Am learning a lot
Go to ratemyprofessors.com. It's a great website to see what your teachers are like, before you even get to class. Having a teacher that fits your type of teaching will make your classes go a whole lot smoother.

Try to get a lot of scholarships when you go to college. I spent a lot of my time working, because I had to pay for school. I didn't really get a chance to do any extracurricular activities. I didn't really make any new friends or get to really check out the school. I'm pretty sure I would have loved being on campus if I didn't always have to work the night shift. I remember one time I got free ice cream just for having my student id card.
Bang for the buck
Education is always worth your money. Just remember, it will pay off in the long run!
Tips for prospective students
Try very hard not to work and go to school at the same time. If you decide on transferring into a program, the school is not going to look at how many hours you worked but at how your grades are. It's very important to have good grades. A lot of scholarships are based on your GPA. It would be shame to not enter a scholarship because your GPA does not qualify. Study hard all during the week, and have some fun on the weekends. Don't forget your long term goals if you decide to go to a junior college.
Great for these types of students
I love school! I just wished I would have had more time to study. Scholarships really help. The worst that can happen is not getting awarded the money. Millions of dollars in scholarships are not awarded every year just because people didn't apply.

Exceptional Academic Resources
Tips for prospective students
Have your mind and heart set on one accord regarding your plan of graduation. Think carefully about what major that you are going pursue as this will be your chosen area of concentration and beginning career choice. Make sure that you know that college requires commitment, time management and discipline. This is not something that comes easy, but as you get into the swing of college life it will become second nature.
Academic Rigor
It depends on the type of schedule you choose, in the beginning start light then add on classes as you begin to handle your courseload
Dorm Life
Pretty good
Food and Dining
Excellent choices in dining on/off and around campus
What to do for fun
Extracarriculars like bowling alley down the road, skating rink 5 miles from campus, on campus movie features, concerts
Bang for the buck
For a state college its a great beginning
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Nothing out of the ordinary
Great for these types of students
Fresh out of highschool, Transient, Transfer

Pensacola State College is a small and fun school. There's always lots of things going on around campus and you get that one-on-one attention from your teachers.
Tips for prospective students
If you're looking for a small school with one-on-one experience with your teachers, this school is for you. There is always something going on around campus and you get to know everyone in your classes. Just study and apply yourself and you're sure to pass. :)
Academic Rigor
This is a great paced school for me because I really have to study outside of class. The course companion materials given by the teachers and school really help when taking a class. Enjoy that very much.
What to do for fun
Pensacola State College sends out weekly emails with fun things going on around campus such as free movie night, blood drives and events in the auditorium. It's also right next to the mall, girls. ;)
Bang for the buck
You really do get the same education from this school as you do from larger universities, but you feel more comfortable with the material and actually retain the information because you utilize it in every class. Tuition is extremely affordable and perfect if you have siblings in college or struggling financially.
Great for these types of students
Great school for students that want a small student population.
Campus Safety
Campus safety is amazing. I always see at least 2 campus cop cars driving around when I come out of my night classes. They actually do ticket cars in wrong spots (or without decals). Also, my favorite part, security will walk you to your car if you had to park far away or if it's dark (or if you just want to be safe!).

Am learning a lot
I am going into my third semester at Pensacola State College (Pensacola Junior College), and I have to say I really am learning a lot from the classes I have taken so far. There are many interesting classes to choose from and the instructors that I have had are very friendly, not to mention they have awesome lectures!
Am enjoying being here
I wasn't ready to move out and go to a big university right after high school, but PSC was a great transition surprisingly! The students are friendly, the staff and instructors are friendly as well. Pensacola State College has many classes to choose from too depending on which of the three campuses you go to.
Bang for the buck
The prices for tuition are reasonable for the small size, but every college is expensive. The bookstores have good deals sometimes on the books, but not always. If you want to succeed though, it's worth the money I guess.
Tips for prospective students
My first piece of advice for prospective students would be to definitely look into the prices first! It might not be as expensive as a four year University but it's still a lot of money. Secondly, go talk to one of the counselors to look at the courses and degrees available.
Great for these types of students
Pensacola State College has every type of student imaginable, but everyone sticks to people they are comfortable with. There are only a few Bachelor degree programs since they just changed to a four year school, but there are many good A.A.'s available. You will know if PSC is the right school for you if you are motivated, devoted and enjoy being in a smaller school.

The educational experience is like any other and you get the best bang for your buck! Classes are smaller and most of the teachers are very approachable and will take time to review information.
Am enjoying being here
The warrington campus is where all of the health professions are held. The facilities are satisfactory and the internship opportunities are boundless. Teachers are amazing.
Bang for the buck
Way cheaper than UWF or even technical schools in the area. Make sure you get in-state rate though because the per credit hour price difference can cost you a $400 difference every term!!! A huge difference in price, but if you are eligible for Florida-state-tuition than this school is definitely the smartest and cheapest choice for a well-rounded college education!
Tips for prospective students
Please make sure to have all your financial aid forms filled out and ready. If you don't have an appointment with financial aid arrive during their empty hours, 8am-11am so you won't have to wait to long. Remember always to check you spyglass account to see if any financial aid information has been updated. (AND ALWAYS MAKE COPIES).
Great for these types of students
Remember to register fast because PSC courses are not only cheap, but very popular since several UWF students take courses at PSC that are transferable and cheaper for their own degrees!!! So register early and make sure to pay courses by deadline or else you will be administratively removed for unpaid courses by the due date of funds.

This is a great college to go to if you are from this area and want to stay home. It's not as expensive as most colleges and the teachers are really nice, and the class times work around your schedule. They have a big selection of degrees and classes and the teachers always try their best to make sure you understand what their teaching you. This is defiantly the college to go to.
Am enjoying being here
The people that go here are really nice and they always have an event for students going on somewhere. They they are near a viarity of places to eat for lunch since it's near Cordova Mall.
Bang for the buck
They are not as expensive as UWF and you still have a variety of classes to choose from
Tips for prospective students
Study alot and make sure you understand what the teacher is telling you.
