In my opinion, Pasadena City college is not a bad school. The atmosphere is quite calm, but that could be due to the pandemic. Overall, everyone is doing their own thing and minding each other's business. Some of the events we hold are fun and small. They really try to do their best especially when it comes to cultural events. Most of the staff I have met are friendly and welcoming. We have plenty but still need more services. For example, a woman's program or a service dedicated to women's needs would be great. Overall, I would say the school is decent.
BLACK LIVES DO MATTER.
I hope you are all well. My name is Ravi and I’m an immigrant from India. I never attended PCC but went to a 4 year University and medical school. I have 2 Bachelor’s degrees, an MBA and M.D. What I’m about to account for next is regarding a PCC student who was in the Criminal Justice Program at PCC.
In November 2015, I was rear ended by a vehicle during rush hour traffic. I drove my car to the side of the road for safety. Unfortunately, the driver who hit my vehicle had driven off. Fortunately, or so I thought, a car stopped in front of me soon thereafter. My initial thought was that the car stopped and probably they were a witness to the accident. But nothing could be further from the truth.
There were 3 people in the vehicle. Two people got out (one about 19 years old and the other person was a female in her 50’s) and as I greeted them. Immediately, the young punk started to tell me that he wanted to do a “citizen’s arrest” on me. I asked why. He stated that as I left the accident, I left an accident scene. I “explained” to this punk that I needed to drive to safety to avoid rush hour traffic. I questioned the punk what gave him the right to interrogate me. He stated that he was a ‘CRIMINAL JUSTICE STUDENT FROM PCC”. This white punk was so entitled to think that he could circumvent my rights as a citizen.
This incident bothered me so much that I finally decided to do something about it in 2019 and I called and spoke with the President of PCC, Erika Endrijonas about the matter, especially considering the killing of Mr. George Floyd. She listened to my rendering of my experience and she stated that there is some re-structuring of the Criminal Justice program at PCC. My impressions of her were that she was dismissive of my recounting of this white punk.
Final thoughts: Law enforcement doesn’t create “bad cops”. Rather law enforcement just amplifies a sense of power and entitlement of people who seek to work for law enforcement, especially over immigrants and black folks. This punk from PCC is a prime example where the Criminal Justice program (such as at PCC) serves as a conduit for white nationalists, entitled, power hungry, etc (Pick your adjective) to go into law enforcement.

At first, I had thought that Pasadena City College was doing way too much to welcome freshmen because I am in the pathway program and the 8-hour orientation for three days was a lot for me, especially on the eyes. I then realized that it was actually extremely helpful as the fall semester had passed. I do wish the orientation days weren't so long.
When I first attended PCC in 2018, I was really nervous. I didn't have any friends at first because most of my friends from high school either decided college wasn't for them or they went farther away. So, when I got to PCC I thought people would just mind their own business and just get their work done and leave. However, the students and staff there at least from my experience were nothing but nice and helpful. I appreciate how comfortable PCC makes a student or anyone for that matter feel. The professors are understanding and just want their students to succeed.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Pasadena City College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell my high school self to study more and prepare myself for tests better.
Pasadena City College is a great place to explore the endless opportunities of college life. There are numerous clubs and volunteer opportunities on campus as well. The staff in the Science building is unbelievable, they are willing to help anyone that seeks it. Even though it is a city college, the course material is not compromised, and always provides a challenge.
The value of focus. True happiness comes from the ability to follow a dream to it ultimate fruition. When I first started at Pasadena City College, I bounced around from class to class, from major to major, lacking the ability to truly listen to my inner desire and the courage to stick it out.
To attend Pasadena City College, the kind of person you have to be is anyone. Anyone who is motivated to learn, no matter the age, anyone who has passion for knowledge and passion for life. Anyone who lives life to the fullest is welcomed at Pasadena City College. If a person does not have the characteristics to attend this school it will not matter because anyone is anyone and that anyone will not regret attending PCC.
WE are best known for clubs and diversity.
Even though Pasadena City College is one of the largest community colleges in the nation, I have been impressed with the personal attention I have received from professors and administrators. Professors make available their office hours and even their email addresses to students and they welcome conversation and collaboration, which makes getting my education feel like a team effort in which I am never alone.
I think the worst thing is that we need to rush to get the classes we want!
They seem enthusiastic, motivated, anxious the learn and participate is class activities. Involved in the subject at the time.
Enthusiastic in the Project at the time. Willing to put in the extra time and effort to see the Project completed. The Students at least in my classes seemed to be like one close big Family. Which made me very Comfortable which was great.
I love my school. the environment is great. There are tutors and computer labs availble to help my studies and there are many nearby places to get a quick snack to eat.
When I tell my friends about my school, Pasadena City College, I brag about the safe, clean and well-maintained campus as well as their excellent Art Program.
PCC has a lot to offer to its students.The best thing about PCC 's academics is the honors program. In my experience, Honors professors are at another level compared to regular professors because they are passionate and excellent teachers. The coursework cam be heavy, but they can really challenge you to work harder and think critcally.
Pasadena City College gave me the opportunity , and the realization that I really do enjoy the career I have chosen. A career in acting and stage. It allowed me to participate is several Productions, which now I've been bitten by the Acting,Film Stage bug.
I also learned a lot more of the History of Film and Movies. PCC. exposed me to more of the Classic Movies , which I would
never have seen ,or desired to have seen. Which I must say sparked me to research deeper into those movies or other such
Movies. This just made my Passion for Film and Theatre that much more stronger. PCC. did a great Job , but now I need to move on to Bigger and more broadening Education.
Young, and fast paced. your average Young Adults. All shapes, Races, Sexes. Just your average College Student Campus.
Someone who is not willing to study to get a good grade.
The most frustrating thing about my school is costly of the book. I personal think that buying book are unbelievable price which I can't afford. I feel like author and schools are trying make profiteers for those kind book. Make it education as profits. I see all the student try to save money because books are so expensive that more of students had secondary jobs at certain restaurant, car wash, and stores. Their secondary job help them buy book, however it cut down FASA aids and make it difficult concentrate at school.
