Palm beach state helped me save tons of money while working towards my associate's degree. I was very fortunate to receive financial aid and have my expenses fully covered. The professors are very knowledgeable and sweet some will even go out of their way to make you feel included and really aid you to succeed. It is a small college but there are still tons of opportunities for socializing.
However, the more in depth classes you take (organic chemistry, physics, etc.) the harder it is to find help. There are less tutors and professors see to care less and less. Also, the staff could be a bit nicer and more responsive. There are good resources but it is a hassle to use them.
My favorite thing about this school is the availability of free tutoring in the Student Learning Center. I have been taking advantage of this like crazy since returning to school, and it has helped me tremendously.
Sometimes it can be difficult to speak with advising due to long wait times, so I suggest making appointments instead of walking in.
If you are not looking to go to a university and want to live at home around the Lake Worth, Florida area, then palm beach state college is definitely your school you don’t have to pay much to attend.
The one major thing I didn’t like about the college is that if you have something going on in your life, some professors will care but some will not, I think it’s like that with every college but that’s one thing that stood out to me because I was absent ever so often.
It is very organized and the staff is very helpful.
They spam your email a lot, but it’s nothing unmanageable.
It gave me time to prepare myself for what college and university are really like and helped me prepare financially to live on my own as well.
