Fatoumata - 03/24/2021

Prince George's Community College is pretty college that may be a perfect match for people seeking for smaller classes and diversity at a very fair price. In fact , there is around 20 students per class coming from different background and countries .There is large percentage of Black, Hispanic and Asian students .From my experience , I can say that the professors are really nice, understanding and available. The financial aid office is also comitted to provide effective assistance and supportto the studens. At Prince George's Community College it's not hard to get a scholarship or grant , students usually just have to fill the Fafsa and if needed seek assistance from the office to submit their application. Prince george's community college has two campuses both located in Maryland , one in Largo and the other in Hyattsville .After going at both location , I can say that the college is truly safe , campuses are both secured, diverse and close to public transportation. However, I think Hyattsville campus has a advantage over Largo , in fact there is a mall just accross street with many store such as Target, Ross, Foot Locker,Ulta ,Marshall and many restaurants such as Chitpole , Popeyes,Five Guys. Not to forget that these stores are usually hiring , so I think it's a good opportunity for students to get a part time job just accross the street. Overall , I think Prince George's Community College is great school to attend if you want to study in a diverse and safe place ,full of opportunities .

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

    Dear Keshia, This is a letter that you need to read before you leave for school this semester. Open up those books and go to work! Nothing can defeat and overcome your will and power to learn--not even teachers and difficult reading assignments. Push through. Only you can uncover your deep desire to learn, finish school, and continue achieving your dreams. Please do not listen to your high school classmates. They do not have the experience to help you make the decisions that weigh so heavily on your future. Use trusted sources, school counselors and a college catalog can go a long way in helping you to break through that freshman glass ceiling. Hear with your ears, see with your eyes. Sink into and allow yourself the privilege to fully immerse into your only college experience. A promise of many golden opportunities awaits; I know I can do it! Love, Keshia

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    Attending a community college has allowed the possibility to communicate with older adults; the traditional university setting is somewhat boxed in.; what I mean by that is, the students who attend the traditional universities are around the ages of seventeen to about twenty two or so; some of the students I met are in their mid to late twenties; even some were in their thirties or forties and that did not bother me one bit; seeing as they were older than me, they shared a lot of interesting stories with me; from these experiences, my classmates are amazing!

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

    I feel that the worst truth I could tell about Prince Georges Community College is that they do not provide a nurturing environment where students can learn and grow. When students really need help from the advisers or registrar they just hit them with roadblocks and unrealistic rules. They do not offer alternatives or sugesstions to help with each students' questions or concerns. The college just seems like a bank that only takes deposits-- the students are not reaping any benefits from the relationship if they cannot register for the classes that they need.

    i would advise anyone who can afford to go to a four college to come to PGCC because it takes longer when come to this school to acheive what you want. it takes longer because my experience here is that, they do not plan the semesters for you like a four year instution does. you go with your own pace and for me i don't think that is a good idea for individuals who do not have that much responsibilities yet.
