Bucks County Community College Reviews
As for an international student Bucks County Community College was my first school experience in the US. Without any hesitation, I can tell that this was the best experience so far in my life. Advisors were always there for me, as well as my professors who were always ready to be addressed with any concerns I had. I would get prompt responses within a day on any email I sent. Classes were challenging. Every professor encouraged me to work hard and helped me out in all ways possible including availability after class and during office hours, as well as help with homework via email. It took me as non native speaker a lot of hours and dedication to achieve a 3.9 GPA; however, it would not be possible without great help from all the staff that I had. I recommend everyone to take some classes at BCCC. It can give anyone a strong background, especially in science classes but besides this, it will also make you feel like you are a part of one big family. I made so many friends at BCCC!
I like how many different options there are for taking courses. There are face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes for both the fall and spring semesters. The professors seem to be pretty understanding of students struggles outside of the classroom and are receptive to needed academic adjustments. The professors I have had are very good at responding to emails and questions, they really want you to succeed! I wish there were more student activities available and more clubs.
I am going to be a sophomore at Bucks County Community College this fall, as far as education goes I give this school an A. Teachers are very knowledgeable and despite being a community college and being looked down on, the courses are just as challenging as any other college so you won't be shocked when you attend another college later on. The greatest downfall of this school would be it's financial aid office, and "advising" system. No matter how early you have your Fafsa done , the school never seems to have it processed in time, and it leaves you scrambling trying to figure out what's going on , and rather or not you can even afford to attend. The "advising" process is the WORST! I've only attended for a full year and I've met with at least 4 different advisers, of whom didn't seem to really help you that much. I've even been told to that I had to take certain courses and then hearing from a new adviser that those course weren't necessary.
