This is my first time in college, so I don’t have much to compare it with. It’s no Hogwarts, but magic does happen. I started in August, trying to think of it as another year of high school. 3 months later I don’t feel like a school kid any more. My opinion matters here and my choices are not dictated by adults. The classes are interesting enough to make me look forward to them every week, and I am making friends!

I feel like it’s a good place to be. Though I’ve had my fair share of bad professors the support system is fantastic . If you need a tutor immediately there is in readily available, reaching out to the dean for an issue is really accessible which is a big help if you have a complaint!

Pikes Peak community College has its perks and unique touches like all colleges. The student life always has small poles around the college you can join. The college itself has a nice environment. A place I enjoy staying at was the Recruitment center near the bookstore. This place was quieter. And was more open spaced. The library was definitely helpful if you wanted tutoring, or just wanted to study and didn't mind being around others. The library itself wasn't loud, but it was at times crowded. Professors here were very respectful and nice, many did have set hours and straight forward rules and regulations. Just listen to them, respect them, and you will be fine. Overall Pikes Peak Community College is a good college.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Time management has to be one of the most important aspects of success in college. Scheduling study times throughout the week may help with time management. It's' also a good idea to make self-imposed deadlines for assignments as well. At times, it can feel like there is plenty of time outside of the classroom to get things complete, but without structure and time lines, many assignments are not given their full attention in order to achieve good grades. Most importantly, I believe that it would be a benefit to most students to find someone who actually has a job that he/she is trying to achieve by getting their college degree. Nothing can be more valuable than real, lifetime, experiences. Knowing what is required of a profession, can inspire any student to either pursue their education with passion or to search for an alternative route that will bring lasting success.
