    Polk State College is a great stepping stone in the college experience but it should not be your final destination in terms of education. Classes are a hit or miss heavily depending on the instructor and the department. There are multiple professors that have poor reviews on and instead of improving their course based on that and the "anonymous" college feedback system, scoff at it. The Lakeland campus will have you waiting hours at Guidance / Admissions. But putting all of that aside, PSC has a great location, offers a ton of different courses at each campus, and generally has a positive atmosphere.

    the teachers here are pretty great for the most part but the administration is horrible. bad attitude and they don't answer the phone to help you. if they do answer the phone, expect someone imcompetent to help you on the other end. i applied for a student loan way earlier than expected and i still haven't received one. i called and called and i had one person from polk tell me that i will be getting it in a week. nearly a month goes by and i still don't have it. i call again and the next person tells me the loan hasn't even been processed!? talk about a waste of time and energy on both ends. such impotence with the staff pool, it just baffles me. their was also one instance where the advisor told me i needed to take the classes for my major to get into a specific program when in fact i didn't.... money hungry college or just imcoptence? i wouldn't wish for my worst enemy to go through what i went through with psc administration. the teachers are great on the other hand.

    The Campus is a fairly large size and has a easy to navigate and attractive layout with plenty of greenery. It is conveniently located in Winter Haven, near multiple food establishments, convenience stores, places of worship, etc., and has many necessities on campus as well, such as a cafeteria, library, multiple art rooms, media center, etc.. All of the students and professors I met while visiting were friendly and welcoming.

    Polk State College has always been there for me no matter what I change my major to. Their professors are phenomenal, facilities very close to my house, and their amount of degrees continues to increase over the years.

    Most courses are easy, although there are some professors who are rude or hardcore. Admissions office is hardly helpful.
