5 College Junior

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is that many people are friendly, teachers help with any questions. I would definitely chose this school again because the people in it are friendly and loving.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Transferring to a bigger university is my end goal. However this campus makes it difficult because my planning is best when I have a great counselor and sometimes I get out of luck and get a terrible one. That is what changed my outlook on this school. I was doing great until my health got in the way, when I came back and tried to get back on track I got stuck with a rude, selfish, not understanding counselor, they had me confused, stressed and wanting to drop out, which the end result was not returning to school for a semester.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had both the best professor ever on this campus and the worst on the planet also. It is easy however to manage that now, with online ratings. As for courses and class styles this campus is amazing, it is all about you and you get to choose what best suits you. Class sizes are smaller and more interactive and it makes the campus overall standout because its the first educational place I want to go back to and don't dread.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school does offer plenty of degrees, programs, and certificates, however, in my opinion it is best as a transfer school. To help a student straight from high school ease into college and transfer to a university. That is the main goal of many students. The school does a somewhat great job at doing so however it is russian roullete with whom your counselor is, you get a different one every meeting and sometimes they can be no help at all leading to stress, confusion and the student wanting a break.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being a Pre-Med major is a bit difficult in my opinion. I believe that is is easy beacuse it's very vast, however when you finally do narrow your decision, the years of learning drastically changes. Most medical students plan on 6 years or more and need to be extremely focused. The worst part is if you can't meet a certain goal and you're left with just pre-med which is difficult to find a job that way that will pay well and make you happy. You're either going to go to school for a long time and do something you're extremely passionate about or you will be stuck with pre-med where in order to find a job you can take the pre-med and continue getting programs or certificates in order to work somewhere.

Overall Experience: Glendale Community College is honestly hands down an amazing environment, I found myself usually wanting to be on campus and wished they had dorms. The environment is always calming and moving, mentally that is. It is usually quiet and safe which allows me to move around freely and explore. They have great help on every corner for students and always have a place for you to go. I was upset when I no longer was able to go to classes when I got sick and started to get dropped even with doctors notes. That was the disappointing part, it lead me to skip an entire semester. Doing that gave me thinking time, I know I want to go back for sure, now I am just struggling to do so. I want to worry less financially so I can focus on what is important, my health and my future. This campus gave me hope when times got rough, however is also made it difficult to stay.

Academic Flexibility: Is been a really great expirience for me.

3 College Junior

4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It's great because I could do many other things with my career choice.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would maybe choose a different school of I applied for others but besides that my school is a good school.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The teachers care but they won't push you to always

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a great school aND the atmosphere is amazing the teachers are good and they treat you with respect

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Class times are very reasonable and I can keep a constant schedule each day with very little differences. I had no transferrable credits since I did not do dual enrollment in high school.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: While the online courses are great it is somewhat difficult to find classes that I can take online. And it is very difficult to keep track of an online course while taking a full physical workload which is why I usually take them in the summer semester.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Transferring with my degree is easy. Once my studies are complete here I would like to transfer to Northern Arizona University.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are so many courses that are offered that it was hard for me to figure out what I really wanted to do. You can take Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Astronomy and many others. The professors are very friendly and I actually want to go to school to learn and hear the professors teach. Class sizes are small but interactive and social. I've made so many friends.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Switching majors was much easier than I thought and I feel that a career is much easier to obtain than with fine arts. People are always on campus recruiting for people to hire. There are many job fairs held at school and the career center is always inviting.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Each music teacher is helpful and good at engaging you in learning. Within the music department I have formed a family of sorts and each person I have met has been friendly and inviting to me. Learning music has been hard but has been so much more fun than the fine arts.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is amazing. While it can get crowded at times depending on what major you go for there is something for everyone. I recently changed my major to music and the music department of GCC is one of the best in the state in my opinion. There are many choirs you can choose from and you can take voice, piano and various other instrument lessons. The professors each have a unique personality and make learning fun and engaging.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I am a new college student but I did have AP credits from high school which I am including in transfer credits. Most of these were accepted but not all, and some some only transferred for what equated for half the class and the second half had to be taken at the college. For example, AP Chem covered all the material for Chem 151 and Chem 152 but only counted for 151.

2 College Senior

Career Services: The only one I know of is the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society which is the national community college honor society. That is what you make of it. Work hard, participate, and apply for things and it will benefit you. If you don't put effort in, it won't make much of a difference.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are great. Class sizes are small which means interesting conversations with said professors usually at a class level or two above the class you're in. Courses are easy. You can usually choose whether to learn or not. If you are smart but can't motivate yourself to make the class interesting, you will find it boring

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a community college, a stepping stone to university. You can get some trade school type courses that add up to something you can use such as their nursing, EMT, and vet programs (I'm a medical student) but mostly you are just taking classes that will transfer which, by itself, isn't worth much until you get you're university degree which is where it counts.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a Physics/Electrical Eng. dual major though I intend to go to med school for graduate school. I have not done much on the engineering side of things yet.

Physics on the other hand is fun. It isn't as hard as it would be at a university but, due to the small class sizes, we usually have extra time to talk amongst ourselves and with the teacher leading to many interesting conversations about concepts well beyond the class level (wormholes, black holes, bending space-time, etc.) but this is limited to class involvement. Many physics majors are quiet and prefer to just take notes on the subject at hand. There were a few of those and they are probably not as enthusiastic. If you are an aggressive learner I would take these over University courses.

On the pre-med side I have taken some chemistry, which I felt was entirely repetitive from high school, and an EMT training course which was amazing though, not having experienced any similar courses, I do not know how I would rate it compared to them. It is very disorganized but they teach mostly through action. They'll spend some time teaching the skills and knowledge but then you quickly end up having to apply them on the spot when someone rushes into the room yelling "SAVE MY BABY!" and throwing a baby manikin at the nearest person. The best part was "stage drill" which I won't spoil in a review as the best part was the surprise. Take the class if you want to know.
