5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is unique because of it's small classes and because the teachers care about the student. I love the small town feel and love how nice everybody is.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses to me are harder. They are harder because I am a visual learner and hands on learner. I just simply like traditional classes. The work load, in amount, seems to be the same. Just harder to grasp. I need tutoring for online classes.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse. We have male, female, whites, Hispanics, African Americans, Indian, Chinese, and Middle east ethnic groups. We all get along very good.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Job prospects are very good after graduating from FGC. Many former nursing students tell me they have found work within 3 to 6 months or less time. We do not get alot of alumni members coming back to teach because its a small town and alot of people move to bigger cities.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: For the money this school is awesome! Financial aid is very friendly but scholarships are limited due to it being a small town. Loans or grants I do not know about because I have never applied for. Lauren Pope in financial aid is super duper good at helping you find money for school. I am definitely getting my moneys worth at FGC.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Very good at flexibility of classes and scheduling. You can take night, day, and summer classes. Most classes are every other day for example, Monday/Wednesday. You most always unless you have a lab have Fridays off! The guidance department is very help at explaining things. Mrs. Linda Williams was the best guidance councilor ever!!!! Switching my major was as easy as filling a form out.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class size is small, max 30 people. The teachers are very nice and want you to succeed. Just about everyone of my former professors knows my name when I pass them in the halls. (That's how friendly they are!) There are a variety of courses you can take at FGC. For example you can take early childhood classes, law enforcement, golf course management, agricultural, nursing, physical therapy assistant, cosmetology and the arts classes and many more!

Overall Experience: Being in the nursing program I have talked to a lot of nursing graduates who have said that finding a job was not hard for them because of the school they graduated from. (FGC) The former students say the road was hard getting to graduation but that this hard work paid off when it came to take their license exam because of the fact of them being pushed so hard in the classroom. In the nursing program you have to make a 75% or better to pass a test and if your semester average is less than 75% you are removed from the program. Very difficult to stay above a 75% average but it pays off in the end.

Academic Experience: I am in the ASDN Nursing program and our work load is tough! Our facilities are super clean, new, and full of technology. We do not have internships but what we do have is clinical rotations. These rotations are at some of the best hospitals in Florida. The VA Hospital and Shands Hospital are a couple. Our program is hands on and incorporates visual, written, hearing learning aspects. I do wish we had more access to our Administrators of the nursing program though. We hardly see our coordinator. It would just be nice to see her come around to the classrooms and make her self more available. Overall, its a good program, tough, but good!

Academic Experience: Our professors are awesome! they care about you and the class sizes allow for more one on one time. My biggest class has been maybe 30! Registration is done online or with a councilor. (Very easy process) The curriculum is good too. We study what we need to know and it's not just busy work because we do use what we learn in everyday life. Tutors are available for almost every subject. The tutors are students like our selves and are very good at putting things in a college students perspective. you also have the option of having online tutors for online courses.

Campus Resources: Have access to a new Library with rooms you can reserve for free to study in. Technology is big at my school and the learning lab has fast, good internet. There is also free wifi on campus. There is a weight room several clubs like phi pheta kappa and band. Very nice staff.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Still pretty new to the program.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I wish there were more classes offered on campus rather than online.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Impressed with the student activities.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think they should take more time to speak with people who may be at risk of losing their financial aid and work with them to make sure they understand where they stand, why and what they can do about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: the online coures are very much supportive and helpful.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would choose my school again if I could do it all over because it's opened my eyes to how college can be. It's been very helpful in the things that I need. The professors look at you as an individual not just another student. I like that our class sizes are big so that we can communicate better.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The athletic center is small and have weights that people can use. The student center is nice, I only been in there a few times. The library is big and spacious. We have a cafe and nice study area. They have small classrooms that can also help with studying in groups. The campus activities are great they have events at least two times a month. They give out different things and have drawing to win a basket. The general campus aesthetics is great and very environmental.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The worth of my tuition that I paid is very much worth it. The financial aid office was very helpful. The have answered every question for me. The tips for getting financial aid at my school is apply at FASFA and talk to them. They can be very helpful to people that are applying for financial aid.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Typical students at my school are high school students, recent high school graduates, one or more year students, and students that came back after five years or more from school.The student body is very diverse. I feel that people are pretty acceptable in regards to diversity.

3 College Senior

Career Services: There aren't really any post-grad services for what I want to do. The one service that I want to do is a little hard to get into so I want to go to a University.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: My experience with online courses was it was easier. The class were a little more flexible than traditional classes. My last class was online and the interaction I had with my professor was good. She gave us all feedback for our work. The interaction with my peers was good because we had to communicate. We had to respond to each other and that was a great way toto communicate about different views.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I haven't had to transfer my credits yet. The college has made everything easy because they helped me understand everything I needed to know.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm excited to start my new program in Business Management. I don't know what the workload is right now. I feel that taking these course will help me in job opportunities.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are great because you don't feel like your just a student. They are really there to help and give their contact so that we can get a hold of them. The class registration process is so easy that I've only seen an adviser a few times. There workload is fair being in college.
