Parkland College Reviews
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.
I love Parkland! It is very affordable, lots of one on one help from all the staff, close to lots of different food places, and activities. It is a great choice for starting off your college career and is an awesome way to get connected and form relationships that will help you with your future!
