The student career prospects and the value of a degree from my school is very beneficial. I say this because CCBC is connected with various schools. This means that the credits you have received with CCBC all with transfer to schools that CCBC has a partnership with. Transfer Day really demonstrated how many schools that CCBC has made am agreement with. I talked to many schools there and they all basically said that they can accept all my credits. It is also good that a course you have taken at CCBC that matches with a course at another college that the student will not have to take that course over again. I believe this is a great for students because all we are worrying about is getting our credits, graduating, and that our credits with transfer. With CCBC, student do not have to worry about that. For students in the nursing, aviation, and police academy are the top three programs I know that a student with be guaranteed a job. I believe other programs with receive the same if you go on the internship website. All a student has to do is sign-up and submit their resume and the site will find internships in your field. There is also another website that CCBC students can go to find jobs as well. CCBC is a very beneficial school for us as students as well as the community

My overall experience at Community College of Beaver County is great. I love everything about it. The campus, the classrooms, the café, the library, and various other areas on the school ground. There are a lot of activities that students can participate in; either on campus or off campus. I have been a part of majority of these activities. I have been to the Pittsburgh Pirates game twice, a Haunted Trail, the Pittsburgh Zoo, College Fair, Transfer Day, Job Fair, and some many other events on and off campus. I believe this is what makes my school unique because it reaches out to the students as well as the community around it. These activities are open to everyone not just faulty and students. Community College of Beaver County is the definition of a community because everyone is like family. I recommend this school to upcoming graduates all the time because if they are undecided in their major or what they want to pursue in life they can go where I go and get there general courses out the way for a reasonable price. I believe if I had went to the school I was originally was supposed to go to I would be extremely stressed out and would be doing terribly in my major as well as my classes. Since I have been at CCBC, I have received Dean's List my first and second semester and my stress levels are very low. I am very happy I made the decision to go to CCBC; I do not regret it at all.

My experience with courses and professors at my school is great. The professors are available to help you when you need it. On the first day of class, the teacher gives us their information such as email, cell phone, and office hours, so students can reach them when they have a problem in a certain area of the course. The courses are dependent on the criteria of CCBC as well as a students major. Each student has to take Composition, Public Speaking, or Introduction to Technology, but some students do not have to take a math, history, Spanish, or various other course depending on what their major. CCBC has a lot of course to offer to students within a major or without a major. CCBC is a very comfortable setting from the classroom to the restroom. If someone does not want to be a number, then CCBC is the best place for you the professor knows you by name because of where you may sight or your face. For my sociology teacher he knew me because of these fancy glasses I wore once and every time he would see me he would ask me where were my glasses. CCBC is a great atmosphere for everyone.
