Honestly, this is the best place to start for people who don't know exactly what they want to do in life or for internationals. Everyone at BMCC is motivated to help you graduate as soon as you can, many resources, programs, and opportunities. Some Professors are the gems! They want to give back to the community and truly care about you. The campus is great, facilities are open and clean, with lots of light. The community is so diverse, it is hard not to make friends here. And student life is wonderful.
An important thing to remember - you need to put in the effort and get the most from this school. Do your best in classes, ask questions to Professors, talk to people, join a club, participate in programs, apply for scholarships and you will have the best experience.
One downside of the school - a lot of students come here and think studying will be easy and they don't need to do anything. Those are the ones who are unhappy with the school, and sometimes you'll need to work together.

Some of the professors here are OUTSTANDING! Professor's like Professor Drabo, Professor Havercome, Professor Milkidas, Professor Cook, Professor Nartey, Professor Ridley, Professor Smith, and Professor Lemekh. THE ADMINISTRATION IS HORRIBLE. People in high positions such as Chairman's for departments are distasteful, disrespectful, and unprofessional in emails. administration does not follow up with each other nor does their job. This was A HORRIBLE FIRST COLLEGE EXPERIENCE. IF you're FROM NYC SAVE YOURSELF THE STRESS AND DO NOT ATTEND! IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND BMCC FOCUS ON YOUR CLASSES SO YOU CAN GET YOUR GPA UP AND LEAVE!
In my opinion, Borough of Manhattan Community College is one of the best places for those young people who recently graduated from school or, for any case,for every person who are planning to start pursuing their future career. It is not only the place where students could start communicate and gain knowledge in any field, but also a place where student will never stay alone! I can talk with confidence about that because I experienced a lot of support from professors and staff. It is nice and important for new students who are recently graduated or those who recently moved to the U.S.A like me and don't have any idea about american education system and seek for help. Yhe Panter Station was created for this reason. Every BMCC member seems to be very kind and polite that always cheers me up and gives a confidence to ask more and be aware about college's news and opportunities. Also, the college offers a list of clubs, a gym, a swimming pool, tutoring and many other activities.
