4 College Senior

Facilities: The state of the art exercise equipment at Paterson Field House (the gym) and the new intramural basketball and volleyball teams are great!

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I love the online courses. Registration was easy. The teachers were organized and nice. There was a high quality of interaction between students and teachers.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computer network is fine. The only thing to consider is that the wireless access does not extend throughout the campus, sometimes in a classroom on the far end the signal will not be picked up.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The schools offers a variety of after school activities in order to broaden the experiences of the students who attend. FORUMs bring guest lecturers, projects, and art to the school for others to enjoy and learn from.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Facilities are fine for a small Community College campus, as is BCC. There is a pool, gym, library, computer center, and even playground for small children. The campus is generally clean and nice and improvement's are being made on the structure.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Very diverse group of students, ethnic, political, and racial. I feel that everyone does accept each other, and judgment is over looked

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I wish that the professors were more involved with the students at times

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Right now my workload is not too overwhelming! I'm currently enrolled in Elementary Education, and last semester I had the opportunity to help out at a local Elementary school. I tutored third graders three times a week. It was a great experience, and gave insight to the field I wish to go into

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have yet to experience it for myself, but for those that have come back to look for help finding a job, have felt that the college does quite a bit to help you out.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body ranges from people who just graduated high school, to going back to school, to others who have just retired and want to take another class

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Everything is wonderful, except for the Advising office. That needs a restructuring bad.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Student body is very diverse. A decent amount of students are non traditional and very busy with school work and kids. most are friendly

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They really try to work with you giving you as much money as possible. I haven't had to pay a dime out of pocket since i have started

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics are great however i am in the human services program and have been finiding myself learning the same thing each semester

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The resources a good they just did the gym over. We have an excellent theater. A student lounge. Two levels to our library both very quiet. Outside seating.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have a ton of resources. Students with disabilites. A free tutoring center that is absolutely amazing. TRIO. Groups for non tranditional students.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: BCC is a very good school with many excellent academic programs. The bus service is lacking though and you may feel that you are learning the same thing as you continue your degree. Everybody is different and it is very easy to make friends. There are two computer labs but they are often full.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is nothing unique about this college. The only thing that the administration is proud of is the "Core Competencies" package-- eight or so "areas of knowledge" that you get simply by passing classes! Not very educational or developmental.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It is not very flexible academically at BCC. The curriculum is very strict, and there is very little room for freedom in the degree program- the main reason I am transferring is because they don't have my major, and the course requirements for the liberal arts degree are exactly like in high school. There is breadth, certainly. But no depth.
Additionally, it's very easy to fall through the cracks as a student here at BCC. I have heard many cases of students signing up for a course, the course not reaching capacity, and then getting stuck in another course that they hadn't signed up for.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is a very small computer lab, perhaps there are about 30 Windows desktops- but no one ever seems to have to wait. The wireless internet works most of the time, but only in about 80% of the classes. It's impossible to get internet service outside, around the smoking areas.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is an athletic center, but I've never been in it. However, I have a lot of friends who enjoy it. The library is small, but it is very easy to order a book through the Inter Library Loan service, which connects you to many other libraries in the area. "Forums" (necessary 1-hour events for your associate's degree) are really hit or miss.

4 College Junior

Student Body: There seems to be a wide variety in the student body. I have classes with a wide variety of different ethnicity..

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am an Early Childhood Major and the head of the department is wonderful. She understands that each student is unique and builds her curriculum based on their specific needs. She is well known in the community and always posts job openings and suggests great places for internships. She makes is impossible to miss any opportunities for success in the feild.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors I have had are all very nice, like working with each student's specific needs and sincerely want to ensure each student recieves the education they deserve. The workload and curriculum are fine. Registration can be a hassle but where is it not?

3 College Junior

Student Body: This is a close knit family for the most part from Pittsfield Ma, however, the other students keep themselves at bay and nobody interferes with each other. Casual friendships seem out of the fact that being there motivates it. It is a community college and there is no dorm life to speak of.
