3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is pretty apathetic. I find myself overachieving just because I raise my hand. I do wish I was surrounded by more opinionated, insightful people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, my CCBC experience has been great. It's the best option if you don't know what you want to do or can't afford a 4 year. The campus isn't always very energetic, but the teachers make up for that. Honors program is also a great option if you need to be a little more challenged. Advising is not good.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There aren't a lot of activities or clubs on campus. The library is dated and the "cyber cafe" isn't very cyber friendly. If I study on campus, it's usually in my car.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There aren't printing labs in every building but they have one in one building. Wireless is great and reliable! Printing is free.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My department head has been so accommodating with advising me. He also runs an internship program.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I really like my classes. I think they are a little less challenging because most of the students are apathetic. I will be entering Honors classes next semester because of that though.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is extremely affordable with no hidden costs. To my knowledge, they do not provide extra financial aid. Only federal grants.

3 College Junior

Facilities: It's nothing special. It's a community college with not a lot of energy. The cyber cafe has no plugs so not the best study space...

The library is dated and the dining hall isn't the best place to study.

2 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't made the transition yet but I have had no help in advising.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I loved my online class. My professor allowed me to call him if I ever had questions and the material was actually extremely interesting.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was unsure going in what major to take. I didn't want to waste time and money. I might would have just picked a 4 year college if I had it to do all over again.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The gym is open to student on certain night of the week for recreational purposes. The library has been re-done and has all the necessary resources for doing work and projects.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I use the printer on campus every now and then but it is costly so only when i have forgotten to print at home.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Many of the people I see on campus went to school with me. it is a community school so alot of people make it the first stop in the academic career before moving on.

College Junior

Facilities: not many unique things with the school. Parts of the campus have been rfurbished and the computer building is nice.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition costs are high but Catonsville classes are resonable.

College Junior

Career Services: I am still in college

College Junior

Academic Experience: I have not taking direct courses in the field of study just yet. I am concentrating on the entry level course work to get used to college life and courses. So far I am enjoying my experience and look forward to getting into my program very soon.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are friendly and willing to work with you. They are accomadatinng and supply extra assistance when needed. Some of the classes are not as exciting as others but that is mostly the material. Overall the programs are great and the faculty seems to care.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Teachers are understanding and will assisy with picking courses, tutoring or extra guidance needed.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus at CCBC is very structured, and there are not many aesthetically stunning buildings or scenery. It is hard to find out about campus activities because there aren't many posters or advertisements that make students want to attend them. The library is very helpful and the learning centers are as well. Learning centers/ writing centers are probably the best resources because people who want to help students run the centers and make it easier to write papers and get help on certain classes.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Labs and printing are very sufficient, but sometimes very limited because of how many students use them and need them throughout the day. Network reliability is great, but most classes don't need computers or networks in class, and they are used more during free hours for homework.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition for CCBC is expensive, but also very cheap compared to other schools, and with my major it is very much worth it. The financial aid office contains a lot of very good people who engage in the students' problems. Books are very expensive like any other school, but finding the right websites makes it easier to save money.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The classes offered at CCBC are wide-ranged and it is very easy to take courses that will also balance out your schedule outside of school. The only challenge with this experience is knowing you have to take a certain class and waiting last minute to sign up, making it hard to create the perfect schedule. When it is time to transfer, it is very easy to do it on your own with the correct forms.

2 College Junior

Career Services: These services are not very helpful because the people running these centers seem to have those jobs not for the sake of wanting to help students.

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.
