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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

1 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I haven't personally had any issues with the financial aid here but I had a friend who got screwed over by the financial aid here and they made her pay it all back or they wouldn't allow her to take classes here anymore. I understand there's issues within departments, but it was their mistake and they refused to make up for anything.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: This location of the college isn't the greatest. The people are semi-friendly but it's hard to make friends. There isn't a variety of religion or ethnicity; it's very bland.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I've only taken one class online and it was Spanish. The instructor would email us regularly to remind us of assignments and upcoming tests. The only real problems i have with online is when I had a question that needed to be answered right away it was hard because i would have to send her an email and wait for a response so doing an assignment would take a lot longer because I would have to sit and wait. Also the teacher is not there to explain the assignments and how they need to be done so some were very confusing and hard to understand.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: We have no sports teams or athletic centers, we do have a student center as mentioned above it offers computers to do homework or check grades and print we are allowed to print for free as long as we are moderate with what we print and it has to be for school. And also as mentioned earlier we have no library.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: We have two computer labs, one is full of computers just rows and rows students can go in and type essays or check grades. Our other lab is more of a student center it has computers but not as many and it has a few desks with people who will tutor for any subject you are struggling in.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition price is very reasonable compared to other schools and universities that charge an arm and a leg to take one class. Most of the classes I've taken are worth the money I've learned a lot that I know will help me further my career.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: Where my school is located it is very tiny so no housing is offered. If you live out of town but want to attend GBC then you either need to find your own place to live or commute. i had two girls in one of my classes and they traveled every single day just to come to school. We have no library. A very tiny student center to get help. Parking is scarce especially since GBC is located right across from the high school so they are always taking our parking as well. And there is NO sports team making GBC a place just for academics, no fun.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The staff in the main office are great they are always available to help you if you have any questions regarding credits, transcripts or classes or basically anything you need. If you really want to take certain classes they will try to make a schedule that works best for everyone even if it means taking classes online. Most of the teachers are awesome they really care about the students and want to make sure they are learning the material except one teacher. She was awful she always gave students the same score on everything and the score was always average making it nearly impossible to pass her class with an A.
