There is little to no parking. Poor planning and lack of foresight for an educational Institution. If you're looking to take classes at a campus where you can park, go to Boca.

From registration, financial aid, advisors, to selecting classes, EVERYONE has been VERY HELPFUL & a DELIGHT at the LAKE WORTH campus. I take early classes so the bathrooms are VERY clean at this time, as well as the OVERALL campus. Even when I have to bring my munchkins, nobody looks at me crazy, if anything their MORE HELPFUL! I thought starting college would be DIFFICULT & they've made it VERY EASY for ALL! If your coming to further your education and raise your PAY GRADE, get your diploma/ certification here. I thought I may have to look over my shoulder yet even the students are VERY pleasant & I'm VERY COMF0RTABLE. I'm glad I'm finally getting my degree & HOPE this encourages others to do so as well. BTW there's a D&D on campus, perfect for PICK ME UP's!
