What makes Burlington County College the best?

I like that there are small classes so the professors can get to know you on a personal level. That is something that is very difficult to have in a big four year school, so it's really nice to get that experience here. It is also very easy to get around the campus - all the buildings are close to each other.

Why would you recommend it to your friends and family?

I would recommend BCC to friends and family because the location is perfect. The Mount Laurel campus has a lot of things nearby so it is very convenient. Also the small classroom sizes make it easier to have access to the professor. The price, compared to other universities and community colleges - is much more cheaper and affordable.

What makes Burlington County College the best?

Personally, I can say that BCC was the best decision for me because I did not want to end up being in debt coming out of school. BCC has reasonable prices even for international students. I know when I have questions regarding my schedule, visa, classes, money etc, I can ask them and I will get an answer.

In contrast to another school I used to attend people here treat you with respect and they are patient. I'm very happy to have Carmen as my student advisor because I feel comfortable to stop by whenever I have questions or issues. I have met great friends through my classes at BCC.

Why would you recommend it to your friends and family?

I would recommend BCC to my friends/family because I found out the hard way that it is just so much easier and cheaper to go to a Community College and get the general education classes out of the way for not a lot of money instead of paying double or even three times the price a credit you pay at 4-year colleges. I learned this the hard way and I wish somebody would have told me this 2 years ago. BCC offers a wide range of classes which I personally enjoy because I could continue the same program I started at a different school.

Country of origin - Germany
Major - Graphic Design
Future Plans - At the end of September I will be starting the hopefully not too complicated process of getting my work visa since I cannot wait to get a real job at a real company working in a real graphic arts team. Contributing my creative ideas and working with other great creative minds is my dream and BCC has helped me a lot with realizing these. I'm passionate at what I'm doing and even though it took me a little while to figure out what I wanted to do with my life I know that I can do anything I set my mind to!!!

What makes Burlington County College the best?

The cheaper tuition but offering the same quality or even better quality than most other community colleges makes Burlington County College the best.

Why would you recommend it to your friends and family?

I definitely will recommend it to my friends and family. As one of the biggest community colleges in New Jersey, Burlington County College offers better chances to students from the county, the state, other states in the United states, and all over the world due to its affordable tuition for most of students. And it has good relationships with many other four-year colleges, which makes future transfering easier,
