What Students Are Saying

2.89 Average Rating
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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

STUDY HARD AND YOU CAN ATTAIN ANY GOAL YOU SET YOUR MIND TOWARDS, I WAS ACCEPTED TO 15 PHARMACY SCHOOLS FOR THEIR PHARM D PROGRAM AFTER FINISHING AT BROWARD.

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.
Jose from Pembroke Pines, FL
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!!!!
