This school has its pros and cons like any school. I am convinced that your reasons for going to school and your personality/attitude will determine whether or not Pensacola is the school for you or not.
I chose to attend PCC because of its conservative Christian standing. I chose to leave PCC because the education program was not accredited--which left as my only option for teaching in the arena of certain non-Catholic church schools. Since then, I have obtained my degree at a state university.
Before coming to PCC, I was respected in my church as a Christian man of God even if I did not just parrot back the "correct" phrases. That changed at PCC. I was a nobody, I didn't know the correct independent-Baptist lingo, I had to be "trained" to think PCC-style. Most of the students around me were either rebellious, hypocritical, naive, or a combination of these. We were told that learning obedience (to the college's contradictory rules) would build self-discipline and would teach us to obey God. I saw the opposite happening in many students. Most either became disobedient to the school and/or to God or became brainwashed...
Some students did not see this picture, in part because they learned to avoid run-ins with the rules. Other students were lucky enough to quickly find friends who helped them "stick with it" to get through college. I was disturbed by the hypocrisy in one group and the rebellion in the other group, so I isolated myself for the most part.
I surprised some of the "good" guys by walking the line even though I disagreed with many of their policies. (I only recieved a few demerits.) However, even if I would not have left because of the non-accreditation, I would have left because of the sour taste Pensacola put in my mouth (and the mouths of others) toward conservative Christian values which I held and still hold as valid and important.
I believe there were some professors and administration officials who were truly great, godly individuals. However, certain policies they had to follow put a damper on their positive effects.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PENSACOLA to any student who wants to be honest with academics and with life while pursuing true godliness. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PENSACOLA to any student who wishes to excel academically and pursue a teaching career.As others have urged, I too would urge you to seek God's face and to choose a college or university that helps develop your God-given potential. Remember, though, that the God--not the university--should be your focus.
