Will learn a lot
I will attend palo alto this fall and i am already going to attend a math course next week. This course is meant to help my math skills for the accuplacer and i am glad this college has this math summer session because its useful for anybody who wants to improve their skills in math.
Will enjoy being here
I only been to student orientation and i got to see how nice the college looks from the inside and out. The people there are friendly and the staff is very patient and helpful.
Bang for the buck
Oh yea and this college is very affordable. I am getting help from financial aid and paying for tuition is not as bad as paying for a four year university.
Tips for prospective students
When you make your schedule consider the time and how you are gonna get from one class to another.
Great for these types of students
Its a great choice of college if you want to get started on your studies and then transfer to a four year college. You can transfer all your credits easily to the university of choice within the state.

Tips for prospective students
Students should defenetely know what classes they want to take so that their time and money is not wasted.
Students should not be shy it is important to ask questions so that the student is informed.
A very important tip is to always check your student account called ACES it has the answers to most of your questions.
Academic Rigor
This school provides great education at a bargain price. There are many classes. The most difficult classes are the science classes but that also means they are the best.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms at the college.
Food and Dining
The food is awesome especially the pizza. There are also vending machines everywhere so it's really good to have some extra cash.
What to do for fun
There are a lot of things to do for fun. The gym is free for students. There are also a lot of clubs for all types of people.
Bang for the buck
Palo Alto College has very reasonable prizes for great classes. You will definitely get your moneys worth.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Palo Alto College offers their own version of fiesta. Fiesta occurs in April at downtown San Antonio. It is called the PAC Fest it is very fun and much cheaper than actually going down town and paying an arm and a leg for small entertainment.
Great for these types of students
Palo Alto College is great for anybody. Your race, gender, sex preference, and economic background does not matter. The only thing the college cares about is your desire to better yourself and learn.
Clubs and Activities
There are plenty of clubs. The most popular clubs are the honor society, anime and mariachi clubs. It definitely benefits the student to join a club because it helps get scholarships and meet different people.
Greek Life
I do not know of any fraternities in the college just clubs.
Campus Safety
The safety is outstanding. There are plenty of officers patrolling the college during classes and after classes are over. It is a good feeling to know you will not have to look over your shoulder.

Am learning a lot
The professors here at Palo Alto are always willing to help you. Also, the Learning Centers provide additional help in case you need just a little extra studying!
Am enjoying being here
The atmosphere is relaxed. The student center almost always has an event or two going on for the students' benefits. Whether a concert, a live speaker, or even small shopping booths, something is always happening.
Great for these types of students
Want to get a headstart on their education without having to pay university price, or who want to go back to college after a hiatus.
