Gavilan College is a good college, that's really my best way to describe it. I liked how Gavilan really made me feel like a student and the other students on campus are friendly and glad to help however they can. i really liked most of the teacher I had, they were all so enthusiastic about teaching and helping their students. The sports teams never really got my attention, football team wasn't too great, basketball was alright, the women's volleyball team was amazing though. The party scene here was dead. The town of Gilroy has no nightlife, but it's a quiet little town that offers great place to settle down someday that's for sure. Gavilan College could have been a way better experience for me if it was a much more livelier campus and if it was a little more upgraded with newer buildings.

I chose to attend Gavilan College because it was the closest college to where I live. I was very comfortable with this institution. Some of the Science and Math classes were very impacted, so it was difficult to get in. I had a good experience with some classes, however others were a bit harder to understand. Gavilan College is not a big campus, so it is easy to get around. I think the counselors are great, and they really help you out when you need a little guidance. Overall, it is not the worst college to attend, but I believe there could be some changes to make it better.
Gavilan is a good, local community college to start working on your GE or preparing to transfer. The classes are small so it’s much more welcoming and the instructors generally remember who you are. It isn’t too hard to add courses when registering as there is usually space available. One thing is that the counselors are not the most helpful or the most friendly, so you’re better off researching on your own or asking a knowledge instructor rather than a counselor.
