The TRIO support office and staff are so helpful and encouraging. Student Life offers a variety of campus activities and opportunity to volunteer at events. Events are entertaining and engaging, there are often contests and raffles, food and prizes for students. Student Support Center and Student Support Services are both wonderful tools to better guide and direct for success. The new Registration office is open and easy to navigate through the process of signing up for classes and on to changing classes if necessary. Administration provides the highest quality education and support through a variety of different departments. The Library has a huge collection of books and information suitable for all the programs offered at GHC.

Grays Harbor College strives to offer the best programs possible, some of the most competitive include the nursing program, diesel mechanic and forestry technician. Among having a high standard for student safety and well established support both in the counseling department and services department, the faculty and staff are very engaging and are almost always available for student needs. The curriculum is challenging and focused specifically toward each area of study, whether business or general education, with a variety of options from certificates to AAS/T or Direct Transfer degrees. There are computer labs and a large library and many resources to study and get information, as well as support in finding scholarships, special programs and services. Registration is easy and transition from class to class is as well.

Considering this is my first year at Grays Harbor College. I love it! I think going here first has really prepared me to transfer to a 4 year University. I would do it all over because the teachers are awesome, students are so diverse and interesting and it is just a fun, welcoming, supportive place to start my college career.
