I took about 5-6 online classes and they were all very straightforward, clear, and concise on what was expected of you. You were provided with everything you need to know. The materials were easy to get a hold of and teachers were always quick on getting back to your emails.
BCC teachers and staff make it really easy for you ask questions, feel prepared, and overall confident in your abilities to succeed. BCC also offers many ways for you to receive help and do your assignments to your best ability. I was always able to talk to someone or receive the help I needed.
In the two years that I have been at this school only 2 professors have genuinely cared for my education. The rest of them would rather you do ridiculous amounts of work for very little educational payoff. The teachers don't care, the staff doesn't care, nobody here cares about students, they only care about getting paychecks. Good luck trying to get in touch with advisors, tutors, or anyone who is supposed to be helping you. They will not even make an attempt to be helpful; they will treat you like an inconvenience.
Teaching only got worse when it came to online. During online learning, I only have had one professor care about his students actually learning. The rest would rather post a youtube video, give a discussion, and call it a day. The communication only got worse when it moved online. I NEVER hear from my advisor and the professors just ignore emails. The feeling of just being an inconvenience got worse. If you have any sort of learning disability, stay away from this school.
Jenny Tharp harrasses people on Facebook, particularly the boiling spring lakes, nc page. She sets an absolute horrible example to students and the community.
Currently, all my classes are online. It is not much different than learning in a classroom. My instructors email often and I am able to connect with my classmates through our online class forum.
BCC is a small school with small classes where instructors will always know your name. We have a great school culture and peaceful campus that includes campus-specific inside jokes.
Learning to transition from in-person to online was a rough start but the professors/ staff at Brunswick Community College were there to help out the students. They used different platforms for communication such as emails and Zoom. They also help give access to the internet and computer to those that did not have. They took caution and made the decision of online for the safety of students and staff during this global pandemic.
Brunswick Community College is an excellent 2-year community college. I am currently attending their for my Associates in Arts and then transferring to a 4-year college. Brunswick Community College offers diversity which is amazing to those reaching out for friends. It also offers very educational courses for those attending to get a career and those wanting to get into the work-field with classes that are certified. Their professors are educated and diverse. It also offers college readiness courses for those still attending high school to get a head start on college. I would totally recommend Brunswick Community College to others.
My experience with BCC is an average one, due to the fact that many of the professors are poor teachers and terrible with their students.
Overall Brunswick Community College is excellent. The institution caters to early college students far too much in my opinion, and some instructors are lackluster. Overall it is very good!
BCC is a nice school if you are in the local area and you are looking for a cheap two-year college. It is small and nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. Most of the professors are decent. Some give their all, while others act like they are only there for a paycheck. Overall, I think BCC is a decent place to go to school.
Honestly wish there were better staff in the front office. The teachers tend to be pretty alright, but other than that, the encounters that I have had with the staff hasn't been that great. They are normally rude and not that helpful.
Overall BCC is a great school. Teachers and staff are very helpful and friendly. It's a diverse population and every student I have come in contact with is very friendly. If there is one downfall of the school I would say its communication. Some professors I have had in the past are extremely hard to get in contact with, in all forms. Some I have never heard a response back from which made it very difficult for me in my work performance. The Student Services Department was also not great with communication. Certain things were dragged out way longer than needed/expected. Once I was able to actually come in contact, they were extremely helpful and made sure I left satisfied.
Brunswick Community College has many different types classes that can work with every type of student whether a full-time student or a part-time student who also works. With relatively small classes the instructors are able to work one on one with students if needed. Instructors are also helpful with students if there are extraneous circumstances in which the student isn't able to make it into class. Majority of classes are paperless and everything is delt with online.
At Brunswick Community College, there are variety of people and different attitudes that you may come up on. The instructors are easy to get along with as long as you cooperate with them. With this being my first year, I received a lot of knowledge and preparation on how to be successful in the future.
Brunswick Community College is true to its price. The education you receive depends on your professor. Students here do not seem to have high goals and there is little to no student life.
