Am enjoying being here
I love being at Polk. The atmosphere is just wonderful. Most of the students are very friendly.
Bang for the buck

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot it PSC. I am actually learning things that i should learned in high school. The teachers are very patient. I recommend this school.
Am enjoying being here
I like the school and all. but everybody is doing something. I don't really have friends. I am pretty much by myself, but then again I am not a bubbly person that just go up to people. Other than that PSC is a enjoyable place.
Bang for the buck
If you are a Florida resident you will save a lot of money. Financial Aid is great, so please sign up for it on the first of every January. It will help you save from money. Trust me.

In three sentences
Polk State is supportive and full of dedicated professionals, both student and teacher.
Tips for prospective students
If you have a question, a problem, or just want some advice on your major or career, then ask! The faculty is always happy to lend a helping hand on every campus.
Academic Rigor
All the professors may not have doctorates, but they really do love the subjects they teach, not to mention their dedication to the students. Most of the teachers here want you to succeed and will do whatever the can to facilitate that if you're willing to put in the work. Every bunch has it's bad apples, bu these are few and far between.
Food and Dining
About what you would expect from a school lunch: nothing to write home about, but it's pretty good.
What to do for fun
Going to the movies, visiting farmers markets, paintball, and a large selection of restaurants. That's just the Lake Wales and Winter Haven campuses. Lakeland is full of things to do, from museums to murder mystery dinner theater.
Bang for the buck
Cost efficient and high quality; you couldn't ask for more.

I have enjoyed nearly every course. Most of the professors or interested in their students success.

The Lakeland campus for PSC hosts a varied age range of students; however the majority of students are high school juniors and seniors, college freshman and soon-to-be program graduates. Recent remodeling and additions to the campus buildings have improved the campus facilities. This campus is also relatively small, keeping all buildings within walking distance. The grounds are well maintained as well as the interiors of all facilities. Tutors are included in your tuition, so you do not pay extra out-of-pocket expenses to utilize their services. The student activities board is very active and the athletic department is ranked nationally.
Bang for the buck
Public high school students who enroll in the collegiate high school receive full tuition for classes and course materials from the college. Dual-enrolled high school students receive full class tuition but are expected to pay for course materials. The latter is also only allowed to apply for 9 credit hours per semester, as they are expected to make up the rest of their high school credits (per semester) through their high school of choice, be it public or home school affiliated.
Tips for prospective students
I suggest researching and investigating your career interests. As a high school graduate be ready to declare your major shortly after your first semester so that you don't spend wasted time and money on credits that your degree, combined with the college grad. requirements and possible university applications, won't count.
Great for these types of students
High school attendees, college freshmen who seek an A.A. or A.S. as their highest level of education but want to feed right into a program, and students who seek preparation for a university.
