3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I feel that schools in Maryland have different requirements for general studies. Some require extra classes to be taken, some require less.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It was great to go to a school that offered a variety of classes that went towards my program and is a great school to go to if you work full time.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Since there are a lot of people in the same program, there is a great chance of meeting and making friends with new people.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have not had to take an online class at this campus yet but I have not heard any bad reviews.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Lots of variety and diversity in age and culture.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I have yet to go to the career center and my adviser is very hard to get a hold off.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: A variety of locations to attend and love the professors!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This college carries the accredited degree for my major.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: New student center and nice campus.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is high for community college.

4 College Student

Student Body: The diversity at my college is quite pronounced. From what I observe, the student body is rich with ethnic, political, and sexual acceptance. As far as religious and economic, I've yet to discern that among the body as a whole. The students seem happy on campus, especially during the more warmer months.

3 College Student

Online Courses: I've only taken one class online so far in my college experience. I found it easy in the aspect that I didn't have to leave my house, but as far as clarity on just what would be on exams or tests, and what information was more critical than other information was quite vague. I passed the class, but it was not that rewarding. It was a required course, so I did what I had to do given my schedule.

College Student

Career Services: I am still an undergraduate, so I have not necessarily experienced these to form a valid opinion on the subject. I have however had some experience with the career center when I first started at the college. I would say it was very helpful getting started toward my major of choice.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed my time thus far enrolled in college. I love learning new concepts and advancing my career through the path that I carve with my dedication and perseverance. I honestly would not choose this school if I had to do it all over again. I'd want to go straight to a University instead of going to a Community College. It would be more expensive, but I think it would be more rewarding in the long run.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: The only resources I have utilized on campus would be the student center and the library.

Both of these resources are very helpful. From taking tests assigned from online classes or final exams in the student centers, I've had no complaints on that department. The workers are friendly and quick with getting students in and taking their exams.

The library was mostly used for quiet studying between classes. I've checked out very few books on just personal interests. It was mostly for research papers and what not. Definitely a pleasant experience in the library though, the workers are nice and will answer your questions adequately.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school Financial Aid office is a terrible experience. The workers there treat you like they do not care and just want to get through their day full of tedious monotony. I understand they deal with a lot of students, but we all want to just pay for our education and better our future. The lines are long, the workers are cranky and they make you jump through metaphorical hoops to get your FAFSA turned in correctly. A headache to say the least.

College Student

Academic Flexibility: I am still attending a community college and I will not being going through the process of credit transfer until I attend Towson University.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: I am perusing an Associates in Science currently at CCBC. Some unique aspects of my program is being able to learn about the world around you from a scientific stand point. The workload is not difficult as long as you put in the time and effort to get the grade you desire. As for the actual classes the curriculum requires, some of the classes required for the AS program they have at the campus are not always available that semester forcing some students to either take other classes in its stead, or travel farther to a different campus which offers it (and sometimes not even other campuses offer it!). This option is not always feasible for some students. As far as the actual curriculum itself, I'd say the classes required are just. They cover the particular fields of science you need to progress to a four-year school of your choice. The facilities, I believe are upheld quite nicely. I've never had a bad experience using them at my campus. The internship/job opportunities at the campus are quite unknown to me, as I have not applied to any internships at this campus. My internship would be best suited for my major elsewhere.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: The Academics offered at my school are quite average I'd say. Now granted, I have not experienced every professor of every class on the campus, but I have run into quite a few professors that just don't really do their job well enough to be a college instructor. Ratemyprofessor.com has also given me some insight at other students experiences with professors I have either already taken or would plan on taking due to the classes that are required for my major. Many bad reviews on most of the science teachers that instruct the classes I need, at the times that are most feasible with my college schedule. I am paying good money for these classes and sometimes its a little disappointing that so many other students have had bad experiences when it can reflect their GPA/College experience. These ratings are only subjective though, as everyone's opinion varies. With that being said, there are also a good amount of amazing professors on campus that are knowledgeable about their field. They enjoy teaching it, and can express the information to the students in a way to which it will stick in their minds and make it fun in the process. Those are the kinds of professors that I'd want for the rest of my college experience.

Campus Resources: No need using the public library or gym, all you need is on campus.

Tuition & Financial Aid: For the first year, I did not know anything about paying tuition. Luckily, the school had their own payment plan with in-county and out-of-county fees. Most part my parent did all of this.

Even though it's a two-year school, the Community College of Baltimore County still packs a four-year punch in terms of everything it provides. Student life activities are planned by the season, with athletics, events, and clubs and organizations that are top-notch. Any student can choose to be a Greek member, Black Student Union correspondent, or MVP for the CCBC basketball league.

Aside from the student life aspect, CCBC makes academics its top priority. All professors have a different way of teaching; however, they are all similar in one aspect—they expect a lot from their students. No one said that college-level courses would be easy, and the professors at CCBC make sure that students earn their grades (whether it's an A or a D). To make the Dean's List at the end of each semester, a student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher while taking at least 12 credits without earning a D or F during that time. To be a part of the Honors Program, a student must complete 15 honors credits and earn an overall GPA of 3.5 or better. For students who struggle with school, CCBC provides tutoring resources to help students try to achieve Dean's List or honors status. With so many opportunities and support, there's no excuse not to get the most out of this college, but it's really up to the student. The future is in his or her hands.
