It's a great school! It's a great place to go after high school to get your feet wet into the college life. The campus is clean, safe, and has a lot of beautiful greenery. The staff is respectful and always helpful. Resources are available and easy to find. It's not a party school which is a plus. Lastly, the students are so diverse, in life experience and ethnically. You couldn't ask for a better school to go to after high school. I wish this could be a four year university.

Bergen Community College has more resources than most private colleges. The school provides a tremendous amount of help for all types of students; whether struggling in classes or emotionally. Most of the guidance counselors are well trained and even sometimes reach out to you. Recently they've even been making class scheduling much easier, along with adding many improvements around the school, including a new science building. There are many clubs to attend. Most of the professors are great, and actually care about your education.
Great Community College! It has the level of a college but with a reduced tuition. The transferring is smooth and it has so many partnerships with many universities when you decide to go to a four-year college. The academic staff is very prepared and the admissions office very helpful. Also many opportunities for scholarships.
