GCC offers its students many resources to succeed. The faculty are great! If you put in sufficient time and effort, you'll find that the teachers will help you in the class room, write great recommendations letters for you, and help you in every way they can so that you can succeed. There are many places where you can get help with homework and studying. There are diverse clubs and societies and events on campus. The campus itself is beatuful and picturesque. It's easy to get around, and the cafeteria offers a good selection of foods to suit various diets. The students come from varying backgrounds, which means you'll always meet interesting people! Then there's the GCC coffee place, Grounds for Thoughts; their drinks are absolutely delicious!

Developmental Disability Program – I enrolled in the Developmental Disability Certification Program at Glendale Community College. I thought this is an awesome opportunity to get a better understanding of disabilities, disability law, as well as people that are impacted by disabilities. Although I had a few issues with the teacher in charge of the program the information I learned was invaluable! There is an internship associated with the program, which led to a job/career for me. I have yet to find another school that provides a similar program that allows you to specialize your degree prior to receiving your bachelors.

Although the classes make you feel like you're back in high school again, the small class size helps a lot because the professors offer more one-on-one time. You don't feel like you're just a number in a lecture hall! Most of the teachers are nice, and almost all of them are extremely qualified for the positions they hold. The office administration can be grumpy sometimes, but they do have to deal with many students on a daily basis, so I guess I can understand that. My experience here at Glendale Community College has been great, I am glad I am deciding to earn my Associates Degree here before jumping in to a university to obtain my Bachelors Degree!
