Greg found the proximity of the campus to his place of residence ideal to pursuing his educational goals at PVCC. His experience was an extremely positive one. The small class size and the faculty’s commitment to guide and support students, in addition to getting to know them, was extremely conducive to a positive learning experience. His Business Logistics instructor, was influential in helping Greg to determine his career path.
The time and dedication that each instructor invested in their students was especially helpful in the higher-level courses he completed. Greg found his instructor in his Microeconomics course outstanding. He had taken this course at another institution and really struggled. However, in repeating the course at PVCC, he found an instructor that was very interested in the well-being of the individual student and not just the performance of the student in the specific class. This was refreshing and created a learning environment conducive to success. Greg recommends PVCC to prospective students as “a wonderful opportunity for exposure to college and to get yourself grounded.”

Greg completed his bachelor’s degree in Global Business in 2008 and earned his MBA at ASU in May 2018. Greg is now a Senior Financial Analyst for the PetSmart Corporate Office in Phoenix.
