Review Polk State College
Polk State College is a college that has professors that really care about your academics and try to help you the best that they can. The professors are very welcoming and they allow you to stay after class for some time and ask questions. The environment is clean and the natural surroundings are very calming amidst some stressful college homework. However, Polk State College could improve the friendliness of the staff that works in their enrollment offices because I have experienced some situations where they are very uncooperative to help. I have felt as if they have something better to do and I believe every student should leave feeling more encouraged.
I love that they offer online classes to anyone in the state and out of state. They have great classes and wonderful professors! Their classes, website, and registration is organized and easy to access. Being a Dual Enrolled student at this college is a great experience and I'm glad I started my college education here!
Polk State College has been pretty consistent and great so far, as far as my experience goes. Great resources, helpful counselors and career counselor, and great professors. Only complaint worth mentioning is one particular female counselor who was very vague in information and does not offer the help the other counselors do, so she sent me to the career counselor, who was immensely more helpful than she was. Other than that, it has great and stimulating academics and helpful staff all around.
