succeed if you actually try.

    You need to realize that this is a college and you are responsible for yourself. They will not treat you as though you are in high school. if you are having an issue- seek out your teacher or advisers and other help that is plenty available on campus. Keep documentation of everything through out the semester in case something happens or if by chance a teacher takes an issue with you ( which has happened on very RARE occasions).

Out of the 20 or so teachers I've learned from only one was having a hard to at the school and class wasn't very enjoyable. But still a very educational atmosphere none the less.
