3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body at GPC is very diverse, but most do tend to have to work as well as go to school

3 College Junior

Student Body: Student diversity is huge at my school, however everyone seems to just stay with their friends. No one really tries to reach out to one another.

4 College Student

Student Body: The student body at my school is very diverse, some students are nice and do help others but others do not speak or seem to interact with others nicely. If you haven't made friends at the school, people will not come speak to you.

5 College Junior

Student Body: It is an open minded body of students coming from various walks of life, countries, and cultures.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: It is hard for me in the classrooms. In my current lab the students are always talking over the teacher, complaining, and can be rude. I do not want to judge the entire school based on a few students. I also do not fit in all that well. There is not much diversity in the classroom.
