The Community College of Baltimore County Reviews
I have attended CCBC on and off for a few years. Their course selection is great; between their three main campuses, numerous extension centers, and online courses you're sure to find the classes you need and times to fit your schedule. I've only taken courses at the main campus (Catonsville) and the Owings Mills Extension Center. The OM Extension Center was brand new when I took classes there and was conveniently located near my job at the time. While I took classes at the Catonsville campus they were undergoing a lot of remodelling in the Math and Science Hall, although I haven't returned to see the completed project. The campuses are very nice, well maintained, and felt safe. Campus security is always making rounds, in addition to plenty of cameras and "blue lights" throughout the campus, I felt safe going to and from class on my own--even those late release classes that ended at 10pm!
I've been enrolled in dual enrollment with CCBC for three years. It has been the experience I expected from community college, with difficult but manageable core classes and many resources to help students succeed through their classes. My experience with their disability support services has also been fairly positive (I am a student with Autism Spectrum Disorder and multiple learning disabilities) and I was able to get accommodations without any issues or any discrimination. I have faced those challenges before in other schools, so that was an important factor in my overall experience with them. Their Essex campus is well managed, and has many areas to study. Their testing center is very responsive and helpful and I have had no issues scheduling and taking exams there. Overall it was not anything remarkable, but a suitable, affordable community college.
It is a very good community college. They take your education very seriously. They have good sports such as, soccer, baseball and so much others. The professors are very educated and love what they do. The food is very delicious! They have Starbucks on campus. The library is open to all students with so many computers and books.
