What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Bergen Community College is a great way to start off your college experience and the expense is way better than a four year university. Also people at Bergen seem to be very friendly and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've had a great time at Bergen Community College. The professors that I had were all informative and thorough with their teaching. I would find myself speaking about our lectures and thinking about them for the rest of the day. The campus is easy to navigate and clean. I felt confident in getting from one building to another, and/or from one wing to another. I've accomplished finishing my associates degree here, enabling me to obtain a bachelor's at another institution in the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bergen Community College is a college located in Paramus. New Jersey. It's a two-year public community college founded in 1965. The college has three different locations, Paramus being the main campus with another in Lyndhurst, and Hackensack. Most people graduate and then transfer to a four year while other graduate with certificate's and associate degrees. The health professions building is new and amazing with modern technology and tools. In the health professions the programs may be accredited. For instance I attend the Sonography/Ultrasound program if that interests anyone. The college is diverse and people are friendly in case you get lost or confused. Overall the teachers are also very kind and stick to their office hours. If you're unsure about professors you can check ratemyprofessors.com to see reviews written by actual students. Although it is a community college that doesn't mean its a crazy and not a good education. You will still receive a good education and even other possible opportunities for instance a job. Frequently they host job or careers fairs and other events. Be sure to attend them. Good luck and hopefully you love the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Bergen Community College, I've learned so much here since I've started. Every professor I've ever had is more then helpful and wants their students to learn and succeed. I wish they offered further degrees such as bachelor programs because I would love to stay here as long as possible.

I really love this school and all of the staff are extremely helpful in guiding you to whatever field you're interested in. The professors care deeply about their student's​ success and are always available for help. The locations of the campuses and flexibility to take classes on any of the campuses is great, all of them are super convenient.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Bergen Community College has amazing classes and professors but when it comes to administration, your better if administrating yourself. They have a lot of students running students and sometimes that’s not the best when your trying to get more in-depth information.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The highlight of my 2 and a half years there was the parking. I've heard the worst things about university parking, like paying 200 for a permit and not guaranteed a parking spot so this is heaven. So much parking! I was a commuter and I wasn't too invested in the school activities. I either had work before class or right after, so my involvement was extremely limited. The times I did attend activities, they were for the art club, which wasn't handled very well. But there were a bunch of clubs for a variety of people, so there generally was something for everybody. Financial aid was the biggest headache ever, but with the new self service, it was easy to stay on track of your financial aid, how much you had to pay out of pocket, and a general estimation of how much you would need for supplies. But my best advice I'll ever give you is to immediately sit down and have a chat with this one counselor. Brian was THE BEST counselor. He helped me get a rough outline of what I SHOULD do at Bergen if you're just going for Gen Ed requirements and then transferring out. He gave me a list of schools that Bergen had a partnership with (Like Fairleigh Dickinsons $15k partnership scholarship) and even helped me get out of bergen faster (CLEPP exam will help you a lot!) He even gave me a list of professors to speak with about my career goals that relate to my specific field of interest. Most of my professors were super chill or really invested in their craft. My Art History professors were THE BEST and were really interested in their subject and were nice and understanding. Ratemyprofessor is your best friend, especially if you are just doing gen ed classes. Helps you weed out the worst professors to take. I didn't do that my first semester and my writing 101 prof was the worst.Some professors are hit or miss so learn from your mistakes. Overall my experience was decent. If you check your email constantly, use self service, and ask for advice, you will do fine.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is pretty big for a community college. It has most of the things one would need for studying and growing as an overall student who plan to transfer to a four year college or who are here to get an associates degree. There are plenty of activities and sports that the students would enjoy doing. Classes also are better as the professors try their best to make the students know what they are studying by making them take quizzes and doing projects.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bergen is a great community college to go to. the classes and class sizes are amazing since they are small and since the school is small all teachers are always accessible and they know your names. Since it is a community college no housing is offered but it offers great deals for the daily commuter that do not have cars. I play volleyball and the girls and the coaches are great and I'm so happy to have been given the opportunity to make such great future life long friends.
