Most Helpful Review for Paradise Valley Community College

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...

    The classes are very easy, I've had many wonderful teachers in my first year at PVCC. The staff is very accommodating, and they all work hard to maintain a safe environment for students, and it shows. I didn't expect much from PVCC, but they've really impressed me.

    Paradise Valley Community College is a phenomenal campus for many students to jump start their collegiate careers. PVCC is a place where students can find a great deal of resources to help lessen the many pressures that come with college. The main magnetism of PVCC is the community vibe that can be found throughout the entire campus. The Faculty and staff are exceedingly helpful, attentive, and supportive unlike larger universities.

    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!
