CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College Reviews

Do not let the reputation or rumors of a community college bring YOU down. Trust me, I used to think that BMCC would not be as good as a regular 4 year college. Let me tell you how wrong I was when I started here as an incoming freshmen. I wish I didn't let my friends give me the mindset that a community college will only waste your time. It is the opposite. Borough of Manhattan Community College is one of the best choices I've made when I was transitioning from a high school graduate. This college will literally prepare you when you transfer to a 4 year college. Their ASAP program will strive to make you work for your upcoming semesters and will do a monthly check up to see how you are doing. They are there to guide you and offer any help necessary. Some of the professors here are truly the best, these professors will individually care about every student. So, please don't waste their time and actually care about your classes!

My overall experience with BMCC was quite amazing. What made my experience so unique was the spectacular, hard-working, dedicated professors that I had! Some professors really challenged me to never give up! And that really impacted my life. I feel BMCC is totally underrated and the professors do not get enough credit for how great they are! The campuses has improved drastically and I love the new modern look. Essentially BMCC is an awesome school and we should get more funding so that it never closes! -God Bless
The best thing about BMCC is that classes are small and you have a lot of learning resources. Professors are always willing to help you, and since their classes are small, they have more time to help you personally. School has everything that you can imagine, such as cafeteria, gym, pool, library, bookstore, quiet area, learning resource centre, offices that help you with transfers, scholarships, employment, subway cards and many more!
