Gavilan College is the closest community college from where I lived. It's been a great experience attending Gavilan College especially because of the student supplemental programs like MESA and Trio. These programs optimized my experience as a college student. The programs allowed separate counselors only for the program and that has been beneficial to students like me as the counselors are able to touch base with you more closely. The MESA program especially ensures that you are taking the right classes and path to the degree you want to achieve. They are very supportive and encouraging with every aspect you allow - be it academic, personal, and professional. For the prospective and current students, I highly recommend looking into these supplemental programs as they will work with you so that you may achieve success in your future. There are plenty of other programs such as EOPS, Disability Resource Center, Veterans Resource Center, and etc.

I am getting my general Ed done here at Gavilan college, and most students here are too. It's difficult to get into popular classes, such as Statistics, Biology, and English. These are the main core courses students need in order to complete their Ed plan, so these are usually always full. I think because professors know this, they are willing to be flexible to help us with anything. My past and current instructors really love to help their students succeed, so they do take the extra mile to show us useful websites or videos and any events we could attend outside of school. Each class is different on work load, but usually the classes with labs tend to be more critical, because you're doing extra work.

For a regular student, it might be difficult to register into high demand classes such as biology, chemistry, and etc. However, taking advantage of the programs like MESA and Trio, as I have, helped with getting into this classes as they offered pre-priority registration which allowed MESA and Trio students to enroll a day before continuing students and new students. It's always a good habit to find out the class style and lecture style of all the professors you are looking into taking a class with.
