Overall, Brookdale is a good starting point to further your education if, like I was, you aren't sure what direction you'd like to go in. It's not too far from home, and the campus is easy to navigate. I feel very comfortable when I'm in class or studying in the library. It's also nice to see some familiar faces now and then. The students are generally nice, as are most of the teachers.

At the start I was impressed with my area community college, it already having outstanding academic credentials in our state/country. The fact that it was readily accessible, conveniently located and affordable priced made it my number one choice.
