4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy this school because of the environment and the people I interact with. They have so much spirit and creativity that there is never a dull moment during our class sessions. This school is all about engaging with the subjects and teachers to maintain our academic record. It should be smooth sailing because the teachers are very interested in our academic life. I would choose my school again because of the aura of good feelings that come with the people and the subjects that we learn.

Overall Experience: My experience at Palo Alto University has gone well so far. It is easy to get a hold of the program director for any of my concerns. The program director also visits us monthly for lunch to talk about our classes and professor performance. She calls the lunch "Dine and Dish".

Diversity: My program is set up in a cohort style. I have class with the same 20 people everyday. Many students are international students and some student live an hour away from campus.

Academics: The academics offered at Palo Alto University is given in a scholarly way. For the registration process, the student just has to write his or her personal information and give a brief paragraph of future goals are. The work that has to be done through the quarter is somewhat hard and easy at the same time. Psychology is not an easy major.

3 College Junior

Technology: The usefulness of campus computers are not very helpful, it's easier to bring your own laptop to class.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining has a lot of healthy and different options for any taste.

2 College Junior

Parking: The size of each parking spot says compact, but they are extremely small, that causes many accidents that could have been avoided if there were bigger spots for cars.

3 College Junior

Weather: Most of the time, the weather is nice and warm but it does have some rainy days. It does not effect me too much.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They have good information, but the process is very slow.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are plenty of off campus places to eat and shop outside of school. Our school doesn't provide on campus housing, but when we want to grab frozen yogurt or Indian food, we have the access to it.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining options are great! We have a huge menu from ethnic food (chinese, mexican, italian) to American sandwiches and pizza. There is plenty of space to sit in the campus cafeteria and there is even outdoor tables to enjoy the beautiful weather. The prices are reasonable for college students.

Campus Quality: it's lacking a lot. I think it needs more maps, and more things to do.

Greek Life: I don't think there is a greek anything in this school.

2 College Senior

Athletics: I give them a C due to hearing a lot of the sports are being dropped an you don't really hear about the sports.

Health & Safety: The health insurance program for students is improving, but if you have a family, forget it.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is non-exist, unless were in a frat or sorority prior in undergrad. PAU is a small professional psychology school and is extremely limited in the availability of social clubs.

Transportation: Drive or Carpool Is the Way – Driving yourself or carpooling is the way to go. There is limited to basically no public transportation to get up to campus. There are plenty of parking spaces though. Some who live further may take the train and ride their bike up to campus which is another option.
