    Bang for the buck

    The experiences and the education you'll have will make you grateful for not going to immediately attending a 4 year institution.

    What to do for fun

    Everything happens around the cafeteria the Rennie Forum. Ask club officers about events coming up they always got something wipped up.

    Food and Dining

    The foods in the diner are expensive, that is why most people walk, and drive to the shopping center. Some students bring home cooked meals.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    The academics is managable. Most of the professors are straight forward about what they expect from you out of the class. All you need to do is study what is being coverd in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    One of the beautiful things about the PG Community College is the people you meet coming from different walks of life. Getting involved on campus is priceless,; so connected with College Life Services (CLS), and learn about the variety of events held on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    I recommend it for anyone looking for a higher education.

    Tips for prospective students

    The school does have scholarships; look them up, then apply.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a lot cheaper than a four year school, but the same quality education. It's not about where you go to school; it's about what you choose to do at the school.

    Am enjoying being here

    Overall, I am very happy with the people I met here. Join clubs; it's a fun way to meet potentially new friends while getting involved on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    In all my classes so far, the professors really care. If you do you're work and show that them that you are there to learn, they're are their to help you. They are strict, but very fair and reasonable. Not only will the professors help, the college has resources outside of class to get you any additional help you might need. For example, there is a math lab, writing lab, and tutoring center.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to know your professor in the first week, if not on the first day. It will definitely make your semester more worthwhile. Also, get involved in the community campus because there are a ton of activities and clubs out there for everyone.

    Bang for the buck

    I know that my education isn't getting cheated because most, if not all of my professors teach at surrounding colleges with the SAME material. We just get it for a cheaper price and a one-on-one relationship.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love that my class sizes are small, so therefore I can actually connect and get to know my professor (unlike a lot of my friends who go to universities where they are simply a number, and only talk to the teacher's assistant). The school also offers a lot of useful resources such as a tutoring center, math center, center of advanced technologies building, and a soon to be health education building.

    Am learning a lot

    I have been attending PGCC for the past few years, and I have truly enjoyed my experience. I take regular and honors courses and sometimes (depending on the professor) the regular course are sometimes more involved.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is an annual Seniors Prom that is held on campus where literal seniors come dance, eat, and enjoy themselves. There is also a spot on campus where some student art work is displayed and it must be quiet. It has a few benches and screens that display certain surprising statistics.

    Bang for the buck

    There is a variety of tutoring centers for students who may need extra help in classes. Because there are some teachers with accents, I would encourage prospective students to try their best to research their professors online. Some people's accents are harder to understand than others.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, students hang out in the enormous amount of lounges located on campus, laugh, joke, participate in social events, community projects, etc. There are sports teams and a track at the Largo campus. There are also many different clubs and organizations that students are urged to join.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria food at Prince George's Community College is awesome! They have a special catering service that cooks many different common foods. They serve breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner foods. I remember the cafeteria fixed Thanksgiving Dinner for the Thanksgiving holiday, and students were able to eat at decorated tables secluded from a particularly noisy environment as if they were on dates etc. It was very nice.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in a dorm. However, I have lived with (family members/close people to me) who were taking classes or enrolled at the same college as me. One thing that I can say about the experience is that their is a great amount of support in peers and a great amount of empathy that is usually shared. Another aspect of living with/near others that around the same age group is learning to adapt to the diversity of personalities and learning of the abundance of previously unknown similarities that are very fun to discover.

    Academic Rigor

    The focal point of Prince George's Community College is to get students to Envision Success. When you have a set goal and the goal is truly important to your heart, then you will do what it takes to achieve that goal. Your motivation should be God, yourself, and the desire to succeed in life, make a difference in the world, and help others.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should try their best to focus on their studies and plan to sit in the front of their classes. Prospective students should research their professors online because some may find that certain professors teaching methods may cater to certain learning styles. Prospective students should try their best to maintain a high GPA because they can potentially be awarded money for doing well in school. Prospective students should strive to do all of their homework assignments and submit them on time. They should always make copies of assignments that are to be turned in as well. It is always a great idea to save emails that are sent from professors and to learn to periodically press save while typing papers.

    In three sentences

    Prince George's Community College is a predominantly urban college and is quite diverse. Prince George's Community College is a great school for someone who is just starting college. Prince George's Community College has some extremely knowledgeable professors that know how to teach very well.

    Food and Dining

    The food is tolerable, but it is not healthy. It is better than secondary school food and lower grade levels, but don't be dependent on it. Prefer to play it safe and pack a healthy lunch or go somewhere healthy to eat if you catch a break.

    Dorm Life

    This is a commuter school, so there are no dorms. Community colleges like PG typically are commuter schools anyway.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are good. PG contains many hands-on, dedicated teachers, and difficult courses. Most of these courses can transfer to another college/university, check with an advisor or teacher to make extra sure.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should be prepared for the varied waiting hours in the advising office, they should also ask their teachers and staff questions to be alert and to be in tune with the school. Also know several activities going on around the college so that you can get extra assistance with topics such as transferring, colleges and such.

    In three sentences

    Prince George's Community College is a good school. Most new college students start here other than Montgomery. The low tuition cost and academic classes are worth it.

    I definitely saved a lot of money within a course of 2 years... Definitely!..

    What to do for fun

    Well this year, they have added way more clubs so you can join those in your spare time. If not you can play a sport like basketball, soccer, track cross country and more.

    Food and Dining

    Well there are two places you can grub and that would be the Cyber Cafe and the regular Cafeteria. The food is great. If you are really into cold cold lunches or really just can't make it on time to your class, but you are really hungry and this is the closest building to you, the Cyber Cafe is where it is at!

    Dorm Life

    There really isn't any dorm life because it is a Community College.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic counselors really want you to succeed but you have to show that you are trying. They will provide you with information for resources and tools to do well in your classes. It is not hard to want to do good here if you really pay attention to what you came to achieve.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are thinking of coming here because you are not ready to go to a University or you just want to start out small, Prince George's Community College is your best bet. Going to their orientation helps you out a lot and knowing the basics of the college. I heard their transfer rates are up there so when you are ready to go to a different institution, there won't be much trouble.

    In three sentences

    It's is a pretty nice campus for a Community College. The staff is wonderful and they do the best they can to help you. I if I were to rate them from a scale of 1-10 I would give them a 8.5!

    Campus police is seen all over campus even through the end of the evening classes. They answer the campus police phone very quickly. They respond quickly to emergencies and are also seen heavily paroling the parking lot.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is non existent at Prince George's Community College.

    Clubs and Activities

    Emails will be sent to your student email account weekly about on campus events. Some events are better than others, but most of them are fun, organized events! If you don't like any of the clubs, start one! The process is not hard and they encourage you to do so!

    Great for these types of students

    Students who may not be able to afford schooling at a 4-year institution just yet. If you are from the PG County area or have attended PG public schools, majority of the students who you will see are from similar situations. Students are very diverse coming from all over the world. If you are interested in meeting new people or learning about other cultures, the International Center is the place to be.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    On the third floor CAT building, there is a Cyber Cafe where students can access the high speed WiFi and be in a relaxed environment if the cafeteria gets too packed. In the Math Learning Center, if you are cool with the Coordinator (help him tutor sometimes when it's busy), there are private rooms in the back for you to study with a group of your classmates. There are nice computers in Chesapeake Hall, but you would have to ask faculty to open up the computer lab for you.

    Bang for the buck

    Classes are reasonably priced compared to other 4-year institutions where most credits transfer to seamlessly.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved with campus organizations. There is a club for almost every type of student. There is also a track and natatorium for anyone who wants to do physical activity. By the track there is a soccer/football field, baseball diamonds, as well as outdoor racketball and tennis courts. Inside the natatorium, you can find a pool, gym, and a few racketball courts.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is a good place to go if you want to have something warm to eat in a hurry. The food is overpriced though. They offer nice home made style dishes. If you have a car, there are other restaurants to go to close by: McDonalds, Taco Bell, Cluck-U-Chicken, Subway, Starbucks, chinese restaurants. Vending machines can be found all over campus and are stocked every day.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at PGCC. By attending this school, you will have to commute. The Largo and UTC campuses are easily accessible by metro. If you want to get a good parking spot, come to campus no later than 07:50am if you have an 8am class. If you are looking for a place to study, the CAT building and library are good places. During midterms or finals, you may have a hard time finding a spot. WiFi is available all over campus, however, it works best in those two places.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic rigor depends on your major and teacher and semester. Summer/Winter sessions are typically easier than Fall/Spring ones. Some teachers are more better at teaching than others, but overall, mostly all teachers are qualified in the course they're teaching. Nursing majors are rarely ever seen on campus because they're always in class or studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    Speak to advisors (academic, financial aid) way before the start of the semester to avoid long waits and stressed out advisors. Have an idea of what you plan to major in, however, if you don't know during the start of the semester, sticking to the General Education curriculum they have will benefit you until you do decide.

    In three sentences

    Prince George's Community College is an excellent institution to get your general education credits from before transferring to a 4-year institution school. There are also good programs for students who are interested in vocational or trade school purposes. The student population ranges from concurrent high school students to older students who were last in school 10+ years ago.

    I really doubt that PGCC will have any trouble with violence/gun control.

    Bang for the buck

    Financial Aid covers almost all expenses

    Academic Rigor

    The agenda is upfront and to the point but some teachers may stretch their deadlines for you once, but don't count on it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to deal with rude people, make sure you meet your deadlines, organize study time with your personal time, and PLEASE enjoy yourself.

    In three sentences

    PGCC is a very nice school, but like all things, it has its flaws. The staff in the financial aid and advising centers are beyond rude and should not be tolerated in an institution like PGCC. The school overall gets a 4.5/5.0 because of the variety of programs that are offered, the nice faculty, the quality of instruction,and the job opportunities within PGCC.

    Campus Safety

    There are numerous securities spread out in the campus. I feel safe. I actually never dread about my safety, such as someone coming to shoot a school or something out of the ordinary.

    Greek Life

    > college Enrichment day >International day > Donating clothes, shoes to less fortunate > Encouragement for volunterring

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several clubs such as MSA; Muslim Students Association, Soccer, Basketball, Poetry club, and other exciting events such as having President Obama come to our school and speaking about a case.

    Great for these types of students

    The poetry Club is great for Students who love writing, literature, reading, and Art. This club is run by a previous Professor. She is well educated. While in her class, I learned a lot about Literature, authors and poets such as Voltaire, Sylvia Plath. Taking her class made me look at the way people express themselves to be more intricate rather than just words. There are ways I analyze things.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a place called Hollow Tree underneath the cafeteria. Most Artistic, odd, outcast, individuals hang out. When I say outcast, I don't mean it in a bad way, but its indifferent how college kids would still play Pokemon and skip and dance, and things of that nature. When I think of College I see people continuously studying and having educated conversation. But I've learned all people are different. We all must find where we belong. At first glance, I thought Hollow tree was unusual.

    Bang for the buck

    I must say some Professors are really good. I had a wonderful History Professor who was knowledgeable about what she was teaching. She never used the book not once. She had a great sense of Humor and she really enhance my effort in learning about History. I also had an outstanding Literature Professor. I learned more about Voltaire. My Professor taught me to question everything and anything.

    What to do for fun

    There are several clubs such as MSA-Muslim Students Association, Basketball and Soccer team, Plays, things of this nature. The plays are surprisingly outstanding. Basically, the campus is quite Entertaining and lively.

    Food and Dining

    The food is quite expensive for the quality. There is not much variety. Breakfast food is horrible, but lunch is much better with a variety of pizza, chicken, french fries etc. I must say I love PGCC french fries, and seasoned potatoes, it's delicious. I also don't understand why we have to pay for cups.

    Dorm Life

    No Campus

    Academic Rigor

    The difficulty would be with the online Math Module. Math is my weakness, therefore I am not in favor of a math module. Although PGCC provide tutors, I'm still not enthused in strategic way the professors want the students to comprehend Math.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you take care of financial aid before the semester starts. Most Students tend to wait last minute to process their FAFSA, and have problems such as lost application. Most time you would need a down payment or set up a college plan If your FAFSA isn't processed yet. Sometimes you cannot provide a down payment so this means you've missed the deadline, and cannot attend for the semester, nor register for late classes. Also, know who you hang out with, there are a few distractions such as foolish activities, and people. Study what you love and passionate about, then you would do well. do not let an advisor help you with your major, you will change it more than five times, there is nothing wrong with being interested in multiple things, but it's better to choose for yourself.

    In three sentences

    I like PGCC because the professors, and standard has proved itself. When I was in High School I heard awful things about the College, by experience I think it's a good college to start with If you go there for the right reasons. There are numerous ways to get help when need such as the writing and tutoring section, and also tutors being present in some class when need. PGCC help you find what you love doing rather than starting a University with all the rigor expectations.

    I do not feel safe their at all. Especially at night. I avoid going there at night, and I do not attend any night classes, due to the fact that I am afraid that I will be robbed, or attacked. A bad neighborhood to be in at dark.

    I will not, since I do not attend to any of their, already, odd groups that they have there. I simply, go to class and leave as soon as I can, not staying there any longer than I have to.

    I should say not, I can barely afford the classes and books, on my OWN DIME.

    The school does not have dorms, unfortunately. However, if you're in need of a place to stay the school does provide living spaces, though it does not apply to the general student population.

    Academic Rigor

    As a member of the Honors Program, I tend to take the Honors version of a class, slightly raising it's difficulty. However, the normal classes are very simple, and the class size is typically small, between 12-30. It makes learning an easy task here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Clubs are a great way to make new friends, knowing your professors can mean the difference between and B and an A, drop by a prospective professor's class before picking your teachers, and make your own schedule.

    In three sentences

    PGCC is a wonderful place to get a feel of the college life. The tuition costs aren't overbearing, and is in fact one of the cheapest in the state. Also, there are multiple clubs and programs which will meet the student's interest, whether physical, ethnical, or intellectual.

    There are many clubs, organizations, and activities going on every week. Get involved!

    Food and Dining

    There are a few small areas to eat on campus. Most students agree that the food is too expensive. Vending machines are a way of sustenance here. Off campus, there are plenty of nearby places to eat.

    Dorm Life

    PGCC is a commuter college. There are no dorms. Parking can be a beast, so arrive early for class.

    Academic Rigor

    Challenge yourself by participating in the Honors program or Honors Academy. Not all classes have the same difficulty level, especially depending on the professor, but the Honors program will consistently offer more rigorous coursework. On the other side of that spectrum, the college will also help push those students struggling with developmental course level classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to speak with an adviser about your intended major. Many students stay longer than necessary to complete a degree because of not enough planning. Get help and map out your academic plan so that you can stay on track and finish in two years.

    In three sentences

    A good education for a great value. Most of the faculty are competent and willing to work with students' needs. The small, diverse community atmosphere provides a place to get involved and take advantage of broadening opportunities. Take classes online or face-to-face.

    Campus Safety

    Partol is always making sure the campus is safe and secure. They also make sure to be on the scene or by you side if something happens.

    Clubs and Activities

    PGCC is very passionate abut their clubs and activities. If you want to start your very own club they stand behind you 100% (as long as its safe of coarse).

    Bang for the buck

    Classes are worth every penny. Only thing are the books in the bookstore are rediculously expensive. They have created a plan where they match whatever price the book is online and match it and give an additional 10% off!

    What to do for fun

    For fun I like to go to the cafe and hang out with people and socialize. Or if I dont feel like shovinh my face with spoon fulls of food I like to go to the basketball games.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe is the best perk! They make deicious pizza and best hoagies, I advise everyone to grab a bite to eat at the cafe.

    Dorm Life

    PGCC is a community college therefore there are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    I give PGCC a 4 out of 5 stars for academics because the teachers are very serious about thir job and ensuring that the students succeed in every subject. The only thing wrong with the school is the communication with the teacher and the student and seeing that the teacher will spare some of their time to assist the student after hours.

    Tips for prospective students

    For those that are looking to applying to PGCC be fully aware of the location of the many buildings on the campus. Another tip is to attend orientation to get a better understanding of how things work and will help prepare you better before your semster starts. Also join the OWL Alert system which will keep yo posted on random school closings or emergency warnings, especially when the winter storms hit.

    In three sentences

    Prince Georges Community College is great for those straight out of high school. This school is what I would describe as a bridge school, whch fills in the gap for those who either need some developmental courses or for those who have been out of school for a long period of time. This school has prepared me academically and mentally for when I transfer to a four year institution.
