Brookdale Community College Reviews
I have not actually attended yet, but I will be this fall of 2019. During my registration using the early bird program, I met with several advisers and student success coaches which are basically your school counselors. I was in a humanities (undecided group) which meant at the moment I didn't know what I wanted to major in at the moment. I was lucky enough to be approached by faculty who actually cared and showed drive to get me where I wanted or farther than I originally thought. They first helped me with choosing a major asking what i liked to do and what not. They broke everything down but what was great is they made me feel like i had control and I could really do something with my life even though I had not yet thought it up. I also plan to transfer to Rutgers after my two years and Brookdale can be a valuable asset when it comes to achieving that. I can't wait to attend this Fall.
Brookdale Community College is one of the finest community colleges in the entire country, let alone state. With it’s incredibly diverse student body and a truly amazing staff, the sky is the limit for students who wish to begin their academic careers at Brookdale. With small class sizes and an enormous array of course selection and majors, prospective students are sure to find an area of interest that will excite them about college. It is also a wonderful place to start for students who wish to attend college but may not be able to afford it.
Going to Brookdale was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I was able to get the same education my friends had to without being $100,000 in debt. Community college gets a bad rep but you have to make the most of it. Brookdale offers many different clubs and events for students to go to but if you don’t go, it will be another boring school where you just sit in a lecture for 3 hours and then drive home. If you’re involved, Brookdale will be like any other 4 year college at a fraction of the cost.
