    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.

    Sure its not the ideal college but it is very affordable. So far the three teachers I have had have been very nice and helpful. However, there really isn't a social atmosphere.

    With their desire to accommodate student body needs, Bakersfield College surrounds its students with a positive environment for both educating and ensuring a quality experience through professors and making everlasting friendships.

    I find that Bakersfield College excels in the academic support it provides to it's students, and has a wide variety of degrees and training programs. There are an abundance of clubs on campus, and athletics with titles and championships. Lastly, there is a large student body with a variety of cultures, beliefs, and there has never been a problem within the student body.
