I have visited the campus a couple of times while trying to decide where to go this coming Fall. Each time I learned more about the college and what it has to offer. Each visit has been great! Everyone has been so helpful and welcoming. I look forward to attending their as a freshman this fall.

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.
