Since it's a smaller campus, you get to know people in a more intimate way. Most of the classes are beneficial, and the professors know the curriculum well. There's not much I would change about Garrett!

I am a local student. I have lived in the area my whole life. Coming to the college was like a second high school for me. I was comfortable, and even knew some of the professors there already. I also like that it is a small campus, which means small classes. The professors actually know your name and you can get the one-on-one time that you may need with them. By the end of your freshman year, you know mostly everyone by name, and they know you. I think that is what makes this college so great, because I have heard horror stories about friends that have went to large universities and have no friends at all.
Pros:
•If you’re from Garrett County, you get free tuition* (See Cons)
•Small class sizes.
•The professors I’ve had have all been phenomenal.
•Already beautiful campus with even more renovations in progress.

Cons
•*If you get free tuition from being a County resident, and qualify for the Pell Grant, kiss it goodbye- I’m low income, and although I qualify for the Pell Grant (about $3,000 a year), they take it from me and claim to put it toward my tuition. (Apparently, the county scholarship only covers what the Pell Grant doesn’t, even though they advertise it as “Free for two years!” What a loophole.) I mean, I could use that extra money for books, supplies, travel and housing expenses, food, etc., but nope... I’ll never see it. And it comes out of my total Pell allowance so I won’t be able to use it when I transfer to a school I have to pay out-of-pocket for.
•Not much to do in the area.
