Bucks County Community College gave me the resources and abilities to aspire to where I want to be. A very special thank you to Dr. Sullivan who was always available and willing to help me whenever I needed it. He made learning and his classroom setting fun while challenging us to do our absolute best! Bucks County helped me get into Holy Family university's Fast Track accelerated BSN RN program. I owe a lot to Bucks county and the incredible staff they have. I highly recommend BCCC to everyone who talks about going to college.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Ignore what your dad will say, apply for scholarships. It will make paying for everything much easier. He went to college over 30 years ago, and he does not know what he is talking about. He will think that going to community college will be enough to reduce the cost to a reasonable amount, but he will be totally wrong. Additionally, what he will want is not the same thing as what you will want. Already having $10,000 will make convincing him that the college you want to go to is the right college much easier. Try to find a job that pays more than bussing and dishwashing. There are other people your age making twice as much as you waitering, so finding a job like that is not impossible. The less dependent you will be on loans the better.

    Well so far I have only been there for one semester and all is going well. The only thing that i consider the worst thing is the parking.

Other than that I have no complaints about the school, yet.
