I would have to say that when I first started Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC), I didn't know what to expect. I was indeed nervous as there was a much larger body of students than what I was accustomed to. However, I must say that I am currently enjoying my time at BRCC in my second semester. My major, Entertainment Technology, is one that is not offered pretty much in to many places in the state so this was a great advantage to me to pursue. Another thing I must say the school excels at is job resources and events for the student body. Nearly every week the school has some event that brings the faculty and staff together. They have frequent job fairs and even guest speakers which show that the school definitely is a pusher of career development.
