Overall Rating

Overall I think that Palomar College is a great community college. I like how even though a community college there are still plenty of extracurricular activities available for the students to get involved with. I especially like that there is a Christian club available as well. The campus is large enough yet not so much that it is overwhelming. For prospective students, I would say if they are definitely going to attend a community college in the southern California area, then Palomar is the one to seriously consider.
