What is your overall opinion of this school?

Prescott is very welcoming and open place. We encourage diversity and creativity openly. We have small class sizes with a 9 to 1 students to teacher ratio. First year students don’t live in dorms but extremely eco friendly town houses with personalized house mates (they are very nice). The campus is relatively small which gives students easy access to classes and student recourses such as library.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Prescott College has many opportunities, but it is up to students to take advantage of them. I loved my time at the school and every class I've taken. It's definitely not the school for everyone but if it's right for you you can really excel here. It takes a lot of dedication, passion, and focus on your goals. If you're willing to work hard and advocate for yourself, there will always be someone willing to help you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Prescott College is the school that allows me and others the opportunity to develop our sense of self while simultaneously gaining competence in our fields of study. During the process of independent and self-driven academics, Prescott College is able to provide a unique learning experience for students by incorporating the school's values with our actual experience in class. Because Prescott College has small class sizes, dedicated professors, and an eager and driven student body, Prescott College is an amazing and important place for students who seek a close-knit community and academics that prepare them for life beyond college. Overall, the school is incredible and I can't imagine being somewhere else for my college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is the worst school I ever could have picked for a graduate degree when I didn't know any better. It was such a waste of time and money. The counseling program isnt accredited, they don't give you grades so you can transfer anything if you would like, none of the professors are tenured and hardly any had a PHd or seem to care about the students. I took classes online and sometimes I would interact with a professor once a semester. On top of everything the colloquiums suck and my papers got sent to offices that don't even exist. This school is SO disorganized and such a waste of money. It is a scam. Think twice before you go here if you care about your education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that Prescott College is a university dedicated for innovators to network and build a stronghold, and get the most that they can out of their experiential education. Absolutely, I couldn't have chose another college that would have gave me the attention, and essence as a student where my voice is heard and my actions are supported by both staff and faculty. I do not regret attending Prescott college.

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

Dear Highschool Me, By the time you are my age you will have lived in the Caribbean, rafted the Grand Canyon, swam with sea lions and been chased by Bighorn rams through layers of red sandstone. You will have the love and respect of your friends and family. So here's what you should know in your last year of highschool: the things you don't know are numerous. So in the meantime learn to be comfortable in your own skin. You are going to do things that other's only dream of. So be humble. Don't overthink things; be happy instead. Look for joy. Don't worry about insecurities; they will kill your self esteem. And tell your truth always, because people trust those who are truthful. Know that you have to keep moving forward. Don't sit. Don't procrastinate. If it doens't challenge you, it doens't change you. You're smart and creative and you have a critical eye. Choose the harder path. Take risks and put yourself out there. Attitude is everything. You are amazing and will go far without these words. I challenge you to go even farther.

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

First of all I would tell myself to get my act together because being forcibly moved out of my hometown is not a reason to slack in school, especially as a senior! I would get better grades and attend school more often, then maybe my GPA would've been higher and I would've gotten accepted into the school that I originally wanted to go to. With my current knowledge of college I would make sure to 'tell myself' to take more challenging classes that way the classes in my future aren't as hard. I would tell myself to start saving money instead of wasting it on meaningless things, I would also make sure my future was better planned. Other than that I am proud that I am where I am, except for the money situation. I would tell myself to keep up the motivation and make sure to accomplish everything that I set my mind to. Not only to be the FIRST generation in my family to attend college but to be the first to accomplish doing so and get something out of it in the LONG run. I want a career NOT just a regular job.

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

Be open to the idea that who you are now is not who you will be even in a few short years. Always keep working toward your goals but do not be afraid when that means leaving your current path for a new one. Above all, believe that you are right to do these things. Don't let anyone tell you that your education is not necessary or important. No one else will want this for you as much as you want it for yourself. It will be hard work but looking back, you won't regret putting yourself first because having your education will give you a the security and stability to pursue your dreams. Lastly, I would say to drink it all in. You will take classes that you will not realize how they will impact your career or you as a person, and discover later that they've change the way you view the world. Education is a powerful gift. Don't squander it, but believe that you deserve it.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We all inherently learn through our individual experiences, and Prescott College is unique in that it celebrates this idea by supporting each student to achieve a degree that is personal and unique, based upon their own individual learning style and experience. Prescott is known for their commmitment to fostering a holistic education, with an emphasis on the themes Ecology and Social Justice... encouraging students see the "bigger picture" with the importance of giving back to our communities and caring for our environment. Basically they are a step-ahead towards creating a better world in the realm of higher education!

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

The Journey truly is the Destination! Keep an open-mind. Get ready for some of your greatest challenges yet. Expect the unexpected. Always remember to follow your instincts, and trust your intuition. Remember that the ultimate goal is to learn...we only get so far on our own, so asking for guidance whenever one feels lost is honorable in an educational pursuit, and nothing to ever be ashamed of. Open your mind, open your heart, open your eyes and get ready to be wowed at your capacity and ability to learn and grow. This is an excellent and exciting time period for expansion in understanding all that exists out there in the universe...and finding the ideal space where you fit in it, wherever that may be. Change is imminent. Your understanding of yourself and that, which surrounds you will be shaken, twisted, challenged, and drastically altered in such a way that is unimaginable. Change can be one of the most difficult challenges to face, especially when our sense of identity or beliefs is brought into question. Embracing the challenge, the fear of the unknown or seemingly beyond comprehension, is actually the very essence of becoming an Educated Being.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Prescott College is ideal for the highly motivated, self-disciplined, eager to learn student who wants to accomplish earning a meaningful and purpose-driven Higher Education degree. Prescott students are open-minded and ready to take their education "into their own hands" and make their dreams into a reality... but of course, not without forgeting that ultimately the "Journey is the Destination". If you never felt like you fit in to the "mainstream" education system, but have a deep-rooted desire to make a difference in this world/life...Prescott College is for you!
