    BCC is great for students that are still trying to figure out what they want to do with their life. I was on the fence my ehole high school career, and BCC really helped me pinpoint what I love to do, and what I'm best at, which is Writing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply as soon as you can! It is important to meet with an advisor so that he or she can get you on the right track. Be sure to only take on what you can handle. I started out with only taking 4 classes and now I'm ready to take on 5 this semester.

    Financially strapped students- at $80 a credit for Florida residents, almost anyone can afford tuition. Students without direction- for those that have no intended major yet but know they want to go to college, BCC allows for an environment to try new things and (hopefully) find your career path. Less-than-stellar high school students- if your high school transcript isn't what you'd like it to be or you got denied acceptance at your school of choice, BCC is a great place to go to bulk up your resume. Upon graduation from BCC, you are GUARANTEED a spot at a Florida public four-year college, and your application at all schools no longer has to go through the 'first time in college' office, and the office for current students can be more forgiving in their acceptances.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't buy your books at the bookstores on campus- they can be ridiculously pricey and they make you think that it's the only place to buy them. That's not true, just jot down the author's name and the title and the edition and buy them elsewhere- there are loads of good places to get them online and usually you can get a good used one for about half the price of a well-worn one at BCC.

    Bang for the buck

    There's no denying that BCC is ridiculously cheap, and the classes aren't bad at all- plus the course catalog is huge, so you're bound to find something you're interested in.

    Am enjoying being here

    Being a community college, BCC doesn't offer many of the same things a traditional college would in that there is no housing offered and the 'college town' environment is nonexistent. The array of students is great in that you may find high school students on campus just as easily as you would middle-aged students, but you will only occasionally run across a student with big ambitions. If this isn't important to you, it isn't a factor, and some of the professors are certainly fantastic and the small-school environment provides for a good experience with them, but there are also the surly group that aspired to greater than teaching at a community college that can occasionally take their passive-aggressive frustration out on their students.

    Am learning a lot

    Most of the classes you'll take at BCC are the basic classes you'd take in the first two years of any four-year degree program, so you're not likely to find much that is specific to your desired school of study actually on the path towards your degree. As is the case with most of the freshman and sophomore course load, the classes can be a bit redundant in accordance with your high school curriculum, but it does do a good job of getting you through the classes you'd need anywhere pretty quickly and hassle-free. The classes are often very easy to pass, but as far as actual retention of information goes... don't expect a whole lot.

    Great for these types of students

    If you liked the size of your high school class, BCC would be perfect for you. You will never have to worry about missing something the teacher said or the class being so crowded you can not even think straight. BCC would also be great for the kind of student that does not like to be far away from home. With so many BCC campuses, it would be hard to find a way to live far away from BCC. Other then those options, BCC is really perfect for anybody.

    Tips for prospective students

    When thinking about the future remember your text books. Never buy them from the book store, unless absolutely necessary. Buying books online is a great way to hold onto those dollars. Another topic to think about is to think deeper into your future. When you have finished here at BCC, just remember, you can always transfer to UCF if you want to continue this long and perilous journey of education.

    Bang for the buck

    A person would absolutely obtain their money's worth at BCC. I myself like to take as many classes as I possibly can. For me to take five classes it costs me nothing. The price between a giant university and BCC is very different to say the least. Even if you so desired to go to UCF, going to BCC first allows you to directly transfer to this school. I receive a whole lot more than what I give to BCC.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am defiantly enjoying being at BCC. I enjoy knowing that I can freely speak to my teachers about the class. I enjoy knowing that my friends, instead of being far away from me on a huge campus, are right here next to me. I enjoy knowing that I am getting a great education only ten minutes away from me. I enjoy seeing all my friends from high school, here where I am. I enjoy attending BCC.

    Am learning a lot

    At Brevard Community College, you can learn a lot to say the least. In high school, learning seemed so tedious and boring because it was common knowledge. Here at BCC, learning means learning, not sitting in class anticipating when the teacher finally says, See you next time!. If you do not understand something, just ask! Every single teacher that I have had always asks the class, Does anyone have any questions?. For the first time it seems these teachers actually want you to learn something and really care about your learning experience. When attending a huge college full of who knows how many people, if you miss something the teacher says, well, too bad. There is a more than good chance, you will never even speak to your teacher, even if you try. I would much rather go through college knowing I learned all I could, instead of knowing I missed too much information.

    BCC is great for students who like to be social. It's not the greatest for a lone student like me, because almost everyone sitting down or hanging around is with other people. There are a lot of places to lounge around and drink some coffee, and just relax. I just get in, attend my class and get out of there as fast as I can to avoid confronting staff or a student I don't want to remember from high school. If you are like this, you won't enjoy it so much. As far as I can tell, there are a lot of clubs and things to do while being a student. You'll get access to a school e-mail account, the library and the computers, and other things. There is a small gym at the Palm Bay campus, and the larger campuses such as Cocoa have larger facilities such as a Planetarium and a Swimming Pool. You can also take little courses just for your own enrichment which I think is pretty cool. BCC is good for students who also want to save some money.

    Tips for prospective students

    As mentioned in the above box, DON'T buy or sell your books at the bookstore. They advertise rental books now, but I went in to rent a common psychology 1 book, and they said it's not available for rent. They will laugh at you if you ask for a used book (because they want your $$$). Prices at the cafeteria aren't the best either, so bring your own lunch unless money isn't a problem). Even though I'm bringing up all of these issues with BCC, these things are a problem at all colleges. Go to ratemyprofessor.com and find BCC and you will be able to find reviews on most teachers there written by their past students. This has helped me greatly in finding a good teacher. Don't expect any help from any of the administration (not just Palm Bay, all of the campuses are clueless). Decide what you are interested in doing, and look at which campus offers it. Most likely, Palm Bay or Titusville do not offer it (almost everything is at Cocoa.)

    Bang for the buck

    One thing I will admit is that you do save money going to BCC. Because I don't really care for BCC, I expressed in taking my Paramedic program through Keiser University, only to find that prices are much higher going to any other college. Do NOT buy your textbooks from the book store. They are the biggest rip off and will do anything to get your money. All colleges are like this though. I highly recommend buying yours offline. If you are interested in selling your books at the end of the semester, DO NOT sell them back to the bookstore. I paid 200 dollars for my EMT book, and one of my classmates was offered $3 if he sold it back to them. If you do research on the book your trying to sell, you will succeed. I have successfully sold all of my books online ranging from $15-60. But if the prices of classes is what you are concerned about, the price is decent. Make sure you know what you want to take though, because they are still a few hundred dollars.

    Am enjoying being here

    I don't mind being on the campus but have had enough experiences with rude staff and people who are clueless about everything that I'm much happier off campus. I'm the kind of guy that just shows up to his class so he can get his credit, and leave right away when it's over. Just the overall atmosphere of being around people (and people from high school) isn't the greatest in my opinion if you are trying to start a new life. I don't mind being on campus so much unless I have something to work out with the office. (Don't expect any help from guidance counselors, admissions or financial aid, they are clueless most of the time). Overall, the atmosphere is okay but I give it 2/5 stars.

    Am learning a lot

    Learning different things at BCC will go as far as you are willing to go. I have mainly attended the Palm Bay campus but also Cocoa. The teachers to me are pretty good. A lot of teachers will give you busy work and make you feel like your still in high school. I would recommend going on to ratemyprofessor.com for a list of most teachers in the school, and read reviews about them from past students (since in my opinion, how much you learn also depends on a good teacher). If you wish to get the most out of your class, expect to have a good amount of homework and if applicable, essay writing. I also took the EMT program and squeezed everything into 5 months, so if you are doing a short program, you will definitely want to put a good effort forth and try to learn as much as you can.

    Every type: parents, night students, returning students, young students, elderly students, and unconventional students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take the College Success Strategies for College and Life class in the beginning; your collegiate future will not be the same. This class gives one an unique outlook on one's life as a student. Other than that, the school gives one a positive attitude that keeps one dedicated and responsible, valuing the investment that one is making for one's future.

    Bang for the buck

    BCC is certainly the frugal choice. I chose BCC because it has been rated as the number one Community College in the nation (and because it is fifteen minutes away). I would have gone off to a four-year institution if it were not that I felt comfortable with the high standards of education. I am shocked to find that I can get two years of a four-year degree with the same or better standard of learning for such a fraction of the cost.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being a student as BCC, whether it is the campuses intimate atmosphere or just the sweet smell of pedagogy, I am always smiling and enjoying the time at school. The positive outlook is contagious, as I am always exchanging smiles with my peers and the faculty ans staff.

    Am learning a lot

    Brevard Community College (BCC) harvest a certain kind of environment that motivates and inspires everyone to learn, even the teachers. The faculty really are knowledgeable and personal; they want to help me learn, as if I am in their best interest. Beside the curriculum, I am learning an array of things about myself and the world around me.

    The Student Government at BCC is amazing. They host events on campus several times a semester, for things like celebrating black history month or even celebrating the holiday season, and they're so much fun. You actually want to be at school and eat, socialize, and play games.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here have a given me a perspective I have never had before, on a whole variety of topics. These teachers are, usually, experts in their field and they really care about their topic. That makes all the difference.

    Apply early for admissions and financial aid. This is the biggest key factor!

    In three sentences

    First, let me say all of the staff at the college was patient and polite. Second, financial aid (transferring student) was quite a pain to deal with (not the people so much as the procedures required). Third, the students I have met have all been nice.

    I have not seen or heard of any issues on campus and this is my 2nd year at BCC.

    Lots of stuff is available-you just have look. I have made all kinds of new friends at BCC. We like to have jam sessions on campus and the other students hang out to listen. No one bothers us.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that are not sure what type of career to go into will do well to start out at BCC. We have a 2 for 2 program that let you take your academics at the community site and then transfer to UCF for the final 2 years of your actual major.

    BCC just added a football team. That is exciting.

    Apply for scholarships even if you recieve enough financial aid. You may need the aid the following year. It is actually hard to get scholarships....I haven't gotten one yet. My aid this year just paid for my schooling.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take your parent with you to registration. Actually everytime you go until you are actually in classes. I didn't have any problems last year when my mom went with me for registration. This year was so bad that a lot of students didn't get in to a COMMUNITY college. Very sad. F for the office and aid staff!

    In three sentences

    I enjoyed my first year at the school. However this year every student's aid or registration was messed up and we had to pay a $35.00 extra registration fee. Pretty disappointing so far as staff was not helpful at all and it just seemed like a way for them to make extra money off the students.

    Brevard county high school students interested in sampling college before going away to school; high school students interested in saving money and getting a head start in general education college courses; High school graduates who cannot yet afford/are not ready to go away to university just yet - once you have your AA no one can take it away from you or say you haven't succeeded past a high school education! BCC is also great for individuals returning to college; BCC has many different programs and welcomes people returning to college to gain new skills or update current ones for better success in the future.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check in every semester with your guidance counselor to keep all degree requiremts properly approached and satisfied as you study at BCC. Always check your web account/profile to be updated on current events, class activities/grades, and register as soon as possible for classes so you can get what you want each semester. Map out your classes at BCC so you can make sure you take everything you need as efficiently as possible, especially if a class you need is only offered seasonally.

    Bang for the buck

    Despite the cuts in Bright Futures over the last few years, BCC was still affordable for me. I got a comparably sufficient education at BCC with various professors and saved thousands! I enjoyed having smaller classes too; I do not remember having a class larger than 40 people, and some classes were packed almost to that amount only because the Bright Futures Scholarship cuts required many students to change enrollments from universities to BCC in order to be able to afford any kind of college education. Having such an institution available in my own community is a blessing and a great opportunity to participate in - I am proud to be a BCC alumni with an Honors AA!

    Did enjoy being here

    BCC is a friendly and open environment that encourages higher learning. The only downside is that it is not the same as University experience due to people commuting from campus to campus and high school dual enrollment adding a different element to the school's social formula. Student Government attempts to involve all students as a community but when you only go to class and then leave, you are likely to miss some of the activities on campus. If you find a niche and become involved you will find many great people alongside you.

    Did learn a lot

    I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Honors Program at Brevard Community College. The instructors would challenge you to think outside the box and to know more than just the data one is required to regurgitate in order to pass a basic class. Several of my traditional aademic classes such as statistics and environmental science challenged me to maintain high standards and to push to do honor quality work in all my classes because it made all my classes more nejoyable. Being prepared for class gave me the opportunity to walk away learning more then what I would have learned if I only did the minimum requirement to pass.

    During these struggling economic times, BCC is a sensible choice for a college education. It is much cheaper than going straight into a university and allows easy access into UCF after completing whatever degree one is working for. Scholarships, grants, and other financial aid applications are accepted and offered during registration. Undoubtedly, I recommend attending BCC for a quality education and affordable tuition.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy BCC due to its friendly atmosphere and wide range of ages and personalities. BCC is made comfortable for first-year college students to returning older adult students. The centralized location between Mims and Titusville provides easy traveling for Brevard County civilians.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers and courses offered at BCC provide opportunities to expand your views on social interaction, thought processing, and the value of education. Like anything, you get out of it what you put into it. Attending class, focusing on the subjects, and working with fellow students will give you a sense of self worth.

    Brevard Community College is great for students who want to learn more while staying at home. Staying at home will give you more free time to get involved in the Student Clubs and getting better grades!

    Tips for prospective students

    I chose to go to a Community College instead of a University because not only could I not afford to leave home yet, but I felt that I wasn't ready to leave the nest yet. Everyone that went off to the Universities laughed at me for staying, but I got the last laugh when they failed all of their classes due to not being able to balance partying with school work. Going to a Community College isn't something that you should ever feel ashamed of because in some circumstances, it's the smartest thing to do. Now you will have an Associates degree , be able to go to any Florida University of your choice, and GUARANTEED admission while your friends will only be halfway done with school. One last tip is to use RateMyProfessor.com to help you pick the best teacher for you!

    Bang for the buck

    If you go to the FAFSA website, apply for financial aid, and get a Pell Grant, then you get to go to school for free because it covers tuition and books! Community college classes are generally cheaper than University classes with a smaller class size that will help some people to better succeed.

    Did enjoy being here

    I Loved every second that I spent at BCC! There always have fun events going on and they have clubs for many different interests from SGA to anime to karate! The cafeteria food was great and there are plenty of places throughout the campus to relax and study.

    The teachers here at BCC really try their best to help you learn! They are always sure to make time for their students if they ever have any questions about any assignments. If you still need any extra help, BCC provides free access to the Learning labs which provides you with one-on-one time with tutors in Math and English!

    Bang for the buck

    overall it is a good school, it has a 2+2 program which allows bcc students who qualify (in the a.s or a.a) to transfer as a junior (after completing your 2yr degree classes, pre-reqs, and test) to ucf (university of central florida).

    What to do for fun

    join all or most of the events that sga has they are fun and a great way to mingle with fellow students.

    Food and Dining

    the food is unhealthy and the healthy options are not that good and quite exspensive for the food.

    Dorm Life

    no dorms

    Academic Rigor

    it is a pretty easy college and they have lots of tutors on the titusville campus just not a science tutor.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure if you are going into the health science programs to check all requirments first.

    i like the school but i feel they need to listen more to students needs, the limited access programs a harsh on some students dreams, and smoking in the entrances is a no no but overall a b+ college.

    some professors are just as challenging as university professors. they all expect nothing less of you, and they never say this is just community college. the material is expected to be read, and lectures are expected to be attended.

    bcc has campus security on school grounds all the time. if you feel for some reason that it isn't safe for you to go to your car alone they would be more than happy to escort you to your car.

    Greek Life

    we do have phi theta kappa on campus but that is all i know.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are actually a lot of clubs and activities. just the other day my teacher had a guest speaker come in to tell us about some of the clubs like the environmental club, art club, sga, etc.

    Great for these types of students

    any type really. they have several different types of majors and activities at the school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    no unusual traditions however at the palm bay campus there is this little gondola thing on the opposite side of the lake that the school is on. you can go around the lake to get back there but it is actually pretty creepy since it is all woods and such.

    Bang for the buck

    the college is definitely worth the money. like i said earlier, the school is for those who don't quite have the money for the expensive universities.

    What to do for fun

    there will actually be some on campus activities that they do. they will have a welcome day where they have a live dj on the school grounds, food, shirts, things like that. there are some movie nights towards the days of final exams. so they typically will have some things planned to do on certain days, you just have to keep any eye out.

    Food and Dining

    they have one on campus restaurant but it is actually a pretty good place to eat. i recommend their subs, they might be a little bit more expensive than subway but you won't be hungry after just half a sub.

    Dorm Life

    no dorms are available to bcc so don't even ask about the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    the overall difficulties of the classes largely depend on the student. if you focus and do what you need to then they are fairly easy. if you don't pay attention and slack off then you will find yourself in some difficult classes. the only thing though is that the teachers for some reason have an uncanny knack for assigning due dates of major papers and projects on the same day or week.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure you study and always ask the teacher to explain things you don't understand. also if you are taking a course with a teacher that you just cannot learn from make sure you switch out to a different teacher as soon as possible. if you pester the guidance counselors enough they will switch you.

    In three sentences

    bcc is an excellent school for students who can't quite get the money for the high priced tuitions of universities. bcc is also a good place for those who don't know what it is they want to do yet to get started on finding a path. i would recommend bcc to any one.

    Campus Safety

    Brevard Community college has campus police 24/7 along with cameras. The campuses are very safe and I don't feel unsafe ever. There is always more than one security officer on duty at a time which also aides in the help of making it a more secure campus.

    Greek Life

    Brevard Community college does not have fraternities or sororities like universities do.

    Clubs and Activities

    Brevard Community college has so many clubs it is hard to say them all. I am currently a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society which is our honors club at Brevard Community college. There is also SGA and many many other clubs. The great thing about BCC is that if you would like to start your own club that is possible. All you have to do is start one! It is just that simple.

    Great for these types of students

    Brevard Community college is great for students who do not have the money to move away and can't afford the high prices of the university. It is very convenient, fun, and still gives each student the same education as if they were at a university.

    Bang for the buck

    At Brevard Community college the cost is only around $106 per credit hour. This I am sure is half of what it costs per credit hour at a university. On top of it being all around cheaper, it is easier to get one on one time with your professors. At Brevard Community college, the class sizes rarely exceed 40 people. Therefore it makes it quite easy for a student to get the help and attention they may need to pass the class.

    What to do for fun

    Brevard Community college offers many different activities to do for fun. They are always having events going on for different clubs. Each event usually has music, food, games, prizes, some sort of bounce house, and give aways! It is always fun to come to class or walk back from class and hear the music and see the fun stuff going on around my campus.

    Food and Dining

    All of my classes are basically at the Titusville Brevard Community college campus and there is a great family owned cafe inside our student services building. It has great food and very cheerful people who work there. The Cocoa campus also has a good variety of food to choose from. Brevard Community college does many events where they hand out free food which is great for us students who are on have a low income!

    Dorm Life

    Brevard Community college does not really offer dorm life for students because there are 4 different campuses to choose from. There are cheap apartments and such around the campuses that are available but there really isn't any set dorms for students to live in.

    Academic Rigor

    Everyone think Brevard Community college is just an easy school to pass your classes and just do the bare minimum on, but it is not. You have to do your homework, go to class, stay alert, take notes, be on time, and be prepared for classes just like at any other community college or university. The only difference academic wise between Brevard Community college and universities is that the classes are extremely smaller and it is easier to get help from your professor. I love the way Brevard Community college classes are set up. I feel like my voice can be heard in a class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for prospective students would be that Brevard Community is not just a breeze in and out of school. You do have to work to earn your degree or certificate. Don't buy the textbook until you have checked with your professor to see if you actually need it or if you may use an older version of the text. Some teachers do not always use the book or even will let you use an older version. Don't knock Brevard Community college. Just because it isn't a big university doesn't mean you are not getting the right education you need to move on in life. Last but not least, have fun while you are there! Get involved, get to know people, get to know your teachers, and make make new friends!

    In three sentences

    I believe Brevard Community college would get a 10 out of 10 rating. It has great professors, classes, easy access to your professors, convenient, and less expensive than universities. I loved going here and would recommend it to anyone to take their general education classes at Brevard Community college.

    Great security on each campus. Officers are very friendly and willing to help whenever called upon. It is a great feeling to know they are there after the night classes are let out. Always present in the parking lots and around campus and always accessible by phone.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are alot of opportunities on each campus for involvement in numerous clubs and new clubs are formed frequently. All ideas are considered and student government is very active.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for dual enrollment students, traditional and non-traditional students. Anyone that desires to automatically transfer to UCF can do so through direct-connect program.

    What to do for fun

    Join a club, play sports and get involved with activities on campus.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe's are adequate but they are not always open during the semesters. Some close at 2pm and others close during summer mini-semesters. The food is good and the service is average.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm only giving 4 stars because there are some instructors that really want to be liked and they make their courses easier to achieve A's in than they should.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make the effort to attend all lectures and do all assignments in each course. Even if a course is difficult for you, putting in the time and effort needed to learn the material is vital to your success. Learning is a lifelong process and imperative for personal growth. Do not associate with students that attempt to cheat on quizzes, assignments or exams. If a student copies your papers or exams (even if you are unaware at the time) it can hurt you. Don't make the mistake of allowing anyone to cheat off your work. Learn what exactly plagiarism is and don't do it. Be honest, work hard and you'll succeed!

    In three sentences

    The tuition and books are affordable for most students. Most of the instructors are highly educated, very helpful and interested in their students' success. Recommendations from professors are extremely helpful in obtaining scholarship funds.

    There really isn't anywhere to live on campus but the college is located in different areas and you can attend any of the colleges.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending of the class your taking and the professor the class can be like organic chemistry or as easy as gym.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to class and be sure to read the syllabus the professor gives you. Take advantage of office hours if your unfamiliar with something your professor went over. Get involved at the campus! They host a lot of activities and it pays off in the end to be a part of everything.

    In three sentences

    It isn't as intimidating as a University. You can meet plenty of people. The professors are very nice and get to know you a lot more than university professors.

    Great for these types of students

    BCC is great for students who don't have much money or are not sure what they want to do in college.

    Bang for the buck

    BCC is a very cheap school because it is a Community College. They offer AA in general education and AS is several different categories. It is a good, cheap place to start out.

    What to do for fun

    In Cocoa there is not much to do for fun. However, the beach is 15 minutes away, Orlando is 45 minutes away, and you can also go to Melbourne which is about 25 minutes.

    Food and Dining

    As far as fast food goes, there is a McDonald's and a Sonic close buy. When it comes to restaurants, the area only has mom and pop places.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at BCC. However there are cheap houses and apartments around the area. Most students at BCC still live at home.

    Academic Rigor

    BCC is not very hard, depending on the class and the teacher. Just like any school, you will have some teachers who do not care, and others who care too much.

    Tips for prospective students

    Buy your books used. Most people think that buying your books new will give you a higher resale value, however, after you are done with them they are now used. Also, don't miss many classes. First of all, if you miss too many, you get withdrawn from the class. Secondly, you become very lost in the class.

    In three sentences

    BCC is a fairly easy school. Depending on the teacher, it is like going into 13th grade after high school. I would recommend BCC to any student who is not quite sure what they want to do, or if they are unable to pay for a university.

    Academic Rigor

    BCC's academics are very high quality. As a student, I could always expect to have to work hard for good grades. My professors told me that the education received at BCC was equivalent to that of a university and that when we were ready to attend a university, we would be prepared.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared and ask questions if you have any. Sometimes the staff can be hard to deal with or incompetent, but for the most part the faculty is amazing.

    Everyone always told me that I was preparing for college and that it was going to be really hard but in reality I personally think that my BCC classes are a lot easier than my high school classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    A tip I would give prospective students would be to take it seriously, while many people see community college as just an easier version of university, the classes you take at Brevard Community College are just like the ones you would take at any four-year university, so always do your best!

    In three sentences

    Although in high school, this is my second year in the Collegiate Program; a program allows high school honor students such as myself to pursue their associates of arts while still in high school. Attending this college has been an amazing experience for me, the class sizes are perfect, the teachers are simply wonderful and do an excellent job in how they convey their course content, and since I am dual-enrolled, I don't have to pay for it, which is simply an amazing opportunity. I definitely recommend that anyone currently in high school takes advantage of the dual-enrollment opportunity to earn college credits while in high school; It's absolutely free, and even if you aren't in high school, Brevard Community College offers great programs and financial aid opportunities, and will even automatically admit you into UCF upon completion of an associates of arts degree with their direct connect program!

    What to do for fun

    Brevard community college offers many fun things. Drama club, music club, gospel choir, and even a surf club! But besides just the usual clubs you can also catch some events going on around campus.

    Food and Dining

    If were talking about the food and dining in the area I'd say there are no words to describe it. You can literally drive 3 minutes down the street and be eating Japanese food. When it comes to campus food I'd say the description is about the same. Fresh foods being cooked right on the spot for you. Simply just order and wait a few minutes and your meal comes right up.

    Dorm Life

    Brevard Community College does not have any dorms. But that doesn't effect me at all considering I live about 10 minutes away from the campus. The location is tremendously beneficial. Because if I was someone who just moved out here I would of been able to find a place to stay at a reasonable price.

    Academic Rigor

    There isn't anything that I can think of at this college that I'd consider too difficult to achieve when it comes to academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking forward to attending this college there are a few things you should keep in mind. Always arrive to class on time, remain focus in class, and turn in your work in a timely manner. Basically the things you've probably been hearing since elementary school. Doing these things will guarantee a successful college expedition.

    In three sentences

    Everything about this school is amazing. The teachers, the different choices of classes, and of course the amazing students all make the school so amazing. I would recommend this school to anyone that was looking for a college to attend.

    I like that they have some healthy options but could use more. Also I went to the cafeteria and they were closed and it was only 2pm. So I was a little upset because I didn't have time to leave and get real food so I had to go to the bookstore and buy snacks.

    The campus is overall secure. I never feel that you are in any danger. Security officers drive around the campus. It is overall a safe campus to do your studies.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are about 12 clubs that you can participate, the big ones being Student Government and Rotary Club. There are not a lot of clubs, but it is a very small college. Students do have the right to start clubs if they want, but they need to get a sponsor.

    Bang for the buck

    If you plan on transferring to a Florida university, BCC is an excellent choice because it is inexpensive and you will not have to pay for room and board. You may also get scholarships if you transfer with your AA to certain Florida Universities.

    Food and Dining

    The dining is an average cafeteria with a variety hamburgers, wraps, or chicken. It is not expensive but it is not so cheap either. It will probably better to go to sonic that is 2 miles away from the campus.

    Dorm Life

    I do not believe that there are any dorms at Brevard Community College. BCC is for students who do not want to leave home as well as save money for students. For people who want to live in campus, you will have to find an apartment nearby.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are easy (i.e Success Strategies) or difficult (General Biology). It all depends on the major you plan on pursuing. If you work hard and strive to be the best you can become, then you will do exceedingly well at Brevard Community College.

    Tips for prospective students

    It took about a week for me to apply to Brevard Community College because I had to do some applications such as proving residency at Florida and submitting SAT or ACT scores. Like most other colleges, its best to sign up for class early than late. Like every college, there are some great teachers at BCC who you would want to have, but there are also not-so-great teachers.

    Bang for the buck

    Because of how most of the material is covered, if you already know any of the material, you will often not receive the education that you are paying for. A lot of this seems to be because professors are afraid to leave anyone behind and the large number of dual enrollment students are not paying for the class and are not going to say anything about it.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeterias (at Palm Bay and Cocoa campuses, at least) are great but have very limited hours, small portions, and are often overpriced.

    Dorm Life

    There are not dorms at BCC

    Academic Rigor

    Many classes are taught down to the absolute lowest level in the class. If you already know any of the material that will be taught in the class, you might find yourself feeling bored through much of the course.

    In three sentences

    BCC is an okay school, but there are a lot of dual enrollment or early admissions kids, which definitely leaves many of the classes with a more high school feel. Many of your professors will teach down to the lowest level found in the class, making it easy to skate through most of them.

    There has never been an incident at Brevard Community College while I have been attending there. Campus security is always patrolling around, making sure that everyone is safe and protected.

    Older people who want to further their education, adults who wish to take college while working at their current job, high school students wanting to receive a more challenging learning atmosphere, high school graduates who want to save money by not attending a university right away.

    Bang for the buck

    As I am currently a dual enrolled student, the bang for the buck is obviously five stars. I'm getting a college education for free. What's even better is that the students are mature, and the teachers are passionate about their subjects, making the learning environment just about perfect.

    What to do for fun

    There are constant activities taking place at Brevard Community College. There is a zombie run, in which winner receive tickets to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. There is a Relay for Life team for those who wish to do community service, and there are plenty of activity days to partake in throughout each semester

    Food and Dining

    The college campuses each have their own small cafeterias and vending machines, but the primary purpose of this community college is to provide students with an education, not a five course meal.

    Dorm Life

    Being a community college, there is no dorm life that goes on. This would be because there are no dorms to speak of in this community college.

    Academic Rigor

    Being a community college, the academic rigor is not too much, nor too little. Brevard Community College wants to attract as many people as possible, and there are classes for all ranges of students. Honor programs, fourth credit options, and preparatory classes allow for everyone to find what is right for them.

    Tips for prospective students

    The most important tip I could give would be to study hard. This is a college, and not a high school. Just because it is not a university does not mean the classes are easy. They are all challenging, but if one puts their effort into it, the classes become very manageable.

    In three sentences

    Brevard Community college is designed for just about anyone to attend its campus. Whether you are young or old, going to BCC is a great way to further your education, while paying less money than you would at a university. The teachers and staff are all hardworking, and make sure that attendees of BCC get the most out of their college life.

    Campus Safety

    Every time I am on campus, whether it be during that day or after hours during the night classes, I can see the campus cops patrolling. Itâ??s very reassuring knowing that they are always monitoring the grounds and keeping the students safe.

    What to do for fun

    Seeing as it is just a community college, everyone just comes for their class then goes back home. However you do have intramural sports and other clubs to participate in if that's what you're interested in. Also since BCC is connected to the King Center, you can easily go to whatever performances are being shown there.

    Food and Dining

    The one dining hall on campus is very old and hardly every used. It's small and almost uninviting. However I have never personally ordered any food from there so I cannot comment on the actual quality. There are vending machines located all throughout the ground though as well as a good selecting of snacks in the bookstore.

    Dorm Life

    BCC is a community college and does not have any dorms. However there is different housing subdivisions located all around the school.

    Academic Rigor

    If you want easy classes with mediocre professors, BCC has it. However there are just as many if not more instructors who are more than qualified and challenge the students each and every day of class. A good education can definitely be attained at BCC.

    Tips for prospective students

    Seeing as most people get automatically accepted into BCC, the only tips I could give before anyone starts is to just be open to the idea of education. Don't go into it thinking that just because it's a community college you're not going to learn. If you're open and willing, the knowledge is there to be soaked up.

    In three sentences

    I was a bit apprehensive starting at a community college as I wasn't expecting anything too amazing, however since starting at BCC, I've been pleasantly surprised by the vigor of the classes, knowledge of the teachers, and the accommodation of all the staff. Everyone is very welcoming from the professors to the other students and there are plenty of resources around campus which can help you get connected and find your niche or just help you stay on track academically.

    Nick and Ray are exceptional advisors. Check out prospective instructors on ratemyprofessors website before signing up for classes. If you know where you want to go from here, use your electives to satisfy required courses you will need at the university you will be transferring to.

    I ate at a family-owned business at the Titusville BCC campus, and I have to say, it's amazing. I love the food there and although I love to eat, it is amazing. The people that own the restaurant are so kind and polite.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't stay in a dorm during my time at BCC, I transient ed from home, and honestly, it's nice to be able to get onto campus with much hassle.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes at BCC are decently challenging. The professors definitely want you to learn the material and actually learn what is being taught instead of giving you a free A. I've had my struggles but nothing good is accomplished without a little hard work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Start off at BCC, it is a great place to start off and think of what you want to do with your general of starting degree.

    In three sentences

    Being at this college for the past 3 years gives me a lot of experience even though I am just a teenager. The professors are amazing, although differing throughout the various campuses. I wouldn't have traded my A.A. degree experience for anything else because I learned a lot at this campus and rate it a 4.5/5.

    Dorm Life

    BCC does not have dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    BCC does not have all of the classes that they say they offer. If they offer a class that you need but don't see it often, take it. It may be your last chance for a year or so.

    Tips for prospective students

    The main tip I would give to prospective students is to talk to an adviser. I recommend seeing your adviser so often, that you could be best friends. It is very important and it saves a lot of time and money.

    In three sentences

    Brevard Community College is a good school to get your AA or certification. The classes are small, between 10 to 25 people, so the teachers are able to give you personal attention and help. The campus is very clean and the school has fun events that go on to help you interact with your peers.

    Get out while you can!

    Only ate at the little café on the first floor of the admissions building twice. The first time was fine, but it was remodeled for the worse. It now looks like the back of a warehouse, they axed the fridge that had salads, yogurts, and fruits (cutting their selection in half,) and the food is questionable.

    For fun, Brevard Community College has a basketball gym that students can go and play basketball on. But if that's not for you, they also have a weight room and pool area where students can either catch some sun or burn off some energy.

    Food and Dining

    The little restaurant/cafe that Brevard Community College has, is good and matches a college students budget. They also have vending machines if the student just needs a drink or a snack to refuel.

    Academic Rigor

    I know as a current student, I have always been challenged in all of the classes that I have taken here. To me, the academics are off the charts. Some teachers/professors are easier than others, but each one wants the student to learn and be a successful individual.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips I would give to a new student are: 1. Be on time to class and take it serious. 2. Get to know the teacher/professor and their teaching habits because each is different. 3. Utilize the free services that the school provides. For example, the learning lab, math lab, and the study cubicles.

    Wait to get your textbooks before class, and if the teacher requires you to get an online code, and you didn't sign up for a hybrid class, switch classes, especially if its a math class, because then they don't really teach. Most of the teachers teach from the book, but will sometimes cover everything you need to know for the tests.

    There are very many recreational sports and the student involvement is amazing on campus.

    Food and Dining

    There is only one little cafe area and it is not open for those who have to take night classes.

    The campus I attend does not offer dorms.

    The admissions and advising staff are very help, I can always count on them to point me into the right direction.

    I would definitely look into all the different campus' that there are.

    In three sentences

    With the multiple different campus' I have only been to 1 which is rather small. The staff is very friendly and offer lots of help but the class selection is slim. The days available as well as he times sometimes make it hard for people who have jobs or families.

    Campus Safety

    Security is always on campus. And they will walk you to your car if you don't feel safe enough. They're just a phone call away, and answer the phone within the first two rings.

    Greek Life

    I don't believe there are any sororities. At least none that I'm aware of.

    Clubs and Activities

    Tons of different clubs and activities posted all over. From art club to a club about exercise! There's pretty much everything to do!

    Great for these types of students

    Students that want to stay close to home or near the beach. And if you're not quite sure what you want to do for a career yet, this is a great place!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I'm aware of.

    Bang for the buck

    I was able to take 5 classes for around $2,500 last semester. Not having anything else to compare to, I think it's a great price!

    What to do for fun

    The beach isn't too far from campus, and there a few movie theaters and shopping centers around. As well as the Brevard Zoo, which is about ten minutes north of the Melbourne Campus.

    Food and Dining

    Personally, I think the food is great! There are a few restaurants in a five mile radius, and there is a chick-fil-a and ice cream place on campus! And there are more restaurants all around town!

    Dorm Life

    It was a community college last year, so there aren't any dorms that I'm aware of. But I like it because it's close to home!

    Academic Rigor

    Some teachers can be lazy and don't really explain things, while other teachers love their job. There are many teachers that get excited about teaching and make learning fun, while keeping it challenging!

    Tips for prospective students

    Take the general classes first: communications, math, science, ect. and then move onto electives. Take classes that you're already interested in to try and find out what you want to do for a career!

    In three sentences

    EFSC is a great place to go to find out what you want to do.The staff is friendly and helpful, and you learn quite a bit! It's also a good place close to home!
