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...

    Community college is the most cost effective way to go to school. Pasadena City College is one of the best community colleges in the state, with fantastic teachers who really care about their students, great academic programs, clubs, and information on how to succeed. I have had the ability to participate in many great educational programs where I could tour different universities, learn about financial aid, gain internship experience through the school's STEM research program, collaborate with others, and get academic and psychological counseling.

    The college is very diverse you will be treated with respect here. Overall, the campus is smaller than average but very easy to get around to your next class. The college is also one of the top accredited campuses for Associate degree transfers!

    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.
