The building itself is fairly confusing to navigate, but the many signs all over allow you to regain your place quickly. Parkland's facilities are professional, clean, and open to students when need be. The professors are engaged and obviously care a lot about their students. Since the class sizes are very small for a college (not more than 25 people per class) the professors are able to address problems one-on-one and build connections with everyone in the classroom. There are SO MANY course to choose from and the advisers help students plan out exactly what they need for the semester and line up credits easily! Overall, a wonderful school once you figure out the layout!

I love how helpful they are with non-traditional students like myself! Adults enrolling later in life and openly welcomed and guided appropriately. If I could change anything, it would be to offer more evening classes.
So far, my time at Parkland has been a wonderful experience. Last year, as a freshman in college, I was a little nervous about my transition to Parkland, but I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to adjust and feel like I belonged. All of the instructors I have had have been helpful, outgoing, enthusiastic, and always willing to help anyone in need. Parkland offers a large variety of classes to choose from that will fit everyone’s interests and focus of study. They also have various clubs and activities that students can be apart of, which I have noticed are great learning experiences, and ways to meet new people.
