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
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 actually deserves a lot more credit than it receives. Coming into the college, I thought, "Just another community college," but it is a lot more than that. The classes that I have taken personally have been challenging, because the professors want you to know what is out there. The staff is willing to help you with problems and questions, and if you have any problems with services, you could go to the particular center like counseling, financial aid, or even the student life office if you had some issues with a staff. Overall, the school is great and offers a good experience, especially for those who are lost in the college experience and want to start small.
