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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Palomar is not bad, I would even say it's pretty good. all the teachers I had were good, but too be fair I only go with the top rated teacher in whatever class I chose to take. the food not bad but it's not great either but I had worse. The teachers in the NS building are fed up with laptop so they are banned.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really loved my time at Palomar. All of the professors that I had are extremely good at their jobs and are highly successful in their own fields. And better yet, they were just good people. Very down-to-earth, approachable, supportive, kind, and interesting to talk to. A chunk of the campus has been renovated relatively recently, so that's also nice. My only complaint is that they haven't gotten around to my department (the art department building) yet. But the building matters less than the content of the program, and that's where the art department shines. Their equipment is all up-to-date and high quality, the critiques are extremely informative, and there are a lot disciplines to explore. If you're willing to put in the work to develop your skills as an artist, this program will elevate you. Overall, a great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. They have many resources that help me all the time. I found out I had a learning disability from them testing me. With knowing and their help I feel more confident in classes. There is help whoever you need it. I do wish they would advertise or tell students so they get help too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good initial institution for those transitioning from high-school to college, but it's less than desirable for the gifted student or the student in honor academics or high level academic achievements like mathematical competitions and ect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel Palomar College is a great Community College to get your GED, especially as a STEM major. Our Physics program is hard but helps push students to the limits. I have some bad professors, but I’ve also had some great professors. There is a variety of people across campus and it makes me feel safe to be in such a diverse environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good community college for those pursuing STEM majors. Whereas you may not stumble upon very much intellectual opportunities, Palomar's prices and academic discounts or financial waiving when available help a student trying to obtain an affordable education climb towards their goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I find myself feeling very comfortable on campus and welcomed by other students and the staff. Every professor I’ve come in contact with have office hours readily available, which makes it very encouraging to seek help when needed. Class sizes are small in size which also provides for an intimate and calm environment.
