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.

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.
I received my associates degree from Gaston college and I couldn’t be happier about my decision to go there. The faculty and staff is absolutely amazing. They are so helpful in ensuring you succeed and setting you up for your future endeavors. My advisor over my program was the best , she was always there with academic advice and helping me stay on the right path to achieve my goals. The teachers in my program were great you could tell they really cared about teaching and your success. Going to Gaston college was the best thing I ever could have done , I don’t regret my decision one bit.
