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.
Review Palm Beach State College
Palm Beach State College is very nice, helpful, and understanding. The professors know you by your name and not a number. The classes are not very big, which makes it even better. Students get a lot of help. The college has tutoring for any subject. The tutors are very nice and helpful. Students can even schedule private tutoring if they want, no extra charge. The cafeteria could use more options than just Dunkin Donuts and school food, but overall its not a big deal. What is a big deal is parking; theirs nowhere to park.

My overall experience at PBSC has been phenomenal; I basically live in the "Math Lab" (tutoring). The tutors are very smart and easy to understand. My professors are very caring. I would recommend PBSC to any student who is looking for a friendly, diverse, and helpful college.

GO PANTHERS!
The variety of campuses offers a diverse student body. The teachers are a mix of truly interesting and invested professors, and people who truly couldn't care less about what they're talking about. Rate my professor really helped me going through this college, and the professors I chose really helped my academic career. Activities are abounded this college, the hardest part is getting the students involved, but if you go it's fun. The people running the activities really try and make a difference in the students lives. The faculty truly seems to care, especially at the Belle Glade campus.
