In three sentences
brookdale community college offers various educational opportunities for students less financially capable than others. however, the guidance office can be very unstable when it comes to integrity. on the other hand, most staff members and professors exceed normal expectations by applying actual useful information into the class.
Tips for prospective students
if you can, go to a 4 year university. but there is nothing shameful in going to a community college (brookdale) that is ranked as one of the best community colleges.
Academic Rigor
the school is equipped with many different facilities that cater to a student's needs. there are laboratories with students, volunteers, and professors willing to invest their time and knowledge in assisting current students. there is no charge and a
Dorm Life
there are no dorms available. a rumor exists that there will be dorms within a few years.
Food and Dining
cafeteria and student life cafe offer various meal options in accordance to the time of day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
What to do for fun
rock clim, reading, and writing.
Bang for the buck
it is wiser to invest in brookdale; it offers equivalent academic standards to those of actual universities.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
brookdale offers even more flexibility to its students by providing online courses and different locations. for example, there is a freehold brookdale campus which is closer to me and i can still take a few classes in that location.
Great for these types of students
those financially unstable, any age-group, etc. there are no prejudices here.
Clubs and Activities
brookdale offers an incredible range for clubs and activities. even if one activity does not exists, the student has the power to create their own.
Campus Safety
there are telephone polls all over the campus specifically linked to the campus police station. cop cars are always visible and in range.

Am learning a lot
You get what you put into it.
Am enjoying being here
I can't complain.
Tips for prospective students
Remember this: work hard, sleep healthily and eat regularly. You'll be set.
Great for these types of students
If you like free dinner, laundry and a roof over your head this is the perfect school for you. You get to live in the comforts of your own home while still feeling like you're away at your own campus during the day.

This school is the best community college you could probably go to. All the teachers are extremely dedicated and I haven't had one that wasn't willing to help you when you needed help.
Am enjoying being here
It's close to home and much easier than being in a dorm room, possibly stuck with a roommate that you don't get along with. Everyone is nice and you'll always see your friends around campus.
Bang for the buck
Absolutely the best bang for your buck. I went to a four year college before Brookdale and it was a huge mistake. It was over $25,000 for the year. Brookdale is incredibly priced and you get amazing teachers that you probably wouldn't expect to find at a community college.
Tips for prospective students
Register for classes on your priority registration date... You'll get all the classes you want before most people have the chance to register. Also, check out your professors on Rate My Professor.
Great for these types of students
People that want to stay close to home and that don't want to or can't afford to spend $20,000+ a year for a great education.

Am learning a lot
The teachers here are truly committed to their professions and their passions for their fields show. Every professor I've had has been easily accessible through emails or in-office hours and is dedicated to making sure that his or her students aptly understands the materials.
Am enjoying being here
The college has multiple convenient campuses, the main one being in Lincroft. It's minutes away from the Garden State Parkway, Route 35, and towns such as Red Bank and Eatontown. There's always some organization hosting an event on campus, whether it's Laugh at Lunch or the Visiting Writer's Series. The library, bookstore, cafeteria, and convenience store on campus also help supply needed materials, as well as pass the time between classes.
Bang for the buck
A 12 credit semester will cost you about $2,000-$2,500, not including books and materials. If you're under the NJ Stars program, however, tuition is obviously covered. Brookdale is very giving with it's financial aid, though, and you may even find yourself essentially getting paid to attend college.
Tips for prospective students
Check your financial aid possibilities. Buy your books on Amazon.com or somewhere similar (the bookstore's pricey). Reach out to your professors. No, it's not an Ivy League, but you'll get a great education here if you're open to it.
Great for these types of students
Brookdale is great for students who don't want to leave home yet, who are intimidated by overly expensive universities, night-time students, returning students, or students like me who hadn't yet decided on a university or major but still want to get required courses out of the way (and inexpensively).

Am learning a lot
I have learned so much here at Brookdale!For the first time in my life I have recieved all straight A's because the teachers teach very well and the classes are easy.Thats what I love about college!You can pick your own classes.Their are many majors offered at Brookdale also.
Am enjoying being here
I do enjoy being here because I get to be close to home and I have a lot of fun at the college.there are a lot of things you can do to get involved and everyone is very nice and respectful.
Bang for the buck
I haven't paid a cent..even for books.Financial aid has granted me all this award money and I also get a fat check of the money left over that I dont use ;)
Tips for prospective students
Take the school seriously..it is what you make of it.Just because you arent going away to school doesnt mean that you are dumb and you are a reject and cant make a living for yourself.Community colleges are so great and this school teaches a lot!
Great for these types of students
For students who want to be close to home or who are not sure what to do and what their major should be then this is the school for you.Also, this is a great start!Going to a community college first is the smartest choice because you save tons of money and you can get all your credits...graduate with an associates degree then transfer.Transfer students are more likely to get into the school of their choice than if you are just graduating high school wanting to go to this school.

Did learn a lot
You get what you put in. Almost every teacher is willing to take you to the next level if you're ambitious enough.
Did enjoy being here
Cool teachers even cooler friends, not dorm life though.
Bang for the buck
If there were 6 stars for this, it would earn that mark. This is my recommended way to save money on your college voyage.
Tips for prospective students
Go into college and figure out what you want to do. Find something you enjoy studying and use the resources that you're paying for. You can make yourself a much more valuable person in the process.
Great for these types of students
Students with lower incomes or no scholarships. Students in the STAR program or students that didn't get great marks in high school but want to turn that around in college. Good Luck!
