My high school GPA was very low, and Beacon was the only school I was able to get into. Originally I was only planning to go for a few semesters and then transfer, but I’ve connected really well with the faculty here and am now planning on staying for the full 4 years.
My main criticism would be that the staff tends to infantilize the students. The freshman classes are a joke, assignments are graded super leniently, and the assignments themselves are not challenging at all.

Beacon College is a very good place to attend college. The staff is very equipped to handle most students attending with learning differences. They have smaller classes and you always feel like you Are learning without feeling inadequate.
I have made some awesome friendships that will last a lifetime! This is my last year and they have been very helpful in my growing and learning how to fit into the upcoming workforce.
Good relationship with professors with small classroom settings that is ideal for my personal college experience. I only wish their were more shops/eateries around in the local area that is easily accessible to students. Campus life is very nice especially since it is only made up of apartment complexes compared to traditional dorms. It does add a lot more personality to the living style as not many other colleges obtain apartment complexes. The food is pretty good with a decent selection to choose from in a small cafeteria but i only wish they stayed open later with more flexible hours during the day. Recreation is pretty decent with a gym very close to one of the complexes available during the day with very flexible hours. Student center is a nice place to hang with friends or do some work as i use it the most for playing pool with friends. Overall, i do think it is a good fit for me especially since i personally have a disability being ADD.
