Many people might found Palm Beach State College as a good place to start their journey and become who they would like to become in the future. However, I found it to be one of the best opportunities to become a successful student: improving my network, getting involve, and getting a major.

In my opinion, as someone who isn't a participant in student activities, PBSC is a simple college where many students arrive to learn, get a degree, and eventually move on. Nothing here is too well known, sports and the arts are just interests for particular groups and not for the college as a whole. Whereas many universities might feel like being in a loud, vibrant city, Palm Beach State feels like being in a small town: it's mostly calm, and everyone goes about their day.
I enjoy PBSC. As a student who decided to stay home for college it still provides me with a number of opportunities to meet new people and get involved on campus. The class sizes make it super easy to learn and develop a relationship with your professor and all of the staff is super helpful and easy to get into contact with.

If I could go back in time I would tell my high school senior self to make a plan and see it through. I entered college without a direction which has left me on a wayward path. Although every class I have completed and every program I have attempted has left me with invaluable knowledge and countless positive experiences, I regret that I have yet to use these skills in the workforce. I would tell my past self to prepare in advance and listen to my heart in order to persevere and meet my goals against all odds. You never know if you will like something unless you try it. I'am now 24 years old and on my way to a degree in Envirnomental Science. However, If I had known what I wanted to do sooner, I would already be working in my dream career. I have missed out on so much of life's opportunities by being indecisive and unsure of myself. If you want something, go for it.
My classmates seem to be dedicated, this isnt like high school where you had to go. This is now college and it seems everyone has understanded that now they have to get serious. When we have team work in class you can see all the classmates are working together and working hard to get it completed correctly.
The worst thing i consider about my school are the lack of parking spaces. The college already knows that around 1,000 more students are comming to the college so why not expand parking. The books are out the door high and tuition is just as bad; so why not expand parking. Parking creates a huge dilema for students. Being late for class is one and so one..
The class selection isn't great, but many classes are offered.
Though far from home and extremely costly, I have considered Bethune Cookman University to be my only option when it came to pursuing my college degree in dentistry and nursing. However, the Palm Beach State College nursing program is known by many medical practices personally to be far more dexterous in the studies and practicals given to students throughout the required course. Also, their transfer program associated directly with Florida Atlantic University allows me to switch over my nursing courses on to my dentistry courses with ease while FAU is also noted for their succesful doctoral degrees.
I love the fact that my school is like a little family. Everyone knows your name and if they dont they take the initiative to find out your name. My teachers know exactly who i am and we have direct contact where they have one on one time with you to answer any questions you may have.
the begining of my on going education
The awake person should attend this school. As long as one eye can sense a bit of light.
The kind of person that should not attend this school, I would have to say would be a lazy, self detrimental, non reliable, non responsible person, that aspires to be nothing more than a wasted mass in society. Someone who hasn't any goals or abbitions to become anything greater than a carbon form wasting oxygen; you have to be motivated and wanting more for yourself and family in life. I recommend that the person has high priority to become something great, to become a productive member of society, instead of a burdon on themselves and others around them.
Palm Beach Communtiy College is best known for making all of it's campus enviromental friendly by going "green".
Palm Beach State College has the tendency to cover all course fees whether you qualify for financial aid or not up until the end of the course when they abruptly introduce the bill. I have learned that students need to visit the financial aid office every course to really know if they are being covered by financial aid because the computer will not inform the student on the specific issues financial aid is having unless it is pertaining to documents missing.
That it is so close to my house.
That it is easier than a four year school is the biggest stereotype. This is not true. PBSC is o par with all Florida four year schools, so being easier is not correct.
i do not know
The best thing about this school is the location. I only live 15 minutes from the Palm Beach Gardens campus and the campus is not too big so I feel comfortable while there.
My favorite classes so far has been my writing classes to my surprise. I had a wonderful teacher who was so helpful and highly accessible. Most classes there is student participation but some of them are lecture based.
wide and very comfortable.the type of the class that you can learn easily
