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.
Review Gaston College
This school absolutely sucks!!!! I got my Associates degree from Gaston in 2010 my degree was supposed to be in Early Childhood but a employee of the school accused me of doing something which i had nothing to do with and because of it I lost the one class i needed for my degree. Instead of a ECE degree i graduated with a General Ed. degree which does hold much standing. Well during the whole taking the class away process I WAS DENIED A APPEAL WHICH IS STATED IN THE STUDENT HANDBOOK THAT ALL STUDENTS HAS THE RIGHT TO. I was told by three different dean's that due to the fact that is was an school employee doing the accusing I WAS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR AN APPEAL
All in all if you need a school to get your general courses like your math, english, science etc outta the way to transfer to a 4 yr then yeah its a semi-good school but if you go to get a 2 yr degree WATCH YOU P'S AND Q'S THEY MIGHT JUST TAKE YOUR DEGREE AWAY LIKE THEY DID ME.
I am about to begin attending Gaston College and have been to the campus many times to get all of my paperwork filed. All of the staff and faculty I have met so far have been very helpful. The campus is nice and well maintained. There are no dorms/housing because it's a community college. That is also the reason there isn't much of a party scene. There are numerous police/security on campus, and so I feel very safe there.
