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.

As soon as I caught sight of Garrett College, I knew that it would be perfect for me. It's surrounded by gorgeous snow-capped mountains and it's coated in a blanket of peace. Not only that, but the staff was so approachable. Even though their time was valuable, I could tell that they cared about what I had to say and worked with me so well. I observed how others interacted, and the students were so kind to the teachers and vice versa. It's an easy environment to learn and feel comfortable in. I definitely suggest that anyone that isn't interested in a packed, hurried university go check it out. I'm excited to start my years there.
Garrett College is a small college but if offers many opportunities & connections, although the harsh cold weathers may manipulate your decision to apply. Garrett College professors are hands on & maintain a one on one with each student making it easier to retain all information.
