What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Palm Beach Atlantic is a Christian Liberal Arts university that focuses in the student's writings and critical thinking. I really like this about PBA because it helps develop our ideas and opinions and not only develops them, but it also helps the student express those ideas and opinions both orally and written. Their Christian foundation also helps with keeping up the relationship between the student and God.
