Phoenix College is one of the best MCCCD colleges. The majority of the teachers are excellent at what they do and are passionate about teaching. The small size of the college provides an intimate setting where you can really get to know your classmates and teachers.

Phoenix College is not like any other community college, it is full of amazing helpful resources to not only help you accomplish the associate's degree of your choice but to also do great things while there. It is filled with a wide variety of degrees and certificates that will prepare you and give you a look at what to expect in the work field.

Kishan from Phoenix, AZ
I give Phoenix Comnunity College a ten, with one being the lowest and ten the highest. It was an awesome experience, the teachers were friendly yet strict. I learned so much in such a short time it was well worth it.
Elizabeth from Mesa, AZ
University of Phoenix offers a fun and challenging environment if one applies oneself. In any learning environment there will be pros and cons that one must address. In the end, it is up to the student to find the niche that they fit into rather than listen to wild rantings of disgruntled students.
