BMCC is a great place to start college.BrightOther
BMCC is a great place to start college. I have had one of the best experiences attending this college. Location is just perfect. It offers classes in 3 different buildings all of them around the same, so you do not have to worry about getting out from one class and getting into the other in less than 5 minutes. My Health Education professors have been helpful and super dedicated. I have even made some long-lasting friendships here. I think you will succeed in this college if you really work hard to achieve your professional goals. You need to remember that it is your responsibility to attend classes, do your schoolwork, and respect your classmates. A professor is only our subject's instructors, not our schoolwork maker. If you want to get an A+ you have to study, study and study! and show up to class every day.

I had been an adult student At BMCCQuite BrightEnglish
I had been an adult student At BMCC from August 1999 until Fall 01. The College gave me the most academic fascinating experience any individual can have in a educational environment. Since I am a foreigner that never study in the United States of America could not even write a paragraph in English. Faculty at the college were great and I was given help and tutoring at all time. BMCC helped find my voice as an adult to be able to write and express myself in writing. I would forever be grateful to BMCC for their love, patience and understanding given to me continuously. Professors as well as any employee there were helpful, kind and provide me with a place to grow intellectual, as well as a job and loans to improve my inability to communicate in English. I truly love BMCC and they are always are in my mind and my heart. Thank You for being so great, helpful and creative in your intellectual endeavors. Forever grateful will honor your college verbally and on writing. Sincerely, Liliana Prina

Your experience will vary depending on the departmentNot so brightEducation
Your experience will vary depending on the department and faculty members. I had some pretty horrible teachers that liked to insult students or be condescending. That was probably a total of 4 teachers in 2 years and a half years (i was part time), that's pretty good to me (according to the experiences i have had afterward). Most of my teachers were supportive and helped me when i needed it. As for the staff, one of the Deans actually helped me with a financial aid mishap and another professor helped me get math tutoring that i really needed. I also had a few professors encourage me to to more work because he saw my grade was slipping a bit and one of them said "Please go get your Bachelor's!" so you don't have to be a number, you just have to either participate, talk to the professors, give them a sign that you care. If you don't care, why should they? Some of the students that go there are friendly but a lot are not (i'm sure this changes too). The school is full of people who just got out of high school and are expecting easy grades by slacking. The cafeteria is pretty bad and yes full of kids being obnoxious but there are places to go and do some work like the library or quiet study. Forget about the escalators. The classrooms, restrooms etc. could use some fixing up too so the school is not aesthetically appealing. The school prepares you for what is about to come if you decide to go for a 4 year that is. I am currently in my senior year of an undergrad program and it is semi difficult but if i hadn't attended BMCC, i would have probably dropped out if i had entered my current school as a freshman.. I know of worse community colleges, BMCC is not that bad. Some of the professors are forced to dumb down the curriculum because of most of the students. I learned quite a bit and a few classes were fun to take (look for the nice/silly professors).
