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.

Calin - 08/04/2020

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.

Zeanie

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.

Kemba

I like how convenient it is to get to my classes on time because of the small campus. There are a few food trucks and stores, just a couple of minutes away and there's also a coffee shop inside the main building. The library is huge and there's always someone to help. Most of my classes were small, and the teachers always helped students who struggled or needed extra attention. I think it's better to take a tour of CCP. I think it'll be worth it.
