Overall

Overall I think that Palomar College is a great community college. I like how even though a community college there are still plenty of extracurricular activities available for the students to get involved with. I especially like that there is a Christian club available as well. The campus is large enough yet not so much that it is overwhelming. For prospective students, I would say if they are definitely going to attend a community college in the southern California area, then Palomar is the one to seriously consider.

Academics

While there are many classes to choose from, I am currently taking four. Depending on the person, some classes are more difficult than others of course. The workload is a lot, therefore, one must really balance their priorities. Just because Palomar is a community college, does not mean that the classes are easier. This is not the case. As mentioned, these classes are a lot of work. Whatever you put into it, is what you will get out of it. All of my classes are about averaged size. For the most part, the professors are very friendly and easy going, but there may be one or two that has a few ground rules that may make you feel like less than an adult. I don't necessarily agree with the a particular "rule" per say, but I do need the credits from the class, so of course I abide.

Campus Facilities & Safety

I believe the atmosphere of the campus is great. There are plenty of areas to sit and work on studies while waiting for that next class or while eating lunch. There is a language lab as well as a huge computer lab in the library to utilize as well. Presently there is a lot of construction taking place, but the students and staff seem to work around it without any hesitations. There is plenty of student parking available so long as you don't mind which parking lot you may have to park in depending on the time of day you arrive. I've never had any concerns for my safety while on the campus and I have a class that ends in the evening hours. Although I've never personally seen campus police patrolling the area, I know they are there. Don't forget to purchase/display a parking pass, as a ticket costs as much as the pass does. A car parked next to me forgot to display theirs and received a ticket for $40.
