3 College Senior

Overall Experience: They provide you with an internship and most in state colleges guarantee your acceptance.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: Would not recommend online classes for anyone. Very hard and there is no guidance from instructors.

2 College Senior

Student Body: Students typically are there for the class and then leave. Friendships are usually made through previous acquaintances, not new ones. Very based on the education no matter how hard teachers try and get students to work with partners.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid office is very helpful, along with everyone in the building to get you on the right path. Definitely worth the money depending on your economic situation.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Have no experience with this.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Teachers are very helpful and work with you to the best of their ability.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Certain classes are easier than others, all based on the professor. Registration is very easy and they walk you through it your first time. Workload can be overbearing but just based on the amount of credits you're taking.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: It's fairly decent especially for a community college, however I do not attend them often.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid works at CCBC as long as you put it in on time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Applying to CCBC Catonsville was very easy and simple. There was no hassle, not for me at least. And they do provide students with work-study opportunities.

College Student

Career Services: I have not recieved a degree at this school.

1 College Student

3 College Student

Campus Resources: There are a fair amount of resources and my school but the availabilty is not very open.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Key to every first-year student's success. FYE ROX!

4 College Junior

Student Body: Each campus has a focus. If you are on someone else's turf you will know. Just smile and be nice and nobody will bother you. Most students are adults and parents so don't expect people to care about you. This is like being in a much more relaxed 13th and 14th grade. If you are trying to continue your education after CCBC keep it to yourself. This is a blue collar community college in Baltimore so if you are lucky enough to have been born above the lower-middle class you would do well to not be a jerk about it.

Tuition & Financial Aid: You will get what you pay for. Also, you will get out only as much as you put in. Remember, want a career: Volunteer!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The Horticulture program is constantly being updated and funded by grants and alumni. The big problem with funding projects in the natural world is having to wait a good few years to really show the difference you made.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Tutors for everything! Because why have someone tease you at a study session when you can get paid to remind them you're smarter than they will ever be!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Each campus has its own specialty and the libraries reflect this. Whatever you do, avoid stirring up trouble in Dundalk as there are countless cadets everywhere.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Using the mathworks tool is easy. There is literally a tutorial for everything. During peak hours, take a break every 30 seconds or so and touch no buttons. This will give the server time to catch up with you. Just don't start erasing work, it will catch up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The student activities groups do not receive much recognition or attention. Students here do not seem to really want to get involved or associate with one another for the most part. The library is pretty big and nice. I know they have a nice, big indoor pools, but they seem to have a lot of time restrictions as to when students can use it. There really aren't many places for students to sit and just study. Just a few chairs or very small tables here and there. The cafeteria would be the main place, but it is very loud and distracting (and has very few food options.)

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not taken an online class yet so I am unable to respond.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: its a great opportunity for those with a busy schedule.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Even though it's a two-year school, the Community College of Baltimore County still packs a four-year punch in terms of everything it provides. Student life activities are planned by the season, with athletics, events, and clubs and organizations that are top-notch. Any student can choose to be a Greek member, Black Student Union correspondent, or MVP for the CCBC basketball league.

Aside from the student life aspect, CCBC makes academics its top priority. All professors have a different way of teaching; however, they are all similar in one aspect—they expect a lot from their students. No one said that college-level courses would be easy, and the professors at CCBC make sure that students earn their grades (whether it's an A or a D). To make the Dean's List at the end of each semester, a student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher while taking at least 12 credits without earning a D or F during that time. To be a part of the Honors Program, a student must complete 15 honors credits and earn an overall GPA of 3.5 or better. For students who struggle with school, CCBC provides tutoring resources to help students try to achieve Dean's List or honors status. With so many opportunities and support, there's no excuse not to get the most out of this college, but it's really up to the student. The future is in his or her hands.
