I think and feel that, considering the current pandemic, the online live classes are extremely intense and informative, and so far the professor's I have had are patient and friendly and always ready to help with ensuring that the students are working and getting through the semester appropriately.
I really enjoy and feel blessed that I am able and have the opportunity to be a student of Brookdale Community College. It's an amazing school with all types of people from different backgrounds and culture. I love it.
I loved the experience. It was very fulfilling and all the professors interact with their students greatly and make an effort to help them. It's a community college, so it is expected that students would have low expectations of the facilities and the place at first. But I am glad that I am an alumni of BCC.
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.
Brookdale Community College was the perfect fit for me. I was not quite ready to apply for a four year school right out of high school, and Brookdale was the best choice. I became involved with many clubs on campus, which made my experience memorable. If anyone is interested in attending a community college, I would highly suggest Brookdale.

If I were able to go back in time and give myself advice about college I would tell my self to go to community college. After high school I wanted to get out and be on my own, so I went away to a state college and lived on campus. Living on my own I was not able to balance my time, get my work done or be on any normal schedule. After my first year away from home I decided to come back home and try community college out. Brookdale has been able to truly prepare me for my future and pointed me in the right direction.
Many of the classmates that I have been around are irresponsible, lazy and unmotivated, regardless of what the professors try to do to get them involved in class activites.
The multiple locations.
All the oppurtunities the school has to offer. The events they hold, and the education system. You can really get one-on-one time with your professor and actually learn and understand the material.
It offers a multitude of options when trying to choose your field of study. From medical to arts, from a 2 year transferable degree so you can continue on to a 2 year career degree so you are able to enter into the workforce with the education and skills you need. The campus offeres a community feel to encourage students, it offers a feeling all are welcome and doesn't make a student feel overwhelmed. Of the various schools visited, Brookdale offered the most comfort and selection for my needs and goals at this time.
Brookdale Community college is a diverse college where dreams, success, and development of one to be prepared of what is yet to come is brought to each student.
I wish that i would have known that there are not many events that take place during the night. I also would have liked to know that no clubs meet after two in the afternoon. This is because i had a full time job during the morning and better part of the afternoon leaving only the night for classes and activities.

Brookdale average class size is small (30/1), so students that prefer bigger classes shouldn't apply. Also, students who do not wish to be bother by tedious college transfer process, or student who like to have on-campus housing experience, should not attend a community college.
I like the diversity of the majors and class options. As I am planning to transfer, I like that alot of the classes that are available to me are classes that are offered at the other institution I would like to attend. Knowing that they are transferable and I am not taking wastefull classes is very important to me.
Overall i would have to say school i am attending is great because of the abundance resources they have to offer. It is a great environment to learn and meditate on the school work. The only bad thing about the school which could be consider as the worst, is in fact a problem in all colleges. The worst thing about colleges is the books ordeal. However, like i said that is widespread issue

Studying in the math lab. Thats pretty much all I do at brookdale
The Engineering teachers are great I have no complaints there. Brookdale doesn't feel like a real college cause there isnt much campus life. It feels like high school just better.
Brookdale students are know for never hanging out in the college. They go to class and go directly back home. Totally accurate
