Overall Experience: I plan on earning a certification for Practical Nursing, which should get me a job almost immediately out of college. I plan on working as a nurse to support myself as I complete pre-med prerequisites at a local university.

Academic Flexibility: I have never encountered a problem that was not easily solved with enrolling in classes. The student advisors were very knowledgeable if I ever encountered any snags in the enrollment process.

Blackboard is also very easy to navigate.

Student Body: There are a lot of adult students and adults with special needs, so the student body is incredibly varied when compared to the average university. Students within the age range of 18-21 are typically seen playing card or video games. Learning how to play games such as Magic! the Gathering and League of Legends is a great way to meet new people around here.

5 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: They have a workforce program that is specifically tailored to provide certifications for jobs that are in demand in the area. Frankly, I cannot think of a better post-grad program and am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this school.

Student Body: The students that attend Germanna are a bit on the partying side.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I greatly enjoyed taking the online courses available at Germanna.

Facilities: They could improve on the library and student center. It's very crowded on the Fredericksburg campus.

Career Services: Germanna is a wonderful school, however, they could improve in their hiring process. I have found that some of their teachers are not very impressive and teach me very little.

College Junior

Online Courses: I don't really take online courses so I have no idea, the friends I have who have here said they are good.

College Junior

Career Services: It's a community college so I don't think that's really the focus here.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The school is pretty good about dealing with problems of flexability.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: At this college, I feel like you go to school, get an average workload, and then go home to do it. There is no special aspects or uniqueness. They do however have faculty that help guide transfer students into the classes they need to transfer.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: While there are a wide variety of classes offered, my college is a little short staffed, the curriculum is fast-paced, in a good way, and workload isn't too heavy for most classes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Great bookstore that always has information on what books are needed and materials for classes. Always advertising for student activities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Has a strong internet connection, which is easily accessible from other computers and has many computers available for students who need them. However they are starting to charge for printing which makes it harder to get hard copies of notes and work sheets.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Germanna isn’t really a school that students dream of attending—sports are unimportant, family legacies are irrelevant, and rigorous academics are lacking. Still, students say that for what it is—a community college that allows students to complete associate’s degrees, earn career certificates, and transfer to four-year universities—Germanna is an impressive institution. Students come from around the globe, and each has a different reason for choosing to study at Germanna. Some attend because they cannot afford the tuition at private schools, others because they want to complete general education requirements before transferring to a four-year university without as much debt, and some come to get an associate’s degree or career certificate, so they can prepare to enter the workforce and earn higher salaries. Other reasons students come to Germanna is because they weren’t accepted to any four-year universities, they have health concerns that prevent them from moving from home, they did poorly in high school and want to prove to four-year schools that they have become serious about their studies, or they are learning English and want to study in a safe and friendly environment before they enter the workforce.

While many Germanna’s students groan about still living at home and frequently joke about being in “13th grade” and having to deal with drama typically associated with middle and high school, overall, they say they are happy to be at Germanna. The faculty, administration, and staff constantly make studying here a pleasant experience because they are warm, friendly, engaging, and fun, and they always have time to speak with students. Most of the students are also friendly and pleasant, and they appreciate and take advantage of all that Germanna offers them. Okay, so not one Germanna graduate has become president of the United States, won a Nobel Peace Prize, or anything of the sort, but nearly every Fredericksburg resident has some connection to Germanna. Nearly every student here will say that studying at Germanna has been a rewarding and life-changing experience.
