Question
Well, the former Dean is now in prisonBrightOther
Well, the former Dean is now in prison for killing his ex-wife, who was also a teacher here. They had an open marriage, and both of them had no problems about sleeping with students. Like this situation, Prescott college seriously underplays the more dangerous aspects about student's lives. There have been shootings and other violent attacks on and around campus, involving students, that were never reported to the student body. some courses are led be older students, and often these "teachers" wish to simply glorify the excessive use of alcohol and drugs to the new students. Heroin use has become a problem in the past few years.

Question
I didn't pay much attention to all theEducation
I didn't pay much attention to all the grades above, just wanted to comment.
This school is a scam. If your parents are paying for your college and you don't particularly care about learning things, maybe PC is for you. If you are looking for a relevant, challenging education, look elsewhere. PC talks a big game about how they are different from the traditional college experience, but it really is not. If you have thousands of extra dollars, you can do some cool activities for block courses - that's different. Otherwise, everything they told me that convinced me to enroll here has turned out to be lies. I have never had a class with a student:faculty ratio of 8:1. Not even close. I have had numerous courses with adjunct faculty or grad-students who are wholly and completely unqualified to teach the courses. While I have had some great experiences, I have learned literally NOTHING from the vast majority of courses I've taken.

PC does not have the same kind of student body they had a decade ago (average age 24, lots of work experience, driven...) but they still market themselves that way. They will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you in the door. I have worked in the Adventure Education field for years, and I am a combat veteran. I would not recommend this school to vets or anyone else. It really is terrible.
