I love going to this school. The academics are very good as well. All my classes I have taken have been at a very high level and always had a high standard as far as homework and assignments and learning. I love the people at my school as well. Everyone provides a friendly environemt
For the price, I think it's an amazing school.

There is a side of the internet FULL of study tips and tricks: go onto Tumblr and look up the studyblr tag. Those blogs are FULL of resources, tips, tricks, stationery recs, masterposts, and more. It will help you and it's an entire community dedicated to learn and to grow as students. Also, make some damn friends and don't be afraid to initiate conversation. You'd be surprised who you get along with. Planners are essential and look at them at least three times a day. Plan AHEAD. Fill that puppy in with all the syllabus knowledge your teachers have so graciously given you. They give it to you so you can plan ahead. You think studying for 4 hours a day as is lame? You know what's really lame? Hangovers and grades that skate on the failing line. That's lame. Get over your urge to party and buckle down Elle Woods style.
Home or the Maryville College Library. PSTCC Blount Campus is fairly noisy and isn't the ideal study-zone.
Farms, roads, more farms.
Adjusting to having to ask for your own help if you aren't social, creating study groups, and going to your professor's office hours like an adult.
Well, so far I've seen a guy come in looking like a farmhand who went through a wood chipper, a guy who went from his work uniform to a full suit and tie, a girl who has become more progressive orange with spray tans each day she comes to class, and the general messy but trying to be casual-professional student.
What parties? We have no alcohol/party scene.
You live at home so... that would be kinda weird.
Oh, definitely. I've taken many classes that have taken my fascination with social change to whole new heights. Sociology Intro and Social Problems are MUST TAKE classes.
I was having the worst day and I was really stressed. Plus, my shoes had broken and I had no money to replace them and the girls who run the office bought me a pair because they didn't want me walking around with bare feet in the cold.
Studying, coffee, awkwardly waving to classmates, wishing the campus was open on the weekends, and waiting for Monday.
It's kind of oddly placed and a bit boxy looking from the front, by the back is where all the scenery is.
*laughs into the sun*
There is none.
It's super cheap, it's close to home, and it's a great investment.
Note. Intensive. I'm currently taking Social Problems and Survey of World Religions. The former class writes only two boards worth of notes and implies a great deal to be learned from reading retention. The latter dumps so much information on you only to have the tests be mostly big ideas and vocabulary. It's a strange world.
It's a large, local community college with multiple campuses across the Knoxville, TN area. It has a variety of majors and quality varies from teacher to teacher, class to class. It's generally attractive and the staff do their best to be helpful. They are a great school that accommodates to everyone's needs.
The Fall Fest and other freebie fiestas.
Passionate (whether that be about good or bad topics, but that's all subjective). Passionate and loud about it. Loud even when they're wrong.
Psychology Club seems to have a rather active presence. I see a lot about the sustainability efforts as well.
I mean... I'm not even sure we have a stereotype. We do get a lot of farm boys from out in the deep woods, but I don't think that's perpetuated as who we are as a school. It's a fairly large school, to be honest. I think the stereotype--as is typical of all community colleges--is that we are somehow less intelligent/capable than those who attend the local private liberal arts college. Absolutely untrue.
The teacher's are touch-and-go, but overall it's a fair academic scene.
Nobody respects the "SILENT" zones in the study rooms or lab. Also, there's this guy in the open computer lab that just HAS to touch the mouthpiece of your water bottle while telling you to put it up or asking if he can hold onto it while you're in the lab. Way creepy guy.
They have some phenomenal teachers and the facilities are really clean.
Someone wanting to goof off and who is super big into a school football team. We don't have any teams for sports and the big team is UT (TN).
Any. Literally any. However, don't think that just because it's a community college that it's an easy ride. Some teachers are pretty chill, others want you in every class and to have extremely detailed notes. Otherwise, the campus is fairly diverse in personalities. Racially? No, not really. I think out of the two classes I'm taking we only have 2, maybe 3 POC.

I really like it! Very good choice if you are new to college expectations and just graduated.. even if not! Plus the teachers try to be flexible if a student needs them to be like if their lives got a tab bit too busy and there are always staff members willing to try to help.

I have attended Pellissippi State on and off since I graduated from high school. It is a great institution and everyone that works there is very helpful. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about PSCC.

I would tell myself to push forward no matter what obstacles comes my way. Send any free time studying. Time management is a key part in success as a college student. No matter what do not give up, keep going. Pay attention in all of your classes.
It is hard to pick something that is bad about Pellissippi State Community College. This far into my education and experience at PSTCC I have no complaints. All of the teachers, advisors and tutors I have came in contact with have been nothing but helpful.
The type of person who should attend Pellissippi State Community College is any person that has the drive to succeed. PSTCC is college that is dedicated to help and encourage students to reach all of their potential. Knowledge is power which is exactly what PSTCC promotes, higher education. College is not easy. It takes a lot of hard work and discipline but with the help of advisors and teachers at PSTCC any student can and will succeed.

If I could speak to myself during my high school career, I would advise myself to enjoy high school more because it is not always about your studies and homework assignments, but also about making friends and furthering the limits of your social life. I would tell myself to cherish the ever growing knowledge that I am earning through my plethera of classes more because, in the future, it could be more useful that I think. I would also tell myself to continue working hard and to never be lazy about my school life and work effort and my studies at home. I would also tell myself to get more involved in my school and to branch out to other clubs that my high school has to offer. Last of all, I would inform myself that it would be a very wise decision to start applying for scholarships as early as possible.
If you want to attend Pellissippi State Community College, you need to be willing to work hard and to attend class everyday, because even missing one day of class can weigh you down a lot. Always take every class seriously because the easiest class may turn into a nightmare if you fail to involve effort in your success in the class. Always pay attention in class and get all your assignments turned in on time. You also need to be willing to spend twice as much time at home studying than you would be involved in class. Try your best!
The most frustrating thing about attending Pellissippi State Community College is that when you are taking a specific, excedingly hard class, the best you can do is to try your best. Some classes are easier than others, but one class may be more challenging than the others. You may have to try harder, but if that strategy doesn't work out, you may need to just do the best you can and accept that limitation. When I am taking a class that is excedingly challenging for me , I set my minimum goal at a C, but if possible, an B.

I would tell my high school self that all the choices he made were the wrong ones. I would tell him that he is throwing away the best opportunities he has to get into a college or university of your dreams and play sports. I would tell him that all those football and soccer scholarships that you have been offered won't mean anything if you don't get your grades up. I would tell him that none of the athletic awards is going to get you into school until you strive to be an exemplary student and honorable person. All you are doing is the easy part. You aren't putting in the book work to get into to any of those colleges. Don't be like present Ryan and blow all those opportunities and spend the first semester just learning how to be a good student and how to study and take test. Don't find yourself in present Ryan's shoes hoping to get a second chance to prove himself academically worthy of being accepted into a university. High school Ryan, you can go anywhere and be anything as long as you work for it.
My school provides excellant opportunities to receive tutoring support.
I wish I had known how truly expensive school is and how much books really cost. I also would have liked to have been more familiar with study skills and note-taking skills as well as test studying/taking skills.
My classmates are all very unique.

Don't try and grow up too fast. Being young is required. Learn to take a breather every now and then but keep your eye on the prize. Do what makes you happy at the time and will also benefit you down the road. Do not ever hesitate to call Mom!
I wish I had looked up the location before agreeing to go here.

Pellissippi has a very relaxed atmosphere with a very diverse student body and gives its students access to the latest technology.
My classmates vary in age and backgrounds, yet all seem to be able to mesh and help each other.
I would probably tell myself to continue to strive for excellence and to apply for those scholarships like crazy!

I would tell myself to keep moving forward and that you can do it. make dad proud, and although times seem tough you've got people to push you forward. I'm living proof you make it. Dont let one person ruin your life, it's sad she's gone but you make so many new friends. Buck up and live life to the fullest, apply yourself for now on and work your butt off at work. Be the guy everyone likes to be around and know. Be yourself brother!
The best thing about Pellissippi is that is a good transitional school for those new to college life. I've only been here a few weeks and I love it and cant wait to start on my degree, it's sad I have to transfer. It's actually a good school although what people say.
Wifi was everywhere, you can communicate with your teachers alot more and that you can work on campus. i thought that was pretty amazing. I'm still learning, I dont know everything about this school yet, I just found out yesterday what the rec center is. I thought it was more of a gym for classes, not just for working out.
