Gaston College Reviews
What I like about Gaston College was that it projected a safety, friendly, close knit atmosphere. The Professors and Deans on this campus is concerning about your overall achievements and your career goals. They demonstrate this by sitting down with you and going over with your strengths and weakness and what it will take to make you successful in life. I never felt like I was not apart of something great they always make me feel special. I would recommend this community college to anyone! The only think that I could say that they need to improve on is finding a way to make their books more affordable.
My favorite thing about Gaston College is the effort that is put in by the Student Government Association and other amazing groups around campus that allow students to have amazing events. I always enjoy coming to the cafe after class to see a table set up or the cafe decorated for something they have put together. it gets all the students together and the tables are always full of conversation and fun. The professors and staff are amazing as well, but when they are testing us and giving us work, it is the SGA's events that I go to to have fun and destress.
I have only been at Gaston College for about a year, but the main thing I have noticed is that teachers and courses are of a very mixed variety. Teachers either genuinely care about the education of their students or couldn't care less. Courses are either comprehensive or hard to follow and unreliable. I hope in the coming year I remain here that I will see more of the former for both teacher and their curriculum.
