Overall Rating

Prince George's Community College is the most plaisant college in Maryland. The way teachers taugh encourage me and help me undersand more and more the material.Before and after every classes teachers are disponible to help sudents who did not understand well the previous or the corrent material taught. There is a students room where they meet to discours or to eat if they don't have class, and there is the students study room which is quiet and what i like the most is the huge dictionary in that room. There is also a computer room for students personal reseach; that roomis different to the computer lap where teachers taught their material. The staff are ready to help students in desability and students who came in class and appear like they have may be personal problems. There are special advisor for that kind of students and each day advisors are there to check if the student they helped is going go.
