When I had decided I was going to register for classes this semester, I was a little fish in a big pond. I new nothing about the process or the territory. Luckily for me, every campus employee I've come across has been nothing but extremely helpful! In just two days, I had everything I needed to start class, I was registered and I lined everything up all the way to graduation. I've never stepped up to a task with such confidence and I'm a completely different person from the scared child I was in high school. I've been nothing but blessed and thankful this whole experience.
Review Your College
Bakersfield College is a great school love the staff they are always so friendly and helpful! The staff at the bookstore are really helpful and always have a smile in their face. The books are a bit pricey compared to amazon and one of the English professors i had was kinda perverted he showed things that weren't related to English and always was off topic. I love Bakersfield college because its a good school and everyone is extremely helpful.
Bakersfield College is a growing community college. I am glad that I started out here rather than spending thousands of dollars going to a university. At BC, the professors are accessible to you at any time. The classes are smaller, so one-on-one time with the professor to actually talk about an issue is more frequent and they actually know your name. In all my classes I have taken, the professors are so excited and passionate about the topic they teach. You can tell they love what they do and are there for a reason and in my honest opinion, the teaching there is by far extremely better than any university.
