Palo Alto College Reviews

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!
Review Your College
What I enjoy about Palo Alto College is that there is a lot of diversity and everyone that works on campus will do everything they can to help you succeed. There are always some form of events going on while your on campus, so they encourage you to be involved and to get to know some people around you. They are continuing to expand what they offer on campus to help everyone find a major that best suits them. All the staff members are superb and very kind, and the students are always welcoming. Teachers work hard to make sure you understand every lesson, and if not they are willing to go into detail with you. Palo Alto is also very involved with the local area and keeps you up to date on all new events.
I absolutely love this college. I love that the teachers are more one on one with the students. The campus is super friendly and is very productive! Everyone is always willing to help and all of the aid that is provided is outstanding. The classes are not too huge . They are small in the range of 20-30 students which is ideal for me. I am currently a freshman and I am looking for ward to these 2 years.
