Gadsden State Community College Reviews
I cannot say enough positive comments about Gadsden State. All of my professors were great! They were easy to contact through the Blackboard system and quickly responded whenever I had a question. Their grading was always very fair. Because it is a community college, there aren't many people that actually live on campus. Therefore, there isn't exactly a party scene. There are dorms, but it consists of mostly athletes that live to far away to commute. The dorms have been recently remodeled and are huge! There are two spacious bedrooms that share a large double vanity and bathroom.
Gadsden State has lots of diversity. They offer a lot of programs and opportunities especially for those who plan to go into the medical field. The Instructors are awesome and are very intelligent too which I could just soak in all their teaching all day! I love learning at Gadsden State because of the almost family-like oriented community. Although there is a lot of diversity, there is also a lot of community. Gadsden State always has some type of event or fair going on! Classrooms are not overcrowded and it is really easy to get feedback from professors because of that!
Before COVID-19, I took my class on campus. I enjoyed being on campus, meeting fellow classmates, and, most importantly, getting the face-to-face teaching that fits my learning style the best. After COVID-19, all my classes are online. Even though I do struggle some, my instructors have always responded quickly when I contacted them for help or clarification with my assessments. My advisor, Mr Sudduth, is making sure I stay on track with my Accounting Technology degree and is helping me to meet requirements for my Associates degree.
