What I love about my school which is, Baltimore City Community College is the several reasons why. First, the staff is very welcoming, have great hospitality and a great sense of humor might I add. Secondly, the professors are very educated on their chosen fields of study and is very patient with their students. I have friends that attend the "BIG" schools quote on quote and they tell me that they fee like a number. At BCCC you will not feel like that here. Lastly, I feel as though BCCC needs to have more shuttle buses run more frequent for the students that's my only critique!
