CBC is a fine school. I am An nontraditional student and they go out of there way to make sure I'm successful.
Walter from Greenbrier, AR
Central Baptist College is a great college to go to if you want to have one on one time with the teacher and don't want big classrooms. The teachers are Christians and show that through their teaching. There's a lot of people who attend but in my opinion, not to overwhelming.
Kate
