Most Helpful Review for Los Angeles Pierce College

It goes without saying that every learning institution has its share of poorly-coordinated, poorly-tempered, or just poor quality instructors. Even though Los Angeles Pierce College is no exception, the amount of knowledgeable, organized, well-mannered, and dedicated professors far outweighs the rare poorfessor; the marine biology program at Pierce College is particularly lauded, and, speaking from personal experience, it is my opinion that Dr. Wells is one of the best professors I have ever had.

    It's ok, lines for financial aid are long and tedious, getting appointments with councilors requires about one week in advance. If you need help with smaller thing the student service building is pretty helpful. Beware the copy tech room, go to the library if you can for all your printing needs.

    It is a much larger campus than LAVC, and some other community colleges. In my experience, the professors there are a tad better than others I have experienced in other community colleges. LOCATION, AMAZING-RIGHT NEXT TO THE METRO.

    I have enjoyed my time as a student at Pierce College. The Professors are well informed, continuing their own education in some cases, and interested in the success in their students. The counselors are extremely helpful and keep you on point as a student.

    My experience at LA Pierce College has thus far fulfilled my needs as I prepare to move forward in my academic career. The professors, opportunities available at the Center of Academic Success, counseling services, staff and academic references available for students (e.g. college library and library database) have all offered me an expansive range of support to strengthen my academic skills. Also, just as important, LA Pierce College has done an outstanding job in ensuring students are protected and feel safe, especially this year where there have been several unfortunate events of gun violence in many college campuses in Western United States.

    It's one of the best community colleges and despite the competition, you can make it through if you put the effort. There are tons of great professors willing to help you. The school gets overly crowded in the beginning of the semesters.

    Pierce College is a school composed of credible and experienced professors that teach with a natural and educated vigor. The campus is well-sized, large enough for the opportunity to engage with new people daily yet small enough to easily maneuver the grounds. The only downside of Pierce Community College is the organization of how the school reacts to so many students trying to get into classes at their school.

    Totally depending upon what your future plans are, Pierce has a great pre-vet/veterinary technology program, which is incredible. Good hands-on learning that you cannot get from a strictly online program. Great teachers and students within the program that really care and will go out of the way to help anyone.
