What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and open. The classes are usually pretty small and engaging. Most of the students there are great and all of the professors there are helpful and respectful. The best french fries from the student center building are made by the older guy who works in the cafe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it was a great stepping stone to a University. The professors there are extremely caring and friendly. They understand the difficulties of being a college student. I love the facilities and free services they have. For example, I really took an advantage of my $10 credit each quarter for printing. One page was only 5 cents to print!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel great at Pierce, we have a great variety of ages, classes and I don't get uncomfortable from it. The professors are available even when the class is over. I feel the staff go out of their way to invite you to events. They always have posters up and posted everywhere. They have calendars so we can know the important dates to see if we can go. I am so glad that I can be at Pierce College and I can still be close to my family. Going to Pierce is great, plus I get great financial aid. I only wish I could have done running start in high school to get my degree sooner rather than later.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have an interest in the world beyond my own because I believe exposure is the greatest education. I am excited to expand my horizon and peer into the distance like Galileo, into a new world. From sand to skyscrapers, the United Arab Emirates has risen to one of the Middle East’s biggest economies bringing with it UW Seattle. Having the chance to participate in a new development is exciting and attending the Puyallup campus is no exception. Washington’s diversity is incredible. Through conversations, students and professors learn from each other to solve problems bearing semblance to the real world. Great ideas eminent from great conversations

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have only been at Pierce College for two quarters now and I've only had two professors. I have taken Hybrid classes both quarters. I really appreciate that the college offers different class types that allow for students with busy schedules. I wish that they would offer block classes in the morning because that would fit into my schedule better. Most of the morning classes require daily attendance and for me, that isn't feasible. The campus is beautiful and the people are welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a Running Start student attending Pierce College - Puyallup Campus I feel overall important to Pierce College and accepted by the faculty and student life. There is active on-campus help for students who struggle through the Tutoring Center, Writing Center, and Study Rooms. Almost all professors and faculty don't look down on Running Start students for their age and treat us as adult college students that are responsible for our own actions. There is no rating for on-campus of off-campus housing because there is no housing at the Puyallup Campus, but there is at the Fort Steilacoom Campus. The campus itself is beautiful and surrounded by trees, and it feels as if you've stepped into another world from the busy South Hill streets. There are always going to be professors that aren't as agreeable as others in any college that exists, it is the same with Pierce College. There are professors that dislike any other opinion and dislike Running Start students particularly, but the nice professors and the help for students that's available far outweighs those that give students a hard time. This campus feels like they care about each and every student, and it shows with the kind faces of the faculty, the advisers that stay in contact with you to almost the point of annoyance, and the free resources available to students. This has truly been the best college experience I feel I could've gotten as a college student, even without my involvement in too many extra-curricular activities I have met extremely nice people and feel right at home in the Pierce College family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This year marks my third year at Pierce Community College. I am currently still obtaining my Associate’s in Biology, which I will be completing this Summer. Over the three years I have been attending Pierce, my time here was well spent; for the atmosphere at Pierce is very welcoming and diverse, as well as academically challenging to help students strive. When I first came to Pierce, my initial thought was how nice it was to finally be at a college, considering I was a high school student in the Running Start Program. This school made me feel safe and encouraged rather than push me to my breaking point. Because I was still in high school at the time, I was very anxious to be so young with all these older people, but Pierce made me feel okay to want to start my education earlier. I went into Pierce wanting to just get a general Biology degree so I can find a purpose for it because of my love for science, but now at this present stage of my life, I have made the decision to go more in depth in Biology and study environmental science. No matter a four-year university or a two-year community college, the “college experience” to me was this school. The freedom, the acceptance, the school that gets people to the first step of their career. Sure, I may transfer to another college, but Pierce is where I figured out where I want to go next in life. Everyone knows that plans change, whether a person is still figuring it out or they still have no clue on what they want to do in their future, Pierce helps people recognize their own passions or their stepping stone into the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very diverse school that is open to all people. I went here as a running start student and this is one of the top schools in the nation currently. The other students around the campus are helpful and supportive as well and are always around to answer questions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Pierce College! The community is very friendly and there are always new people to meet every day! The staff take their jobs very seriously and care a lot about their students. Also, there are a lot of activities that go on with the college which is awesome! The only "bad" thing about the college is that the parking lots are very crowded and it can be a challenge to get a spot if you aren't lucky.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing school, but definitely has its flaws and there are definitely things to improve. The food is tasty but pricey for the portion size. It is almost $7 for a burger that is fairly small, a muffin is over $3, and a salad is almost $8 for a small prepackaged salad. There is not near enough parking; it is to the point people have to resort to parking on the grass. The professors for the most part are amazing, but there are some that shouldn't be teaching. I have met some of my favorite instructors I have ever had at Pierce, but I have taken classes where I have to teach myself almost all of the curriculum and was unable to get any help because they didn't know how to help me. But on a brighter note, the campus is beautiful, staff is very helpful for the most part, and I feel very safe.
