It's your typical community college. Quiet, safe, and dependable. The food is good for a good price. There are tons of clubs and activities you can do and be apart of. Lots of people in the cafeteria to talk to and get to know. The professors are nice and available with office hours. The school's websites and resources are good aswell.
Paradise Valley Community College really made me come out of my shell right after high school. This was an easy way to slowly integrate myself into college life and it was less inexpensive than going to university right after high school. They had small class sizes and the teachers were very motivating. The community feel was more inclusive and there were various events for clubs, different cultures and the like to connect people. There is an array of different ethnicities and cultures that students could learn from. Overall, my time in community college was a very fun and eye opening experience.
It is a really nice campus. There are plenty of resources and everything is relatively new and up-to-date. It is not too big of a campus but does not lack either. There are many clubs, sports, and activities to be involved in, and at least five events happening on campus every week. It would be nice to have more transfer resources and university representatives available, as well as reliable transfer of all credits to all instate universities. Most class sizes are pretty small which is a plus. I know all of my teachers personally and most of them make themselves very available to students and offer extra help.
I'm a recently returning student and I am continually impressed by the instructors I encounter. There's a strong requirement to work hard in every class, but there's plenty of help and opportunities to study. The school maintains a clean and safe campus, and I've never had an issue. The variety of courses available is also extremely appreciated, because I can take courses that apply to my BA down the street, and at an affordable price.

I would have save more money for college. Because it is a great thing to have an education. With the working world you have to have an education to be great at your job. An education allows you to advance in the job world.
There are different Personality there it awesome to meet them
I really would not consider anything bad at PVCC. Every school is different and accomidates different needs for many different people. I really have enjoyed the time i have spent at this college and will take what i have learned on campus through the staff and in the courses i have take and apply them to the direction in life i plan to take. Yes, i have made error but its by learning that i plan to walk forth and change.
The classes and teachers are high quality and there are good resources to help struggling students succeed
I wish I had know before I came to my school was that the max amount of credits I could take at a semester is 19. If you are trying to get done in two years remember that some classes are worth four of five credits instead of the regular three. Talk to an advisor.
Tyring to find a parking spot if your classes start later in the afternoon.
The school is unique because the community college is linked with other community colleges in the county, so even if Paradise Valley isn't offering a class I need when I need it I can go to another college in the area and the credits all count towards the same program without having to transfer credits between schools.
As long as the school offers the necessary classes, I would invite anybody to attend PVCC. There is something for everybody.
I love the fact that the minute I enter the classrooms at PVCC, the professors reassure me that attending a community college after high school isn't a dumb choice. I was an Honor student all through my high school career, and I constantly feared attending a community college would label me "not good enough" or "not attending a REAL college". I was completely wrong. During my 2 years at PVCC, I have had the honor of working with highly intelligent professors in an intimate setting in which I had a name, and not just an ID number.
Paradise Valley Community College is a pretty small college. It is very welcoming and not overwhelming in the least. All of the teachers are very outgoing and nice, unless you get on their bad side. The students range from just out of high school to sixty years old. You meet a wide range of people and become friends with people you would never think of even talking to. It is a great experience and saves a bunch of money when going to college. I strongly recommend it.
No there none that i see
I can't think of anyone
For me, I never really got into much on campus, I did what I needed to get a good grade and worked to pay for school. I can say that I have met a lot of good people in my classes, many of those people coming from my science classes. I feel as if the science department has some of the most intellectual people throughout the school. Many of my friends have goals and are determined to make them happen the same way that I am. It helps too that we most nearly all want to go into Health and helping people. So for us, instead of drinking on Saturday nights, we hike and go to the gym, or we will go out and talk. We may not be the best to go out and "party" with but we know how to have our own fun. We still drive hours upon hours just to see the stars, hike, or visit some place new. We may even be NPC competitors without anyone knowing. The best part about my friends and me, is that we do not act like anyone, we are ourselves and are proud to be us.
My school is best known for the smallest community college in Phoenix. They are also known for the amazing girls soccer team who made it to nationals this year.
Well academics that you are taking is all depend on what your major in and that it challenges when you take the course meaning when you take the easy course and you continue to go into the harder part then that when you challenges yourself to pass it with Better Grade but make sure you rate your teacher before you take the course because some are not good and some are good
Well this School that I am attending right now is awesome school here In Phoenix Az it call Paradise Valley Community College you get to meet lot great Employees and Students and that you can do lot of Volunteer work here At pvcc during the school semester and after the semester too they do lot Skills of real world and that they do others activity and it can be put on your resume when you apply for job Trust me they can help you out with what it is and that Paradise Valley community college is my home school i love PVCC everyone's are so cool to meet and there lot good things going on with the school so i advise Kids to go pvcc and take look at what opportunity they have there and the help they can give you.........
