I just finished my first semester at Borough of Manhattan Community College and it was a better experience than I expected it to be. You definitely have to earn your grade, work hard, focus on school work but also make sure to stay active on campus because although many people go here it can be hard to make friends, so try joining a club or two. BMCC also tries to keep students involved around campus by having student events 2-3 times a week, and offer great opportunities for students to attend different events around the city that they might not know of. Many people say that it's not possible to graduate from here in two years, if you fall behind (in terms of credits) be willing to study abroad or take winter/summer classes to catch up! BMCC is truly what you make of it.
Review CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College
CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College is a beautiful place with an amazing professors.First of all lets start with security is good safe and trustworthy.Professors are an amazing but yeah some of them aren't so much friendly and not understanding.Classes are well build and with well equipment.Cafeteria is alright foods are little expensive but if person have a job they can bare.People do not some in the campus which is really good.The college is at Downtown Manhattan Tribeca which is an amazing place with coffee shops , tea places , cheap food around a campus, and transportation is okay too. If you live far train stations are near 7-10 mins walk.Library is amazingly quite , people respect one another. Especially in quite area. Well If person would go there , they would understand as much as i do.
Any school is what you make of it. At this point in your educational career, a teacher can not teach you anything. Rather, point you in the right direction and enable you to think and foster ideas. Here is one problem with BMCC: you will find that a majority of students are not thinking how they should be! These are people who are caught up in something and are not applying themselves! I personally found it hard to feel inspired in class. For example, in English, I found that many of my classmates were not serious and did not try to intellectually contribute to the lecture. I found it insulting that these students do not know what an education can do for an individual, aside from work. There are quality teachers at BMCC but you will soon discover that because the admissions are so fluid and the admission standards are low, the caliber of teaching weakens. If you take your time to create a real relationship with your professor, you can discover that they are incredibly intelligent and full of stories! That is, if you are in a class with a good professor. There are some teachers here who, like some students, have fallen through the cracks. I find the school to be very lonely because it is very big and diverse and spread out on 4-5 blocks.Plenty of clubs to join and opportunities to grab. There is a tremendous amount of room for growth, personally and intellectually. I think I made a great choice coming here because I find many of the classes to be easy, and it gives me time to teach myself at my own pace.
