I would tell myself not to screw around, to stay focused and to take classes that led to what I wanted my career to be. I would say study hard and try my best at getting good grades in all my classes. Also I would tell myself to take AP classes or to join dualenrolment in a college in order to get an early start on my college credits and a chance to earn my degree faster. I also would suggest to consider collegeic highschool as well to get a jump start on my future education. Also I would tell myself to save my money because I will need it for books, classes, tuition, and school supplies which can get expensive. It helps to have a job as well in order to keep some money rolling in the account no matter how little it pays or how miserable it is. All extra caricular activities helps as well, they keep you saine and relaxed as well as more focused in your down time. And finally never give up, believe in yourself and always do your best.
It is an affordable college experience, while maintaining a family life.
sorry I really don't know...
The worst thing about my school is that during my attendence the school changed from being a Community College to Four year state college. This changed some of the required classes which put some of us students behind, this consequently makes the process of working up to graduating a little longer. But other than that I love this school.
The most frustrating thing about my current school is the need to remodel the campus. Currently there is a portable in the parking lot which took the place of the cafeteria for the year. Of which does not have internet and it defeats the purpose of getting anything to eat and being able to get work done. The surrounding area is grim to cellphone coverage so as much as a nesesity the internet is I find it to be a constant struggle when at school.
It is small and quaint
The teachers are really great. The ones I have had I have been extremely grateful and lucky to have had them.
The atmosphere is great and there is a good outreach to draw students in. The campus is easy to get around and also has USF on campus as well. They offer a wide variety of career choices.
I wish i would have know more about the dual enrollment programs that polk state college offers to everyone.
If you're looking for the big university life, PSC is not for you. If you prefer large lecture like classes, PSC isn't for you.
they know how to have fun.
i didnt go too off course with what i thought i wanted but its was very diverse
Mainly soccer games or chillin doing SAB or SALO events
Great school to decide what you wanna do in life!
we have a lot of people that either want to become a nurse or use the school to get an AA. It does have a lot else to offer including engineering, criminal justice, physical therapy assissting, music, etc
