Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, Gavilan is a great place to get ready to transfer to a four year university. Although many students don't take it seriously because it is a community college, it allows students to explore different courses and truly find something that will interest them. It's a great jumping off point to discover something students really enjoy and could see themselves doing later in life as a career. They provide excellent tutoring and transfer programs and even have representatives from all over California come and talk to students about the schools. The key to success at Gavilan is to stay focused and on track. If there is no motivation students will not perform at their full potential and will take years to transfer. Speaking with a counselor and knowing the educational plan is a vital factor in the success of a student. However, the most important thing for a Gavilan student is to have the drive and ability to want a better education so they can better their lives. Motivation, patience and hard work are the keys to academic success.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classes fill up quickly and it can frustrating

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: College is very different from schooling prior to this level and obviously it has taken time to adjust, in fact I feel I am still adjusting to this new environment. The people like-minded to myself I like to think as opposed to high school. I have met great educators here, its decent here

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have great facilities including a tutoring center, a library, a student center and students always take advantage of what the school has to offer.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Great tools on campus at our disposal

3 College Junior

Facilities: Campus life I would say is very lax. When students are not in class, they do spend their free time in the students center. But other than that, everyone is fairly busy and doing their own thing
