"I started my journey at Pierce College going between the Puyallup and Lakewood campuses. Life eventually caused me to take a short sabbatical, and a couple years later I returned to Pierce College, finishing out my degree at the Fort Steilacoom campus. From my very first encounter with the Pierce College at Fort Steilacoom administrative staff, I was greeted with a kind smile and a warm welcome. The staff graciously walked me through all the processes to enroll (paperwork, financial aid, etc.) and highly recommended to make an appointment with an adviser (which I did), who worked alongside me to make an educational plan and obtain all the required classes to graduate. When a class was not available, they helped me to trouble shoot and even encouraged me to reach out to professors for permission to attend a full class -- and it worked! Pierce College at Fort Steilacoom is an excellent higher education institute that provides exceptional education. Not only are the instructors and professors brilliant and clearly competent in their field, they clearly enjoy what they do and make learning FUN! Who doesn't need a little fun in their life, especially when it comes to learning? I thoroughly enjoyed coming to class. My desire to learn was elevated to a whole new level when I walked through those classroom doors. It is not an understatement to say the academic rigor was intense. There were many long night spent on homework and projects. Fortunately, the professors always provide an open-door policy. They make the time to help their students succeed! All a student has to do is take the initiative, and have a real intent and desire to be an active participant in their own success."

"As an older adult returning to the classroom I had a different prospective. Advising was of little help. Some required prerequisites had nothing to do with the course work, total waste of time & money. Make sure your credits are transferable to the university you are planning on attending, otherwise you will have to retake classes again."

"The professors and instructors were readily accessible. It was easy to get help when needed. I enjoyed the campus. Advising was not as skilled as I would have liked. They pushed me to take easier science classes the first year which resulted in a slower start towards my BS degree. I lacked experience and took the advice offered, as a result, I took too many courses than needed."

"Unfortunately, this school no longer offers the Human Service Substance Abuse (HSSA) program. Still a great place to go for general requirements."
