Why Did I Choose Pikes Peak Community College?

Friends here in Colorado Springs have asked me why I chose Pikes Peak Community college for my two year program, and I have to say that there are a number of reasons.

The first reason I made the choice was that they welcome students of all kinds. There wasn’t a complicated entrance policy or anything that kept me from applying or attending Pikes Peak College. This was important to me because I didn’t want to get bogged down in an application process that could have taken time away from my studies, and work schedule. I simply wanted to be able to sign up for classes and start attending college as soon as possible.

Next, I chose Pikes Peak Community college for convenience. There are four campuses spread throughout the Pikes Peak region for you to choose from with PPCC, and this made it a lot easier to find classes that would fit into my work schedule. Also PPCC offers an online college degree program within my major, so I was actually able to take advantage of that and not have to show up in-person to a classroom. Having an online degree program was the ultimate convenience for me, because I work full time and have small children to care for.

Variety was a key factor in choosing Pikes Peak Community College, because they offer over 200 programs to choose from. You can choose from majors like criminal justice, fire science, or a variety of nursing or computer degree programs. I really like that they offer so many technical courses, and not just associates degree programs. If I want to, when I’m finished, I can return to Pikes Peak to get my real estate license even!

The scheduling at Pikes Peak is a major convenience to someone like myself, because they offer classes around the clock. You can schedule a course days, nights, weekends, or even do college online! I know a number of people who don’t learn well online, or just want to see a professor in person — So they choose to attend courses at PPCC in the evenings or on weekends, to help with their work schedule. My personal preference is for the online program, which I found to be engaging and fulfilling for my style of learning.
