I enjoy being at Pitt Community College because there are a lot of things to do on campus that many individuals do not realize is there. Such as activities, clubs, and places to hang out at. I actually enjoy going to the events on campus.
Bang for the buck
I would say paying for the education and attendance at Pitt Community College was worth it.
Tips for prospective students
My tips for prospective students would be stay safe, follow the rules, have a positive mind to have your priorities straight and face your fears of procrastination. Also, be in class everyday on time and do your homework. It'll come in handy at the end, which would leave you very proud.

in rating pcc i will give the school a 10. the reason why is because of the staff, they are very personal and up front with each individual student regardless of their age. another reason i went as high as a ten is the school is small, compact and easy to navigate around to get to your classes easily.
Tips for prospective students
tips for prospective students are i would say; 1. stay in constant contact with your advisor 2. communicate regularly with your professors and 3rd. be on time with all deadlines if possible turn all things, papers, forms and assignments in before they are due.
Academic Rigor
pcc academic rigor is a 10 they push towards academic excellence. academic rigor is very important it means your future. as a student find out your schools academic rigor model to make sure that as a student you can reflect this in your work, your performance which in turn demonstrates your thinking skills.
Dorm Life
pcc does not have dorms you have to find your own housing, however pcc does have a list of housing that is close to the campus. the list rating is a 10.
Food and Dining
pcc has a very good cafeteria that offers a variety of foods for everyone to enjoy, their rating is a 10 with me. eating on campus saves you time, gas and you can eat and work in a quite clean environment. however, there are restaurants near campus, actually across the street. then you run the risk of losing that good parking space you found this morning.
What to do for fun
fun can be found right here on campus, check the school website calendar for activities and events. i have gone in the gymnasium and participated and several of their activities and had fun.
Bang for the buck
the cost of your tuition,books and classes does not compare to the invaluable experience you will have before going off to a four year university. i give the school a 10.
Great for these types of students
pcc is perfect for that student that wants to further their education with out the high cost, and the loans associated with colleges. it is also great for the student that does well in a small personal learning environment.
Clubs and Activities
i give the clubs and activities a 10 if you are a people person join a club and by all means participate in the school's activities they are fun.
Campus Safety
i am 5'2 small in statue and i feel very safe on campus. i have taken night classes my freshmen year and never felt apprehensive about walking around the campus at night. plus the campus has a lot of light at night with lots of light poles to park under. also the campus police is in a central location.
safety is a 10.

Am learning a lot
I have actually only taken online classes here at Pitt because of my demanding work schedule. I am currently taking a biology class and I have learned more from this online class than I could ever imagine in a classroom. My teacher is passionate about what she does and it makes it so much easier to learn and have fun in the class.
Am enjoying being here
I honestly would rather prefer attending a university, but this is a great alternative. The staff really tries to do what they can to make your college experience worth it. Everyone I have spoken with shows compassion and are willing to help out most situations.
Bang for the buck
The cost of Pitt is one of the bigger factors affecting my decision in coming here. I planned on attending a university, but was afraid that I could never afford the school without having to take out loans. I applied here and financial aid is enough itself to cover the costs of my classes and books.
Tips for prospective students
Stay organized and keep everything for your records. Apply for financial aid because it will truly be a big help to your wallet. Meet deadlines. Once you fall behind on one assignment, it is hard to get back up. Do not choose dropping classes as your first option, talk to your teachers and try to work something out if you are struggling. Finally, just stay focused. Tell yourself everyday that you can do it and look at the bigger picture of your future to motivate yourself.
Great for these types of students
Self-motivated learners, students on a tight budget, distance learners.
