    Was a brilliant idea to begin at a community college! Much lower tuition than the colleges my friends are at, but equally as challenging and educational!

    The tuition is really low and Pierce has a good reputation in the community, which opens doors for its students. There is a wide array of classes you can take. The tuition is comparable to the other local community colleges, but Pierce has a gym (which is $15 for a quarters worth of use) and a lot more programs than the others. The vast majority of classes do transfer and the difficulty towards the end of your degree prepares you for a transfer, while the stair stepping of difficulty helps maintain your GPA while getting prepared for a transfer.

    The drama department is wonderful and was a major part of my pleasant experience at Pierce College. All other classes were informative and were fun to be involved in as well. My two years there were very valuable and I cherish them!
