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!
When I first started to attend I thought I would not want to be involved in any clubs or organization. Now I am the Officer of Fellowship in Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The staff encourage you to branch out and seek out opportunities. There are a large variety of clubs, classes, and opportunity. We have a learning lab devoted to the students were we can study, write papers, and seek tutoring. We have student and teaching staff as learning assistance. The staff truly want the best for us present and future. Which is why our college motto is " A Great Place to Start."
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.
