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 Bakersfield College
My experience at Bakersfield College was about as average as any community college student's. Besides that i enjoyed it very much, the professors were amazing and the campus looks good for being in Bakersfield. It looks the best during sunset and it is off of a cliff that overlooks an oilfield. The programs are really good because they offer a great deal of participation and help to the students. I love the library and bookstore they are very convenient right next to one another. The cafeteria is big and there are two food sections for great variety. It is simple to get an education here you just have to set goals and priorities. There are many people and recourses to help you achieve your goals and potentially move toward a better school or job. I finished my general education at Bakersfield College and now I am ready to graduate from a four year school. I easily maintained my education and most importantly my budget here.
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.
