PURPOSE
The whole purpose of the Community College was to open more doors and make the transition easier. Instead, I found myself wasting a year here. I couldn't personally stand the college or the surroundings at neither Lawrence Crossing or Main Campus. The places are very stagnating and depressing.

CLASSES & FACULTY
The secondary campuses do not carry many courses. A lot of the time you have to commute to Butler County if you wish to complete an associate degree program with them.

I've met a great deal of teachers who simply don't care unless you're in their top 5%
There's a few instructors who genuinely care, but the facility itself isn't worth the time.
SOCIAL LIFEWithout dorms- On any of the campus sites- Social life is kind of non-existent. Especially since it's small town Pennsylvania. The students of Butler County Community College's main campus stick to their own groups as well. If you're looking for friends, this is not the place to be.

This is a nice school to help you get into a secondary school. This is cheap so it will help save you money. Alot of the credits transfer to another school!

Question
I applied to BC3 in 2008 for theirQuite BrightNursing
I applied to BC3 in 2008 for their 2009 nursing program and I was taking pre-nursing classes during the Fall of 2008. I had to take some classes such as chemistry and biology because it had been over four years since I took them in high school. In order to take the chemistry class, I had to take at least pre-algebra alongside chemistry. I was told that if I maintained at least a 2.5 GPA and had at least 12 credits, that I would be eligible for acceptance into the 2009 nursing program. I finished my Fall semester with a 4.0 GPA at all of my BC3 classes (chemistry, pre-algebra, and general psychology) and a 3.8 in the anatomy class I was taking at Penn State (I transferred this grade to BC3). My grades were outstanding and I was a dedicated student, yet I was DECLINED from the nursing program because I was told that my pre-algebra class DID NOT count as a credit course toward my GPA - which was a direct contradiction to what the DEAN OF NURSING told me in August 2008. The Dean of Nursing herself told me that I could take these classes and establish a new GPA with them and that everything would be fine.To sum it up, I was given false information by the staff which caused me to waste my time and money on this joke of a school. I would not recommend BC3 to any student who is serious about their education.
