Overall Rating

What I love the most about CBC is that they accept a wide variety of students, young and old. They don't judge you and every one meshes well for the most part. Everyone is their for a reason to pursue a higher level of Education. The study groups are great, the professors work with you as long and you work with them and communicate. Many of the students have children and they have a daycare on campus. It is such an inviting environment and is not overwhelming. I cannot wait to continue my education at CBC.
