The thing I love the most about Gavilan is that the teachers there treat me like a person. When I had personal issues, I felt comfortable enough to talk to them, and I was given the help and support I needed to get through. I even became really good friends with a couple of my past teachers, and we text each other regularly now! The campus is a bit old, but the school recently got a grant to use on fixing up their buildings. Construction of a new library will start in a year or two! The area is very nice, in the foothills with lots of beautiful nature and animals. The wild turkeys are hilarious! The campus food isn't half bad, and it's only about a couple miles away from a shopping center with a lot of places. There are also a lot of clubs, sports, student services, and activities here. I really recommend it to anyone in the area looking for a community college.

The warm community that Gavilan College’s staff create is what makes it so wonderful, and it truly provides students the opportunity to discover themselves and discover the beauty of learning
Throughout my time at Gavilan College, I have found that classes have been liberating for my brain that seeks knowledge. Gavilan professors tend to be very organized and experienced in the subject that they teach. However, I found that some professors have been slightly questionable. The majority of Gavilan College teachers are absolutely wonderful as their lectures are eloquent and thorough. They are willing to be flexible and accommodating for students under different circumstances than most.
The number of good Gavilan College teachers outweigh the teachers who aren’t the best and will make the Gavilan College campus welcoming.

It’s physical beauty and warm community are what make Gavilan College so wonderful.
Gav's great! Caring professors, plenty of student resources, determined students. One thing to improve upon would be having increased campus safety and security services, especially for night classes.
