    barstow community colllege is excellent for students fresh out of high school who are ready to begin their college education. the administration, registration, and financial aid staff are more than helpful, and i have not had any problems getting every class i need. however, the class schedule is not avaible until the day of registration, and many of the teachers are difficult to communicate with or understand.

    Campus Safety

    BCC supports and provides a safe environment. There are designated smoking areas and crosswalks along with their no weapons policy.

    Clubs and Activities

    The drama club is particularly fine, they provide almost as much events as the ASB. ASB is another great club to join of you want to get more associated around the school.

    Great for these types of students

    If you love the theatre and performing arts then BCC's drama department is one of the best in California. For those who want to go into the medical field, all it takes is to gain your general education and experience before you can transfer to some great medical schools and/or programs, such as Loma Linda University.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The drama department will host a Zombie Walk in which students can dress up as zombies and walk around the town. There's also a secret parking lot in which students will find easy parking on a daily basis.

    Bang for the buck

    There are play productions from our drama department and bake sales as well.

    What to do for fun

    There's a Recreational Room where students can lounge and play games with friends. There's always events taking place consisting of plays from our drama department, art shows, and even bake sales. Students can partake in other events such as pageants and our Halloween Special, the Zombie Run.

    Food and Dining

    The cafertria, otherwise known as The Grill provides some of the best food for a reasonable price. The service is rather slow, but the food makes up for the wait. The eating area is comfortable and there's even a Recreational Room where you can eat and play a game with friends.

    Dorm Life

    BCC does not offer dorms for it is simply a community college. There is an established neighbor nearby called the College Heights, however, any resident of the city can live there. Most students of BCC live at home or rent out their own place.

    Academic Rigor

    Most students that attended here go off to attend four year universities after having completed their general education. Students can even choose to earn their bachelor's degree at this college as well. Our teachers are among the best around, and the courses are well worth your money.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to get a head start on furthering your education then attend BCC, for it is a great way to get started on establishing your career goal. The campus isn't too large so it's very easy to find your way around. Most of the classes are easy and transferable.

    Barstow is a small town of 22,000 residents. It is the Desert and it gets very hot. Rent and Home Purchase are extremely low. This were you get your bang for the Buck. Not a lot of activities, so you will need to drive out the area for entertainment. This is the home for Multiple Military and Air Field. Nature is at your front door with Coyotes, Rabbits, Snakes etc. Remember, we are on their territory. Lots of Land, not too many homes, more apartments and mobile homes than any. Yes there is a Wal-Mart, Stater Bros, remember its a small community. It only took me 25 mins to circle the entire community.

    What to do for fun

    Plenty of sports to choose from. What's yours.
