I remember when I first came to Bergen Community College. I was in the school band in middle school who was was participating in the music and arts festival. I didn\\\'t get to explore the whole college at the time and I only remember going in the main building and the technology center. A couple years later, I was graduating high school and was going to Bergen Community College in Paramus. It was my first time coming back to the campus in 6 years and the campus is a lot bigger than I remembered. Ever since I enrolled, I made new college friends, met nice professor and enjoyed the food they serve. Before, I wanted to go to a four year school, but I am happy I chose to go to Bergen Community College. Bergen Community College is one of the best colleges in the state of New Jersey.
Bergen is an awesome community college. Unlike some other community colleges, you can actually get a legitimate two-year education. They have many amenities to help you do your best in school and actually care about you succeeding. It's definitely known as the best community college in NJ and is rated highly throughout the country.
Not all of the students are the brightest, but as long as you have your head on straight, you'll get to where you want to go without any problems. Also, the students are usually in and out quickly since there is no on campus housing. Due to that, it's hard to make friends. If you are looking to meet new people, join a few clubs and things should flow from there.
Good luck at BCC!
The upgraded facilities are nice enough. Some buildings have paper thin classroom walls making it easy to hear everything going on around you. The main building on campus has a prison-like feeling to it. There is constant security and police around you to make you feel safe in an the already safe area.
Bergen Community College (Paramus) is a large campus, equipped with state of the art facilities. Alumni is extremely diverse and friendly. Professors are always willing to help in case of any problems faced by students. BCC is also filled with a variety of clubs to be involved in.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Bergen Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
My advice to my younger self would be to have some patience. At that age, my mindset was to do as little school as possible so I could start working full-time and make money as soon as possible. So instead of going to college, I tried to cut corners by going to a 10 month trade school. Let?s just say that the only thing I have to show from going to that school is a large school bill, for which I am still trying to pay. Having a college degree is invaluable. Most companies will choose an individual with a degree over someone with experience.
If I would have been able to warn myself about these facts, I could have saved myself a lot of time and money.
My classmates are a mixed bunch of people coming from different backgrounds, levels of education, nationalities, and ages.
There are plenty of classmates that I have spoken to that have no interest in how well they perform in school; they attend BCC because their parents force them to go to school. But there are also a lot of very successful and motivated students here. The library is always packed with people reading, or studying, as well as socializing. I'd say that BCC's stereotype is 50% accurate.
I believe any kind of person should attend Bergen Community College. It is a very diverse college. Not much competition. Everyone is basically focused on their own thing. This school has many clubs and activities that everyone can do. Not many community colleges have sports but Bergen Community College does. I am actually a student athlete, I play softball.
Bergen Community College has a very diverse student body and an outsanding faculty and staff that guide you and keep you focused on what needs to be done.
For a community college the school has a massive mix of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. There are about 80+ different nationalities involved with the school. The education is coming from professors who have studied at world class universities from all around the world. The school is just about right in its size. Peoples reactions towards the school might pass it off as an average school of education, but until you've stepped inside one of the classrooms you will realize the type of learning environment a person is in. This is a fantastic center for public education and for students who wish to transfer to a four year institution after the completion of two years at Bergen.
Diversity. There are alot musicians and musically inclined people on campus. Great nursing program.
Some of the classes in BCC are not challenging enough and just feel like an extension to high school.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is a 2 year college and many people do not take 2 year colleges seriously.
Student Body Association
The diversity of the students is one because you get insight on so many ethnic cultures and subcultures. The faculty are really passionate about their field and very supportive and help students who are interested in pursuing that field. It has agreements with many great schools such as NYU and Columbia through Honor's programs. THERE IS STUDY ABROAD FOR HONOR'S STUDENTS!
I wish i knew what my parents have lived through and how much they want me and my sister to have easier lives, which is why they always encourage us to study and maintain our gpa's. I realize now that through hard work and getting good grades i will eventually obtain my goal to teach special needs children. I plan on staying focused and reaching my goal someday and making my parents proud.
Those who do not know their purpose there.
i brag about how easy the teachers are to talk to and how their really concerned about our welfare. I also brag about the various mentoring programs and tutoring programs available. There is absolutely no room for failure with all the opportunity for help available. I love my school and it is a great stepping stone for me before I attend university.
