I am a freshman in college about to complete my first year and I can't even began to explain how helpful Palo Alto College has been. From the staff, my professors, the bookstore keeper, and even the cafeteria ladies! They make the experience and transition so much smoother! I personally think this id the BEST Alamos College. Help is always available, to those who seek it. Love the computer labs, library, and tutoring rooms that are available.
Review Palo Alto College
So far I love the school! The campus is so beautiful and there are so many places to get in some study time or to just hang out with friends. I love the friendly environment and the helpful staff. My favorite area of the school is the library area, but sometimes it does get to full and the study rooms are always occupied each time I go. Other than that the library is the best area.
Teachers , admissions , bursurs office advisors including students.. are all helpful assets. Now all is do to ones goal as a student either you set your mind to accomplish or be sidetracked easily with personal life. All in all, all metioned are great ways to advance to getting your degree. They all are helpful tools . I have no complaints I have attended Palo Alto College since 2009 . My favorite is when teachers care about a students success when it comes to not understanding a section of any objectives being taught throughout the semester. Also fiesta in San Antonio is held their for pac fest events during fiesta season. Very fun!
