Even though I can only speak for myself, I would say that my experience at the college has been exceptionally well. Since my high school is affiliated with the community college, commuting to and from it is very easy. The course load is hard, but it's not to an extent where I give up on it. A few things that I admire about the college are that they always have office hours and there are always college and career opportunities for the students.
It is a great place to build the foundation of your education and affordable as well. They're welcoming to all ages. The teachers are knowledgeable and also still practicing what they teach. This combines academics with practicum. I would recommend this school with no reservations.
Community College of Philadelphia is an outstanding institution. I am stunned at he accomplishments of my professors and thankful that they are devoting their time to Community College when they could likely have higher salaries at bigger universities. If I could fulfill all of my degree needs at Community College I would absolutely stay there for four years rather than transfer.
Overall I think CCP is pretty good. We get the same work as four year universities. Teachers care about how their students are doing. They are willing to help students even outside of office hours. There is a wide variety of clubs and activities. So there is always something to do. I'd say the campus is safe, I haven't heard of any incidents in over a year. I have to admit CCP is not known for its food. Students are better off getting food at one of the many eateries in the area. Thank god it's located near center city.

If going back into time and I had to tell young LaTasha one thing I would tell her to slow down. Looking back I can know see myself running and getting no where fast. I had no clear direction, wasn't getting good advice, but I knew I wanted to be successful, great. If I would have just stopped, slowed down, and listened to my heart I would've found out I knew the anwser all along.
That I am not close to the main campus and the satellite campus do not offer all the classes that are needed for my major.
My school is a smorgasborg of traditions, faiths, and values; offering it's students a truly culturally diverse atmosphere.
Helping young Philadelphians in the inner city get off the streets and start a higher education.
The Community College of Philadelphia is cheaper than most schools with very affordable education. Also if there was any reason why you couldn't go to another school you can go to this school to gain an associate's degree in which you can transfer your credits that are able to be transferred to any University you want to go to as a part of the dual admissions program.
If I knew that college would be this challenging I would have prepared much more for the tasks that I have to complete while in school. However, saying what I should've done, or could've done, I just wish I would have know what it really takes to be a college student. It's not just about skating by anymore, the future of your career is now on the line and I have to do what I know is best and excell and gather all the known and unknown and just work towards success.
The type of person that would benefit from these classes is one who appreciates a challenge while looking forward to growing as an individual. Also, if there are students that have lost their luster for academia out of a sense of hopelessness, I would recommend this program. It has an incredible way of reestablishing a sense of ability and motivation for anyone who might be feeling like they've lost their direction.
You'll find people of all race, class, gender backgrounds and I promise you they will all be interesting!
The Community College of Philadelphia happens to have an incredibly unique program called the Honors Program. It is tailored towards students who come from varying backgrounds and gives them the opportunity to familiarize them with the reality of college while at the same time giving them the tools and information they need to move on to a four year school. This program, while challenging for just about everyone, is an incredible motivation for most students who did not previously realize their ability.
The price is not as expensive as most colleges.
the most frustrating thing about my school is the schedul. in my major we don't have much choices to pick the best schedul for us. also math and acounting teachers are not many as i was expecting. There are really few teacher who teach calculas one an two. i don't have choice , i have to take one of them because i like my major and i keep going for it and i still get A in all classes.
I think that CCP is for everybody. Especially since the population there is so mixed anyway. They fit the needs to many different types of students. All you have to be is a go getter.
Classes are pretty much straight forward. You are taught the subject, and you're given a specific amount of work. each teacher is different, you have to learn to adapt to their rules.
