It’s a good place to test the waters of college. It helps prepare you for four year colleges by giving you more of a foundation than high school. The teachers at Brookdale take pride in helping their students. There’s also many avenues you can use to get academic help. Overall i think it’s a great school and it helps you save some money.

Brianna - 01/26/2020

Its a nice school to start off with if you're looking to save money through classes. They have a big focus on their nursing degrees and they're classes are very good. I've been here three years and I'm going to transfer in the fall, Brookdale definitely prepared me for what I will face in a university.
