This is literally the WORST college I haveQuite BrightAnthropology
This is literally the WORST college I have ever been enrolled in. While my home university is a New York State college, I have taken courses at five other colleges and I have never experienced such rude, uncaring, and flat out stupid university staff that works at Palm Beach State. I have dealt with some serious bullshit from other colleges but this one take the cake. If you call the registrar office to ask a simple question, be prepared to get transferred to 3 different offices who will all say, "I don't know how to help you, you should speak to someone in the registrar office." No one knows what they're doing. You should also be prepared for an academic advisor to tell you that you only have 2 courses left to graduate with an Associates degree, but when you complete those courses another academic advisor will tell you that you still need 3 more courses to graduate. On top of all this, the professors are notoriously bad and don't actually care about their students. DO NOT GO TO THIS COLLEGE!

This is th worst school in florida toAverageCriminal
This is th worst school in florida to attend. The ppl in guidance, financial aid, admissions are old and slow, or young and lazy. They do not provide any important informatio until after the damage has been done. Nobody wants to do their job , they just sen dyou from department to department.They never pick up the phone or return phone calls.This school is for a student who lives at home with their parents and their entire life is palm beach state college. The worst ever!

I came to this school thinking it wouldAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
I came to this school thinking it would be a great experience. Dont get me wrong some of the time i have been there i have had great professors, but my first semester i had the most rude, racial, sexist teacher i have ever met, to this day i do not know how he has kept his job. I chose this school because the courses are the same as everywhere else but the price for the classes are better. Well now i am thinking it was a mistake. I have had professors who have failed me because they were too lazy and unwilling to help. Wouldnt return emails and not approachable because of their attitudes. I wouldnt tell someone not to go there, but to make sure you know everything you can about the professors you take because they can seem nicer then they really are. I am having to take classes over again at an alot higher price all because no one was willing to help.....
