Bergen Community College is one of the best community colleges in New Jersey. Professors are awesome! Everyone is so helpful there. You get so many opportunities, for instance, I got my first job because of the job fair they have every semester. I improved so many skills not just by attending classes, but participating in many events, like ted talk. Learned The American Sign Language by going to the ASL club. If you are someone who is looking to study in a community college, BCC is your best choice.

Paramus, New Jersey's Bergen Community College exceeded what I had anticipated when I elected to earn a cost-effective degree. I expected that because of each course credit is paid for separately, rather than a consolidated tuition price, that I wouldn't receive a quality education; I was wrong. The Computer Science, A.S. program has been both engaging and eye-opening with its boundless resources, collaborative workshops, and rigorous classes. Where there's a lack in housing and night life, it's ultimately a return on investment: I paid to acquire knowledge to transfer to a 4-year university, and to be prepared for the workforce ahead.
Even though it is a community college, there are so many opportunites at this school compared to the other 18 community colleges out there in New Jersey. Very friendly, great teachers, staff, advisors. Highly recommend!
