Bishop State Community College Reviews

I believe Bishop State is a great place to start. It's affordable and they're reliable. Some people talk down on community colleges, but this one is different. The way they teach, for example, is wonderful. Even the hardest subjects, such as biology, they put it into a perspective you can easily understand better. I just wish the students got more involved in the activities they provide. Show pride for you school no matter what!

Bishop State has a great curriculum set up. It is organized and has the potential to out great employees into society. My review is based on the nursing program. When I was attending nursing school at the college, I found that the graduation rate was poor and the moral of the students was not great at all. Many students did not pass the nursing test nor the entire program. Looking back, I can remember a few fellow students that I would love to work with on a nursing unit any day. In order to be successful in the program, you would need to be extremely organized and disciplined and mentally strong to put with the challenges brought on by the staff. It was unnecessarily difficult.
Bishop state community college behaves like , well , you'd think a community college would . They are slow moving on important academic paperwork ( such as transcripts , grades , etc.) It has been in Mobile, Al for a very long time and boy is it showing it's age . Although there are things I did not like about the school I can say that all of the staff is very friendly . Everyone speaks and interacts with everyone . They definitely treat you like family over at Bishop State.
