I was suppose to recieve a scholarship toQuite BrightPsychology
I was suppose to recieve a scholarship to PSC, & it didn't happen because of the school. I had a 3.5 & because I was a transfer PSC was not willing to give me any money at all.

In my opinion the campus is very slow, dead spirited, and feel like an oppressed campus. I felt like PSC was not adding to my life, but sucking the life out of me due to the feel of the campus.

I felt like the quality of education was not good at all because of the coursework and also the quality of the teachers. It was not a challenging, nor do I feel like I benefitted from being at PSC. A lot of the teachers at PSC are graduates of this school, this was one of my biggest irritations because I saw it all PSC not being able to produce well educated students. A lot of the students knocked on my dorm door the night before the final because they didn't know what was going to be on it because they never went to class.On a lighter note, the school is very family oriented (a little too family oriented). If you like tradition, PSC has got it.. The president is doing a mighty fine job with putting PSC on the map with this Bless the Mic Series.

I was surprised by the positive comments left for PSC, maQuite BrightPsychology
I was surprised by the positive comments left for PSC, maybe some of the admissions staff were playing a joke. I must say that the teachers and faculty are very easy to access - even the president. However, that's about all. The cafeteria does not cater to a diverse student population and many students complain about the greasy smell and food that doesn't look like (human) food. There aren't many active student-run organizations, so the campus tends to be quite boring. Outside of the very small campus, Little Rock , Arkansas is more like a small town, and not many things are in walking distance from the school. Your experience here is going to be whatever you make of it, and if you're interested in starting new organizations and creating your own activities, this might be the place for you.
