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.

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!
I loved going here! It was stress-free and the faculty wants its students to succeed. I did great here, graduating with a 3.69 GPA. The only downside was that many students did not take the community college seriously. There was a lot of "high school behavior" observed on campus. Such students were only there because their parents were forcing them to.
