Pima Community College is more than just a community college; it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students. Pima College's dynamic and welcoming community is one of its most distinguishing aspects. I was greeted by a varied collection of students, instructors, and staff from all walks of life the instant I came into campus.

Great college. The professor's are passionate about their subject matter. The facilities are nice. It is a commuter school so you are there to get educated. The school culture is extremely supportive of the students. There are multiple campuses a student can attend. They even have childcare for children 3-5 yr of age if you are a full time student.

Long waiting are formed just to put your name on the sign-in sheet while people keep jumping ahead because they 'just have a simple question' while you wait and wait. A new method of setting an appointment with an advisor should be deviced, or maybe an area where frequently asked questions can be answered quickly. The sign-in sheet should be made available with a time slot and your place in line honored. Cell phones should be 'off' in these crowded areas.
