Academic Flexibility: The good thing about transferring here from where I was down south is that up here they aren't completely incompetent. The best thing about being up here is that although they're only a step up from the staff down south I had a bunch of credits that transferred so I only had a few semesters to complete.

Overall Experience: My school is the basic community college. I would not choose to go here if I had the chance to choose again. I only go here because it was close to my house and I didn't have enough money to go to a 4 year private college.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors that I've encountered so far vary. I've had Ethan Kass who is amazing and funny, Mary Jo Viola whose love for all things art is impeccable, Professor Nigel Thomas who loves to argue to make sure you're learning, listening, and thinking; Professor Ziegler whose love of Shakespeare and his ability to compare it to modern works is nothing short of amazing. Then I've had some ok teachers most of my English professors were ok. The only professor I haven't liked is my physics professor he's very unprofessional and is pretty harsh. Class size is ok. I think they're could be more courses offered. I lucked out with my Shakespeare course since it's only offered once every other semester (I believe that's what I was told).

Overall Experience: So much praise for my school's Career and Transfer services. They never disappoint me. There are always tons of emails going out about job opportunities, career fairs, internships, etc.

Online Courses: i've never taken an online class

Student Body: I would say my school is diverse, but not diverse enough. Most of the students are from middle class Hispanic families.

College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel like the tuition for this school should be free. The overall value of education that you're getting in this school has no real value on life. I've seen people cheat in class and professors don't care because it's not thier problem. I've seen professors who have doctorates act highly unprofessional (like talking very clearly and loudly in front of a half of the class about a student's grades and placement in the class). This school is the typical community college that people hear about. Crappy staff, crappy students, and then the students who are genuinely smart and driven they are bogged down by the mediocre students who just want to cheat off one another to feel good that they can show people that they got an A that they didn't even earn.

Career Services: The Career and Transfer service in my school seems to be the best part of the school. They are constantly sending out emails about transfer fairs, career fairs, internship opportunities, etc. I absolutely adore the career and transfer service at my school.

Academic Experience: I'm currently pursuing liberal arts with the hope f transferring to a music program. My major in my school is the worst. We don't have specific advisers, we can pretty much talk to any professor in the science and English department, but these people don't know us and I've been advised twice to take classes towards my degree that i didn't need so i had to talk to deans so they would be applied in lieu of the classes that i needed which was great, but the experience of being in those classes that i didn't need was horrible because they didn't push me to be better as they were under my academic level.

Academic Experience: My school is just now going to implement a creative writing major which I feel is horrible. That should have been something that was always part of the school. I love that without having the best English department in the world they still managed to have a class specifically tailored to Shakespeare which in my book is amazing. Some of the professors are great while other professors are really horrible and unprofessional. Registration is fairly easy. I had a minor problem when I couldn't register for classes that i needed because the system wouldn't recognize that I had the requirements to take the class. However, that was rectified fairly quickly after being sent to two different offices before I was pointed in the right direction.

Campus Resources: I feel the student resources could be offered or displayed better to the students. Many students usually come to school and leave to go to work and those that don't who either lost their job or wanted to focus more on their education have no idea how to join, start, or where to find clubs. I'm that student that lost my job and wanted to focus on school and I've been to the student government association room around 5 times and it is never opened. I've gone there many different times of the day. Also the campus staff is no better. Always giving you the run around because they aren't adequately trained or informed.

Career Services: I'm only taking classes because i was called for the nypd and i want to become a police officer these classes are not helping, and it is difficult to transfer out.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The classes are not hands on biology is all about memorizing the text book and they give too much reading in one night to not be able to ask question come the next class meeting.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: in order to register we have to sit down with an advisor to get a slip to state we can register for classes on top of that they don't help you figure out what classes are right for your major.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: i live 2 hours away from the school and it is almost difficult to get anyone over the phone.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students who have graduated from Bronx Community College or transferred to other colleges report that they miss the school once they left, and others who have transferred in to BCC are very happy with their decision.

As always, a student's experience here depends entirely on him. The professors really seem to care about getting students to the top. The campus is diverse, and there are plenty of tutors to help you succeed. The student government is active and always ready to help students who are willing to succeed.
