Bunker Hill Community College Reviews
Bunker Hill is by far the best community college in the greater Boston area! It has more course selections and facilities than all other community colleges in the city. The student body is very diverse, especially in age and lifestyle. You meet lots of people who are on completely different paths. And it makes the experience more interesting! Of course, there are no dorms (so no parties), but there are a lot of clubs on campus to get involved. If you're into the arts like me, there's a drama department and a new theater space in Charlestown. The dining area is quite small, but there are enough tables and seating areas for everyone to feel cozy! The classes are quite good, and most professors really care about their students. The campus is always calm. There is a train and a bridge nearby, so there isn't much surrounding the actual school. But the school is easily accessible by car or train. It's a great school for anyone on a budget or looking to explore their career options!
One thing I liked about Bunker Hill Community College is that it gave me the opportunity to do a culinary major. Most culinary schools have tuition that is more than $40,000 and that was something neither my family members or I could afford. Having the opportunity to advance in my knife skills, cooking methods, and knowledge of a real-life kitchen has made me grateful for what is to become. All my teachers have continuously said they are not there to fail our students, they are there to help us succeed. That type of encouragement and opportunities, led to me graduating in the summer of 2020. Since Bunker Hill is a community college, I'm able to transfer my credits to get my bachelor's degree!
I am currently taking online summer courses, and will be taking more in the fall. Bunker Hill offered laptops to student to make remote classes easier. It's very easy to get in contact with professors, advising and other staff. I am having regular check-ins with an advisor about my progress and class performance. Everything is very well planned out and simple. I am really impressed by Bunker Hill!
