I love palm beach state college. My campus experience was beyond amazing, we are all like family. I have only attended two campuses but they were both amazing. That inlcludes the Belle Glade and Lake Worth campus. The professors are on time and very helpful. The staff goes above and beyond for anything you ask. Its not really a party school but the est part about it is PBCC host many events on campus and have many different varieties of clubs to join so you are never left out. I love my school! Lets Go Panthers.

I am currently enrolled as a sophomore at the Boca Raton campus and have been since 2016. I will be graduating this year to hoprfully transfer to UCF, and the advisors here have made that very easy! This school is a great ,inexpensive state college to complete your AA or AS then transfer to the college of your choice.
Amazing school, I loved going here. After getting almost 50 credits at PBSC, I will certainly recommend this school with all my heart! I had such a life changing experience attending this college.

With PBSC's affordable price, you simply can't beat it. It's 100$ per credit hour. No one is going to find that any where in the state! The nearest university, FAU is quadruple the price!
