Johnson Residence Hall (left) and the Sachs Hall administration building are among several University buildings that face the Intracoastal Waterway and the island of Palm Beach.
Palm Beach Atlantic University has come a long way from "Make-Do U" in 1968 to become one of Florida's top Christian universities with nearly 4,000 students and a 29-acre campus on the water in downtown West Palm Beach, plus the nearby 78-acre Rinker Athletic Campus. Still, with a mere 13-1 student-to-faculty ratio, PBA continues to offer a very personalized education. University President William M.B. Fleming Jr. personifies that in his relationship with students.
