Palomar College Reviews
Palomar College is a vibrant community college located in San Marcos, CA. This awarded school is one of the best community colleges in the country! There are so many resources offered at this school to help students of all kinds, whether you are looking to become a nurse, get your AA, or even transfer to a four-year. While there are a few places to eat on campus and to explore, the community is located in the heart of the city and has easy access to public transportation. The teachers here, for the most part, are knowledgeable and truly want to see the students succeed. This is a great place to begin your college journey!
First of all, counseling is great about helping out. Make sure you make an appointment! Sencodly, My professor Ronald Smith didn't sugar coat anything. He was straight forward and made sure that we were there to succeed. The campus is always clean even though construction is right next door. The new classrooms are really nice and everyone is friendly.
I enjoyed my professors and classes. I had a few issues with one of the ladies in the office of the Escondido campus, but everyone else was delightful. The Escondido lacks a college feel, as it is just a cluster of buildings however they offer plenty of classes. The professors all seemed genuinely interested in helping the students succeed. The main campus is nice but currently under construction, so parking can be a bit of a struggle. I had some issues with book buy back which was frustrating, but the bookstore staff were helpful and efficient. Overall, I highly recommend this school to help get general ed requirements to be able to transfer to a 4 year school.
