I always thought community college was for students who didn't do good in school. But the truth is its for everybody. Its a sacrifice and a good choice. My tuition in total for 12 credits is less than my friends dorm expenses in a four year college. The classes are not packed, the teachers are very helpful, and you also get to know them. GPC overall is a great school. And being Merged by GSU makes it a better school

With all the difficult challenges life posed to me in my second home Ghana, I have matured physically and mentally. Now I am in Georgia Perimeter College ready to tackle my next hurdle of education that will make me whole. Currently, I am getting close to my sophomore year in the college and I have really learned a lot from this prestigious community college. I have made a lot of friends, met new people and experiencing a good college life. The college has a good location, great teachers who are willing to help you in every aspects of education and it also has good associations to join. I am currently in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement Program (MESA) and the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Scholars Program (PSLSAMP). I would wish to use every opportunity I have to gain an associate's degree in my computer science major and to help transfer to a four-year university to obtain a bachelor's degree in computer science. This is the beginning of my journey towards success.

The classrooms are not filled to the max and the teachers are able to have one on one conversations with students. The teachers understand that you have a life outside of the classroom and they respect that, not that they let you slack off but that they understand that life does happen. Out of two semester I only have a few complaints. One would be that when I would call the school and need to speak with someone I would be on hold for around 30 minutes at a time, but if I were to go to the school, the phones would not be ringing, they were not busy with other students, and I would have to wait awhile for help even if I am the only one in the office at the time. Another complaint would be the Department Directors would not communicate well with the Advisors and my schedule along with a few more classmates were messed up and we had to rearrange our schedule to be able to fit into the class they have available, when it was their mistake to begin with.
