    Great for these types of students

    Those who want to get a degree and are willing to sacrifice to get it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be ready to learn, work hard, and have a good attitude.

    Bang for the buck

    The services they offer outside the class make the programs a great value.

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere is nice because everyone here is making sacrifices to be here, and wants to be here, so you have a lot of mature aults and teenagers on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    My classes so far have been very informative. The instructors are top-notch so far, and have a genuine interest in student success.

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe on the campus and have never had an incident

    Bang for the buck

    To get an associates degree here it is much cheaper than starting in a university to get your bachelors degree.

    What to do for fun

    They always have things to do today like movies, comedians or gatherings.

    Food and Dining

    The food is very good and is always fresh. There is enough room for everyone to sit in the cafeteria and it is always clean.

    Dorm Life

    Does not apply to this school

    Academic Rigor

    I think that most of the classes are very well put together. The classes for the nursing program are very hard but are very beneficial.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get good grades. Get help in classes if you are not doing well. Ask for help if you need it.

    I like this school because a lot of the instructors are really helpful and seem to genuinely care about you. I also am pleased that it is an accredited college so I will be able to find a good job when I graduate. This school also has a lot of programs for a person to choose from which makes it easier to find a career if you are uncertain what you would like to do.

    What to do for fun

    They have lots of after school activities going on if you don't mind driving back to campus for them.

    Food and Dining

    The vending machines are a bit pricey but the pizza is great!

    Dorm Life

    No dorms, you live on your own.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're going to be transferring credits it's super easy to get all your credits to transfer to a university, just watch the math but if you know you're going to be transferring it's easy to pick the right math.

    BTC has a great Early Childhood program and a majority of my experiences with the gen ed department have been positive. It's not too hard to pick classes that will transfer over to the local university, in fact 90% of my classes are eligible to transfer. These past 2 years have been very positive ones and I would recommend BTC to anyone looking to balance work and school while taking online classes and in person classes that are mostly hands on.
