4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The art teachers at CCBC are great teachers, the classes are very cheap compared to other universities but the art teachers work at other credited universities as well. Also, they understand the major because they went through the same work as the students becoming teachers. They do not see art as their jobs, but they do see it as their passion; and although they are older with more responsibility, that passion is shown through their teaching. This makes it easier to listen and engage in the classroom, and also makes it more enjoyable to learn the concepts of art that all artists despise in getting a degree. They are also very helpful when it comes to knowledge on other schools for transfer students, and the portfolio requirements needed. Overall, the art department at CCBC is really amazing because of the teachers.

Academic Experience: The academics offered at CCBC are very widespread which makes it easier to take a class you are interested in as well as it being a requirement. Class registration is very simple if you do your own research, because sometimes the counselors don't seem to have knowledge on a lot of careers students expect to work hard at and achieve. Also, the professors vary from terrible to amazing. I had taken both a health class and a psychology class, failing both of them due to the professors, but took them again with different professors and got exceptional grades (A and B). The professors that make the classroom interesting and engaging are the ones that are just as passionate about their field as the students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: CCBC is a great starter school and it helps prepare you for your four-year school, if you are transferring. The students and the professors are pretty laid back and are easy to talk to. The staff is caring and it seems as if everyone wants to make attending this college very simple. The workload is not so much as to where you don't feel as if you couldn't handle it. The professors are understanding and are easy to go to if there are questions or problems. Everyone is pretty respectful towards each other.

Career Services: The career center is extremely helpful in helping students determine what field they are trying to get into, what degree they need to work for, and what classes are needed for that degree.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Fortunately, I have not had to put out more than a hundred dollars or two. The financial aide office is extremely helpful and is very hard-working in trying to get students the financial assistance they may need. The financial aide office continuously reminds students of deadlines they need to meet and different opportunities. They do this by using students' emails, students' accounts folder, USPS mail, and posters put up throughout the campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: CCBC offers a wide variety of majors and the professors are very informative about the subjects they are teaching. The social scene is mainly in the cafeteria. The facilities are very neat and clean. There are a lot of theatre productions to be able to go to. These are put on by a few different groups, such as the Kids Theatre and the CCBC theatre classes. The shows are not only for students, but are open for anyone in the community to enjoy.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I know that I learn better in a classroom setting, but the online classes I chose to take were more compatible with my schedule. The registration process is fairly simple and does not require you to go to campus. The workload was not tremendous and the time in which to complete the assignments was an adequate amount. The professors will get back to any questions or concerns usually within 24-48 hours. I have only had one on-line class where we had to introduce ourselves through a discussion thread. This is not a type of class to register for if you need to have peer-to-peer interaction. I only had to go to campus for my tests for my on-line classes, and the professors give you plenty notice for you to sign up at whichever campus testing center you choose.

Student Body: A typical student is someone who comes to campus, goes to class, may attend one of the many functions offered throughout the semester, eats in the cafeteria, studies for their next class, goes to another class or two and then goes home. I think the ethnic diversity is pretty wide. I have not encountered any discussions of other students' economic, political, religious, or sexual beliefs or preferences. So in the area of acceptance, the students' level of acceptance is pretty high since those are not the topics that are really discussed.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources that CCBC offers are well managed. The athletic center is open to students throughout the year, such as the pool in the summer. The pool is often open to the public in the summer at specific times. The libraries have tons of resources for students to access. For example, students can use the computers, books or the library internet databases. There have been instances where a teacher may require the class to attend a type of activity, which is most likely offered on one of the campuses for a free or a small fee.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Computer labs can be found throughout the campus. There is also computers in the library and in the lobbies of each building. There is free Wi-Fi, so you do not need a code or anything special like that. It is convenient to have your own personal computer and/or printer, but it is not required. There is a lab rom where you can print for free, as long as it is not in color or off the internet. You can also print in the library, but you have to pay for each page copied. That is a minimal charge, just like at the public library.

Academic Flexibility: Since I am an adult with a child and a husband, my time is very limited. CCBC was extremely considerate of my time and my flexibility. They are also willing to transport students for free between three of their campuses, which really helped in my gas expense. I am now ready to go to a four-year college and all of my credits transferred. I just listened to what my advisor told me and followed the list for my major that was listed in the course catalog.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: CCBC is a great starter school if you plan to transfer. The curriculum is very up-to-date. The professors know that students have lives outside of school, so the work load is not tremendous, but it helps review what was taught that day. The professors will definitely inform students about jobs and internships that are geared towards one's major. I found a job opportunity right on campus that dealt with my major and I got paid for it!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors that I have had dealing with my major have already graduated with the degree I am working towards and have worked in that field. The curriculum that is taught is very current. The registration process is extremely simple. There is the opportunity to register on-line, without having to go into the registration office at all, or you can do it in person if that makes you more comfortable. You do not have to have the internet at home to register since there are so many available computers on campus. The workload is comparable to what you may have gotten in high school. Actually, it is probably less because most students have either jobs, family, or both that they have to attend to outside of school. The programs most associated with my school are teaching, nursing, veterinarian, and art studies.

Student Body: I think the student body is very diverse. I am not sure of the religious and politics part because I haven't had that discus with the other students in my class.

Academic Experience: My school don't offer my major, so I am taking general classes at this time.

Facilities: Some of the unique things abount my school is they have a great resource center, the staff is very helpful, and so far all my teacher have made themselve avaiable to assist the students.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It has been great due to me having difficulty in high school. Thanks to the teachers and the resource center, I have maintain a 4.0 GPA.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience was great. My first semester the total tuition was covered. Second semester it wasn't because I added another class and had to pay for my books and a portion of the tuition..

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.
