Overall Rating

My overall experience at Palm Beach State College (PBSC) was positive. I was able to further my education whilst still having time for a job or two. I love how eco friendly and culturally aware the school is. One of the most memorable aspects for me is that PBSC helped me discover what career direction I wanted to pursue. When I began attending college I didn't know what major I was going to declare or what I was going to do with my life. PBSC, however, often hold career discussion panels, and also lectures by notable speakers. Thanks to the combination of those two things I learned a lot about myself. I found out what careers I just wasn't cut out for and which ones were a step away from becoming full fledged passions. This in turn, made it easier for me to select classes based on my interests to see if I was truly compatible with those areas of study. On top of that, I utilized the online options available from the campus career center which allowed me to see what career options were available based on those courses and even what universities would further me even more. Palm Beach State College was my springboard from which I discovered endless possibilities. They taught me everything about higher education that my high school didn't inform me of. Essentially, there's a place for everyone. Even if you don't fit the mold.
