I have been going to Gadsden State Community College for two years now and I love it. I have spent the majority of my academic life at the Ayers Campus of GSCC and my major is HVAC. My plans is to further my education by completing my core classes at GSCC and transferring over to Jacksonville State University to earn a Masters in Engineering. I am well acquainted with many of the staff and have even worked as a Teacher Aid. My instructor, Joe Hulsey, has helped me find a summer job over the last summer in HVAC, and he has helped me find a career that I will be going full-time after this semester while I take online classes. Gadsden State Community College is a great two-year university at a great cost.
So, as I have seen so far with this college, professors genuinely care about you and how well you’re doing. They have not stopped to make sure you’re where you need to be but make sure you’re learning how to also do it on your own. Sure, they aren’t perfect, but they try their best. The college itself is moderate, not a go to for me, but I did have to go here for a year. I would love to have more mingling kind of things so that I can meet new people! Overall, I would give the college a B+!!
