    I honestly love Palm Beach State College. Many people like to down play it just because it is a State College, but pbsc is more than that to me and for many others . Pbsc is a sense of security and freedom thanks to the great teachers always trying to help . The learning experience here really is a bang for you buck it's , I attend this school and would have it any other way .

    this is a great school overall, and i'm glad i came here. tuition is very reasonable and worth it. i attended the boca raton campus, so i can only speak for that one. the only con about the campus is that it's reeeally small and i would usually get really bored in between classes because there's no cool places to visit, nor are there any good, peaceful places to just sit back and relax. even the computer lab gets crowded and noisy at primetime. so if you have a large time-gap between your classes, you'd might as well go somewhere else.
