    I loved my time at PPCC. Don't take my ratings to mean I didn't. A little too easy in some classes and does not prepare students good enough for the next level. Three campuses that cater to CO Springs well. The clubs and social life are not good but it is a commuter campus. A lot of leadership potential if you take the time. For a CC, it's good. You can work full time and still get your degree with how flexible the classes are. There are campuses at all ends of the city and plus online classes. Not really a place to make friends or have a social life. But the education received here is on par with a 4 year university. ...Continue reading

    AWFUL experience in all of my encounters with admissions, advising, financial aid, and testing center. At the Rampart Range Campus, there is no sense of community, and it is easy to tell that everyone wishes they were elsewhere. The are old people roaming everywhere, which adds to the loser-like vibe this place brings. ...Continue reading

    I'm in this school they have 3 campuses, I love there location and teaching The professors I have had in the last 2 semesters are engaging and have helped me in my improvement.

    If I could focus enough I would take online classes. Most people are there just to go to school and then go to work so most people don't socialize much in class. There are three different campus' out of all of them I think the Centennial campus will give a better vibe than the other two. Wifi is very spotty and signal drops frequently. Best to have a hotspot. Never given an advisor even after being here for two years. They have enough money for new projectors and painting every wall the same color but not enough for a parking lot. Club & social life is fairly nonexistent. Would not recommend attending! ...Continue reading

    It a good place to go to if you have a family and other commitments in life.

    Good school, sometimes it feels more like a 4 year university with respect to the 200-level sciences. Wish it was cheaper and professors were better. Of all the years I've beed here there have only been 2 professors who I enjoyed and didn't feel like just another paycheck. Did not like how much I spent on books that I (barely) used for 1 semester. The classes I wantedneeded were not conviently located and parking stinks (usually) Food is great though. Rampart: Beautiful! It reminds me of an indoor mall haha! Downtown: Small and quaint. Not the best though. Falcon: Don't know. Some professors.... you got to watch out for. I always look them up before I join the class. ...Continue reading

    I have never dealt with more of an uncooperative, unwilling to help, and more disorganized team as I have with PPCC.

    OK so this school is a great starting point. My favorite, however, is the Rampart Range Campus. Very good school! Profs are hit or miss, but there are more good than bad.

    I'm speaking about the Downtown Campus. More artsy, no place to hang out, no real place to study, bookstore closed on Saturdays so no coffee for Saturday class. No food but nasty vending machines. Cafe's way too expensive for students off campus. Very clickish mainly because it is where the art student's hang out. I often have to rely on this site to see if the professors are alright and won't slaughter me. They provide a lot of materials for you such as computers, printers, and etc. The food is good but so expensive. I'm so tempted to just drive to the Walmart by Centennial to get my lunch there. ...Continue reading

    It's a great school for people who are only getting their associates degree. My experience here was honestly fantastic for the most part. There are little issues I had here and there, but nothing that makes me regret going to PPCC. I got a solid, cheap education here, and should have continued on to get a degree.

    This school tries so hard to scream that its the same as a 4 year university, but in doing so sacrifices on the quality of classes and in many other places. I was here only to earn a certificate and already held a bachelor's degree from a top eastern university. PPCC is more for those on a trade school path. I would not recommend taking this short cut if you want a solid college education. Most of the services put into place to help students and provide information are sub par and often times clueless on topics they should be such as transfers. ...Continue reading

    It caught my attention how every class seems to require a NEW expensive 'Pikes Peak Edition' book. They have lost several of there main teachers and the new ones they are bringing in do not know how to teach. I feel I am not getting a quality education here. However, it's obvious the college wants their students to do well in their academics (for the most part, anyway). If you're looking for an affordable education, I would recommend PPCC. ...Continue reading

    Centennial: It's a little old... it's alright. The campus is pretty nice and people are pretty friendly. Its a community college in a decent location so there are people from all walks of life. I like the school and don't mind finishing my 2 years there before I transfer. Buildings are a bit outdated but it does the job. Not much connection or camaraderie between students,there aren't really any sports or major programs to foster it. Education is good. Variety of races, ages, and types of personalities. Campus is easy to access. Education/Financial aid offices can be a bit confusing and hard to contact. ...Continue reading

I was here only to earn a certificate and already held a bachelor's degree from a top eastern university. PPCC is more for those on a trade school path. I would not recommend taking this short cut if you want a solid college education. Most of the services put into place to help students and provide information are sub par and often times clueless on topics they should be such as transfers. ...Continue reading

    It caught my attention how every class seems to require a NEW expensive 'Pikes Peak Edition' book. They have lost several of there main teachers and the new ones they are bringing in do not know how to teach. I feel I am not getting a quality education here. However, it's obvious the college wants their students to do well in their academics (for the most part, anyway). If you're looking for an affordable education, I would recommend PPCC. ...Continue reading

    Centennial: It's a little old... it's alright. The campus is pretty nice and people are pretty friendly. Its a community college in a decent location so there are people from all walks of life. I like the school and don't mind finishing my 2 years there before I transfer. Buildings are a bit outdated but it does the job. Not much connection or camaraderie between students,there aren't really any sports or major programs to foster it. Education is good. Variety of races, ages, and types of personalities. Campus is easy to access. Education/Financial aid offices can be a bit confusing and hard to contact. ...Continue reading

    It is an amazing school. I wish they offered Junior and senior level classes so didn't have to leave. The Math Department at PPCC is significantly better then the one at UCCS! I've finished 34 of my degree so far and plan on finishing next year. It was a decent school. Suggest you do your research of the professor before you register. Att cell service is hard to get inside a lot of the classrooms and computer lab, but theres wifi. TBA for instructor is annoying. GL ...Continue reading

Professor Reviews (30)


  • Class rating 5/5
    He was helpful if you asked. He was always willing to stay after class if you needed help. All the tests are open book open note so that is a huge plus. I suggest to read though because you will be better prepared. The classes are a tad boring and lectures can drag. Overall I would take him again. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Best chemistry professor I have ever had. He's really funny and playful, and extremely helpful too. He always has a happy aura about him that will lift up your spirits. Such a fun class! When I will look back on my experience in this course I'll have nothing but good feelings and thoughts about him. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    His lectures can be pretty dry at times but overall I enjoyed his class. He drops your lowest test and lowest 5 homework so if you don't understand a certain chapter it doesn't kill your grade. He really loves math and is willing to stay after class to help students understand the material. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    If you have to take an Econ class as part of your lower division requirements take him it is an easy A. If you are an econ major I would not recommend because you probably won't learn much. ...Continue reading

    Ivana is the most carting professor I know, She actually cares that you learn Calculus! Don'y expect an EASY A, in fact, it is a very difficult class. I took this class 10 weeks over the summer, and pulled a C. There is an obscene amount of homework. Expect upwards 150 problems per chapter with 3-4 worksheets on top of that. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Marcus knows what he is talking about, but it is difficult to understand what he is talking about. The lectures are not brought down to a freshman level. He does not post grades, so you do not know what your grade is until the end of the semester. The class itself was interesting, but I would not recommend taking it from this professor. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    He is a brilliant but not a great teacher for this level. He is unable to teach to the people in his class. He should be teaching engineering math. I am normally great in math and I found his teaching style so horrid I dropped the class. Don't take him unless you are an engineering major with a strong math background. ...Continue reading

    Anna Joy is very Helpful, offers extra tutoring to students that ask. Practically tells you what will be on the test if you go to her tutoring hours. Extremely helpful, and wants her students to pass. If test average is below 75% she will curve in order for her students to do well. Amazing professor, wish she taught 112! ...Continue reading

    If I did the class over I'd take a different professor for sure. The written questions on her exams are horrendous. Due to the written questions it takes weeks to get exams back. On the up side yes she lets you drop 1 exam and 1 quiz. ...Continue reading

    Mr Mitchel is a horrible instructor. Rarely ever did any actual instructing in class. Homework took forever to be graded if it wasn't for Spring Break I don't think he would have ever gotten caught up. He also takes off points for the most random things. Making an Excel sheet but don't use the formula he wants- points off whether it works or not. ...Continue reading

    Dr. McMullen is a great teacher. He doesn't beat around the bush or sugar coat things. After every exam he'll write the high, low, average and median score on the board. Sometimes his stories are a little drawn out but they always relate back to what he's trying to teach you. You can go to any 201 lab and even his 202 labs if you need more help. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Not much in way of extra credit, but she does drop your lowest test and lab. Go to class take notes she will tell you this is a test question. Hard subject but 90 percent she will tell you what you need to know. Test reviews are awesome, record her reviews, and study, you'll get an A! Slidemulti color drawing lectures. Hard material. ...Continue reading

    I didn't originally sign up with this teacher, the original got sick and couldn't teach. Gordon is not very clear and is not good at communication with his students at all. So unless you have read the entire math book and understand it, take a different teacher. The test comes around and it's like you're seeing problems for the first time ever ...Continue reading

    The lectures, though long, were good. However, she put out no study guide and didn't really give us much of a clue what to study for exams. Also, I believe there's three exams crammed into the last six weeks of class-and before that there was only one. Missed class a couple times-the school didn't have a sub for her. Otherwise helpful & nice prof. ...Continue reading

    The course itself is VERY easy. I stress again, VERY easy. The paper assignments are ridiculously scrutinized. she deducted FIVE points because I forgot a semi colon in a sentence. Biggest advice is to do well on the paper assignments and the tests and quizzes are a piece of cake. You can finish the class as early as you'd like which is a plus. ...Continue reading
