First, I attend The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), Catonsville. My experiences have been favorable the past 20 years. All core classes such as Science, Math, English was great. The professors were experts in the subject matter. Not only experts, but they used repetative techniques to reinforce the information. This is my second time at matriculating at CCBC. The faculty have been extremely supportive and have encouraged me along with other students to establish a Student Association for the Health Informatics and Information Technology Program. I have gained knowledge, as well as leadership skills this time around.

This is a great school for working adults. Very convenient hours and many choices. So many evening classes are offered and the teachers are very knowledgable and accomodating to their students. Love the school.
