At Bucks, because of the diversity that is present, there are plently of clubs and groups around campus that make their &quot;stories&quot; known. Bucks CCC definitely has a mass diversity of cultures and ethinicities. There is always a place for someone at Bucks and generally, everyone is friendly and open to new people. Many students of Bucks come from all different types of economic classes. Some students come from Philadelphia in the lower economic classes while some students come from the Newtown area who are in a higher economic class. Alot of students also work part (or full) time along with taking classes. The students age ranges from 16(students in high school who take college credits) to people as old as 70 (yes, I have personally had a 70 year old in my psychology class)!

Time-Consuming, but Beneficial! The professors that I have encountered at Bucks thus far, have all been spectacular. They are always there to help you learn and understand things you don't get. Although i've met some that are a little dull while teaching, they are very nice people and are always willing to work with you individually if you need it. The class registration process is very time-consuming. You need to search through a multitude of classes to find the one that fits your schedule and needs. There is such a wide variety of courses. You must take into account what day the class is on, what time, who the teacher is, what the style of teaching is, etc. Although if you take the appropriate time to do this, you will be very satisfied! Because there are so many options, you are able to find the perfect class for you. They even have online and hybrid courses to suit your needs. Act fast though, if you wait too long you may be too late! Bucks offers many different study options and programs to help you succeed. The tutoring center is a major asset if you need help in a certain area!

I have not yet had to deal with the impact of a Financial Aid Office. I am fortunate enough (at the community college level) to have not had to get loans or financial aid from the school. Because I have had to pay for college and books with the help of my parents, the tuition has however, affected me. I would say that the tuition at Bucks County is a steal for the great education you receive. Not to mention the easy process it is to schedule your classes and then pay your bill. Once you get onto your WebAdvisor account, you schedule your classes as you'd like. After this, you click &quot;Pay Bill/Tuition&quot;. Enter in the billing information and you're ready to go to class! Bucks County Community College makes college as &quot;easy&quot; as college can get.
