Blue Ridge Community College - North Carolina Reviews
I have had a fairly good experience at BRCC. Academic wise, the teachers are helpful and the course work is not too bad. Of course, like any college, there is a few teachers who make there classes more confusing than necessary. The campus is improving, the administration is working hard to construct more efficient buildings. The student life is lacking as most students just show up to do there class in leave. However, most are nice and helpful if you try to have a conversation. Despite the negatives, Blue Ridge is a good college with many opportunities.
Overall, My experience has been great! The teachers and classmates are very helpful. Also, the whole staff is friendly and wants you to pursue in your career.
I enjoyed my time at BRCC. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. Coming from homeschooling my entire life to BRCC was scary. I was nervous when I first started, but the small class sizes helped a lot. By going to BRCC and living at home, I have saved a ton of money. I am now leaving for a university in TN to finish my nursing degree. I know the science classes I have taken with Dr Hayes will help me to be successful in my field of Study. The teachers at BRCC are tough. Patrick Rogers, English teacher, strict but thorough teaching helped me to write much better than before. I can now write ten page research papers at the last minute and actually do very well. The chemistry classes at BRCC are as tough as doctorate level, and they shouldn’t be. I opted to withdraw Chemistry 151 class and retake at AB Tech. I wish they had more options for the science classes, esp Chemistry. I really enjoyed my psychology classes. If you think community college is easy, it is not.
