Online Courses: Took an online course over the summer and had a great experience: instructor was very clear about expectation and workload, he was very helpful and always gave feedback on homework and assignments, students had to post weekly on forums. Also took an hybrid course that met once a month and had a great experience too. Instructors was available when needed and expectations were clear.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Career center is very helpful, counselor are available for appointment and walk-ins.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Instructors are committed to help students reach their goals. They are prepared, pick textbooks reasonably priced and always offer the option to borrow the textbook from the library. Syllabus with clear and detailed instructor expectations and scoring are provided at the start of each class. Small class sizes provide individual attention, and most instructors make a point of learning student names.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: School is very supportive to students looking into transferring to a 4-year.

Overall Experience: BCC is a great community college. It is in a great location and easy to access by public transportation. The instructors are committed to educate the students and help them reach their academic goals whether they want to transfer to a 4-year, take prerequisite classes for post-bac programs, or obtain an associate degree.

5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My college is the best because it values students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: During the 2 years I've study in this school, I can confidently state that this community college has given me countless opportunities to shape my potential as a conscious scholar. This college not only excels at the quality of education by having qualified-experienced professors (the majority holding doctorate's degrees), it also encourages students to think outside the box by allowing everyone of us to create our own clubs or fund organizations.

4 College Senior

Career Services: From what I've seen students go back and work in the lab a TA's so the job prospects are good.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's a wide variety of courses offered at BCC some are only here out of the Peralta college system!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's always posts and bulletins of job and internships around campus.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've had no problems! I like the counselors too because they suggest which class to take...well if you have a regular counselor they'll suggest it more personally to cater to your personality. For example, mine suggested a interpersonal communications course because she knew that I was shy and didn't want to talk much in front of the class as for a public speaking communications course.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online classes but I had friends who did and also hybrid types. I think it depends on what type of class because one friend took communications hybrid and said it wasn't too great which makes sense since he was missing out on real life interaction which is vital for communications.

Another tried to take calculus and dropped because she found it difficult to teach herself math.

4 College Senior

Career Services: If you make connections with students and professors it's great for job prospects but I'm not sure about alumni where you'll have a good word put in for you.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm majoring in the STEM field and I'm not sure how close it is to the real world but it feels somewhat isolating and discouraging because of lack of minorities. It's mostly male dominated but I prefer to have female friends to talk to in class since I get along with them better and there's no pressure of dating or feeling intimidated or disrespected. However, as a minority I find that the few women in my class don't want to be associated with me, surprisingly some of my male classmates were more friendly and willing to have a study women. Also the older students are more friendly compared to my peers.

Only a few of my math and science professors were terrible but I found out the hard way despite warnings from peers and rating of those professors online. One seemed slightly racist and the other couldn't teach and would have tests that didn't relate to their lectures!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think BCC is a great school as well as the other Peralta colleges. This one differs with only having 1 building as it's entire campus. At first I didn't like that but it's nice to occasionally run into professors and I think it helps them remember students. I don't feel like just some face in the crowd like I've heard about colleges. Majority of the staff are wonderful at explaining their material during lectures, others go more into depth if you go to office hours, and they're pretty welcoming too.

The students are so-so I guess but it depends on the class because some are just plain mean or act like you don't exist so you feel isolated. I feel like it's due to competition but it's not exactly the mean teasing/bullying experienced in high school or middle school. Maybe that's just how it is in the real world? I'm not sure but I feel like it's similar to the work environment.

The area is nice for food since there's so many places to go and public transportation is so convenient by Bart or bus, however parking seems to be a hassle esp price wise since this campus doesn't have student parking.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Highly qualified professors who are extremely dedicated to all student success and who provide many resources to aid students.

Small classes (30-40 students usually)

Emphasis on critical thinking

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Despite the quality of the education, most potential employers don't value degrees from community colleges. As such, most students do 2 years at BCC, then transfer to universities that have more name recognition

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Really excellent sociology teachers who place our curriculum in context of the real world.

Discussion of current events and issues, and an emphasis on developing critical thinking.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great experience, dedicated teachers, diverse students and faculty.

Small class sizes but a wide range of available courses.

Easily accessible online resources as well.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There's a wide range of classes that fit my schedule. Even though I'm enrolled in seventeen units, I still have time to study and possibly work.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Forced to comment on other's works, which is good
