1 College Sophomore

Career Services: I do not believe I get anything from my school's "career center" . I simply must take my state licensing exam and attempt to get a job

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Pahrump campus is a rented building owned by the high school. It used to be a community college. It is ugly and outdated, and does not feel like a college.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost of Great Basin is inexpensive, but I am relying on financial aid and the financial aid office has not been very helpful when I asked about trying to find scholarships for a post-bachelors program.

1 College Sophomore

Student Body: The demographic of students consist of what would be expected at a community college.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Courses in the EDU program must be taken in sequence. In Pahrump, there are zero classes offered during the summer.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are rarely any actual professors in class with us. Most of the classes "on campus" have a remote instructure from Elko.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I never use computers on campus for anything. I always use my own computer for anything having to do with my college experience.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: All of my online instructors have been very professional and communicate with students in a timely manner.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this college and I am proud to say that Great Basin is my college. The Professors are great and explain everything thoroughly. For instance, I tried going back to college once and I did not do to well at the community college of Las Vegas. I guess they were not used to older students and I had no idea how they wanted one to write an essay. Furthermore, once I started at Great Basin I was automatically informed on how to write an Essay and even provided me with the OWL site, which shows all the formatting and citations.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The college has plenty of ways to help for paying for college, such as, the pell grant, scholarships, grants, and school loans. Furthermore, spring 2014 my husband got laid off, however, he had made too much the year before to qualify for the pell grant. Therefore, I went and talked to the financial aid office and they helped me out with the need grant.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The college has plenty of flexibility. Furthermore, one can take three credits up to 18 credits. The professors give one plenty of time to finish their work and turn it in on time. One can take classes at the school or online. The college also provides study areas and tutors.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is definitely a lot of diversity at the college. For instance, I am 30 and a mother and decided to go to college. Furthermore, it is really common for someone my age or even students, whom are older than me to go to school here. Their are a lot of moms, whom go to college here too. Furthermore, the college has a program for high school students. Therefore, we also have high school students going to college too. There have been a couple of high school students, whom obtained a general associates degree by the time they graduated high school. These particular high school students get classes at a highly discounted rate.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The college has a great arts program. Furthermore, they have their own arts magazine called the "GBC Argentum", which students can send in art for a competition. Several students can win, and their art is published in the magazine and is in the student art show.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: This college is part of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, which provides access to lots of stuff during school and when one graduates. Such as, recommendation letters, honors on ones official transcript showing that one kept their grades up, scholarships, and career help after one graduates.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I definitely prefer the online classes. Furthermore, being that it is definitely more convenient for the highly motivated individual. There are still due dates when work is to be turned in, most professors do not accept late work, and there are discussion boards to discuss class materials with your peers and the professors. However, I would not recommend an online class for a student, whom is not highly motivated, because even though there are deadlines one can go on and do work whenever. For instance, one can even turn work in at 2:00 in the morning if one felt like it. Therefore, one has to make up their own schedule and decide on how much work needs to be done each day to have it turned in on time, unlike a regular class where one does most their work in the classroom.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a Graphic Communications major. I was actually going into Radiology Technology, however, when I took the Introductory class for that field I found what I really wanted to do. Furthermore, the assignment was to make a flyer of a Radiology machine, such as, the MRI, X-Ray, or an Ultrasound. I really enjoyed the project and decided to look into other majors. I found Computer Technologies with an Emphasis in Graphic Communications, and the best part is the college just got approved for a Bachelors in Graphic Communications. I am super excited.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I like the Professors a lot, they are super helpful. I take mostly online classes due to having a family. Furthermore, the best part about this specific college is because of the online classes and video linkups people in smaller towns of Nevada can have the option of going to college. There is also the options of scholarships. Great Basin makes it really simple, one form and personal statement, and it applies for all of the Scholarships.

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: This branch of the college is lacking in all of these areas..

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's average here; nothing too social or involved. It's just independent here.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are literally no resources here.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: All of the technology is pretty fast and reliable.

Academic Experience: There's nothing unique about my major here at GBC.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The registration process is some what messy, and careless. The professors are careless as well.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Depending on the class, I feel the teacher cares more then the teachers that I see everyday.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The school has been pretty good with me; I haven't had any major issues that are worth complaining about.
