Gaston College Reviews
Gaston is such a great community college, that gives kids the opportunity to save money while getting a good education. It allows students of all ages to obtain associate degrees that will allow them to transfer later or learn valuable trade skills to help them get into the workforce. It gives freshmen the opportunity to stay local and have a little more time to figure out what they want to do as a career.
The enrollment process was so easy ! This is my first time actually applying to a real college and everyone was so helpful! Made me feel very welcomed. I thought the process was going to be longer but it only took me a couple days to get everything going. I am going to be studying Paralegal.. I hope i like it ! The campus is so big as well !
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.
