Guys & Girls:
I worked with a few permatculture students in a watershed management class, and they were very hardworking and outgoing.

I still have not been to Prescott to find this out, but I am excited to!

I do not live on campus.

I haven't been able to participate in any yet, but I have heard form current students that it is a beautiful facility with a strong emphasis on the outdoors.

I really like the limited-residency aspect of it, and am very excited for the colloquia. The program seems very independent and close-knit.

Although I am starting in Spring, I have heard from current students that the classes are challenging but very rewarding.

There is a variety of off-campus dining options near Prescott College. However, always check on how late they are open. I was surprised to find many places closed at 8 or 9 p.m.

I love the mentoring aspect of the limited residency undergraduate program. Instead of just online classes, you get to find mentors in your field of study or in your home town. Then you create classes with those mentors. This provides a great one-on-one learning opportunity and also allows for a lot more hands on type work instead of just book studying.

No need for a car on campus as all buildings are within walking distance. No permits needed for parking. Parking was convenient and easily available.

There are no frats or sororities on campus. I am working on getting a national honor society on campus though.

What you see is what you get! Prescott College is the only school I know that lets you enter your information online and see exactly what your award amount will be! I haven't seen another school transparent enough to tell you up front what scholarships you'll get. A basic, upfront, online calculator is identical to what the financial aid office uses to determine institutional aid amounts. Compare numbers with them…they’ll match. Got to http://www.prescott.edu/apply/true-cost-calculator/index.html

There are no organized team sports provided through the college.

It is very easy to get into your area of study at Prescott College, but can be tough financially if you are in the Adventure Education department. Most of "AE" courses have additional course fees, this is true for many other programs as well and can be rather frustrating if you don't have the funds. I am in the Human Development program which I love and is not advertised as much by the school. So far I have not hit any troubles at the school that are related to my major.

The school is mostly white upper middle class privileged kids. For Arizona, it's fairly diverse and pretty tolerant/accepting of people from different backgrounds/lifestyles.

There are many neighborhoods within walking distance of the school with very reasonably priced housing. Most of the houses closest to the school are older and may not be in tip-top shape, but they are worth it for the price. Many rentals allow pets and keeping gardens and chickens is not at all unheard of. Because Prescott is such a small town nicer, newer homes in newer neighborhoods can easily be found within 15 minutes driving time from the school.

Getting financial aid at Prescott College is easy enough. I don't think it is easier or more difficult than any other school. However, the offices here seem to be very disorganized and students should really be proactive about knowing what they need and what should be happening. Often if it is left to the school to make sure all paper work gets completed and everything goes right, it won't.

Health & Safety:
The security at Prescott college is very good. I have never felt unsafe.

Prescott College is really supportive of self-directed learning. The school has offered so many courses that I am interested in and are right along the lines of my degree plan, but when there were areas that I wanted to study that the school didn't offer, staff and administration practically bent over backwards to help me achieve my goals. Some of those goals included learning a foreign language and traveling abroad, both of which the school has limited opportunity for with the courses available.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T22:29:26Z
I think some things that set my school apart from other schools is the environment and how one with nature it is. It is a very green school. Along with that it has very different classes and the ability to create your own major.

The finical was what really sold me and my family when it ultimately came down to finally choosing a school. Prescott college was really affordable and I received scholarships on top of my financial aid that I didn't even think I would qualify for. If you need more in the end the finical aid department is very friendly and capable of making it more affordable if it has to be by giving you another loan or anything. I am satisfied with what I got and so is my family.

Prescott College is not very diverse and the city of Prescott is not very diverse. Despite that, the school is very open to diversity and there is very high tolerance for people from any race, ethnicity or background. The school population works frequently with people from communities all around the country and the world and handles diversity issues on campus very very well.

Self Directed, but Never Alone. Prescott college really encourages students to take responsibility for their actions and to create a learning program that best fits what they want out of their education. Although they encourage you to take your education into your own hands, they are with you every step of the way, making sure you get the most out of your college experience.

The dorms are actually brand new so they are really nice. I love how new everything is and how the dorms are built like little town houses with three floors and a kitchen and little living room and washer and dryer. It is really nice. It is worth the price when you think of all you are getting.

The campus is very open and free. The rules that are in place are there for good reason and are generally respected enough that the campus doesn't feel strict at all.
College Junior 2013-07-31T20:24:13Z
The campus is beautiful and close to town as well as national forest and outdoor recreation opportunities. The buildings on campus have a themed color palette and are nicely landscaped. I feel very comfortable on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
