"What I enjoyed most about PPCC is that the instructors genuinely care about their students. I originally enrolled at PPCC with the hopes of pursuing a business degree; however, after the guidance and encouragement from the English department, I switched my focus to English. The faculty is amazing and very passionate about what they teach."
