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.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have had wonderful professors, a lot of the adjuncts also teach at the nearby universities and other community colleges and most of them seemed to have obtained their education from around her as well. Many of my teachers studied at UC San Diego and continue to teach there so I feel I'm getting an equivalent education, I don't see any reason why these professors would give less work than the university.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Lower level classes have a wide array of availability and scheduling options. However, as you get into higher-level classes, it because much more difficult to schedule classes, especially when there are only one or two sections of a class (such as organic chemistry). The lack of divers sections in these higher classes may ruin my chances at getting into the four year institutions I want to get into.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The environment has helped me focus on my studies. I still live at home and have a few friends that don't go to this school so my personal and academic life are physically and figuratively separated from one another. I went to community college because I was anxious about applying to four-year universities in high school. On the other hand, if I had applied to universities as a freshman I would not have decided on the career goal I now have in mind, which has made me very happy.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are up to 60 people but this hasn't prevented me from feeling important to my professors. I feel like I have learned a lot and know that I retain information much better because of them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a career services center open year-round and the college holds occasional career fairs. I haven't been to the center nor to career events and am not sure about alumni involvement. Again, I haven't had the necessity to take advantage of these services.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Application for financial aid is easy, just fill out the FAFSA early and submit documents to the financial aid office. The people working at the financial aid office seem irritated that you have to ask them a question. My suggestion would be to try and find your answers online first (which, unfortunately, is extremely difficult) before asking them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The athletic buildings are definitely out-dated and should be better maintained. I understand that the college has plans to construct a new library, this is good because the old one has been around for a long time. I'm unaware of any campus activities and don't participate in any so I have no comment about this. There are free tutor services in multiple locations and many support programs available to students that require it. Generally, I think it is a good-looking campus. It has plenty of free and open space which makes it pleasant to walk through between classes.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Classes are pretty flexible. I've had to put together a kind of crazy schedule to get all the classes I want with the professors I want, but that's because I'm picky about my teachers.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: If you make sure to get the good professors, they're great. The courses are pretty good, and classes aren't too large, 30-40 people at most, from most of my experiences.

3 College Student

Online Courses: I don't love the online classes at Palomar, but I think they're ok. They're just not really for me. You have very little interaction with your professor or with the other students, and I wish there was more of that.

3 College Student

Student Body: I have very little social interaction with the other students outside of class, but based on my limited experiences with them, I would say that there is a decent amount of diversity and it's usually fairly well accepted.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: I haven't applied for financial aid through the financial aid office, but I started college early, so I was able to get some fees waved based on my age/status in the states education laws. But I'd say the educational value is decent for the cost of tuition.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: Child Development at Palomar is pretty easy. If you do a decent job at the work they assign and get the APA formatting right on all your papers, you'll get a good grade. I'd like to be pushed a little more, but I doubt many students share that desire.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: I like most of my professors, but I'm also really picky about teachers, so I research them a lot and choose the best professors I can find, even if it gives me a weird schedule. Overall, the workload isn't bad, and the curriculum is fine.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: It's okay. I don't use too many of the available resources, so I can't say for sure, but of those I have used, most employees aren't too friendly or helpful. My professors have been good, though.
