Rohan McMillanBergen Community College student Rohan McMillan is studying religion to pursue a career in anthropology and dreams of becoming an author one day. As an active student on campus, McMillan is vice president of the Bergen Pride club, publicist of the fashion club, secretary of philosophy club, and volunteers for LGBTQ and environmental issues. “I have met many amazing people on campus who have continued to help me and give me opportunities,” said McMillan.

As a Rainbow Café volunteer and a Bergen County LGBTQ and Alliance advisor and volunteer, McMillan’s success at Bergen is attributed to “involvement with the community- the community itself.”

“I wanted to figure out my life step by step, taking it slow as I overcame my anxiety, learn basic skills, figure out my career, and have somewhere close to home,” said McMillan about choosing Bergen.

Based in Paramus, Bergen Community College (, a public two-year coeducational college, enrolls more than 13,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst. The College offers associate degree, certificate and continuing education programs in a variety of fields. More students graduate from Bergen than any other community college in the state.
