What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is an excellent school to start your college journey at. Helpful people, clean campus, and some very good teachers. There are several campus clubs/teams to join if looking for a community, but overall it is not the place to go if you're looking for a full on "college experience".

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my time here. I think the teachers are great if you pick the right one for your learning style and they really are helpful in the counseling department. I always felt that I could turn to teachers and ask for help when I needed it as well as having counselors who really helped me get on the path toward transferring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palomar College is a great school. It is the local community college in San Marcos, California, and is very accessible to the surrounding communities. Anyone who wants to earn a degree, or simply take a few classes, is able to attend at a very affordable price, and they still provide many opportunities for those who are in situations that would normally prevent them from going to college. This is especially important since it's surrounded by both low and high income communities. The campus itself is beautiful, and the buildings and facilities are a very good quality. Palomar also has a lot of great professors that are very knowledgeable about their field, and are often available to help students succeed in their studies. Palomar College is a great school, whether as the start of a college career or at any point in life, and I'm glad for the time that I've been able to attend this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Palomar college is a really great community college. I feel very safe when walking on campus. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Although the college is lacking a bit in the food court and language department. They cut back on the foreign language department.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A good community college that will help you on your way to transferring to a University or any other goals you may have. Professors are knowledgable about their field and often willing to stay after class if you need to speak with them for any reason.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great community college. There is a good amount of clubs and sports to join but you can't find them unless you ask for them. The school's library is really nice along with the new buildings they've added throughout the years. It's easy for commuters to attend this college since they have three other campuses besides their main one. I have yet to encounter a bad professor at this college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great facility with numerous clubs and classes on campus with some very bright, kind, and helpful teachers & faculty. I think all of the new buildings that are being made on campus are great additions, that are to the students benefit for the reason that they have more updated spaces and more cutting edge technology being provided.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would rate this college pretty good overall. Student services was never a bad experience and staffed with people that are really friendly and helpful. The college has been growing substantially over the last couple of years. Classes fill up fast due to the high enrollment rates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Palomar College. The professors I've had have spanned the spectrum from very easy going to ball busting difficult. It's best to check their rating and reviews on RateMyProfessor.com before signing up for a class. I've formed lasting friendships with both faculty and students and will always love this campus for its diversity and inclusivity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have to admit, I was a bit wary of attending a community college after attending such an academically competitive high school. Going to a community college was frowned upon by my high school classmates, where more students from Del Norte High School would go off to attend an Ivy League than they would community college. I did not know what to expect on my first day of community college, or any college for that matter. Now that I just finished my first year at Palomar, I couldn't be happier. I am so happy that I attended Palomar College to get my associates degree. Looking back, it's hard for me to comprehend that some people choose to spend thousands of dollars at a university when they could go here instead. Palomar college is affordable (free for first year students) and you get the same education- or even better than at a university. All professors are extremely knowledgable on the subjects they teach. All professors have at least a MA but most have a PhD. The student life is extremely diverse, and it seems to represent society better than a university. I have met middle schoolers, ex-convicts, single mothers, and the average 18 year old. But everyone attends Palomar for the same reason. Palomar College is a great school and anyone looking to get a higher education should go here!
