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!
My experience with Palm Beach State College is interesting because I had many different types of professors. Some professors where amazing because they were able to explain the lesson clearly and they can answer your questions. Whereas, other professors were not so good. Since, I was able to experience different types of professors I became more aware that I need to find other resources to benefit myself. Those resources were the tutors in student learning, other classmates, and going to the library. The most important factor I learned from Palm Beach State College was the importance of communication with your classmates. When you are communicating with your fellow student you will be able to form study group; therefore, you will have a better understanding about the lesson that being taught in class. The only thing I would like to see change is that some professors should retire because they are old, and sometime they seem confuse in class.
