Brookdale is a fantastic starting place for students looking to transfer to 4 year institutions. They offer a variety of majors, and their facilities are exceptional for a community college. That being said, opportunities for campus involvement could be increased, as well as the transparency of graduation and transfer requirements. The counselors vary from outstanding in their dedication to significantly less so, and it is often luck of the draw when visiting the advising office. Similar range of quality within the teaching staff; some are of the highest caliber and believe in holding their students to college level academic standards, and some do not feel the same obligation.

All in all, a fine educational institute that I am exceedingly grateful to attend!

Brookdale Commuity College was a great school that helped me get a head start on my future academic successes. The college had amazing professors and students, and everyone always felt included. As for the student life and activities on campus-- fantastic. There was always something to do and some way to be included. I am very thankful to have been able to earn my associate's degree at Brookdale!
I am currently 27, working full time as a PCT at a local health care center. I am married with a baby on the way. For me, nursing school is the means to the end of taking care of my family. We presently live in a one bedroom apartment, barely paying rent. Working full time and going to school full time is a challenge, and it's only going to get harder with a child around next year, but it is so so worth it! I am so thankful for this opportunity! I know that so many people in this world don't have the opportunity I have to go to college and make a career for myself.
