I have been thoroughly unimpressed during my time at Pierce College. I graduated valedictorian of my small graduating class, and I have not learned anything at a more difficult level than I did in high school. The teachers just created content during covid and now won't go back to the classroom and give any actual lectures or actually teach anyone. They just use programs that take grades for them and so they don't have to do anything. I had one awful professor who was very old and was incredibly strange. He had ideas like I had never heard before, but he was very condescending to those who he did not like. I did have one teacher, Tony Granata who was phenomenal. He also goes to my church, but I had never spoke to him before seeing him in class. He was great and he was actually nice to the students and he was great to talk to. Brian Heaven was also pretty good, but I haven't had him for a while. The school offers too many online options because the teachers don't want to come back to teach in the classroom, which is unfortunate because I learn better in person.
I really enjoy Pierce College. There are a plethora of groups to assist students from all walks of life, and experiences. The support that comes from the staff is phenomenal and even after classes have ended I still have contact with previous professors as they like to check in. I have not had a single complaint about any of the work or students, or staff in my short time at Pierce
I found my experience at Pierce to one I am thankful for. I transferred there from a much bigger school, and one of the first things I noticed is how close and interactive everything is, you see art from the students all over, you find plenty of other students in the many spots to meet up, and all the professors are engaging and committed. One small detail that I love is the shape of many of the classrooms, instead the normal rows of seating, the desks are arranged in a horseshoe shape. This allows for everyone to be able to see easier, but more importantly it makes it so everyone is encouraged to engage with the class, not just passively listen, and that feels very symbolic of my time at pierce.
My overall opinion of Pierce is that they provide great services. Unfortunately, the tutoring center is not that beneficial to students because the amount of time they give students that do not have an appointment to see a tutor is not enough time to even retain any information. I believe that any student should be able to receive a tutor that matches the class they're taking and spend at least a half an hour. my experience was not great at all because the tutor was not familiar with the subject I was struggling with.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Pierce College-Fort Steilacoom 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 _____.
The advice I would give myself would be to educate myself more about the possible options for obtaining a degree that could help me obtain a career. I would also mention that even though life is hard and scary, don't do everything to please other. Pleasing yourself is very important in living a healthy life. Also, taking medication for attention-deficit disorder is beneficial to your education but focusing on it's stigma is not going to be mentally and physically healthy in the long run. Essay writing is going to be hard but stressing out and over thinking will cause you to gain doubt and struggle to finish, resulting in college applications to be incomplete. finishing essays is more important than making every sentence perfect. All the mistakes made will cause regret and regret leads to low self-esteem, so remember to focus on the task at hand and not the past. You will be happier and healthier.
They type of person that should attend Pierce College is someone that is looking for small class sizes, low tuition costs, and the community college feeling. Pierce trys to create the traditional college atmosphere with events, sports, and comradery, but it is hard to get the full college effect when you live off campus. It is mainly for people on a budget, that need to get their education to move on to the next step. I like Pierce because the class schedules are flexible, and all of my professors are very nice, and want me to do my best.
The best part about my school is the class sizes. They are very small and give alot of one on one time for the students with the instructors.
The worst thing about my school is the parking lot. Sometimes it seems like it's not big enough and depending on what time of day you arrive determines how far out you have to park.
Pierce College, its environment, professors and students give you the support you need to do well and achieve your goals.
Pierce College is best known for it's Early Childhood Education program. This is because of the faciliy created for this program allows students to learn how to become the best teacher they can by getting actual teaching experience on campus with great teachers giving you the knowledge needed to become educated and to spark a desire to grow as a teacher.
What is unique about Pierce is that the class sizes are small, for a small amount of money. In a private school, where small class sizes are expected, the tuition rate is extremely out of reach for most people. I am able to get a degree, work part time, do all of my school work, and pay for school without getting a huge loan that will keep me in debt for the rest of my life. Some people say that community colleges aren't as prestigious, and the teachers are under qualified, but that isn't true about Pierce College.
I think I pretty much knew what I needed to. I want to go to Pierce College in Puyallup Spring quarter.
Some are friendly while others are not.
The most frusterating thing about my school is the impression I perceive that the staff does not care about the well-being of the students. This is conveyed to me by the overall lack of information given to the students by faculty members. Several times I have solicited information from school officials only to be given inadequate information. I have even been lied to about financial aid, causing me to incur unnecessary debt. My experiences in the Marine Corps have reinforced my belief that this is unacceptable and very unprofessional.
