Bishop State Community College Reviews

201 reviews
All Categories
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!
Review Bishop State Community College
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.
I like choosing my schedule. The teacher's are lenient and put in a lot of effort to help their students out. They give their students second chances on class assignments and provide students with enough help. For example, they make time to listen to their students problems one on one and search for the best solution to make learning a bearable process. Bishop State Community College is pretty small in the amount of students who attend the school, so it's easier to learn since the classes are not so big. This college is obviously one built for African American students, which gives me an opportunity to learn of their culture. I wouldn't choose this college again if I could because the students who attend this college is not as motivated in their classes. Sometimes it discourages me which is why I want to go to a university where the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and where I am surrounded by students who are motivated and diligent in their classes.
