BC3 offers a multitude of sports for the students to play. They also encourage all students to join some type of student-based groups and host many "get social" events. The library looks a little dated, but it has all the resources we could need. From computers, to a large selection of books, to even some textbooks, it's a good resource that is open to all students. The student center is great. It offers tutoring, advisers, and all those who work in there will help with just about anything. Recently, my adviser helped me create and perfect a resume. Also, on the top floor of the building is the student store that is filled with just about anything you could need while in school. It has snacks, a textbook store, school supplies, lunch foods, apparel, and even book bags! It even has an ARMCO Credit Union and a non-charging ATM. There are also many places for students to "hang out" while on break or waiting in between classes. Almost every building has an area filled with chairs and tables for the students to utilize. One of my favorite things is the picnic tables and outdoor chairs. It is perfect for those who enjoy being outside in nice weather. BC3's cafeteria serves many foods and has a weekly food schedule, so you can plan accordingly. Also, if you don't like what they're serving that day, there is a menu of foods they serve daily, a salad bar, and cup-o-noodles. Another great thing about BC3 is the professors. Almost all of the professors are willing to help whoever asks for it. A lot of the professors that I've had are the perfect amount of personal and professional. Students who choose to go to BC3 make a smart decision by doing so.

Aside from the one class needed to graduate one of my degrees only being offered at a specific time, causing me to be unable to graduate, I have had a great experience. The instructors are very helpful, in the past Mr. Zorn, Mrs. Colonna, and Mrs. Wright were very helpful. They took the time to explain and assist in any help needed. They became great mentors throughout the semesters. The class registration process is very easy, I love that current students get the option before new and returning students. As for studying options, note cards, and rewriting notes are the way to go!

The cheap cost does not mean a bad education. I love the education I'm receiving. It is well worth the money. Financial aid is super easy and all of it is done through the college and most of it can be paid off before you graduate, if you're working. You can pay for supplies, books, and even gas through financial aid, if necessary. They are quick and efficient at what they do. They started a newer program called E-Z pay. Where students can pay their tuition in smaller segments throughout the year. They pretty much offer it all!
