West Campus Tour Videos

Palmer’s West campus is in San Jose, Calif., a young, diverse community of more than 1 million. Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley among the headquarters of Facebook, Apple and Google, the Palmer West campus offers a small, supportive student body that stays connected well beyond graduation.

The bay area offers a year-round mild climate and abundant recreation. Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Big Basin State Park, Big Sur Coast, the Monterey peninsula and the Napa Valley are all within easy driving distance for weekend excursions and recreational outings. Plus, two Light Rail transfer stations near campus make getting around easy.
