Chrissy - 07/29/2021

I feel that it depends on what you make of it. There are opportunities to be had if you want them. The education is great if you want it. It can be easy to slack and get by, but some of the professors really are excellent and give great lectures. I wish there were more clubs, but it is a small school.

Nekyah

Its perfect for people who just need a boost before transferring to a four year or for those who are in pursuit of technical degrees or certifications. The campus is safe and very easy to navigate. Along with that they have amazingly friendly. I think it is an amazing place to continue and also finish your education.

Alissa

Baton Rouge Community College is a great community college with small classes and helpful professors that are very knowledgable and passionate about what their teaching.

Bria

The class sizes are perfect. You are able to have your professors know your name and be able to get one on one time with them. Like every school there are problems. It may take time for some professors to put in grades, don't be surprised if you wait until the last week of the semester before knowing your final grade.
