So far I love palm beach state college! Like I thought about transferring and going to different school but I just love that its smaller class size, it's not that hard to contact the professor or meet with one. They all things you need to succeed. All round the experience made me go back and get my bachelors degree. One thing I would change is the prices of books. It goes up almost every semester and gets more expensive.
Great if you want to take the cheaper way out! The professors there can be helpful, You just have to know which ones to choose. When dealing with the advisers, make sure you know what questions you are going to ask. They can kind of be misleading. Other than that I would recommend this state college to anyone who cant afford a 4 year university. So pretty much everyone.
