Overall Rating

On the Hattiesburg campus, I have not run into a bad instructor. As far as students, everyone keeps to their own buisness. Parking sucks, as to there is not enough for all the students who attend, but its workable (you get your workout in :) ). There is not enough sources on campus for food! One Cafateria, but a samdwhich (which you can make at home) is 6.00! And then there is only one vending machine on the other side of campus (usually empty). So as for "extras" this campus has none. But I'm really attending for thr Physical Therapy Assistant Program and cannot afford the gas to the popularvile Campus, nor can I move to jackson right now for their program. Unfortunatly USM does not have the program :( . So this leaves me with Pear River Community College -Hattiesburg Campus.


Overall Rating

Both my parents went here, and lots of friends. I think it will be a great place to go to school.
