I'm an adult nearing 30 and was very pensive to return to school. While researching programs I might be interested in, I stumbled upon PBSC and was delighted to find a program that was completely up my alley! Each class I've enrolled in thus far has been small and intimate allowing one-on-one time with the professor. Most classes have students just as involved in the topics as I am which provides a dynamic learning atmosphere. Questions are always answered and the Professors are great at breaking things down for better understanding. I prefer this method of learning over cramped and over-packed classes.

I am currently earning my AA degree at the Boca Raton campus of Palm Beach State College and I have enjoyed my time here so far. Each of the professors I have had are helpful, kind, and care about the students passing the class. The student life is a little bit lacking behind other colleges because although there are various clubs to join and participate in activities, many students prefer to just go to their classes and leave the campus immediately rather than be actively involved in student life. Moreover, there are various food options but still very little in comparison to other college campuses; plus, the prices are kind of high for many students. But overall, the students there are friendly, the professors are caring and hardworking, and the campus security and safety team take the responsibility of their job seriously and do a great job in securing the students safety.
Palm Beach State College is a great school to attend. They offer many opportunities to their students as far as student activities, work-study programs, hands on academic programs, athletic programs, and more. They are always working very hard to satisfy the needs of their students and work with each student individually to get them on the road to success. As more students have desired to attend the college, the college has continued to expand in different cities in Palm Beach County to have a total of 5 campuses, for the convenience of the students. Each campus is very helpful with guiding students to their proper department or class building and always has a very friendly environment.
