4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its great because of the location, teachers, and cost.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like many community college students I sometimes feel I should have pushed a little harder to start at the university level. But, realistically, introductory level classes are more similar than different between different schools. With the right effort and attitude anyone can get a great start here.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is okay. I know I could enjoy another school so much more but I just don't have the means to do so. While I'm here I'm trying my best to work hard and enjoy what I am doing and where I'm at. It's very diverse and a couple of the teachers are helpful and most are very knowledgeable within their subject. It can be challenging academically but if you put in effort you will succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is big but easily accessible and the programs I'm in help with child care and books for my classes. They also are very quick to help find solutions to my issues when they arise.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nice campus and excellent professors although the staff in the offices are not very helpful or friendly unfortunately.

Overall Experience: I hate palomar so much. Community college is not what I should have done. Nobody cares about meeting new people, they go to school for class then leave. Parking is horrible can take 30 minutes some days to find a spot.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers so far have ranged from best teacher I've ever had to I'm never showing up to this class again. Overall I have enjoyed my teachers and because of their divers backgrounds and levels of education it has made it all the more interesting. Being on campus for the sake of just taking classes can be effective in that there's not many distractions, but you can miss out on making friends that can help you with your goals. That's why I'm really glad I joined the wrestling team. It made it easier to make friend, helped with classes, transportation, and a whole lot of other stuff. It's a group that's focused on passing classes and if possible getting a scholarship to pay for classes at the next level through their training. I'm really glad I went to Palomar because it's helped me better myself with the knowledge I've received from my classes and decide what I want to do in five years. Worst experience so far is parking as a freshman on the first day other than that I've enjoyed the experience.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The campus is very nice and the teachers are knowledgable. As for the councillors I have had much help but others have had a difficult time getting advice from their counselor so be prepared and it is fairly easy to find clubs to participate in.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The counselors here try their hardest to keep you at the school for way longer than two years, I have never had a positive experience with any of them. The campus and teachers however are great, and the students nave Palomar seem like weird highschool.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't have chosen Palomar College because I would have been at a university.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Palomar is one of the best community colleges in the San Diego are. It has a beautiful campus and there are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved. There is also plenty of resources for students that need a little bit of extra help in their classes. There are also tutors for most of the subjects, so it's pretty easy to find help.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Going to community college was never my intention, but going here was definitely a huge ego check for me. Going here I have come to observe and learn that the social life here is very polar. Students here either have a goal to transfer and are very dedicated to their academics, then are the others who are still figuring out what they want to do. It was hard to find people in my similar major willing to create social ties and network with, because many of us were dedicated to our work. Despite this, Palomar has a great science department and they are very committed and passionate about teaching their student.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it! When I first graduated high school, I did not take school as serious. I was confused on the career path I wanted. After having children, and being almost a 10 year high school graduate with NO degree, I was determined to go back to school. I need a succefull career, and Palomar Community college has had a flexible schedule and a wide range of online courses to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The staffs are really helpful, especially the counselors at Palomar College. The campus is really beautiful and clean. I can't wait to here for fall. I'm so excited!!!

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: School is nice. Very nice campus and new facilities. Biggest down side is very impacted and it's very hard to get the classes you need/want to take to fit into your schedule

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What I love about my school is that the professors really care about their students succeeding. They will help you until you can get the best grade you can, whether you sign up for an appointment with them or just after class. They truly believe in us!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like it. The teachers I've taken from are mostly pretty good.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The only drawback is that some of the classes I'd like to take aren't available when I'm available to take them. One of the drawbacks to being a single parent I guess. But online classes are an option.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm excited to use my newfound knowledge in my new career

5 College Senior

Student Body: Everyone's a mix of culture, ages, & lifestyles but we're all working towards a common goal & help each other out. I really like that about this campus.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's best to not procrastinate on applying. Otherwise you're stuck waiting in lines with everyone who has waited until the last minute. All of the information regarding the dates financial aids are available to apply for is on the website.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I enjoy learning about Art, I'm also a business Marketing major, I'm going for 2 degrees.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are very good & helpful. Also understanding & enthusiastic about what they teach.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: As a single parent, I have found so much help, programs for single parents, grants, everyone is so nice & supportive of my decision to go to college. Also I enjoy the academic, personal & time management counselors who are there to help me out.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm a biology major that has just completed my first year, all of my general education and will be starting work on major preparation in the Fall. The amount of workload varies from class to class and teacher to teacher. I have been lucky enough to only have excellent teachers so I can't complain about anything. I haven't found any internship (or research opportunities, something I'm interested in) opportunities in my field but the college offers a lot of student-employment positions that go largely unfilled.
