Bucks County Community College Reviews

Bucks County Community College is a school I would recommend to anyone and everyone coming out of high school looking to save some money before transferring to a four-year. With the exception of one, all of my professors have been caring, knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach, and the classes reflect this. There are three campuses that comprise BCCC, so driving an hour to a campus out of range is never necessary. The application and class registration processes couldn't be easier. There's a cafe with all sorts of food available any time, as well as a Starbucks. I noticed that many reviewers tend to rate Bucks negatively in terms of student life/involvement. Bucks has any number of clubs & honors societies with a portion of the building dedicated to them. Yes, a clubs and orgs wing. People who claim there's "nothing to do but go to class and go home" haven't made an effort to look into what Bucks has to offer. You get out of community college what you put into it!
My experience was a good one. Newtown is hard to navigate at first but once you find your way it's great. There are many opportunities there. However I live about 45 minutes from Newtown and because I'm coming to the end of my college career there, all my main classes I can only take at the Newtown campus. It would be really nice to have that opportunity at the Upper Bucks campus since it is so close to home. Overall most of the professors I have had have been amazing and are willing to work with you. They are flexible with your work or emergency schedules. That's one thing I liked the most. Great staff and very helpful and willing to make your college career a good one.
If I could receive my bachelors from BCCC and stay here to complete my degree I definitely would! With my social anxiety it is extremely hard to attend school, but I am very comfortable and confident in this environment.
