Overall Experience: Next to no opportunities, but that is because most students are just there to transfer not start a career

Career Services: Haven't had much contact with them but they seem decently knowledgable.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The best for community college.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great school for education, all the professors seem knowledgeable. However, this school will try to keep you there as long as possible, don't let that happen. And it doesn't need to be said but the social life is non existent. No one even talks to each other in class.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The Criminal Justice program is amazing! There is hardly any workload, it's mostly tests and papers. I am currently working part-time and going to school full-time so I don't really have too much time to spend on homework. The instructors are very helpful and only want to see you succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Brookdale Community College has awesome opportunities for everyone. There class schedule is very flexible, which makes it easier for students who are also working, to find classes at convenient times. I am a Criminal Justice major and all of the instructors are very helpful and want to see you succeed in there classes.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Not only have I been able to schedule classes around my work schedules, but I've had the opportunity to take summer classes as well as winter term classes to ensure I will have my degree on time

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Not the fault of the school, but the fault of my own, I generally don't do well with online classes. I prefer to participate in a classroom envirornment.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes vary. I tried one online class, but did not like it at all. I dropped the online class and took it again the following semester as an in-class option. I liked it much better in class -- easier to grasp the concepts and communication, obviously, was much better

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors teach material in a way that cAn be linked to real life situations. The workload is average and students are expected to produce, however, it is easy to obtain help from tutors and/or to email instructors for clarification or to request deadline extensions within reason.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Brookdale makes transitioning to college a seamless process. From the day I submitted my application and throughout my almost 2 years of attending so far, I feel I have had proper and caring guidance from my professors as well as Brookdale administrators/staff. It has felt like a team effort the way they've worked together with me toward my AA degree in business and helped me to gain acceptance to several 4yr colleges so I can continue toward my BS degree. My experience at Brookdale has been fantastic , I definitely made the right decision to attend .

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The Interior Design program is small and there are not many options for class times; there is typically just one of each class

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I was surprised how much I would learn in such a short period of time in the Interior Design program. The workload is extremely heavy for this major and the classes are long, but it is very necessary and worth it. There are always teachers or learning assistants there to help outside of class time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors care about your progress and success. The campus is quite nice and there are many accessible facilities

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: In my opinion, the flexibility of my classes have been great. Brookdale offers so many classes that you can totally schedule around anything you have. I play a sport and can manage a schedule around it as well as have time to complete homework, go to work, and have a tiny bit of free time.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are great! They are an easy way for a student who does not have a car or time to drive to campus locations to do the work online at there own time. It is very easy to register for an online course which is helpful. However, I would say the professor/student relationship isn't as strong as it would be if you were in a class with the professor, but the communication is still there because you can email each other. Peer-to-peer interaction would be higher on an online course because you mostly are required to comment on other peers work rather than in class when you don't HAVE to talk to one another unless you want to or are doing group work.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Career center is always there for you if you have any questions or concerns. I am not completely sure about the alumni network because I have not heard anything about that from peers.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors at Brookdale all vary which can be very confusing when you go to pick classes. Many people say to take a certain course because it was so easy, but then you take the course and it is extremely hard. This is because professors vary depending on how they teach, their rules, and how strict they are. However, most of the professors I had are very outgoing and easy and will help you with any problems you have. I would say most of the times you will get a good professor rather than a bad professor, but there can be a chance of getting a bad one of course! There are tons and tons of courses offered at Brookdale! Some courses I didn't even think existed! The classes at Brookdale are mostly small which is a plus! Class styles change depending on the class and the professor.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Job and internships are ALWAYS offered at Brookdale and there are tons of opportunities to join them. However, it is your responsibility to go out and get those jobs and internships because no one will come chasing you like they do in high school. The career center/services on campus is very helpful and good source of information. However, they are usually very busy and can sometimes forget about some students since there are so many students and so little of them.
