    Take all the classes you can take at PCC since they offer the same classes at bigger universities, only more expensive. Usually, the core classes are required so take them anyways, you pay cheaper here than bigger school. They also have Pantry, which gives out free food for students so make sure you take advantage of all the clubs and benefit on campus.
