    Diverse, willing to learn, hardworking students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't expect it not to be hard, there are some really tough professors out there. Some classes are more of a comedy show than a class. Use RateMyProfessors.com to help with that.

    Bang for the buck

    You really can't argue about the price at Broward College. It is one of the cheapest schools in Florida and you get more than what you pay for. You get great teachers who are willing to go the distance, meet great people, and have a nice friendly, environment to go to school at.

    Am enjoying being here

    I thoroughly enjoy being a student at Broward College. The campus is kept very clean, it is very open, and it is a versatile learning environment. The student body is a very diverse group of students of all ages, all races, and all religions. I have learned outside of the classroom and in while talking to fellow students.

    Am learning a lot

    I've been attending Broward College (formerly known as Broward Community College) for a year and a half now. I have learned a tremendous amount from teachers and classmates at this school. All the teachers I have had are extremely knowledgeable in their field and are willing to teach you until you learn.

    Great for these types of students

    Enlightened students will reap great gains in knowledge from Broward College. All students are compatible with Broward College, as the wide array of courses offered are detrimental when it comes to deciding a future and major. This college is most beneficial to high school students who have recently graduated and facing financial instability. The classes are relatively cheap, and mass amounts of scholarships and grants are available from the college itself to aid in the process of paying for precious education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Future scholars and prodigies should take the time to absorb the value of education within a higher level institution before committing to enrollment at any public college. With that being said, students need to realize that Broward College is a great stepping stone to achieving higher education, with great benefits, within a major university. No matter what college the student is enrolled in, whether it be community college or public, it is truly up to the student to determine for oneself what their goals in life are, and once realized, nothing will restrain one from achieving their dreams. Don't let your reality determine your future. If you are in a public college instead of a major university due to the high cost of education, always keep in mind that even though education offered at public colleges may not be as good as Harvard or Yale, it is still a great benefit to be receiving any sort of higher education. Patience is a virtue, and if exercised properly, an individual is capable of achieving what the world claims impossible. When there is a will, there is always a way.

    Bang for the buck

    Aside from the few negative aspects of the learning quality offered at Broward College, the courses are beneficial and most advantageous when the enrolling student takes the time to research for themselves which instructors have the best student approval ratings.

    Am enjoying being here

    Broward College may be a 4 year school, but this is not where I am destined to graduate from. I am very grateful for the education that I am currently receiving, but for the price of admission and classes I strongly disagree with the amount of learning resources available. The students need more technology in the classrooms to have visual reference to the subjects in question. Aside from the lack of technology, Broward College is another mediocre public college that accomplishes what it's aimed to do.

    Am learning a lot

    Although Broward College is a great campus for the locals residing in South Florida, I've come to notice that many professors do not posses the required discipline, and lecture skills, to be qualified as a professor. Broward College offers many different classes at different hours of the day, which is convenient for many working students. From my own personal experience, however, I conclude that a minority of professors do not appear in class with their resources prepared, and fail to carry out the ideal lectures aimed to keep the student's interest afloat. I hold mentors with highest respect possible, they are the guiding hand of every young aspiring student destined to achieve prosperity. Having the option to choose from a variety of courses is detrimental, however, it does not invalidate the fact that many professors unknowingly degrade the quality of education by not emphasizing and reviewing their course evaluations to renovate their teaching methods. The professors who truly enjoy their job find pleasure in being the mentor to future scholars. They are the ones who are very knowledgeable, providing good insight into the real world experience by finding relevance between the subject being taught and the student's personal life.

    Great for these types of students

    Its great for students who need a second chance to raise up their G.P.A., a student who isn't sure what university they would want to attend, and/or for students who are undecided about their major. Also this help students that is pursing an AA degree or AS degree to go to the university of their dreams.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask for the student activities office where the students that work there will help with anything that concerns you. Even if you ask an student that is walking nearby, they will be happy to show you around. Before you know it you will be showing other students where the library or lab is. Always try to join some clubs because its really fun and you will meet people that will end up being your friend for a life time!

    Am enjoying being here

    Small, friendly environment

    And the lab is like an extra help if you need it!

    Great for these types of students

    It's a great school for anyone trying to get their AA degree, whether it's your first time going to college straight out of high school or you are a returning student/adult. It's definitely a great school that will challenge you.

    Tips for prospective students

    I've been attending Broward College (formally known as Broward Community College) for the past year now. I absolutely love the campus and the people who teach as well as attend as students. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful. It makes your first college experience a great one! At first I was terrified and had no idea what to do, where to go, how to get things done, or even when they had to be done! All you have to do is ask and help will come in every shape and form. I was literally confused from the moment I walked into the main building, but after admissions, and tackling your way through financial aid and the bookstore, everything just falls into place. I must say it was nice to start off at a smaller school to get the hang of things before transferring to a university, it's much less intimidating.

    This school is great for all types of students, especially students who don't want to be in class for hours, because every class is about i hour and 15 minutes. It's also good for students who work full time or have other obligations, because they have very good online classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's best to register for classes as soon as possible because classes full up very fast. Try and speak with an advisor to help you with your classes, a good one is Maynel Little, she can help with almost anything you need.

    Bang for the buck

    Broward College is a very affordable school, every class is about $250 and it's completing worth it. The teachers are very respectful, somewhat easy, and don't over load you with work. Recently Broward College has become a 4-year college and offers more majors, specify for educational majors.

    Am enjoying being here

    The environment is very laid back and gives you a very tranquil feeling. The people are very friendly and the administrators are always helpful, respectful, and reliable. They have many computers and tutors to help you with any work you need. Broward College has various clubs, sports, and recreational activities for you to enjoy.

    Am learning a lot

    I'm a legal assisting major and the teachers are all experience and so helpful, and I feel I'm going to be very successful. The teachers alwasy give you their emails and phone numbers so you can personally help you with any considers you have.

    Great for these types of students

    (Based on North Campus). Any one who lives locally and doesn't want a crazy commute to their school. Any one who'd rather not deal with ridiculous amounts of traffic (like at a university). Any one who feels they'll learn better in a smaller class size! Any one who'd rather be in a smaller school instead of a huge university. Any one who has a 75% Bright Futures Scholarship...because 100% of your tuition will be covered at BC!!!!

    Tips for prospective students

    Take care of any questions about classes, registration, etc. ASAP!!!!! Advisers get BOOKED once class registration opens, making it almost impossible to figure out what classes to take, or to have them override any problems/issues you may be having! Sign up for classes early! I've had to learn the hard way that you should sign up for your classes as soon as registration opens for you. That way you can get the exact classes and schedule you want. You can get it to where you only go to school two days a week! And that's full time! But the only way to do that is to act quickly! Have a positive outlook on school/your classes. If you go into a class, especially one that's on a subject you're not good at or interested in, with a negative outlook, chances are you probably won't get much out of it! Try to desire to learn and understand what's being taught; speaking from personal experience it can really change how you do in a certain subject! Take care of financial aid and other registration issues as early on as you can. You don't want to have to pay out of pocket for classes...especially if you don't have the money to pay for them! And if your financial aid isn't turned in early enough and you don't pay, all your classes will be dropped! Then you'll get stuck with whatever is available! Say bye bye to your perfect schedule! So unless you have the money to pay upfront, it's crucial that you take care of your financial aid first thing! For anyone who has taken AP courses in high school, keep the copies of your score sheets in a safe place! Again, I've had to learn the hard way...the school has managed to lose my scores I submitted to them, and now when they're asking me to bring in the copies, I'm not so sure where they are! Basically just have copies of anything and everything important, and KNOW where they are! That way if there are any issues you'll have them on hand! Online classes are a great option! Don't be afraid to try them!

    Bang for the buck

    (Review based on North Campus). Like I said above, I feel like I'm learning so much more, yet I'm having to pay LESS than what I would at a regular university!!! The professors can get one-on-one with you and really help you with problems you may be having; in addition there is free tutoring offered in the library. There are many ways to get help with anything you're struggling with, so you can be sure you're getting your money's worth when it comes to your education!

    Am enjoying being here

    (Review based on North Campus). Like mentioned above, because of the classes being so well sized (not too many students), it really gives you a great opportunity to get to know your classmates and make friends, especially for those (like me) who aren't the most outgoing individuals. I actually see students I know around campus and it just makes the college experience so much more pleasant when you don't feel like you're wandering around alone! There's also many events going on, pretty regularly, so if you're someone who likes to be involved in the student life it's perfect! At LEAST once every 2 weeks there's music playing and tables set up with something going on, whether it's Welcome Back week, Haiti Relief Awareness, or anything in between! The one complaint I do have about BC is the process of meeting with an advisor...if you don't act quickly you pretty much get stuck when trying to figure out what classes to take, because they appointments fill up so quickly! This can be quite frustrating...

    Am learning a lot

    (Review based on North Campus). I transferred from FAU to Broward College and feel like I am learning a lot more here. I have had some really amazing professors who REALLY know what they're talking about. One of the biggest and best differences is that the class sizes are significantly smaller. At FAU, some of my lecture classes had up to 300 students in them, while at BC the max number of students in a class I've had was probably 25! The professor knows the students by name, and it's much easier to get to know your fellow classmates!

    Broward college is great for every type of student.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Always be on time, Professors hate it when they start their class and you, just walk in late. 2. If your not going to be attending class, or you will be turning in assignment late email your professor ahead of time. 3. Take notes, Take notes, take note.

    Bang for the buck

    Everything is affordable.

    I love everything about the school because: people are so friendly, I have access to a computer, a laptop, a printer,scanner, and a copy machine. The book store; The food is awesome!

    Am learning a lot

    Yes! I am learning a lot at Broward College. I just came out of high school, so I still have a young state of mind; I was not use to having all the responsibility. I was use to me putting 50% in and my teacher putting in 50%. But at Broward College it helped me grow up; I now know that I am responsibly for what I do.

    if your the type of person that likes art, wants to become a teacher, wants to be apart of something magnificent then BROWARD COLLEGE is for YOU.

    Tips for prospective students

    for future students i advise u take the classes you need to get your degree. join as many clubs as you can, make good connected friends, and get as many opportunities you can to learn and succeed. and most of all have FUN!!!!

    Bang for the buck

    i thought i was going to have to get a job to pay for my classes and books. but financial aid was very helpful in helping me succeed this difficult task. it doesnt cost much to come to broward college.

    Am enjoying being here

    i really enjoy going here because i can make life long friendships in joining the different clubs they have to offer. like student government, ptk, roots, and the blue hawks. hopefully next year i will join the blue hawks so i can give the tours around campus, get crowds and the school pumped up at orientation and functions.

    Am learning a lot

    broward college has qualified professors that help you learn a lot, experience good information you can take with you in the workforce. they even get in a laugh or two.

    Students that are able to push themselves a bit more than others and want to achieve great grades to move onto a better University.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely put in the extra time to check your professors ratings and see what the students in the past have thought about the professor. I regret my first semester completely for not doing this.

    Bang for the buck

    For the money that it cost to attend this College I believe it is well worth it and everyone that is local should definitely keep it in mind if you cannot afford to go away for schooling.

    Am enjoying being here

    While the schooling is above average and you learn can learn a lot by picking the right professors, the environment at Broward College seems to be that of a high school. The kids seem to be more interested in playing spades and hanging out than discussing class material and studying for the tests that they have to take.

    Am learning a lot

    For a local college that just recently become renowned as a 4 year college they are definitely doing better than any of the other local schools. If you put in the time to research which professors are the best and receive the best ratings among the student body you can receive a pretty good education. Although I have had a few teachers that lacked the proper knowledge to be teaching the class and one had to put in the extra effort to teach themselves some things at home.

    Great for fresh out of college, students who need to work full-time, students who want to return after years of not attending, parents, single-parents. Really it's great for everyone.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tip: Know yourself. Broward College has the most flexible schedule in the world, in my opinion. They have the same classes at all different times (morning, afternoon or evening), 5 days a week, online or on campus. It just can't get any better. But what I mean about know yourself is: Don't not pick a 8 am class knowing that you would never be able to be up in time to make it. Use the flexible scheduling to work around you work time. If you must work full-time you can still find something that works with you and still be going to school full time. Visit advisors as much as possible! They get you through things. That is what they are there for... to ADVISE.

    Bang for the buck

    Definitely bang for you buck. All that you would learn in a university paying a whole bunch of dollars you learn in a nice cozy college and not burn a whole in your pocket.

    Did enjoy being here

    I did enjoy attending. Made some friends and learned alot.

    Did learn a lot

    People seem to be discouraged about going to a Community College, although it is now Broward College, its still seen as a school where you can shoot the breeze and pass. It's not. Class sizes are smaller for a better learning experiences. Professors learn your name individually which I'm sure in a bigger institution professors only know the good students. In my time hear I did learn alot. Fresh out of high school just starting up, you learn about time management and of course the course criteria etc.

    If you're looking to get your feet wet and higher education, highly consider this to Miami Dade College. Though I live in Miami, I learn in Broward. Also, let that slogan at Broward be your mantra: Finish what you start!

    Tips for prospective students

    Consider the cost of going to a 4 year university when looking into this school. Though they offer 4 year degrees, do they offer job support and placement in the fields they mention will earn over 100k?

    Bang for the buck

    I've heard from many students that there's a better deal, however I've learned that you get what you pay for. Sometimes, you get a raw deal, but I've always found my money well spent at the classes offered.

    Am enjoying being here

    I typically enjoy my time on the campus. Different campuses carter to their area and at times, South Campus in particular can feel like high school part 2, but if you're in and out with classes, this isn't a problem.

    Am learning a lot

    I think for the most part education from Broward College is standard. There are a few gems as far as professors go, but for the most part, I don't feel that Broward offers a superior or even comparable learning that you could get from a state university.

    Broward is highly withdrawn from individuals mind, due to the fact of it being a community college. They have changed their status to a college as of this past year, offering batchelors in many programs. Education to me isnt measured by the name, but by the knowledge a student is filled with. I personally think i wouldnt have received a better education elsewhere.

    Haven't been robbed or harassed so I give it an A okay :). There is also security constanly driving around the parking lot.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The only tradition I am aware of is the lounge having movie nights with free popcorn. A place for you to relax and meet with friends.

    Bang for the buck

    don't even know what that is.

    What to do for fun

    get involved with clubs and activities. They always are up to doing creative stuff.

    Food and Dining

    Food is good, no complaints. vending machines are also available if you need something quick and on the go.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors are very helpful only if you ask. The fact that there is less students per class verses a university gives you the student an advantage to seek help. Also professors are usually available 30 minutes prior and after class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you do not procrastinate with anything. For example, do things before the deadline, register for classes the day registration opens, check financial aid status. Stay connected with students and professor. Don't be afraid to ask questions or for guidance.

    In three sentences

    Broward College is a great college. Small classrooms which is better then sitting in a room with 400 students. LRC (learning resource center) is also very helpful and very glad BC provides resources for students benefits. Parking is also not that bad compare to bigger University.

    There are very good basketball and football courts.

    Food and Dining

    there are only fried food , and soups out of packages available. Also there are sandwiches and wraps.

    Academic Rigor

    A lot of our teachers prepare us for the harder studies in upper level courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest first to go to ratemyprofessor.com and find out what type of a teacher you are about to take classes with, as different teachers require different level of effort from a student. The most important thing for us, students, is to be passionate about studies. We have to know that the most important things in life, are those that have the biggest value in the world. These are the things that we do after we graduate (our service that we provide with our knowledge and work).

    In three sentences

    This school has a lot of great teachers that have passion and interest to teach their students. All of the campuses here have tutors available from math, English, chemistry and so on... But since, I haven't been studying in other colleges, I am not able to compare to other schools.

    We have many programs, and extra curricular activities that you may attend and we have our very own honors society club with offers tons of scholar ship programs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although Broward College just expanded there degree level and took the community college thing away. This school is just like your applying for FIU or UM, take college serious because the professor's here wont treat you like the high school teachers!

    Bang for the buck

    Attending Broward college would save you more money than you'll expect to spend. Broward College charges about 77 dollars per credit course. I'm a full time student taking 5 classes, i spend and overall of 2300 dollars and that includes the price for new books!

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being apart of Broward College but for any student who wants to attend I encourage you to apply to Central Campus. Central Campus is the best campus among the other 7 campus Broward College has. Central Campus is amazing it feels just like a walk through FAU courtyard.

    Am learning a lot

    Being an student at Broward College as expanded my knowledge of how college at and university will be. Broward College is the same as any other university. here and BC we have great professors who are encouraging, helpful and great in the classes room. the professor's here pass on their learning abilities to help the students at BC become better than they are and exceed higher learning.

    If your going just for your first to years then transferring or if you are applying for a four year program, this is a great school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask classmates for recomendations about professors and check rate my professor, Although I have found that ratemyprofessor.com isn't always the most accurate. Get involved in the clubs. I recommend PTK-Omega Phi Chapter.

    This is the best bang for your buck and you are getting the same type of eduation you would from another college/university.

    I like BC and would probably have stayed all 4 years but unfortunately right now they do not offer a bachelors for my degree. Classes can be intense but the campus grounds are relaxing. Lots of stuff to do.

    There are a lot of great professors at Broward that really do care about their students, such as Susan Grody, Paul Beaulieu, Deoraj Bharath,Prof. Coakley.A lot of prof here really do take their time to make sure you understand the material and are really there to help you.

    People who like small classes and intimate settings with professors. Most of them really do care and will do what they can to help you graduate. BC's slogan is Finish What You Start so they really give you every opportunity too succeed. If you're not sure if you can handle regular college life right out of high school, try it at Broward because it's like a great middle ground between high school and University.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely check Rate My Professor before signing up for any classes and ask around to see how others liked or didn't like them. I would also recommend signing up for classes as early as possible so you don't get stuck with that schedule that everyone hates. (Again, another good reason to be in the Honors Institute is that you get to sign up for classes a week before everyone else.) Also, make sure you know what you want to do. and if you don't, take Gen ed classes. take the ones that you know suit the broadest range of the carrier fields you are looking at.

    Bang for the buck

    My first two semesters, I did't pay anything for my classes because I had Bright Futures and the Honors scholarship (another good reason to be in Helix but you don't need to be to be in the Honors Institute.) In my second semester, I tanked a class and brought my GPA to a 3.0 and lost the honors, but my Bright Futures did a lot. If you want Gen Ed for cheep but with good people, look them up.

    Am enjoying being here

    Like I said I'm having a great time. I'm in the Honors Learning Community Helix, which really isn't worth doing unless you're planning on transferring to a major school and want a transfer scholarship. However, It started out with 20 students and we all became really close, really quickly because we had to take 2 classes a semester with these people for 3 semesters. the class has slowly dwindled down to 9 people but we're all really close and help each other out. there are ways to get to know people and fun activities all the time. Don't listen to the Debbie Downers on Broward. They just wanted to do something more and couldn't.

    Am learning a lot

    So far I've loved all of my Professors (except one, but we worked that out) and I've learned a lot. It depends on what class you're taking, but for the most part, I've learned stuff that I will actually use and the Teachers make the classes entertaining.

    Great for parents, ESOL, ESE, EAP , older students, student's returning after years of absence from college. Anyone who has to take care of dependants, bills, house, where mommy and daddy has the money to take care of everything for you. Student whose scholarships is not enough to pay for everything.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students take the time to study even if it is five pages a day or a page of your ten-paged paper a day. Do not overwhelmed one's self and stay on top of your financial aid, and classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Broward College charges a third of what a university will charge per credit. Depending on your professor, just like any other university, there are the hacks and the greats. I have been fortunate to spend my $101.90 per credit on the greats.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy it, yes we do not have all the Greek's there but there are activities. Not only can I enjoy them between two part time jobs, but so can my child.

    Am learning a lot

    Some may view Broward College as the easy way out of school. Many do not take Broward College as a serious college. Well, to those of you who think that, I say you are entitled to your opinion; however, look at it from my point of view. Broward College is a traditional school. It gives everyone an opportunity. If one is an EAP student, a single parent, low income, if one has other priorities besides school Broward College allows one to advance in their studies and careers remembering that school cannot always be a first priority but it is one. I have had professors challenge me to my max. I still can remember some of the information that I learned my first year. I owe my life and education to Broward College.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety gets 5 stars because they are always doing their jobs and taking care of the littlest problems to the major ones. They are always there for the students and faculty assisting as much as they can. I feel safe with knowing that they are there for me.

    Greek Life

    Unfortunately there isn't any Greek life going on with Broward. Due to the fact that it was a community college first.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who work well with small groups and students who may not be able to afford big universities classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to state universities Broward College is a lot cheaper.

    What to do for fun

    The school has events at the end of every month. Each event is different. Usually they are based on what is being celebrated that month. For example in November we had a fall event that had rides and games all over the campus like a miniature carnival.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is amazing. The fries are to die for. And so are the chicken tenders. They have a sushi section and there is a section where you can build your own sandwich just like subway. And much more!

    Dorm Life

    Since Broward College was originally a community college there aren'Â?t any dorms for students who are studying from other locations. Only the athletic teams of the schools have dorms. They have dorms because they are always training twenty four seven days of the week to become better and better athletes.

    Academic Rigor

    I say this because Broward is very strict but at the same time lenient. They will never turn their backs on any students and they will work with you as an individual and make sure that you make it to whatever you want to be. On the other hand a lot of things that the school may afford are usually hidden. For example I needed money for summer classes and I was looking on the schools website and couldn�¢����t find anything reason being, the school website wasn�¢����t updated. But I successfully got my scholarship buy physically going into my deans�¢���� office and asking for help. Now that may not seem like a problem but for some students who use most of their lives through the web may be missing out.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your just graduating from high school and looking for a place to go. Broward College is the best start. Instead of going straight into a university where the classrooms are crazy packed and seeing your instructor is almost impossible at Broward you will experience the complete opposite. You have one on one time with other students and your professors. You�¢����re able to raise your hand and ask questions not just sit in an arena style classroom and hope for the professor to repeat whatever he or she just said. This also pushes their students to finish what they started. To add, Broward is also a fun place to be. Every month there is some silly event going on. And for the serious students we have national speakers there all the time. We also have debates on politics, religion, race and others whatever will keep our minds growing and expanding. Broward has it.

    In three sentences

    Broward is a college of honesty, dedication, love and being there for their students. It may be small but it has a big heart. This is where every student should start.

    Clubs and Activities

    I have not joined many clubs but they do have them around as well as sports for the athletes. The college is now starting to incorporate many athletic scholarships as well that can really be a motivation to students.

    Bang for the buck

    For the money it is very good and you will be satisfied. For the money you are paying, you actually get a little more than you deserve which is a plus. As for books and other supplies, it is still expensive as it would be in another college or university.

    What to do for fun

    The college offers many clubs to join and meet new people. They also have a student center where you can play pool, table tennis, and watch tv while you wait for your next class or just have nothing else to do. I always see people hanging around here and having a good time.

    Food and Dining

    I have not really eaten at the school much because of the limited amounts of food they have and high prices. Many people are around the area however and it is a good place to meet new people. If you are really hungry and need some food they have vending machines and also a cafeteria to meet your needs.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms in the college campuses. I played soccer however and received housing money but only to live near campus. Not exactly in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes do not teach you much but just give you assignments. If you have a good professor , you should learn a lot and also find it very manageable to work and go to school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before you choose classes, you should go on rateyourprofessor,com and look at who you choose beforehand. Make sure you get the desired books and any other things your teachers assign to you. Try to show up to all the classes and don't fall behind.

    In three sentences

    It has limited degrees to choose from. Different campuses to attend around the Broward area. I feel some of the teachers aren't top quality and should still be teaching in high school. You have to really search for the good teachers, the ones who actually care. Small classes are good but you don't feel as much as the college experience.

    There is a lot of campus safety around campus and emergency call boxes just in case your in need of help.

    Not too much on Greek life I've seen personally.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have a lot of different clubs in the student life center and activities going on every month on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    For international students we have a lot of in fluent students and in the cafeteria a big variety of foods and snacks. We also have a lot of different clubs depending on your interests.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nothing really unusual about locations/traditions.

    Bang for the buck

    Blood drives for free movie/gas. and the classes/programs are affordable compared to other colleges/universities in the area.

    What to do for fun

    At Broward College for fun they have free movie premieres at North campus , theathre plays, and live bands perform here, they also have poetry/open mic nights at different locations.

    Food and Dining

    It's average

    Dorm Life

    No dorm for this college

    Academic Rigor

    The academic programs are great.

    Tips for prospective students

    1 .Attendance is a must at Broward College, plus many teachers give you a grade on attendance 2. Ratemyprofessor.com is a great website to help you have an idea on what other students opinions are on their professors

    In three sentences

    If I had a chance to give Broward College a rating I would honestly give it a 8/10. The reason why I not 10/10 is because on the North Campus I feel it badly needs to be updated as far as looks compared to Central and south campus. a lot of the teachers are helpful. You will learn a lot.

    Campus Safety

    There is plenty of security roaming around the campus at all times enabling one to feel safe and secure wherever they may be. There are various hot line numbers that can be called in case of emergencies and messages are sent to one's cell phone and e-mail when an incident occurs. It allows one to not have to worry at all in case of a situation and go about their daily schedule with little worries.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a wide variety of clubs to choose from such as Math club, Science club, and even Salsa club. These activities and clubs allow for opportunities in which the students can feel more comfortable on campus and meet new people. There is always a new event that goes on every week inviting everyone to attend as a way of relaxing and enjoying the college experience.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, one can go to the library and hang out in the cafe with friends and teachers, simply talking about the school day or any plans later on. There sometimes activities that go on during lunch time and allow students to dance and sing as a way of promoting certain events or clubs. There is always something that can be done during the day that causes an ordinary day to turn interesting all of a sudden because the campus is always full of life.

    Food and Dining

    The food from both cafe's on campus is widely varied and quite nutritious. There are an abundance of options for one to choose from and the prices are quite reasonable; there are plenty of dining areas ll around the campus with plenty of shade for one to eat and socialize at. There are also a plethora amount of restaurants outside of school that one can go to at any time of the day.

    Dorm Life

    I am currently not residing in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    This college makes clear the requirements necessary to be successful in each class. Depending on both the class, the teacher, and the student, the way the academic rigor is viewed varies greatly. Basically, it is up to the individual to make he most of their semester and gain as much knowledge as possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips would be to make sure to purchase one's books as soon as possible before they run out to maximize the learning experience in the class. Certain teacher require certain books and it will be like a tool of reference to further understand the topics in the class. Also, to arrive early to not only reserve a parking spot but to arrive to one's class on time and capture the entire lesson of the day.

    In three sentences

    I would say that Broward College is a great campus that provides one on one learning between the student and teacher. The instructors make sure to inform their students about the layout of the semester and make sure that they are fully aware of what is expected of them. It is a learning environment that properly founds one's first years of being in college.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety is very good, because they have a system which text messages every student at the school if something goes wrong, called the 'BC Alert' system. There are also 'call boxes' for emergencies all around the school, as well as local patrolling security during all hours.

    Greek Life

    None, as far as I know of.

    Clubs and Activities

    I've seen a great amount of unique types of clubs and activities in the school, one of my favorite being the 'Brain Buster' club which partakes in active trivia for scholarship money. It's a lot of fun.

    Great for these types of students

    Hard working students who are not afraid of a very open campus with lots of people to talk to and meet. Social people will also love this campus. It's also a great place to try many different types of things, so it's very hard for me to think of types of students whom it will NOT be good for.

    Bang for the buck

    Because of the large selection of classes and high quality of specialized classes, this is really an incredible financial option for the AA degree seeker. Broward College now offers some BA degrees as well, which they even have special financing for certain majors, as there is a high demand for certain types of work in South Florida, and you may way to look into if your looking for some spare cash.

    What to do for fun

    They often have community events at the school, where they have DJs, performers, and free food available very often in the heart of the school grounds. There are also a lot of free musical and theater events for students, as well as visits from politicians like Michelle Obama, which happened just two days ago.

    Food and Dining

    A very decent cafeteria, they have a very healthy/delicious meat and vegetable wrap center. At the hot food area, the pizza is pretty gross , however I like the Jamaican Beef patties. I've seen ads that they are developing a bunch of local healthy food chains into the school within a year, so when that comes up I think it will deserve 4 stars.

    Dorm Life

    There really aren't dorms in this community college, I do not know many that there are, but there are apartments being developed on the same street as the campus for those who wish to live right on the school.

    Academic Rigor

    Many classes are very difficult, which is truly what you want in a community college, as you will actually learn about the subject you are studying. Be prepared to work, and the harder you work the more benefits you reap.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research your professors beforehand, because there are fantastic ones and terrible ones. The education is in the professor, not the institution. Always be striving to discover your passion if you haven't already, it's the one thing you truly need to know before graduating.

    In three sentences

    A big school with lots of opportunities, and lots of friends to make. There are great professors, and some mediocre, so do your research and homework before signing up for everything. Take the time and go to your advisers and financial aid offices, to make sure you're making the most of your time and money at Broward College.

    Tips for prospective students

    Choosing the right teacher will take you the farthest in your education. Don't pay too much attention to the negative comments some people may say about a professor or class. Study and take time to learn your material before class to get the most out of it.

    In three sentences

    Great teachers who really want you to succeed. I had a Micro Lab teacher who would spend his Saturdays at school teaching Lecture because he knew how to lay out the material for anyone to understand. Only con is the smoking areas should be further away from class rooms.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm life at Broward College but I suppose sleeping in your vehicle before and after class can count.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors care but are not lenient on poor effort and laziness. Nothing is difficult if sufficient amount of effort and critical thinking is put in. To study is a job, a routine and a lifestyle one must accept to truly succeed and understand the material required to be able to apply to real situations.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of all opportunity that Broward College has to offer. Stay attentive and keep up with the studies to ensure a healthy college life. Treat each assignment, quiz and test seriously to ensure that the knowledge required, is acquired and never forgotten.

    Am learning a lot

    YOu cannot deny that for it being a Community College, it is a great school. There are more proffesors than you could possibly count, and yes there are their share of bad ones, but there are some fantastic professors who really know their stuff! Free tutoring, labs and workshops help you get the advantage you need to really succeed in your classes. For a Community College, the education is top-notch.

    In general, as long as you stay on top of things, the classes are all easy enough to pass, if not ace. For many, acing isn't too difficult either. If a class seems far above your own skill level, check to see if there isn't a lower level class which fulfills the same requirement.

    Tips for prospective students

    As infuriating as it can be, check and double check everything with guidance. Many of the people working there will brush you off to other advisers, or simply not give you very clear answers. You must be persistent if you want an accurate portrait of what is going on.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms exist at Broward College.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the course and professor, academic rigor varies even with a set curriculum. Students planning on attending Broward College, or any college for that matter, should never be under the impression that since it is not a state University, that obtaining their degree will be a walk in the park. Instead, they should anticipate having to put time in for studying and completing assignments like any other academic institution.

    In three sentences

    Broward College has become more popular than ever since they made the transition from a community college. With renovations to the main campus and new degree programs coming out on a regular basis, Broward College has begun to attract more prospective students than ever. Since they started offering Bachelor's degrees, many who desire to go back to school are now able to with BC's flexible courses. There are a wide range of options as far as degree majors and available courses. The advisement staff is always there, on multiple campuses, to assist students and direct them down the right educational path.

    Campus Safety

    There is a safety box every couple of yard. (If someone is in trouble and rings it security is suppose to arrive in a certain amount of time.) The most I have seen a campus officer do is regulate how many students can enter the bookstore. However they do jump your car for free!

    Clubs and Activities

    This is the way to get to know people! Regardless of your passion, you WILL find a club to fit your needs. The only problem I have found is that club meetings tend to coincide with classes. This means you either have to be a scheduling master or miss meeting/ class.

    Great for these types of students

    Broward College has so many different types of students and learners. It can be very popular for high school students as a dual enrollment program. These students enjoy the program even though it can be tough. Many students are parents. Due to Browards variety in classes and class times it it easy for full time parents or workers to incorporate classes into their schedule.

    Bang for the buck

    As a commuter college Broward can save you a lot! I suggest you wait a week or two before buying a book. Most teachers want a specific up to date book that can cost an arm and a leg. Waiting will allow you to see if the you REALLY need the book or if the teacher is just strongly suggesting it. If it is crucial try chegg (you can return it within 21 days no questions asked!).

    What to do for fun

    Broward Colleges are open and spacious. This allows students to picnic out in the lawn or play frisbee between classes. For those who love the indoors each campus has a student life center incorporates all of a 21st century students needs, such as: t.v.s, gaming centers, board games, and even ping pong.

    Food and Dining

    There are not many options on campus for food. However the options that they do have are very versatile. There campuses tend to be in densely populated areas, as well. So those who do not like the options given at campus can easily find food close to campus.

    Dorm Life

    Broward College is a commuter college and does not have any dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Regular classes can be boring and self-taught; however honors classes are thought provoking. These classes go beyond the textbook and most allow the the students and teacher to grow through discussion.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved! Broward College can be fun when you know the people around you. BC offers any club and sport you can imagine. For someone to not get involved in the campus and its activities they need to TRY to be antisocial. Broward Central Campus tends to be the most academically focused and friendliest from my point of view.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you go into college, don't play around. This is your future at risk so the longer you play around is the longer you will stay there and the more money you will have to pay. Have fun, learn from your experiences but at the end of the day, get your work done.

    Campus Safety

    The parking lots on every campus have signs that tell you to lock your doors and remove valuables from your car. These signs lead me to believe the campus parking lots are unsafe. However, the Central Campus always had Davie police roaming about and, the Downtown Center has security on duty at all times.

    What to do for fun

    Broward College usually has something going on every week. The school newspaper has articles about whats going on at the school. The Central Campus has a gym, pool, and a student life center for people to interact in.

    Laid back students. Quiet and load students. Smokers (they have smoking areas). Studen't who aren't sure they want to go to a large university but still don't want to get cheated. Mothers (they have a day care on all campuses). Everyone.

    If you are here for your AA its well worth it. Specially if you are on financial aid. They also have various opportunities to sell your books. People are friendly, but my schedule doesn't allow me to really form lasting bonds.

    What to do for fun

    I normally go home and hang out with friends or read and sleep. Since there are a lot of fast food places you can hang out there. You can also join the various clubs they have on campus, hang by the large duck pond on both Central and South campuses, hang with friends in the grass or sit in the gazebos. Campus is pretty laid back,

    Food and Dining

    I've never eaten in the actual cafeteria. The food smells nice though. I mostly eat off campus. They have a Wendy's, McDonals, Burger King, and a few sub shops near campus. There is a Dunking Donuts both off and on campus. If you are willing to make a short drive toward sterling there is a Panda Express, Pollo Tropical, Steak and Shake, Chipettes and other fast food places. Target is located in the Sterling Plaza as well.

    Dorm Life

    I live with my family. I have no problems. So my dorm life is great. I commute to school and back because I don't live far. I have gone house hunting. The houses in the area aren't close to the campuses that I attend, Central, North, and South. Even so, I wouldn't get one because the rent is way out of my budget. Some 989 and up. Broward College doesn't provide housing.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm only here for my AA degree. So far the work isn't all too difficult. That doesn't mean you shouldn't study. If you don't study, you will fail even the easiest of classes. I should also note that certain classes require more effort. My classes are easy because I study and my major doesn't require demanding work.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's a good school to get your general requirment's knocked out (AA). You should handle your financial aid BEFORE you apply and check in with advisment every once in awhile. Keep track of your schedule online. Seriously, watch that sucker. I can't tell you how they did me wrong with some of my courses that I applied to early. By the time I realized what they did, I was blocked out of the class. I got back in because THEY made the mistake not me. Lastly, BE FORCEFUL but not a douche bag. If you know something is amiss, open your mouth and speak up for yourself. They will try to tell you things can't be done until x amount of time (lie), but if you speak up, they will see what they can do.

    In three sentences

    Track your schedule, the advisors won't call you. Safety is great, they send up to date notices if anything is wrong. Work, it gets pretty boring so keep morale up.

    Overall, pass your classes, don't blend-in to the 'lame, quiet, and don't care' crowd that seems to exist in every class. Do well, distinguish yourself, even if you are a quiet type, many of us are. Also, here's an important tid-bit, If you're not doing well in a class early, I highly recommend you keep attention to the 'drop' and 'withdrawal' dates. GET OUT OF THE CLASS INSTEAD OF FAIL IT. If you're doing bad early while applying your average or usual input into 'the material', get out and deal with that class another semester. I didn't stand a chance in a certain MATH class, decided to try harder, failed, and it's greatly hurt my GPA ever since. My 3.something is a 2.77 because I failed one class - it took a long time to recover!.

    What to do for fun

    In student life, there's usually video games being played on north campus. In that room also is a pool table and big screen with dvd's near. There's a fitness bi-room, auditorium (that hosts events), library, and multiple clubs/associations (I believe). Talking is the most common activity of entertainment, though , as far as I know these days.

    Food and Dining

    You can chill and have consume if you want. Specific places for that are on campus, and so you and many others can do the same thing, in the same place if desired. Dining outside an option too, ofcourse. Teachers usually have their rules toward consumption in class.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms at Broward college,.

    Academic Rigor

    Homework isn't extensive. All of it has purpose, and with that being, is beneficial. Classwork assists the lesson. Having a sharp memory can benefit students invaluably.

    Tips for prospective students

    Many told me blah, blah...you'll have to study and blah, blah, college is hard - their day/account isn't today's, in my view. Things are comfortable, maybe unless you're not satisfactory enough at time management or do alot of walking to get back and forth. Ending up with a preferred professor is imperative, the professor can leave you with a more 'aggresive' experience. Generally though, in every class, there's they lazy people, the complainers, those not as bright, the one's who distinguish...Overall, I'm enjoying my Broward educational time.

    In three sentences

    Broward's pretty comfortable (- I attend North Campus). The teachings all utilized what you've learned through grade school and incorporate 'collegiate difficulty'. Unless you're a more 'closed' person, you'll encounter more of the world than prior, as some call it, 'the real world', but just a bit.

    Located in Lima, Peru, which is unusual for any university that is originally from the States.

    Bang for the buck

    I believe the program is totally worth it and better than other because even if it the workload is not so demanding, in the end it will let me got into a US university, which can be better than a peruvian one.

    What to do for fun

    There is no fun inside the university, but you can go out with friends. There is a mall quite close to the university.

    Food and Dining

    The program is hosted by a Peruvian university and inside they have a cafeteria. The menu is alright and really cheap which is good, but there is not much variety.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms since the campus is really small and also in Peru most, if not all, universities do not have dorms. You could rent an apartment but that is not very common.

    Not as good as I would like it to be. They teach us important stuff but the homework and work in general is not very demanding (at least not the first semester)

    Tips for prospective students

    Try to keep your GPA as high as you possibly can, since that is a really easy task in Broward and it will help you transfer easily. Also, making friends will be quite easy for you so do not worry about that.

    Campus Safety

    Central Campus- You don't always feel particularily safe, but that's just because you're at a college that feels mostly deserted and open and dark at night. Basically, it's an illusion, they have emergency call boxes and security is always there to escort you to your car at night. It's also pretty well lit. Security often patrols the campus constantly and wait with the people taking the bus. They check inside the buildings and everything. Plus, take comfort that the local police, Davie Police, are usually there. Since that's where most police take training to become officers, and there are usually a couple officers on campus, it keeps people from wanting to do stupid stuff. There hasn't been much crime or violence or something to my knowledge other than people stealing from cars (because people don't lock their car doors) and the school texts and/or calls all students on a particular campus if there is a lock down.

    Greek Life

    none

    Clubs and Activities

    Considering that it's a community college, they give away lots of scholarships, have lots of contests for free electronics and money. There's free condoms in the student life center, movie night, a huge variety of clubs and an Army ROTC program.

    Great for these types of students

    broke, hard working students trying to cheapen their degree while working, possibly before transfering; hard working students getting a degree before they enlist in the military; parents trying to go back to school; lazy students who act like its still high school and have the maturity to match.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    at the end of winter and fall terms when the 3-d students put up statues and kinetic sculptures on campus for their finals.

    Bang for the buck

    being close to south florida, a possibilty at a great education at a cheaper price than the college you are transferring to, being close to family and having the ability to live with them if you need support, and having the college experience (minus the dorms and greek) if you chose to. this school is really what you make of it.

    What to do for fun

    bowling, a few local clubs, movies, comic book stores, shopping, the mall, laserquest, paintball, boomers, arcades, gun shooting ranges, archery ranges and all the nightlife and glory of local downtown Ft. Lauderdale and not that far off Miami.

    Food and Dining

    Central Campus- Yeah there's just a cafeteria and vending machines on campus, which is a 2 because of price and availabilty, but there are tons of local resturaunts and fast food places in the area with plenty of variety for food options, as well as two close Publix's if you want grocery food or your classroom has a microwave available for use (some do, it's just getting to know the professor and using it between classes).

    Dorm Life

    There is no on campus housing, although central campus which has 3 other universities in the area has plenty of local houses and apartment complexes catering to the local students. If you are closer to Nova it will be extra expensive because it's next to NSU, but nicer (for the most part). The cheaper side is near BC, but be warned, some of the housing is really shady.

    Academic Rigor

    This depends on you, if you take hard classes where you will learn and the teacher is strict and knowledgeable you will get a 4 or maybe 5 star academic education. If you take slacker classes where you won't learn anything, the teacher won't teach and won't care you will get a 1 or 2 star education. It will easy, but you will have wasted years and money to have learned nothing about your future career. Your choice.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always do your homework on what classes you need to take, the guidance counselor visits are mandatory but not productive. They assume the position that you should know what classes you need to take for your degree and know how to choose the correct degree or program for what you want to do in life. Do not expect them to know anything or help you because they wonâ??t, and if you think they did, you just got jipped. They do not allow this on campus when first registering for classes but look up your potential professors at ratemyprofessor.com or koofers.com preferably beforehand, but if not after and change classes if you donâ??t like the reviews. Donâ??t buy textbooks in classes where reviews specified that the teacher did not use or require the textbook, and wait on ones that the teacher or reviews donâ??t specify that you need them the first day. Itâ??s cheaper to buy books at local textbook stores (some rent!) or online. Carpooling and car naps are your friend. Bring lunch or eat at a local fast food establishment (some, like subway or dairyqueen give discounts for being students).

    In three sentences

    If you are looking for a quality education, check through your professors carefully, some may have/currently worked at your original choice school but some professors are worse than high school teachers at knowledge and discipline so watch out, ratemyprofessor.com is your friend. It's absolutely impossible to get your credits though, the classes are always full and it will take you weeks of watching and patience to get the classes you need, if you are able; however some neat services that BC has such as submitting papers early to be critiqued by an English professor and the tutoring services really help. I've been informed that recently the classes are more expenses than regular colleges such as FAU, but price does not change quality, be warned that the library closes 15 minutes earlier than closing time and including the testing center and tutoring (Learning Community Resource), do your homework before visiting a guidance counselor on 1. what is generally taught to get your degree at the university you are transferring to, 2. What is required to get your degree at BC, 3. any credits you will need to take to properly transfer to the school of your choice, because none of them are helpful unless you are going for one of BC's star degrees (basically anything they offer a bachelorâ??s degree in)â??they donâ??t even know all the classes available at BC or anything about the other degrees offered at BC, your financial aid checks will come late every semester, mark my words, so plan accordingly.

    Academic Rigor

    Broward College has many honors course like any other colleges, when I first arrived to this school I though it was going to be easy because I said it's a community college but I was wrong the class are indeed college level and you do have to study. I think this institution does prepare you for your transfer school.

    Food and Dining

    I do not eat on campus but my brother does and he enjoys it. It is a little overpriced to me so I enjoy my usual taco bell, mcdonalds and kfc during breaks.

    Dorm Life

    They do not have dorms on campus but that's ok because my house isn't too far and they have bus routes for those who do not have a car.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on which professors you take. I like learning so I take professors who do not teach, but aren't rude either. You learn as much as you want to. A lot of colleges use the same books Broward uses-they just expect less because it is a community college. The information is still there at your fingertips so you choose to go as far as you want.

    Tips for prospective students

    Rent your books online to save money or buy them a week or two before classes start because the line for the bookstore can keep you there for HOURS. Get use to doing everything early because financial aid takes a long time to process and classes fill up quickly.

    Broward has a variety of classes to fit your busy schedule and plenty of people to meet there.

    Though the staff is there to always help you, it is always helpful to have some sense of how to help yourself.

I have seen students get food from other places, like Taco Bell, Mcdonalds. So there are options available.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a copy of the General Florida Requirements and try to stay on track for whatever program you are in.

    Food and Dining

    Broward College offers indeed 5 star food and beverages! From its variety of hot food, snacks and coffee and breakfast items, sandwiches, soups and salads. Broward College certainly equips much of the food sources, beverages that college students need in order to survive the in depth but attainable journey of college. In fact, as soon as you enter Broward College campus, the food and dining areas are easy to find; also there are vending machines all around the campus just in case someone needs to replenish his or herself before or after class. Undoubtedly, the food is served with great quality and the dining area serves a comfortable, clean environment with a big screen television.

    Dorm Life

    Although Broward College doesn't have on-campus living, the great diversity of people who attend campus during various class hours, as well as the compelling nature on campus surely fills in that void. Furthermore, Broward College offers different intermission, social places on campus which is certainly is a necessity during busy class hours.

    Academic Rigor

    Broward College has a fairly lenient academic rigor. At Broward College the academic policy varies, based on; the amount of academic progress a student is exemplifying towards his or her degree also, the program of study grade point average. For example, if a student entered Broward College with a 3.0 grade point average, which met his or her program of study grade point average. However, after he or she took a course and failed it, in result; caused his or her grade point average to decrease to a 2.3 instead of a 3.0. Students would still have the chance to pursue his or her program of study at Broward College, but only unless he or she increases the decreased grade point average, lest being subject to academic probation. In addition, based on students required program of study grade point average, he or she is entitled to maintain the required GPA; according to his or her major, as stated it varies on students major.

Not to mention there are always events going around campus to win food and prizes and get students involved in campus life. There are movie nights as well as game nights. It's a college that puts its students and faculty first.

    Food and Dining

    The variety of food at Broward college is next to none. Everyday there is something new on the menu. Jamaican Beef Patties, Subs, Chicken with Rice and Beans are some of the excellent food choices that the cafe serves almost everyday.

    Academic Rigor

    Broward College will challenge you in all aspects of your educational endeavors. Professors there will try to get the best out of their students, while providing top of the notch facilitation. Expect to be on time, ready to learn and get most out of you or your parent's paycheck.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should sit down with a guidance counselor at least once a year so that can see if they are on track towards graduation, as well as to get advice on plans after receiving their diploma. They should also consider the effectiveness of time management especially since most will hold different roles while they are in college.That will be one of their key ingredients in driving their success while in school.

    From my perspective I haven't experienced any safety issues. So it must be good.

    Greek Life

    There isn't a Greek life. This college used to be a community college

    Clubs and Activities

    Not much people are involved in the clubs and activities because this school is mainly for people who just want to get a degree.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for people who want to get a degree or finish a program that fits their specific needs.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There isn't anything unusual about this school. It's pretty bland.

    Bang for the buck

    Like any upper graduate schools it takes money to take classes. So if you don't have any means of income or can't get the FAFSA Pell grant then you would have to take out a loan. That's if you really want to go to school no matter what.

    What to do for fun

    You can join clubs.

    Food and Dining

    They do have cafeterias but they're not the greatest.

    Dorm Life

    There isn't a dorm life because there aren't any dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    If you can put all of your time and focus into school and classes then you will be successful. If not then you might be mediocre or just not successful at all.

    Campus Safety

    Pretty safe and sound. In my two year of being a student at Broward college, i never inquired an experience where my safety or the safety of others were on the line. It is always under control. Broward college also does a BC test alert every now and then to make sure their alert system is ready in any emergency situation.

    What to do for fun

    Go to Davie central campus, they have a gym of free access when providing your BC ID. You can also watch a movie in the student life area or go on social media for as long as you wish in the library!

    Food and Dining

    If you're into fast food, like burgers and pizza, you will love the cafeteria at the central campus located in Davie. However, if you're mr/mrs healthy, then bring in your food with you. Downtown campus also does not have a cafeteria, just a small corner shop where you can get soft drinks and donuts; it's also expensive.

    Dorm Life

    One of the negative aspects of Broward College is not providing dorms for it's students. Unfortunately, only off-campus living is available.

    Academic Rigor

    Very convenient. Most of the professors are nice if you choose them well, and are willing to help you pass and succeed in your classes. However, you will have to study!

    Tips for prospective students

    Always register for classes earlier in order to get the best professors and the most convenient classes for you. Always search the name of the professor in a website called www.ratemyprofessor.com ; believe it or not, most of the reviews are true, and the better the ratings of professors, the better your chance of receiving an A on your class!

    Students who like to get their education at their own pace, Broward college is for you. You have the freedom to pick classes that suite you at the right time of day and you have two terms; term A and B with which you may choose your classes for, say, The Fall. You can take breaks and pick right back up where you left off.

    Bang for the buck

    Over-all Broward college is a �¢����bang for your buck�¢����; offering beautiful campuses around Broward county. They offer an offordable yet quality education with personal attention given to each student. The institution offers many clubs, events, and classes to keep you entertained.

    What to do for fun

    Broward college offers a variety of clubs and classes that you can attend and take for fun. The college offers at least two business clubs that I am aware of, several dance classes, exercise classes, cooking classes, and many more. The lack of an official football team or basketball team is a hard pill to swallow for most college enthusiasts.

    Food and Dining

    Broward College has places where you can enjoy great food and drinks such as Dunk-in�¢���� Donuts and Starbucks. The school also has its own cafeteria where you can eat comfortably or just hang out. Unfortunately, you�¢����ll find only a small handful of restaurants on campus offering food that may be a bit over-priced.

    Academic Rigor

    At Broward college, you can expect some classes that will challenge you a bit. You should also expect classes that may be at a slower pace than at other schools. Your friends at other institutions may complain constantly but I do believe a little more rigor is necessary to help you prepare for a very competitive work environment upon graduation.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should always have a notepad and pen. Information comes fast and you never know when you�¢����ll need to write down something vital to your success. Check your email and USPS mail often because more information may be there.

    In three sentences

    If you are looking for a school that is student oriented, affordable, and that offers a quality education, Broward college is for you. The staff at Broward college take pleasure in giving you their time to make life in college manageable. The school is affordable at only $16,000 per year and the education Broward college has been rated a top community school in the nation.

However, the one reason that I left is because I truly wanted the genuine university experience.

    The events ( mostly on Wed. and Thur. at about 12:30) after a class will really refresh your energy. They have free lunch ceremonies and sports events to keep everyone PUMPED for their next class.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would tell students that are looking to attend Broward College to STUDY. No one is going to give you a pass just because of a great smile; if it is worth the effort, it is worth working hard to obtain it. I would also remind them that it is really a warm environment that is full of people that CARE about your future. Now thats rare for a college!

    Broward is an affordable community college that offers a lot to students pursing a higher education. The staff and teachers have all been helpful and very informative my whole time here. Also, they make it very easy to seek help wether it be in math or a writing class.

    College is essentially for education, and Broward College does sufficient to provide good enough quality in that area, but information is not easily available.

    What to do for fun

    Sometimes there are some interesting events but the only way students are informed about them is through flyers hung around the school that can easily be missed.

    Food and Dining

    There are barely any healthy options available, in the cafeteria or in the snack machines. Someone who is vegan, lactose-intolerant, or has an intolerance of gluten will have very little options if any.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    It is quite challenging and classes are relevant to the material most of the time. Sometimes, it is too easy because the teachers provide the exact information that will be questioned on the test and quizzes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Collect as many flyers as you can to get informed about the different opportunities at Broward and always seek an advisor to consult with regarding any decision you make.

    I think Broward College lacks a sense of community. The quality of education is good enough with quite competent and passionate professors. The environment is very clean but may lack some life to it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you use your resources properly. For instance, there is a gym located in campus to help you exercise which is free, and once again I insist the tutoring program will be your most important tool in order to pass all your classes.

    Broward college is an excellent college to attend simply because the professors are highly qualified personnels who take their time to teach the material correctly. Also the most important reason that makes broward college so excellent is their tutoring program. Ive come to notice that the tutors place an honest effort and passion into helping students understand the material that is being taught in class.

    I recommend looking through teacher reviews before selecting a teacher. It's good to have student feedback, this gives students the opportunity to find the perfect instructor based on how they learn a subject.

    Food and Dining

    The school has a Dunkin Donuts, one of my favorite places to eat while on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I currently live off campus

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers aren't here to hold your hand and walk you thru college so I recommend that you take advantage of all resources. Deadlines must be followed, turn in all course work on time and completed entirely. Once you've missed one assignment its extremely hard to bring up your grade in that class. Keep copies of each class syllabus as a reminder for due dates for assignments and tests.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never lose focus; and avoid procrastination by any means necessary

    Broward College, in my opinion, is a very great school. They have plenty of resources for students to achieve academic success. So far all of my instructors have been wonderful, showing that they are willing to extra mile for students.

    You're getting what you paid for. Attending Broward college is much cheaper than attending any other university and they don't require much from us, so yes the school isn't as up to scale as anyone would wish for. The scenery is nice though, being that it's located in south Florida they have the perfect opportunity to plant nice trees and keep the grass nice and green.

    What to do for fun

    Personally I enjoy going to the gym on campus, It has a great amount of space and equipment to use. Besides that there are some pretty good clubs you can join as well if you have to time to be involved on campus I highly recommend it.

    Food and Dining

    Recently they've built a dunkin donuts and a subways, so one step at a time and they'll have a more appealing food service.. With that being said though there are a bunch of different food choices at walking distance from the school like a Wendys, Chipotle and Pollo Tropical.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately there aren't dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Picking a professor is very important but it's not everything. You get the grade you deserve. Since it is a college and not a university some of the professors do cut you some slack but that doesn't mean it'll be easy. Work for it and you will succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep an open mind. If you keep putting the school down and listening to others that's exactly what you'll get out of it. Keep your focus and remember your purpose.

    Broward college is like a book, don't judge the cover. At first glance it may seem unworthy of your attention but it's actually way better than what it seems and for the price your paying you shouldn't complain.

    Campus Safety

    There is a police department right by the Central campus so safety is just a step away, and security and police are evident there.

    Clubs and Activities

    Like I said not the strongest suit here, but then again I haven't attended anywhere else so I could just have a higher expectation for how clubs should be. But during the fall semester the campus has the most events. We have fall festival where C.A.B. will set up a number of events for student fun.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a cheap affordable college. Any other college within Florida will have you spending more dollars. It's a great way to get your basic classes and prerequisites done with the option of transfer viable if you do wish to attend a more prestigious or serious college.

    What to do for fun

    If the fun and crazy college life is what you're looking for, in this case you'll kinda be out of luck. There are clubs to tamper into and student events, but these events are only mildlyfun, not to say that there aren't any to benefit from. There are. But there are no really strong clubs, as some feel without goal. There are things to do though. They have a small game room, gym and pool all free so long as you are enrolled and these can be fun. A great mention is that Tiger Tail is free for B.C. students on designated days.

    Food and Dining

    There's plenty of areas to eat around the Central Campus, however the cafeteria itself is weak. They have added Subway which strengthened the cafeteria and a Dunkin donuts to enjoy in the library which would be like your cafe in a Barnes and Nobles, but other than that, the main school lunch is okay at best.

    Dorm Life

    I can't give a fair evaluation to this as I go to school from home, however there are dorms that are directly across from the Central Campus. However most students that you are likely to encounter are students who live locally in the area. The fun and crazy college life isn't something you should be looking for in B.C. which is what some people want.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes have that college rigor, with that some classes will be relatively easy, but that with the the subject area and professor as with anywhere you go. It is no Harvard, but it is a college needless to say. You will learn and you will be challenged, sometimes it can be eased or tensed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you take advantage of Financial Aid as you'll potentially save money or end up paying nothing for your classes and books, and luckily the campus has an office dedicated to assistance in Financial Aid so it is something that can be taken advantage of.

    In three sentences

    Broward College is a great college with many linking campuses making it diverse and accessible. Perhaps the strongest point of BC is affordability. You'll get a quality education and get plenty in what you paid for although it surely doesn't have that prestige and glamour that other Universities pride themselves in.

Don't be afraid to ask questions and research the professors and their style. Take advantages of their services, office hours and online programs.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nothing that I know of.

    Bang for the buck

    So much bang for the buck!!! Like I said before, the price of tuition and what you get for that money (small class sizes and individual time with your professors) is unparalleled! My psychology professor calls it the Harvard of community colleges ! Most of the professors also teach at other major universities in the area and they would tell us all the time that the people going to those schools are getting the exact same class but paying three times the price!

    What to do for fun

    They had events going on near the cafeteria from time to time where they would play music and give out free popcorn but I honestly wasn't there to hang out and have fun. It's more of a go to class... study for a bit... go home... kind of place.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay. They recently started adding popular dining places such as Dunkin Donuts and Subway which was nice. The DD is essential to studying in the library. It was definitely a life saver during my last two semesters there.

    Dorm Life

    Broward College doesn't have any dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Like I said before, you need to take responsibility for understanding the material being taught to you. The general courses that I took at Broward College were similar to high school, re-iterating what I already knew and building upon that a little bit, but it still took time and effort to get my assignments done. Once I started getting into upper-level courses that is when things got hard. I had to spend a lot of time in the library studying and making flash cards. There is a lot of material to be learned, especially if you are going into a science major, but the small class sizes and one on one time with the professors helps immensely. Almost all of my professors invited students to come see them during their office hours to ask any questions or get help on anything we needed extra attention with.

    Tips for prospective students

    Transitioning from high school to college can be a difficult task. One thing I would suggest is to begin teaching yourself essentially. You don't get homework nearly as much as you would back in high school, if any at all; so you need to take responsibility for making sure you understand the material being taught to you. The professor can only go so far with only 3 months with you. Never skip a class, even if you think it may not be important; it is!! You may miss some vital information that day and it is much harder to play catch up than you think. Take advantage of the small class sizes and one on one time with your professors, you won't find that at any other university.

    In three sentences

    Broward College is a great college for students looking to stay local and continue their education. Class sizes are usually very small and most of the professors are very passionate and care about the success of their students. The price of tuition and what you get for that price can't be beat.

    Bang for the buck

    One definitely can get a bang for the buck at Broward College because of the cheap classes with equal education. Attending this school for at least one year, maybe even two, is highly recommended for those that do not have a definite career path yet.

    What to do for fun

    Broward College isn't like other Universities in that there is a lot to do. Broward College is a college that has several campuses and because of this, there isn't a big campus for massive events. However, around these areas, there are places to get jobs to help you earn money for food, book,s and tuition.

    Food and Dining

    I do not eat on campus

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    There are some really great professors that are willing to help you learn at Broward College. Some of these professors have taught at other universities which makes this school a decent place to start your college career. Essentially, you can acquire the same education for a lower price at Broward College than any other school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of the relaxed nature of this school by understanding the material you're ;earning and by studying and asking the professors questions that you would like to have the answers to. Do not just expect to get by in these classes for it will come back to haunt you when transferring to other Universities.

    In three sentences

    Broward College is a great college for a student who is new to college and is undecided on their major. Broward College is also a great school for those that cannot afford to attend other major universities. Finally, Broward College is also a great college to start college and build a decent GPA in order to be accepted into other Universities.

    Campus Safety

    This is difficult for me to write about. I haven't had any personal problems with campus safety but I know there are alot of dangerous situations at BC. The god thing is they have a great BC alert system for the students. As soon as a problem has been found, students receive phone calls and texts about the problem.

    Bang for the buck

    I think BC courses are a good value. In one of my classes I had a professor who also taught the same exact class at Nova and FIU but we pay a fraction of the price of those schools.

    What to do for fun

    Student life offers alot of events. Almost every month there are evets at central campus with free food and entertainment. Tigertail Recreational center also gives free admission to Broard College students.

    Food and Dining

    I've never personally been in the cafeteria but I know there is a Subway on central campus. There is also a fully functional Dunkin Donuts in the library at Central.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at BC.

    Academic Rigor

    The regular classes at BC are not difficult. Study and do your assignments. Many professors are willing to work with you and will extend deadlines if needed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be influenced by your classmates! Many students at Broward College are there because they don't want to put much effort into their work. Be a good student. Also ask lots of questions at the Registration and Financial Aid offices! There are lots of scholarship and financial aid opportunities but you have to ask about them. If you can, join the Honors Institute. They give great scholarships, have a free book rental service, and offer smaller/more intensive classes.

    In three sentences

    Great Honors Program. Does a lot of student events/activities through student life. Many students don't care about an education.

    The main campus has a Subway, Dunkin Donuts, and cafeteria but if youre looking for anything special, not going to find it on this campus. Plenty of options near the school but other than that, food and dining is poor.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms on campus. People attending this school are doing so in order to save money. People post about having apartments and looking for roommates but overall, the dorm like is non-existent.

    Academic Rigor

    Overall, classes can be hard if you do not take them seriously. Teachers want you to do well and compared to other universities, I believe classes to be easier and not as demanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you first attend the college, you must ask as many questions as you can. Information is key to making well-informed decisions on everything from classes to clubs. Take advantages of all the services and events happening to make whatever time you choose to stay at this college an enjoyable experience.

    In three sentences

    Great teachers can be found if one is willing to look, and possibly travel to different campuses, for them. This may not be your dream school, but it is far less expensive and will grant you the same benefits of other universities. Overall, the experience is one I would recommend and I believe this school to be very good.

    Campus Safety

    I've attended day and evening classes and never got mugged or raped, so I guess it's a safe school.

    Great for these types of students

    Someone who is willing to overlook the so-so education and is willing to teach his/herself in order to complete their goals. I highly recommend taking as many of the classes online as you possibly can. In your first semester, If you are taking three classes, make one an online class to get the feel for it. Then strictly attend online classes. You'll save gas, time, money, and you don't have to struggle with the parking issues. If you're going to teach yourself anyway, why not do it from home?

    Bang for the buck

    It's inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.

    Food and Dining

    I don't hang around long enough to enjoy the on campus cafes.

    Dorm Life

    They don't have dorms. This school just converted from community college to college.

    Academic Rigor

    For most of my classes, I basically breezed through. I was never one for school, but I wanted to afford myself better opportunities in life. As I took class after class at BC, I came to realize that the school was just a joke. I can't remember how many of these classes that I attended without ever opening a textbook. The instructors require that you buy the textbooks before class begins, but most of them don't even work from the textbook; they just wing it. I wasted a lot of money on books that I never even used, but at least was able to sell them online. Do this: Read review after review and look at all of the mistakes in grammar. These are college students writing these reviews. Do the same at ratemyprofessor.com. Check out the reviews for the Broward College english teachers and you'll see so many reviews where the students state that they passed with a reasonable grade, but pay attention to the grammar errors. These people passed a college level english class with those errors. If I were a professor, I would have failed those students without hesitation. Good old Broward College.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do lots of research before enrolling into ANY college. It's just for the piece of paper that can get you a better job. If you really want to learn something, (After you are enrolled in a school) put in the best effort for yourself and research the instructors (Use ratemyprofessor.com, etc.) before enrolling into any of their classes. That will make a world of difference. Most instructors at BC seem tired and withdrawn or overly enthusiastic without teaching much, just a lot of story telling. You have to be driven to learn and be willing to teach yourself in order to get by. I've had instructors who just run a powerpoint presentation on a screen and read it to the class (As if the students can't read for themselves), day in, day out. If I had to do it all over again, I never would have enrolled with BC. I could have done better for myself, but it's too late now. I'm in too deep.

    In three sentences

    It's inexpensive. It's fairly easy to enroll. It's just another bottom feeder school.

    Campus Safety

    I haven't witnesses or experienced any major safety factors since I've been attending Broward College. The campus safety is pretty good. There is security and BSO on campus at all times.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are numerous clubs and activities every school year at Broward College. I'm not sure of every one of them, but if your interested then check out their website. I know once a week they have music outside the cafe, which is great for student life.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for undergraduate students seeking affordable tuition. No one wants to spend over thirty thousand dollars on a Bachelor's. At Broward College you may spend under ten thousand on your Bachelor's. Also, since the class sizes are not packed students can get a lot of help from the professors.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is very affordable compared to other state colleges. If you are looking to save money, Broward College is the school of choice.

    What to do for fun

    There are numerous activities, sports, and plays going on throughout the school year. If that doesn't intrigue you, then go to the beach. Some campuses are not as close to the beach, but those ones are close to downtown Ft. Lauderdale. You will definitely have fun there.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining is ok. Every campus has a subway and their own cafe. I guess it all depends on the individual if they food is good or not. Subway is very affordable for the students and at central campus there is a Dunkin Donuts inside the library. The only issue that I have is that the school's cafe closes early. No need to worry because Subway is still open.

    Dorm Life

    I'm not sure because I've never lived on campus. In fact I'm not even sure if they have dorms. If they do not, it's not a problem because there are affordable living places at every campus. It may be better for you to live off campus because you can gain residency within a year which will bring down your out of state tuition.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are very flexible with the students. If a student has any issues with deadlines, the professors are absolutely willing to allow extra time to help their students. Most of the professor that I have had are very knowledgable in the subject that they are teaching and are willing to go the extra mile to help the students.

    I really enjoy attending Broward College. The tuition is low and the classroom environment is great. The class sizes are not big, so your able to get lots of feedback from the professors. As of right now I am in the Teacher Education Program which I believe is the best program they offer, because the TEP faculty is amazing.

I would like to have the finances needed in order to have my own space again but have sacrificed my time, effort, and determination in the complete pursuit of my future success in an elevated education.

    Academic Rigor

    I never failed to learn quality information from each teacher. Teachers always use well defined vocabulary to specify the work needed to be a successful student. Progressive process learning is used to keep students in balance with the classes that are to follow.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't fear any class or subject even if your not do not strive in that subject. Their are many open tutor sessions, teachers are aware of students lacking knowledge and are always available during office hours. Other students or class mates can benefit from working together to learn.

    It's a pretty small campus.

    Obviously this isn't a name brand school, and part of this is filed under the you get what you pay for category. It's a community college and thus the opportunities here aren't that abundant. With that being said, I feel that this school adequately prepared me for my future at the University of Florida. Broward College is a great jumping point, and is a great place to learn how to deal with the stresses and freedoms of college life.

    Academic Rigor

    It was not tough. You had just have to schedule in study time and play time.

    Tips for prospective students

    You will save a lot of money by enrolling into a two year college, like Broward College. Your first two years are the same at every university or college, so why not enroll in a public community college and save money. Unless you were awarded a full-time scholarship at a private or public university, then by all means start your freshman and sophomore year at that university. However, if you were not awarded a full-time scholarship at a university, I would advise enroll at a public community college if you're looking to avoid an increment of student loans.

    In three sentences

    My experience at Broward College was a blessing. The two years I spent was free due to due dual enrollment and financial aid. I had awesome teachers that had an outgoing personality and were always available to help their students.
