    Bakersfield college gets a bad reputation because a lot of students do not graduate from there, but Bakersfield College does not deserve the negative feedback. The staff at Bakersfield college by far is - its strongest asset, the staff cares about student learning and a lot of them helped me out even outside of their work time.

    A great and inexpensive school to help students paying for their own tuition. Counselors are great if you give them time to help you figure out what you want to achieve.

    Bakersfield college is a nice community college, but has rather large classes, and is over populated. It is very difficult to enroll in the classes you need when too many people are trying to get into the same class.

    I've had some of the most amazing and intelligent professors at this school. The campus is very accessible and I've never had a problem finding a parking space. The quality of education for being a community college exceeded my expectations.
