Bakersfield College Reviews
Bakersfield College is overpopulated and the majority of terrible professors, outweigh the good ones. Staff should be evaluated more efficiently, to ensure students are getting what they pay for, and there should be enough tutors available to assist the mass of students that are desperate for help. Personally, out of the FOUR YEARS (yep, four years at a two year community college), every single one of the counselors i've talked to never fully know what they're talking about, each one sends you in 100 different directions. It's almost impossible to get into classes as well, since the amount of students attending basically overpowers the amount of classes available. I would not recommend Bakersfield College to anybody, unless they want to spend their senior year at a community college while their friends of the same year are graduating with bachelor degrees at a CSU.
A good start to one's college education for the price! I was able to obtain my AA-T in two years. The professors are overall pretty good! While attending the school I played for the tennis team, therefore allowing me to get priority registration for classes which was a huge help because getting classes can be difficult.
I started Bakersfield College after high school which was 2013, it is now 2018 and I will be graduating Bakersfield College with a AA. Bakersfield College has been great to me! The four years that I have attended to Bakersfield College it has been fun and stressful. It was the school that I change majors three time and helped me find the major I want to fully succeed.
