Great campus. Great price. Nothing but spiritual oppression and hypocrisy from Student Life, however. If you want to be treated as an adult, capable of making your own decisions, simply put, do NOT go here. If you want to be sheltered and treated as a child and be told when to go to bed, you'll love it! It's just that simple.

PCC has no care for any student unless they are not an "exception" student. I had a special migraine disorder that required me to lie still until it passed. Usually took 6 hours. No matter what I tried, I could not get an approval for the classes since I no longer have dr's notes. Nor do I have the money to spend on a dr's visit for something I already know I have. I was asked to leave since I had missed too many classes. So if you want to attend PCC, expect to never get sick on a long term basis or you'll probably be given the boot. The staff is also very hypocritical. Many different instances with this one.

First off, yes PCC has rules, but those rules aren't hidden and don't magically appear once you get there. If you don't come from a "strict" religious background then PCC probably isn't the place for you. Before I went to PCC, I heard all of the horror stories how everybody was out to get out demerits; and while that may have been the case several years ago, it definitely isn't true today. Trust me, I'm one of those people who has "power" to write people up and we don't like writing people up. Yes the school is very conservative in a lot of areas, but you are there of your own free choice, so your experience depends a lot upon your attitude. If you have a bad attitude going in, then you're probably going to have a bad attitude coming out. As for the academic side of things, there is a lot left to be desired, at least in the humanities department. PCC does have several good programs. I would say that it has very good musical, graphic design, nursing, business (you can get an MBA for free through the GA program), education (teaching in a Christian school), professional writing, English, and criminal justice programs. But when it comes to humanities, specifically history, pre law, and political science, you get exactly what you pay for, a lousy education. Most of the history faculty is extremely biased toward conservative thinking. I have no problem with someone being biased as long as they can present the information in a factual way and can tolerate a student having an opposing view. Most at PCC can not. I've heard, and this is no joke, that FDR, the New Deal, progressive income tax, direct elections of senators, the UN, and the Lend Lease program were all acts of the devil. The school does not offer any programs/internships to help students who are interested in government/politics/law, except for one practice LSAT offered once a year. The head of the pre law program has never gone to law school, but somehow he's qualified to give advice on attending law school? The pre law classes are challenging and a number of them are taught by unqualified teachers. Seriously, the French and Spanish teachers do not have degrees in language and are only teaching because they were born in France or a South American country. Instead of taking more business, finance, or government classes, pre law students get to take such English classes like World Drama (plays from around the world- of nothing else does, this class alone should discourage you from taking pre law at PCC) and Creative Writing. These classes are unnecessarily challenging for pre law students as they are geared towards English, Professional Writing, and Performance Studies majors. Law schools usually don't care what or why you got a C in a class, they just care that you got a C. It always seems that these teachers don't realize that you have other classes, so they give an exorbitant amount of coursework and are extremely tough with grading. I hope this review is helpful and I wish the school would see it and consider changing some things. All that being said, if you are looking at going to PCC for history, political science, or pre law and you're wanting to go to law school or learn more about government, do not go to PCC for these programs. Unless you think that the UN and the New Deal are satanic, in which case you'll do fine. If you're wanting a good education in a Christian environment and you are interested in politics/law than I would suggest a business/finance degree. or a criminal justice degree (although CJ teachers are just as biased, but you can actually learn relevant things in their classes; and your GPA will look much better for law school; and you have other career options upon graduating besides law school). I wish I could say positive things about my major, but I can't.
