Bronx Community College is a great option for a two year college, wide variety of mayors, mix ethnicity and very flexible hours schedule.
Rosa from Bronx, NY
Bronx community college is a great school to come get an education in a hurry. The people are friendly and very helpful. The professors are also very helpful and understand that students have lives outside of college.

The college has new buildings that look so beautiful and easy to navigate to. Most of all they have technology usage whenever you need it.
