Bakersfield College Reviews
My experience at Bakersfield college was pretty good. The campus is really nice and I really like the atmosphere that the faculty gives students and visitors. Although the parties aren't the best and the professors aren't always the most agreeable the college is a great place to receive a great education at an affordable price. There are plenty of amazing clubs and sports to choose from if you're trying to keep yourself busy on and off campus. If you're looking for a decent and economically smart college to go to that provides a good education while having fun, this is your place!
This is my second year here at Bakersfield college and, like most people, I decided to go here then to go to a four year college out of state or to another city is because it was affordable. Money is what weighed out any of the other options any of the other colleges were willing to give. Bakersfield College is very resourceful and provides many workshops and programs to help your needs. This includes financial aid, health and wellness services, tutoring, and they also provide a pantry service. The pantry service allows students, who many not know where their next meal may come from, get food for free. One area I would like to see change is the involvement in clubs, so students can connect and establish healthy relationships with each other. Overall, Bakersfield College is a great community college that can fit your needs.
Bakersfield College is a really nice school and I have so far enjoyed my time there so far. The professors as well as the facility are really helpful and engaging. I am currently a full-time student and the classes I am taking a really interesting and have great professors leading them. BC really strives for excellence from there students and there are plenty of resources if one needs help. The one thing the campus could improve on is their student counseling, due to the influx of students it is hard for counselors to keep up with the case load and often times students schedules get mixed up or students hear conflicting advice from the counselors. However, other than that one issue, BC is a great school and I've really enjoyed my time there so far.
