The three reasons in which someone should attend Bergen Community College is their reputation for academic excellence, commitment to developing the whole student, and phenomenal job placement record. Bergen Community College is the leading community college in the nation. They have accomplished this by developing what they call the student success initiative. These initiatives provide a rigorous and inclusive learning environment that cultivates the students success and assures quality of learning. In addition to this the school's student life and activity department demands that the students joint or even develop clubs, take part in school activities, and get involved with other students to ensure that when you leave you are a well rounded individual. Last but not least, this schools counselors take the time to prepare each student for the next step in their college journey to four year institutions of learning. Also, for those not interested in furthering their college education the career placement department works tirelessly to make sure that students qualifications, resume's and interviewing skills are up to par upon graduation.
