After I graduated from High School I knew that going to a community college was my only option. A lot of people told me that it would be High School all over again, and I believed them that were until I finished my first year of college and started my second year. My First year was really a transition year and I realized that the material cover is at a much more quicker pace as well as more difficult, but my second year was when I really started learning more about myself. I am realizing more and more each day...

    Pasadena City College is a very good school to go to. It has varies of majors for you to choose, and there are always teachers or counselors who will be happy to assist you at any kind of questions you have.

    Overcrowded and impossible to get classes you need from just this college. But it has great programs and extra training... if you can get in.

    Pasadena City College is not for those with a weak will or those who need guidance. If you come here, you need to have a grit stronger than you have ever imagined, an even stronger persistence in face of adversity, and the strongest sense of self. If you do this, you will succeed, and you will go far.

    Pasadena City College is a challenging class that offers great quality education. However, due to the increasing number of students, it has been difficult to get the desired class and transfer within 2 years.

    PCC is very clean and professional. Classes are very hard to obtain due to high student volume, but the teachers are high quality. Overall this is a very good school if you're able to get classes.

    Pasadena city college has definitely expanded into a wonderful college during the past few years. Although I've been here for about almost four years now, the classes and professors have been very educational and inspirational. I will definitely miss all my friends and professors once I transfer out of here!

    Great stepping stone, financially and academically, for students who are uncertain nor ready to pursue a four-year university. Challenging if students choose to apply him/herself and take rigorous courses from intellectual professors. Rewarding if one is openminded.
