Am learning a lot
I must say that I have learned a lot from BCC, even after being in a Visual Communications class for two years at DCMO BOCES, I am still learning more and more about my major which is basically the same thing.
Am enjoying being here
Everybody at BCC is very nice and the classes are great. It's a really nice school and everything is pretty easy to find.
Bang for the buck
Definitely worth the cost. You wont see another college as cheap as this and the education is very well for the price.
Tips for prospective students
If you live far away try to find somewhere closer. The drive does get very repetitive if you live far away.

Am learning a lot
I am learning so much here at Broome. It is alot different from highschool in the sense that I am focusing my academic skills on things that I desire to know more about, which is something I enjoy and something Broome is accomodating wonderfully. I am especially enjoying my Human Biology class, as the things I am learning in there are all so fasicinating. All of my professors are wonderful teachers, all of them explain things in very understandable terms and have always been patient with me and all my classmates.
Am enjoying being here
Broome is great. It's very convenient for me, and I enjoy spending time on campus. There are plenty of things to do to pass the time inbetween classes and plenty of places to be by myself and study if I need to. The atheletics are all fun to go to watch, and students get in for free which is awesome.
Tips for prospective students
Register for classes early! And believe it or not, 8am classes are not as bad as they sound, dont be afraid to take those. As much of a pain as it may be, try not to overload your schedule with credit hours, and try not to schedule too many classes in one day. Also, if you're going to take Human Bio, get Professor Hollister!

If you're looking for a place to get started on your college education, and would like to do so in a convenient and less expensive way, Broome is a great place to do that! If you are someone who's been out of school for a while and looking to finish up a degree or even begin obtaining one, Broome would be a great place for you as well.

Am learning a lot
There are so many options here. I do not know what I want to do after college and here I am having the opportunity to try different things that I never would have thought of - such as Native American History.
Am enjoying being here
Here there are many things to do that are not directly related to a degree - every Thursday at eleven there are no classes so even if you have no classes with your friends you can still hang out with them or join a club together.
Bang for the buck
I am not sure how well my tuition is spread out but I try hard to get everything I can for my Student Activities fee. It is required, but it contributes to many different activities on campus. I try to attend all of them :)
Tips for prospective students
Talk to an academic adviser. They do what they can to make sure that your academics are all in order and they can recommend teachers that are what you are looking for better that websites like ratemyprofessor.com

In three sentences
BCC is a great school for transferring. It is a small sized quiet community college. It holds a good education and diversity people.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you take your ID pictures early. Also you need to know where your advisor's office is.
Academic Rigor
The education in BCC is pretty solid, you really have to work hard to earn a good grade.
Dorm Life
no dorm
Food and Dining
BCC QUAD has a small dining area for students, there are pizza, subway, and hot foods. There are other choices on upper front street as well.
What to do for fun
There are a lot of sports teams and clubs to join. When spring hits, students play games on the grass.
Bang for the buck
BCC tuition is relatively low, compare to its high quality education, I think it's very worth it.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
In business building, there is a small dining area. During lunch time, there will always be people speaking Spanish gathering around. It could be a good opportunity to learn a new language.
Great for these types of students
BCC is great for people who have kids, there is a day care on campus for students. BCC is great for transferring students especially to SUNY schools. BCC is great for people who have financial difficulties due to its low tuition.
Clubs and Activities
There are lots of clubs and activities on campus. I am currently in the BCC tutor program, helping students with their homework and preparing for exams. There are also Business Club, International Student Organization, lingoNet club, and so on.
Greek Life
I'm not familiar with Greek Life because I'm not part of them.
Campus Safety
I've been in BCC for almost 2 years, I have never heard of any violence case occurred. I have also taken late classes which ended at 9, walking on campus by myself was not a problem.

broome is a great low-cost institution for students to explore their interests and prepare for their careers. i have been to a four-year institution on scholarship and i can say that broome's quality of education is comparable at a much cheaper cost!
Tips for prospective students
at a community college there is no pressure to maintain gpa for scholarships. you can study what you want without as much financial pressure. it has a great atmosphere to find what you want to do for your career.
Academic Rigor
it is easy for people want it to be and challenging for those who want it to be.
Dorm Life
there are no dorms since it is a community college but the city of binghamton offers very cheap housing and apartments.
Food and Dining
the cafeteria is a great hang-out place and there is a lot to eat including binghamton's nirchi's pizza!
What to do for fun
there are tons of extra-curricular activities and clubs, and broome has very successful athletics. in recent years, several athletes and teams have been champions or recognized as all-americans.
Bang for the buck
the tuition is around $2,000/ semester, and the education is just as good as any four-year school!!!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
there are several restaurants nearby like subway, coldstone, and regal cinemas is right across the street!
Great for these types of students
students who want to save, students who are unsure about majors, careers or a college to attend.
Clubs and Activities
business club, honor society, chess club, theater, athletics like lacrosse, baseball, soccer, hockey, and ton of more clubs
Greek Life
none
