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.
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.
Being an ASL major here is the best choice I've ever made. All of the instructors go above and beyond to make sure that everyone understands. There is also a big deaf community of students that attend here and the school will be starting an interpreting program by next year which I am very excited about! These classes really help you to get involved with the deaf community in Bakersfield.
