Overall I've enjoyed attending BCC. It's only my second semester here and I all of the staff have been more than helpful. The counselors really do try their best to get you on the right path to attain your goals. Also, every professor that I've ever came to about a problem in the class, they are always willing to help and they really do make you feel like they really want you to pass the class.

They have been very understanding that I have Asbergers and there are times that I may need some extra help or assistance especially in English. I am enjoying the classes and the instructors. I am looking for extra financial help, I had to move in with my mother who recently became disabled. She is the type that gave up her dreams, and worked 2 and 3 jobs to care for me and getting everyone cared for. Now after a work injury, that left her unable to return to caring and providing for all as she has always done. Then in Jan. 2012 she was in a car accident that left her more disabled. Now not only her lower back, her neck has protruding, bulging, and broke vertabrea, her lower back now goes from T11 to s2. And her right knee that has been replaced 2 times needs to be replaced or removed. Now they find out she has CHF, 2 valves leaking, and sleep apnea. This is the person that has always cared for me and her parents all her life, and now there is only me for her to depend on. I need extra financial help to care for her and go to school at myself.
