3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very small school with not a whole lot of interesting things going on, but overall a good starting point for college.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Georgia Perimeter College provides teachers and tools for students to succeed on graduating or transferring schools, to achieve their dreams. When I first started out here at Georgia Perimeter College, I had a lot of obstacles that came up in my personal life both in and out of my household. Due to that I became very withdrawn to everything in my life, including school. I realize now that my school had everything I needed to succeed despite myself being stripped of money and transportation. Georgia Perimeter College is a great school and I am proud to be a student attending it and soon to be transferring from it.

Overall Experience: Its an ok school so far considering school hasn't started yet. But everything from the campus to the teachers are good.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Teachers rend helpful hands to students and they make sure everyone is on track for graduation.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The registration process is simple and stress-free because the classes offered are flexible for availability.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience was OK because it was difficult to meet or talk to an advisor. There were not enough advisors to value a student's time. You had to wait for more than an hour to talk to the Financial Aide and advisement areas. Buying books was horrible because there was like a gang of people in line to get books and then chaos when you reached the counter.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far going to GPC has been great ! Awesome environment with affordable tuition.. You just cant beat that.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was a great school. Of course you are going to have your problems, but it is nothing a little patience won’t handle. I loved the fact that I was able to get my Associates pretty much 100% online. I think I took two classes on campus my whole 3 years there. The teachers were nice and very lenient. I would say that you have to be dedicated to do the online degree. It does pay off in the end and I was very happy with my choice of school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far has been great. The staff was very helpful. I gain the most knowledge from the advising and counseling office. Mrs. Jani was so patient and sensitive to my needs as related to registering for my classes.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a good school with low tuition cost, the only problem is that the tuition for DACA students is out of state which is 3 times more then regular tuition so I have to take many online classes to lower cost.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere is wonderful at the G.P.C. Clarkston campus. I've really enjoyed the learning experience thus far and the professors that I've had make learning at G.P.C. that much better.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is ok when it comes to it's teachers and classes. The affordability is what makes it great!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school took money from me becuase of financial aid and the fact they drop me from one of my classes now it's hard to afford to stay in school

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a small campus, so you will not get terribly lost. Many of the teachers are willing to help you. Class sizes are about the same as public high school classes...which is great! There are events to get involved in at the school, but you can choose how much you would like to be involved.

Academic Flexibility: Because I have not had to transfer any of my credits yet, that part of the question is not applicable to me. However, in working with the flexibility of my classes, the only difficulty I have found is that there are only certain classes available at certain times that do not work with the rest of your schedule. My situation about the matter is a little different because I live substantially farther away from the school than several other students, so I have to really try to make my schedule only two days - and that is sometimes much easier said than done.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wasn't planning on attending this school, but it just kind of happened as a last minute situation. Though it wasn't my first choice, I definitely do not regret going and think that it was a very cheap yet still good alternative to get my core classes out of the way before I transfer to a larger, more expensive university.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Nearly all of the professors I have had at this college have been amazing. Because I am an English major, I really appreciate the English professors, and each one I have had has been phenomenal. The professors there all seem to be very passionate about their work and take their job very seriously. I am in the honors program, which means that the class sizes are surprisingly small. Though I felt odd about this at first, reminding me too much of high school, I later came to appreciate it since it allows for such great one on one time with the professors. Each professor seems to have a different style of teaching, but I have not really had a problem with any of them!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The process of getting through orientation and becoming a student at Perimeter seemed to be very rushed and stressful.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Since I am currently in the midst of taking the first two online classes I have ever taken, I am still getting used to the expectations and workload. The professors for both of my courses are extremely helpful and are reliable to answer emails in a timely manner. The workload is not overbearing, but it is definitely a question of your own time management skills and self motivation - which I find to be extremely applicable to the real world.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I absolutely love the student body at Georgia Perimeter. The students are extremely diverse and nearly everyone I have met has been extremely friendly. Everybody seems to be extremely accepting of one another - no matter the race, gender, or religion. The diversity of the students has also aided my learnings in the classroom because we are all often asked for ways to relate on topics - since we all come from drastically different backgrounds, we are all able to provide a new perspective to others on the issues at hand.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is a headache that seems to be never-ending. No matter how many times I have gone and asked questions to those in the financial aid office, I still come up with something else to ask that was not clarified to me. Paying for college is already difficult enough, but though the tuition is cheap, there are still loans that are being taken out and scholarships that are not covering all that I though they would. As a tip, I would definitely recommend dealing with all financial aid aspects early on - you do not want to be sitting in the office for hours on end, waiting for your name to be called, just to leave without all of your questions answered.

3 College Senior

Career Services: The college does not seem to offer the best service when trying to deal with post-grad services.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being a Journalism Major at Georgia Perimeter as allowed me to have some amazing experiences. Though I have only taken one of my "Journalism" courses, the course was spectacular. The teacher was obviously extremely enthusiastic about the subject and had a lengthy background with a career that directly related to what we were learning in class. The workload wasn't overbearing and I truly feel like I learned a lot. Towards the end of the semester, we were able to take a tour of the WSB facility and we got a look at possibilities that would be open to us for internships during our junior year of school.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Overall, the academics offered at our school are wonderful. Though there are some less-than-great professors, a majority of the ones I have had have been extremely passionate about their course and have always been willing to help the students in whatever way they can. I take all honors courses at the college and am so glad I do so - I feel as if the curriculum is challenging enough to keep me on my toes, but it's not unrealistic. The class registration process can be a bit of a headache, especially when signing up for honors courses because you cannot do it yourself - you have to email the head of the honors department and get him to put you in the classes.

Campus Resources: Most things on my campus are very helpful except financial aid

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Six different campus provide six different experiences. All campus hold a diverse range of activities and people. Georgia Perimeter has a strong history and connection to the community of Clarkston, Georgia. Students take part in food drives, field trips, clubs, and activties on campus. The price for tuition is reasonable and the campus is full of plant and animal life. The professors are likable in general. However, the greatest obstacles will come from the  financial aid office. There is an International Center for Language Studies and a gym equiped with a pool. GPC has a lot to offer.
