I literally call Palm Beach State College my second home because of the environment being so homey! I love PBSC because the class sizes are an intimate size of the maximum number of twenty students and most of the professors make time for one-on-one sessions just in case the student need the extra help to understand the concept or method being presented to them. PBSC professors also make time for their students when they are going through something and just need someone to talk to. There are many resources available for PBSC students to use because of the college partnering with many vendors and non-profit organizations. Resources such as housing, food stamps, school clothing store, food pantry, medical services, and much more. Every six months, the health department comes to the college to provide free HIV, blood pressure, and other tests to all PBSC students and the community.

My experience at this college has been extremely positive overall. As far as my specific objectives are concerned, this campus has everything. Yes, a library would be a great addition, but we still have a lot of resources close by/at our fingertips. Plus, the gym has been revamped, the cafeteria is changing vendors over the summer, the parking lot is being updated...lots of good things are happening to improve the facilities for the students. The best thing about this school, however, is the caliber of its teachers. With very few exceptions, all the professors I have encountered here are wonderful human beings who are fully invested in their students and their success. I also like that it's a small campus; so easy to get around! Excellent value for my money.
