Barstow Community College Reviews
I had a good time attending Barstow Community College. I struggled through some classes, but I felt like I meshed well with my professors and made some great connections. The student government does a fine job promoting events, and there is plenty of support to get its students to move along to a 4 year of their choosing. The highs of the school are some of its professors, its theater program, and a great number of its faculty. Its lows are the employment opportunities, the number of students that are just there for a check, and a general sense of apathy among some of the students.
It is a very small community but the teachers are very nice and motivating. I actually took summer classes and they were good reasonable homework. I later moved on to fall then spring. I have joined their theater clubs and honor society and it is a bit hard to get students motivated and join clubs but that is what makes the clubs even more reason to have them. It is to recruit others and get them involved in school. They have great teachers and several programs that help students with books and meal cards. Like EOPS, Calworks, CARE, and the YESS program, they also have a program for incoming high school students named Barstow promise. Promising kids their first year is free. They have something called a food pantry where students can come in and fill up a bag of food like rice cereal peanut butter.
I originally was Chicago, Illinois and I transitioned to this 2 year community College. It was a total environmental change for me. I was used to being amongst a group of people. Barstow Community college is a very quiet campus. There is a seldom amount of people that attend but everyone their is really nice and willing to help students succeed in whatever endeavors they choose. I'm giving this five stars only because of encountering on of the best counselors there Mrs. Rodriguez.
