The Fashion Apparel Design Program is a NEWBIE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, it is NOT PROPERLY PROMOTED. And many of us are suffering through this. The professors especially Prof. Rutter, are awesome. Just that this PROGRAM IS MISMANAGED!

We LEARN SO MUCH in the Fashion Industry and how everything comes together. BUT IT'S JUST THE PROGRAM IS MISMANGED IN SCHEDULING. WE LEARN ALL OF THESE THINGS (sewing, business, textiles, etc.), JUST FOR SOMEONE TO NOT LET US GO ON AND MESS UP THE SCHEDULING NOT LETTING ANYONE ELSE REALLY BE ABLE TO SCHEDULE WITH THIS ALONG WITH GEN ED COURSES.

Bergen Community College has a wonderful range of academics. There is truly a major for everyone and every curriculum is filled with wonderful professors who care. The school offers basic classes and support groups for students who need that extra push, while they also offer Honors classes for those who excel. The honors program is phenomenal and filled with such knowledgeable professors. Students with over 44 credits and who are in the honors program receive priority registration. The registration process is very simple and there are always advisors ready to help if an issue were to arise. Bergen Community College is truly a great academic institution!

Bergen Community College gives students the resources they need to transition into the work force and higher education. One of my favorite experiences is joining Student Government Association where a group of students are accepted to evaluate and resolve issues throughout the school. It taught me responsibility, time management, and professionalism. I have learned organizational and people skills among many other skills and have met other smart and ambitious students are have been very open and kind. I would choose Bergen Community College if I had to do it all over because it prepares me for my future and assists me in finding my passion. It's a great first step!
