Great cost of attendance! The tuition cost is by far the lowest of most surrounding colleges, and the campus is beautiful. The parking situation could be made much better, as it is often very difficult to find park, or there is no parking available. The variety of foods on campus could also be much better. The eCore online classes offered are definitely very limited, which is a big issue on a campus that is primarily made up of commuters. The classes offered on campus are also quite limited, especially considering the amount the amount has grown over the years, and the availability for upper level classes in most majors.

I am a sophomore here. I love the class sizes and my professors so far! The tuition is cheap and the people here really care about you. The campus is clean and beautiful; there are plenty of computers to do work, etc. It is quality education for the price. Obviously don't expect parties or anything too extravagant, but for what I was looking for, it's great!
My experience at Georgia Gwinnett College is best described as two extremities on a scale both negative and positive, balancing them perfectly to create an average experience for students. The institutions commitment to a student's academic career can not be overstated. The staff and resources available are top notch. All the while keeping tuition costs microscopic compared to major state colleges. Unfortunately their greatest strength is also their weakness. Due to their academic and financial model, student life is abysmal. This breeds a culture of isolationism akin to high school cliques.
