4 College Junior

Facilities: I think my school has a lot of cohesiveness, unlike other community colleges. It truly feels like one united student body.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I met many new people here, and I really glad I chose this school. It has a nice campus and the professors here are dedicated. The campus is pretty big too but I slowly adjusted to it. I enjoy the programs they offer in this school.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It depends on the major and professor you select that make the tuition worth while. The financial aid office is a bit of a mess because long lines and sometimes take a while to process paper work. Its understandable because of the many students submitting student aid. There are also scholarships offered in this school.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The art major have their own building toward the subject and studios. There are supplies here in art class rooms. There are several great programs for majors such as computer graphics. The professor here are really dedicated toward their subjects.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academics offered here are wide range from art programs to aviation programs. There are great subjects dedicated toward a specific major. The study abroad program is best because they go to neat locations such as Greece and Japan this summer.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The unique thing about this school is the campus scenery which is surrounded by green hills and architecture is beyond average. Some of the professor here are dedicated toward their subjects. There are many events that occur here along with study abroad programs such as Japan for the summer. I hope I can attend.

College Junior

Career Services: I haven't reached into this level yet, but I plan to investigate when the time comes for me to transfer. I still plan to take some classes here for my major.

College Junior

Student Body: I don't really know the student body in campus but they do make interactive activities sometimes. There is a diversity of gender and ethnic.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: the flexibility of my classes are great because I have some time to take a break or catch up on some work. I only had frustration on transferring some transcripts to my current school.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The student center is easy to find and the staff is really helpful. The library is pretty big with many resources such as books and computers. The campus is really beautiful with animal life such a rabbits and lizards that scurry around. There are many activities that are held here that really bring the school spirit.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network can get really bad sometimes. Its not the strongest. The printing in campus is pretty simple but can get chaotic during lunch hour. Its hard to get a personal computer sometimes, but the school does provide laptops.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is just that- Ok. Some teachers really connected with me and others just made life miserable. The admin made me want to tear my hair out. I don't know how other schools in the area would be, but the only reason I came to GCC is because I had friends here who made the experience livable. Otherwise, I'd attend a different school.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is terrible. They've made multiple mistakes that took me forever to correct. We need more- and better qualified- workers. Otherwise, I feel I am getting my monies worth in education.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Though there are lots of available hours, bad registration process makes it hard to take advantage of these classes. Getting anything done- paperwork wise- is a hassle.. and then some! It is next to impossible to meet with a counselor and get everything done, specially at the financial aid office.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Campus activities are limited though the campus is really pretty. There is one gym with decent equipment. There are a few fields including football, baseball and a tennis/basketball court. The student center is a ghost town on any day except finals/transfers/first days. The library is usually packed and offers few comfortable seats. The computers are always occupied when you need them most- between classes. And parking at my school is HORRIBLE, especially the first month of school. People drive terribly, there's always a damaged car from a hit-and-run and you usually have to circle the lot 5-10 minutes before finding a spot.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is no wi-fi/service in certain classrooms/buildings. The network logs you out often. Computer labs are open and available most of the time. Printing is accessible but costs a few cents/page. Internet speed is acceptable.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is beautiful- one of the best community colleges I've seen. Its facilities are largely clean and new. There is a lot of greenery but not much study space besides the grass and a packed library. There is not much of a social scene.

Academic programs need some revamping. There is much done for those seeking careers through Associate's programs but other academic programs and transfer center counselors seem to give poor advice. With that said, I have only been to the counselors a few times because I find I can trust my own judgement and research skills more.

3 College Senior

Career Services: The career center has a few computer survey programs that suggest a suitable career based on your input, but other than that there are no real resources. There is virtually no alumni network. Understandably, job prospects are low. They may be better for those seeking an Associate's Degree, though (which I would know nothing of).

College Senior

Academic Experience: As a community college sophmore, I am fulfilling General Education requirements.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: While the professors are principally friendly and helpful, I've had the bad luck of taking some of the hardest and worst-rated professors at my school because of the registration process. Until recently, those who had been at the college longest got priority registration, and this included people who had been here for 3-7 years with over a hundred units. Meanwhile, freshman year became a nightmare as most incoming students registered for whatever crumbs remained at the bottom of the cookie jar. Moreover, some teachers give a strict curriculum while others provide no structure to their courses.

Naturally, the workload depends on the class and the professor. I've only had personal experience with the Scholars Program, which is seriously lacking. I was unable to join the program for two semesters in a row because of inadequacies on the part of the administrator; She failed to provide the essay prompt and was MIA for over a month without a single response to calls/emails. No one in the program was able to find her or contact her, and the only advice/instruction I was given by the "President" turned out to be the wrong instruction. I can't speak on behalf of other programs.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body, albeit more diverse than most community colleges, is predominately Armenian. Student's keep their sexual lives to themselves (mostly) and don't really air their dirty laundry.

Economically, most students get some sort of financial aid. The majority is ignorant about politics, and those who claim membership to a political party understand only the social aspect (liberal or conservative on issues like gay rights, abortion, gun control, immigration, etc. Religious preference is broad and varied but the student body is generally Christian (as most Armenians are).

I am of Armenian descent, and while I find a lot of acceptance for Armenians and from Armenians, there are always bad apples who spoil the bunch. Otherwise there is no real discrimination or challenges to diversity.

3 College Senior

Facilities: There truly isn't anything unique about GCC. It's what you would expect from a community college. A very blue collar crowd.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: It's what you would expect. Very impersonal. "Just let me do my work, and give me my grade". At GCC you typically take online courses when you have no other options that fit with you schedule.

1 College Senior

Student Body: The only time I heard of the student body doing anything was when I was bombarded with handouts on election day. They don't do anything.
