Columbia Gorge Community College Reviews

For being a first-time college student, this college has been pretty simple to navigate, both building-wise and class-wise. Each September getting enrolled is a little bit of a paper crunch and confusing, but overall the atmosphere is inviting. We have school events monthly, and even school spirit days to keep the students involved.

Overall, the academics at CGCC are well diverse, and the teachers are more than willing to communicate with the students at most times of the days. The offices are prompt and helpful when issues and questions arise. Overall, I enjoy attending this school.
I've loved the classes I've been able to take online, they've allowed me to choose when I got to do the work assigned each week, and when I attended class. That was great for working around an inflexible work schedule. Discussion between peers was a bit limited, as well as interaction.
