It's support for students and available resources. Students are encouraged to do their very best by amazing staff and professors.
I like how it feels like a family and the faculty there is there for you when you need it the most. I would like a bigger campus.
Graduating high school went by quick and I had not saved enough money towards my education. Guttman was a great choice because it was low cost, classes were small and had programs that helped you stay on track and prepared you for a 4 year college

One thing I like about Guttman Community College is a diverse. Also, the College students that are either Undocumented or not.
I came to this school because i heard many good things about it. I wanted a school that gave me the ultimate college experience although it was a community college. The school was extremely small and to my surprise i found myself having no say about much. my schedule was made i had to take morning classes i had no say in that. They also made everyone take remedial courses. They also wanted you to last anywhere around 3-5 years in a 2 year school which was enough for me to get out of there.
What I like about Guttman is that is school gives you all the help you can ask for and more such as with academics and personal life .They give you information on everything
I wouldn’t change anything I also love that first year students get a chance to make friends due to having classes together .you never feel alone
Great staff helping you succeed. Great professors, small classes, encouragement everywhere. I would like for the school to expand to allow more students in the same building rather than the sps building
The best college no lie hands down. the resources they have to help students for every subject and every grade average is the best. they have great connections with other programs that can help your careers or interest or even clubs. their always giving money back to students. the only thing i hate is tht we don't have sports but we can join with other colleges , and their is a lot of Spanish people its not as diverse . we don't have a lunch room we get discounts for places in times square
Hi my name is james aya ,18 years old and currently attending my first semester in Guttman Community College. Personally i believe that this college provides many opportunities and perks depite having a low or affordable tuition. The aspect i believe is most satisfying is the sorrounding environment, being in the center of new york ,it doesnt get better than that.
I loved everything about Guttman. When you first read and research it you expect a lot. But when you actually enter the school and become a student, your expectations are exceeded beyond belief. The area is great, the people are great and the programs are great. They motivate and give students chances to really get their degree in 2 years. They even provide unlimited monthly metrocards! Overall an amazing school.
My overall experience at Guttman gave me an idea of the college life and how plan ahead and decision-making is so critical. You get to see how you're not alone in this and there are others just like you in wanting something better for themselves. The more you know, the more choices you'll eventually make and these choices will either reflect you or inspire you to make better ones next time. I saw this through the type of classes I took and the professors I had and met. I wanted to stay there longer but before I noticed I had obtained the total number of credits needed to graduate and I did.
Guttman is a small college located in the heart of NYC. The advantage is that you're surrounded by a lot of restaurants and entertainment. The college treats you like a member of the community. They actually care about your well-being. The college is also really diverse, you'll find people from different countries. The disadvantages are that there's not many sports here which makes sense because it's fairly new, the professors are hard (some can be a bit abrasive), the first year is almost pointless in my opinion, you don't really do anything focused on your major and some classes are unnecessary. Overall,I think this school is decent.
there are clubs you can join to get involved on campus but for basketball, you have to go the park to play it. I would like for that to change, there are no dorms or housing either. student safety is great, the food is good, the professors are excellent. nevertheless, it's a really good community college.
GCC was a awesome place to start my college career. The community, the professors, and the staff all created an environment that really helped us do our absolute best in completing our degree work and also created a bond between students that I have never ever seen on a college campus since leaving. There were some issues with the size of our location (The school is in desperate need of a location change) but over all, its a great place to learn, a great place to build friendships, and a great place to figure out exactly who you want to do with your life.
My experience at Stella and Charles Guttman Community College has been, overall, very poor. While there are many resources available to the students and peers and staff are very kind on an academic level, many professors can be unprofessional and are often hired on the merit of their fieldwork rather than classroom work. Additionally, classes are non-flexible for the first year and the odd semester set-up means that you are attending classes for twelve months out of the year.
I was able to make my personal & school life work in harmony.
I love the school so far its more then I expected.

They want to assist me in doing what I dream to be.
They are different from other colleges and aren't trying to fit in with them
They are opening my eyes to things I didn't know nor thought of.
