Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
The campus was diverse with various people from different backgrounds. The discussions among them were interesting and enjoyable to maintain. The instructors were mostly great regarding their study and performed well enough to teach the students. There were a few bumps with an English teacher who was a fantastic teacher but had a difficult grading system. Students had difficulty with it however myself and my friend were able to push through and learn appropriately regarding the English language. The instructors teaching science were great to learn from especially from one of my professor named Dr. Ong who was humorous in teaching chemistry. He also gave us a learning experience that didn't send us into a dreaming state and provided knowledge regarding his company he worked at previously. The design of the campus is esthetically pleasing especially with the shade provided in the hot state of Arizona. There were many available water fountains that provided decent tasting water while giving an option of refilling water bottles through sustainability in mind. It was great to be a bear and be part of the campus that really influenced me to grow as a student and person. Youll be surprised by the potential of some classes that might give you a wrong impression. An example would be my critical thinking class that I initially thought was going to be useless but Diana (my instructor at the time) taught the class to consider how you argue under ethical circumstances. Fallacies were an essential aspect to remember in life and in school. I would suggest anybody going to the campus if you desire a cheaper option of attending school while pursuing more degrees. The general knowledge is given through multiple opportunities and options of various courses. There is freedom in the courses with many instructors teaching in their own field. In conclusion, the campus deserves to be inhabited by more students interested in general information while extending for much more.
I really enjoyed my time at PC. The instructors were all amazing. They were all invested in student success. Each and every class was a positive learning experience. Their website was easy to navigate and rarely had issues. Very easy to sign up for classes, review financial aid, and view degree progress. Great school!
I would not recommend taking the Fashion Design program at Phoenix Community College (http://www.phoenixcollege.edu/). You will not receive the help that you need in the classes, especially the sewing classes or clothing construction classes. The department head is one of the instructors and she doesn't provide the help needed for students learning how to sew. She doesn't have time to help you with your projects and she doesn't show an interest in students. She makes you do sewing samples which takes up the majority of the class time. Then you have a project such as a shirt or skirt to turn in at the end of the semester, all of the students turned their projects in late or haven't finished it and she marks the projects down a percentage, which is not fair because you spend your time working on the samples and she doesn't take that into consideration. They are supposed to have a tutor to assist in the lab and the tutor is not always there or ends up leaving. They also combine classes, such as clothing construction and advance clothing construction or tailoring with advance clothing construction. The reason for this is because of low enrollment in both classes, and to keep from canceling classes, they combine them, which is not a good idea. Everyone is asking for help and can't get the help they need with their sewing projects. And an unusual amount of homework is given. Most students do not return or have dropped out. And some of the instructors expect you to know how to sew, which doesn't make sense; especially, if that is your reason for taking their classes, as well as paying them to teach you to learn how to sew and design. Do not waste your time and/or money in any of these classes, even if you get financial aid.
