Great school for those looking for a stepping stone in life, education, or career progression. I remember graduating high school with zero ambition and even less money. Fortunately, I had parents that pushed me to get off the couch and pursue a degree before inevitably joining the military. Loved every second of it.
Palomar college is an amazing school. Not only has it provided me with the education I need to further my career in nursing; but also helps me understand what to look for in my career and life in general. The school environment is wonderful and so are the professors, I would highly recommend this school!
I love Palomar College. I feel safe at this school. People are super friendly. I thought because this is a community school I would feel odd and left out because theres a lot of people trying to earn a these different degrees but the truth is everyone there is super friendly. The campus life is serious and the people there are there to learn. I believe it is much different than a 4-year because people are there because they want to, its not something they are doing because they are lost. I also love how affordable it is too. The staff is amazing! They are nothing like high school teachers, they expect you to attend class and learn. They will do their best to help you but you also need to help yourself. If you are a discipline and proactive person Palomar is perfect for you.
Palomar is a community college that feels safe, provides a quality education, and contains a friendly atmosphere. It is a great school for aspiring athletes who are planning on transferring to a four year university. Athletics is a huge part of the school and many opportunities are provided for student athletes. The campus is beautiful and recent construction makes parking readily available for commuters. There is a great variety of food options in the food court and there are many tables around campus to eat lunch, study, etc. Overall, Palomar is a great school to receive a general education and to prepare for future transfer.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Palomar College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to start researching scholarships and grants to help myself and my parents pay for all of the expenses that college entails. I would also inform myself that it is smart to choose a major early on so that I have time to change my mind.
Smart intelectuals who know they are making a difference in their lives and the lives around them by making each classes schedule on time.
Anyone who is looking to attend a community college before transferring to a university should consider attending Palomar College. Also, students seeking vocational training or an associates degree would benefit from the services and courses offered at Palomar. I have found that not only is this a great school to meet transfer and degree requirements, but it is also a great place to explore careers and majors in an effort to find an academic direction.
I consider the worst thing about the school is the library hours. Reason being, it opens at 8:00am and most students who take morning classes, have classes around that time. The library should be open an hour our two earlier so students can get work done that they need finished before class.
I really like the fact that everyone is really laid back and friendly, and all of the teachers are very helpful. I also like the fact that it is in a good area and it is one of the better community colleges.
Honestly, I wish I had known how nice it was. The previous school I had gone to was very busy, with many people everywhere, making it a crowded evironment. Palomar is the opposite. Also i wish i had known about the parking. That situation is problematic, because everything is a little spread out (the parking from the classes).
Anyone should be able to attend this school. Education shouldn't be limited to a certain kind of student, it should be available to everyone and anyone who wants to learn.
Palomar College is a good school with low fees and high educational values.
Palomar college is best known for its amazing transfer program, which enables students there to transfer to UC or CSU campuses and for it's many locations throughout San Diego county.
The best thing about Palomar College is that the teachers are very good, and willing to help people out with different abilities and or dissabillities to try to bring them to a place of success in their college experience. As far as programs are considered, at Palomar college the DSPS is a program that helps all people with dissabilities to give extra time for tests, to help out taking notes, and offer electrical devices as well that will help people succeed in their classes who have dissabilities. The teachers are willing to help students out individually as well beyond expected.
My school, since it is a community college, has very full classes making registration difficult.
A lot of teachers care about the students there. They want to help, if you ask them questions they will help with whatever you have. They want to not only have you learn the material but succeed in life altogether.
They're fun! I am taking psychology classes this semester and I never thought they were so much fun. I like the professors and the way they teach, not only their personalities, but their humanity.
My school has no stereotypes. there are children as young as 7 and adults in their 70's. people pretty much mind their own business.
