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: 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.

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.

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.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I Have not taken any online classes, therefore I could not discuss any experience with them.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: With working part time, it can be a hassle to find classes that fit my schedule. I have relied heavily on online courses and for the most part it has worked out okay for me.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Unfortunately, I have not had the best experience with the financial aid office. When I have called, there is no one available every single time and my phone calls do not get returned. When I email them, I get very short replies and it does not feel like they care about me at all. I have had to go through the financial aid application by myself and I am still unsure of whether I have been completing it right.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: When I took a full workload of classes, I certainly had my work cut out for me. I found it was better for me to only go part time taking 3 at the most because any more than that was far too much work. (I also work part time as well). Overall the professors are great. The class registration process I have always done myself online but it is very easy to walk through it. I prefer doing it myself versus with a counselor.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors have been great with making sure I understand the material and answer any questions that I have had.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't have much knowledge of this area to be able to judge it.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses of course are more difficult but overall the professor's have been helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Never had a problem with the technology resources here. There's always a computer available to use and the printing is great too

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I only visit the study rooms and library but they're very nice.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I mostly take online courses, but when I have taken courses at the school, everyone is very helpful. I was lost one day and even had a student show me around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have never had a problem with the school overall.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: When visiting the counselor's for guidance and advice it can be difficult to determine if they're even helping me. I have gone multiple times and felt like nothing was solved. I even ended up doing my own plan and now I schedule my own classes for each semester and do the payment plan myself as well. I really love the tutoring office though, they have always been helpful for whatever I go for.

College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Haven't really dealt with it.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school has it's ups and downs, but so does most any institution. They can't really be built to please everyone 100% of the time. This school has mostly been a local convenience to go to due to where I live and work. So I probably wouldn't have gone anywhere else. The system has it's holes and cracks that are easy to fall through. The registration process is easy, but there is a short time span to do it in as the schedule does not become fully available until it is closer to the time where payment is due and classes start. It makes it a little difficult to plan work and other activities in daily life.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't really explored these centers

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I feel like I am learning and advancing a great deal towards what I'm going for. Everything I am learning is beneficial and on track, the workload is fair and applicable to real world work.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Typically students at this school are friendly and helpful to others, but mostly quiet and on their own kind of people unless approached or spoken to. It seems people come here to learn and further their education around their daily lives. There is a lot of diversity in the student body and high acceptance of all kinds of people.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have only taken a hybrid class and not a fully online course at this time.

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.
