3 College Senior

Overall Experience: They hold job fairs every once in a while and from what I've heard they are pretty good.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Class workload is fairly manageable. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't study for online tests. There is usually a discussion board for students to discuss subjects.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is pretty diverse, often you might find yourself sitting next to someone from another country. So it is interesting because you get to learn things about other peoples cultures.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is pretty cheap in comparison to universities.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I haven't really explored the career center yet.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Fairly good teachers, some are really great and some, well, need to rethink their careers. Workload is bearable.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Because it's a community college you can only pursue an associates degree, which is great if you're transferring.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Clean bathrooms, nice teachers, no rec teams, good people. I like the library, small but good place to get work done.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: People go into community college expecting a university experience but it's not the same. Some Germanna campus are better than others

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I am a homeschooler, so I was okay with not having a flexible school schedule

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The only thing I really use here is the library, but I've found it extremely helpful!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The information was good and what was needed, but the customer service is very poor at times.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: I wouldn't do online classes, a poor way of learning due to basically teaching yourself rather than having an instructor help.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is not really very social with each other, a lot of people are more focused on going to class and focusing on their career nothing else, and going home when done with their work. The ones who are social don't seem to have a career or goal oriented focus, or can be quite disruptive and obnoxious.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition and financial aid was very confusing and hard to do, but for what I am paying for the education is worth it for sure.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Germanna has decent post education programs to help with careers, but I don't have a knowledge of fully on their career programs for after education.

College Junior

Academic Experience: I haven't fully started my official major only have worked on the General Education part.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Germanna isn’t really a school that students dream of attending—sports are unimportant, family legacies are irrelevant, and rigorous academics are lacking. Still, students say that for what it is—a community college that allows students to complete associate’s degrees, earn career certificates, and transfer to four-year universities—Germanna is an impressive institution. Students come from around the globe, and each has a different reason for choosing to study at Germanna. Some attend because they cannot afford the tuition at private schools, others because they want to complete general education requirements before transferring to a four-year university without as much debt, and some come to get an associate’s degree or career certificate, so they can prepare to enter the workforce and earn higher salaries. Other reasons students come to Germanna is because they weren’t accepted to any four-year universities, they have health concerns that prevent them from moving from home, they did poorly in high school and want to prove to four-year schools that they have become serious about their studies, or they are learning English and want to study in a safe and friendly environment before they enter the workforce.

While many Germanna’s students groan about still living at home and frequently joke about being in “13th grade” and having to deal with drama typically associated with middle and high school, overall, they say they are happy to be at Germanna. The faculty, administration, and staff constantly make studying here a pleasant experience because they are warm, friendly, engaging, and fun, and they always have time to speak with students. Most of the students are also friendly and pleasant, and they appreciate and take advantage of all that Germanna offers them. Okay, so not one Germanna graduate has become president of the United States, won a Nobel Peace Prize, or anything of the sort, but nearly every Fredericksburg resident has some connection to Germanna. Nearly every student here will say that studying at Germanna has been a rewarding and life-changing experience.
