Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    I love being able to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. In the main quad, there's always something going on, whether it be the PCC Flea Market, a jazz band performance, a blood drive, a pep rally, or a Naked Juice sample cart making the rounds. There are a lot of people who smoke, which was difficult to adjust to (I have asthma), but other than that, I cannot complain. Enjoy those breaks between classes!

    I enjoy being here for the available classes I've been able to get the necessary classes to transfer, most students beginning their first year here haven't been lucky enough to get general education classes.

I believe I keep myself more accountable towards my work as well as I have a sense of independence, because rooming you have the people at the dorm with you, but at a community college everyone else seems to be busy looking after themselves. The experience of going to a community college isn’t exciting; however it really makes you grow up a lot faster than you would anticipate it would.
