I have been attending Gavilan College for three semesters and during those 3 semesters, I have learned various things about the college and about my major. Gavlina college has helped me prepare for my next steps, with rigorous courses and also with great experiences. Most of my instructors are great professors, they dedicate a great amount of time to their students.

Finally, I will like to see Gavilan College as a more productive and innocating college.

I enjoy Gavilan because it is such a small and welcoming community college. There are professors and leaders who push so people to excel in their studies. This is very comforting and great for students to hear by their peers. The only great thing would be, if there were more classes offered of the same subject.
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.
