What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my visit to Brookdale CC. I met the baseball coach and he was a very nice guy, caring and compassionate. I enjoyed the hospitality and the campus itself. When I went for my visit I noticed the baseball field getting redone and a karate tournament and that shows how much the campus is used and liked for people in the area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm only here to save money. You only save on tuition, everything else is way overpriced. Class sizes are nice because it's small enough to feel like the professors notice you, but it'd mostly people that don't want to go to college yet their parents are forcing them too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brookdale Community College is just that: a community college. Some are just there to learn (me), some are there to save money before going to a four-year (also me), some are there because they had nothing else going on and their parents forced them to go. Quite honestly, I went into Brookdale with low expectations, and while it is no Ivy League institution, I was surprised at the academic level of the classes. There are some easy A courses, but I have learned a lot, and some classes have even been slightly challenging. The campus is actually pretty nice, and the library has a decent selection if that is your thing. The cafeteria and the campus store are kind of expensive, but they are there if you need them. The quality of the staff varies widely; some of the adjuncts are difficult to understand and have little interest in actual student success, while others are excellent at instruction and heavily invested in student success, even though this is just their side gig. The full-time professors are of high quality, for the most part. The advisors are kind of hit-and-miss; some know what they are doing and want to help, others know less than you do and just want you to leave. The campus roads and parking lots are danger zones, so drive and walk extra carefully. I have heard secondhand reports of drug-use, theft, and other crimes, but have not actually seen any of this, and feel pretty safe for the most part. If I had the cash, would I have chosen a four-year over Brookdale? Absolutely. Being that I don’t, I am glad that Brookdale was an option, and I am glad to have chosen it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brookdale Community College is alright if you want to begin higher education but are unsure what direction you want to pursue. It is a community college, what more can I say? I found the average difficulty level somewhere between easy and moderately difficult, depending on the class. If you take your studies seriously, you will find yourself slightly challenged and learn some new things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brookdale is generally a great place to go to learn, very flexible and convenient. Some teachers are always available while others tend to only be able to contact in class. There are clubs but they aren't advertised well. Most talking is done in class, and then you leave. It is a hard place to make friends if your class isn't interactive. Most of the time I got to class do my work and go home, which isn’t like me. I’m a very social person, but I found it hard to socialize here being as though in class you have to focus on your work and after class you kind of just go home because there is no on campus housing. Curriculums are good, throughout my Brookdale experience I have had some very amazing teachers, but I have also had some teachers who are not so good. What I mean by this is although they teach the class their lectures don’t help me with the tests or quizzes and most often I would have to re-teach myself the lessons for class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a good school to get and Associates degree. They offer a wide variety of majors and classes to take. The teachers there are helpful and are invested in the students and want the best for them. The school offers other services like extra help and peer tutoring and other things to help students be successful.

Has everything I need for a community college. The campus is nice.The teachers are accessible. The location is a few miles from me so I can't complain. I started coming here as high school freshman and I didn't feel out of place at all. I highly recommend it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! The opportunities and resources provided by Brookdale are amazing. What I love the most is the range of choice students have when it comes to classes, student organizations, study abroad opportunities, research, and more. The classes are small and the students get the chance to get to know one another and their professors.

Brookdale community college is a great stepping stone into the 4 year degree world. With professors who are extremely knowledgable in their respective fields, you couldn't ask for a better starter to your academic career. Always read the teachers academic review on rate your professor- they are extremely accurate and will help pick the teacher that wants to see u succeed and has the tools to do so!
