What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palm Beach Atlantic is a great pick for some, but it is most definitely not for everyone. The people are very kind, and the academics are incredible, but if you want to go to college to party or to be a part of big events, PBA is not for you. The major bonus of this school, other than the amazing beach town feel, is that there are a wide variety of people to get involved with, and the professors are very personable and helpful to each individual. Like every school, it has its ups and downs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palm Beach Atlantic University it the WORST school I have ever attended. The dorms are old and falling apart whether that be with dust, mold, hair. It is DISGUSTING. This school has many unnecessary rules and expectations if you want a fun, normal college experience do not attend PBA. I have been trying to transfer out of this school and they physically will not send my transcript because of these unnecessary rules that ONLY apply to PBA.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at PBA and love it so much! All the staff are friendly and approachable, you can really tell that all your teachers not only care for you as a student and the education you get but also for you as a person and your well being. There are lots of on-campus activities and several different ways for student to be active within the school and the community. I don't think I would be this happy at any other school.

Palm Beach Atlantic University is a beautiful campus with an equally wonderful environment. I am excited to be learning there and making the most of my college experience. Furthermore, the people are extremely kind and helpful, and the Christian aura makes you feel at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

An amazing school with amazing students, great and caring professors, and wonderful atmosphere. Even though PBA is a small school, it makes you feel at home in a way. PBA gives us different opportunities big universities don't usually have like being able to connect with professors easily, accessible resources, and support from fellow peers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love PBA. The Campus culture is great, we're close to the beach, the dorms are nice, and the people are fun to be around. There are always activities going on, and it's in the middle of a city without being in the middle of too big of a city, if you know what I mean.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palm Beach Atlantic University is for those who are committed to their education. It is not a party school, it is a place for learning. The education is phenomenal, albeit a bit pricey. The best thing about the school is the atmosphere. Of course there are always some teachers and students you don't want to hang around, but they are the exception rather than the rule. Most of the teachers will do whatever they can to help you if you just show them that you are trying. Most of the employees and professors care about more than just your education, they care about you as a person. The class sizes are small and you get to know people quickly. Located within the city of West Palm Beach, PBA is close enough to the beach and grocery stores for you to walk. The only problem is some of the nearby places are a bit pricey if you head towards Palm Beach. The school is very expensive, but if you are looking for a place that cares about you and can offer you a quality education, this is it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

From what I have seen, it is an inviting school. I do like the interaction I have seen with students and professors. The school is a Christian university, and a lot of the professors implement Christian principles in their teaching. I do appreciate being a student at this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palm Beach Atlantic University is an anomaly in today's Higher Education culture. As a Christian school, the student body generally doesn't drink, do drugs, or party. Rather, most students would agree that a good time consists of quality iced coffee, a bathing suit, and an hour long dip in the ocean. So the students that attend this university are a complete 180 from most college campuses. The academics are interesting. Just like every other college campus, the quality of the teaching staff depends on a professor to professor basis, but overall, the teaching staff is well qualified, friendly, and easily reachable. So overall, the academic experience of PBAU is top notch, but its academic achievements are dragged down by its practical downfalls. The food service sucks, campus wide wifi isn't always reliable, on-campus housing is a bit rundown, and extracurricular activities and clubs are hard to find. If the tuition was that of a typical state school, going to this University would be a bargain, but as it is now, going to this University without a sizable scholarship is kind of a rip off.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The class size is small and the professors are good. It is definitely not a party school (with it's Christian views) and is quite small. The location is amazing, with some dorms even on the water. I really like my school, but I know some people who do not.
