3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My schools staff hasn't been very helpful, they hardly want to advise you much less spend anytime learning what you expect out of school. Also advisement is randomly assigned to different staff that has nothing to do with the specific major he student has so they are mostly clueless

1 College Senior

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

After taking a semester at Bronx Community College, most students will agree that the school has one of if not the best teacher-friendly atmospheres in New York City colleges. The class size is roughly 30 students for every teacher, but students are properly catered to when it comes to academics, though this mostly applies to students who are serious and committed. This does not mean the school is perfect in this respect. There a few complaints here and there, but success, as always, depends on the individual.

For the beginning of each class, students are given a set of syllabus. The syllabus outlines expected academic requirements, grade procedures, and the class attendance policy. The professor gives detailed explanations of the syllabus for the first day of class. It is very important, though, to ask questions at this period since professors sometimes fail to cover certain critical issues. It is also a good idea to speak with an adviser to avoid any confusion. Some professors base their final grades on final exams, but it is advisable to take class serious at the beginning of the semester as professors easily recognize good students at this time.

Class Sizes
There are usually about 40 to 45 students per class. You will find, though, that as the class progresses, a number of students tend to drop out. This mostly applies to math and science courses that are considered difficult. Make use of resources, such as the math tutoring lab in CPH 303, the chemistry tutoring lab in Meister 814, and the biology tutoring lab in Meister 418.
Student/Professor Relationships
Students who take classes seriously are easily recognized due to class size. Most BCC professors are very friendly outside of class. Knowing your professor helps to boost your confidence.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
Every student pays student activity fees. Unfortunately, most students are unaware, and this money disappears because it does not roll over. If you are a member of a club, or if you have an idea for a new organization, you should put in a request with the Student Life Office to request for funding.
