Polk State College Reviews
Polk state college is a friendly college that will assist you in getting the degree you desire. The college will never leave their students feeling lost. The school guides their students to achieve their goals and assist them on moving forward in life. They also have events to where any student is allowed to join and have fun. The college is enjoyable and has great professors to help learn the required classes the students need to take. Its a great school and its cheap too!
I've been attending classes through Polk State College since I was a Dual-Enrolled Sophomore in high school. After graduating high school, I was able to enroll in college utilizing a scholarship to attend Polk State College awarded to me when I was in fifth grade. Between dual-enrollment classes, online classes, hybrid classes, and in-person classes, Polk State College offers several different outlets for students of all ages to attend classes and further their education. With great teachers and student community, Polk State College is a great location for all local students to attend.
My overall experience with Polk State College has been amazing. You have one-on-one time with professors and plenty of activities and events to go around. There's always been trouble with wifi, however, and that is something that won't be fixed for a long time, if at all, due to lack of efficient funding going towards community colleges. The food at Metz cafe is terrible; There are more junk food options than clean and healthy options and the cafe closes at 2:30 pm, which is unfortunate for students who may rely on it for late lunch or dinner. The school is small, and unless you're taking nursing classes, classrooms tend to be around 20-22 students. The most I've ever been seated with was 40, but even at that amount, I was still able to receive one on one time with my professor. Because this is a community college, there is not "party" scene, dorms, or return on investment.
