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

It's not as intimidating and scary as it all seems; whether it is a college application, job interview, or anything else just know that nerves are normal and that everything is going to end up OK. Also push yourself out of your comfort zones. College has so many oppurtunties to offer: why not step outside of what you know and take advantage of what is offered to you (especially if it is free). And lastly, it is ok to cry. Cry all the time, as much as you want. It is a vehement stress reliever and afterwards you feel like a new person and ready to tackle anything that comes your way. College is going to open so many oppurtunties to you:TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM ALL! And make a few life long friends a long the way.

Students range from high school students to people that are returning to school at a later point in life, as well as people from different religions and ethnicities.

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

Don't be a procrastinator because that trait will be your worst enemy when you go off to college. It's easy to just click the computer on and forget about the Mt. Everest of homework while serfing the sweet waves of the internet, but that won't benefit you at all. Talk to others by joining a club or volunteering, and don't be afraid to fail or be rejected. Don't forget that college costs money either (you'll find that your funds will quickly be depleted) and don't stop applying for scholarships to pay for school. Make time for friends; you don't have many and those that you do should know that you appreciate them. Hobbies are also important or you'll become as mad as a hatter and spout jabberwocky. Finally, and most importantly, believe in yourself! Doubt is natural, and you're going to wonder if you're making the correct choices in life over a million times before you find your calling. Don't be discouraged simply because one thing did not work out. You'll find where you are supposed to be in due time and have to be patient.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known more about financial aid and how to find scholarships.

This school is awsome in that the classes are small in size and their is help for all the courses you need to take here from tutors in the learning center for free.

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

Transitioning to college is scary but you can do it. Focus on school and help yourself. Don’t try to help others before you finish college. You will be more useful to others with a degree then without one. Also don’t be afraid of taking the hard classes. They will be challenging but well worth your time and effort. And if you ever get stuck in your coursework don’t be afraid to ask for help from a friend or a tutor. They will help you tremendously achieve your goals. I know you are a very shy person but get over it. Going through college will help you overcome this and make you a stronger person.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Their Nursing and their Vetrinary and auto tech programs. It is also and incentive that if you graduate from this school you are guaranteed admission into any state University.

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

Don't stop going just because you wanna make money. I did that and set myself behind many years. Even though you are making money now it doesn't mean you always will. Stick it out and finish, and you will have a better future int he long run.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wishes to better themselves either for a better career, or just for self satisfaction. This school is open and accepting of all people from all backgrounds.

Do not be scared to ask for help, and to reach out for a helping hand. Your going to need it. Take in every moment you can. Enjoy it, but do your work. Keep up the great work, you've come so far; and you will go so much further if you keep pushing.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is trying to get as much schooling out of the way as possible, if not everything.

Work hard and do not think that you are incapable of conquering big work loads! College will be hard and you will have to manage your time, money and other resources with your degree in mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is by far on of the best community colleges I've encountered. The teachers really do look out for you and want to help you succeed, and the variety of classes to take is unreal. There are various campuses around tucson, so it's easy to find a campus convenient to you.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

Like any community college, the stereotype is lazy students. Sure, there are some, but any school has them. There are so many different people here from different backgrounds that are here for many reasons, and that's what makes Pima such a great place, they welcome all.

What are the academics like at your school?

Wonderful. Like I had said initially, the variety is amazing. The teachers really do care about your success i class, and will respond if you reach out to them. The transfer programs definitely prepare you for the next step in your college/uni career as well.

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

If I could give the high school me any advise I would tell myself to get a job in a hospital immediatly to discover where I'd like to work before finishing classes towards a job I might not be interested in. I would also tell myself to get loans, volunteer and do whatever it takes to remain a full time college student. I use to think that I could juggle a full time job and part time school but I ended up needed more classes and stressing too much over bills. Now I am motivated enough to know that I will do whatever it takes to finish as soon as I can because I never would've believed that at 24 I would still need 3 more years of school.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the unorganization. You can call two different people with the same question and get completely different answers. It is also almost impossible to get any same day counseling or any kind of same day faculty help. I believe this is due to unorganized scheduling and filing of paperwork.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People that have finished their general education requirements for an associates degree should not attend pima community college because they do not offer degrees higher than an associates.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very diverse in personality, race, age etc. We are all there for the same reasons, to learn and recieve our General Education credits to then hopefully transfer onto a University.

My school has 5 different campus that are in every side of town which makes it convienant for all students wanting to attend

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

The advice I would give myself as a high school senior is to enjoy every moment of it. Have fun, join clubs, run for royalty, take not only your required classes but electives that really interest you. Your senior year flies by and although your counting down the days till graduation do everything to make it a memorable last year of high school with your friends because after high school your out onto the real world and everything changes. As for your classes dont let senioritis take over, work your hardest aim to be top 10 in your class because it will all pay off in the end with better college oppertunities.
