I just graduated with my associate's degree this last year and am now attending Idaho State University. Overall, I liked this school while attending it. Everyone was really nice and the class sizes were good. If I had to say one negative about the school, it would be the difficulty of it. I found the school to be easy compared to university. I ended Barstow College with a 3.98 GPA. I felt that Barstow did not prepare students for the rigor of university. Barstow Community College kind of holds their student's hand through. But, that is why this college has a low transfer rate. So, if you plan on transferring to a university just be prepared.

Aylin - 12/11/2016

I am a very involved student and see many aspects of the campus whether it is academics or through social interaction. The people are kind and there is little to violence or arguments except for the occasional intellectual debate on current events. We hardly protest and are a very content group. However, I wish there was more club representation at the college. Those who are in clubs are very active and really know how to engage the students, myself included. Overall, my experience here has been a good one.

I graduated high school and now I want to graduate college with a degree in nursing. I filled out many scholarships and still no luck.
