A pretty great school! Professors are really show you that they care about the success of their students and make you feel comfortable in the classroom. There is a new building that is updated and it's amazing. The setup of the seating of the classroom is very new and fresh! Out of the four buildings, two of them should really be updated as well (the overall image of the school would go up) I wish there were more activities that the school would offer but other than that, it's a pretty good choice for someone that wants to go to a community college and focus more on grades than being social.

I graduated from BHC in 2014 after 3 years (my music degree took forever!). I was able to complete over 100 credit hours at an incredibly affordable tuition rate. There are many scholarships you can apply for to assist as well! After the amount of education I received, I left with an associates degree and NO DEBT.

For the most part, the staff is friendly and helpful. The majority of the teachers I had were passionate about their jobs, and it showed in every class. Some of them weren't as great, but you will get that anywhere else you attend. Every person is different, and that extends to teachers as well.
The teachers would show how much they cared about their students unlike most of the advisors there. I loved the school though. The teachers were always willing to help out students with anything and provided many useful resources. Most are really understanding. I loved the food on campus specially subway! :)
