My experience at this college has been great so far. There is nothing for me to complain about honestly. The facilities are held up to the best condition and the students are encouraged to use all the tools at their disposal to help them excel in their studies. The food is great and is worth the money your are paying for. The campus has events to keep students in the loop by interacting with one another. There is no parties that take place on campus, which is something that is great considering the calm like environment that suits the campus. Georgia Perimeter College is 4/5 overall for establishing an environment to up hold students to be successful.
Review Georgia Perimeter College
I was able to have classes according to the specific times during the week that best suited my schedule. The only frustrations I've had is when a professor only taught one or two classes daily and those classes ran out of open slots, so I didn't have the chance to register for those classes. I had to settle with different professors who were really difficult to deal with (only a few like this). I haven't tried transferring credits yet, but hope to do so this summer!
With all the difficult challenges life posed to me in my second home Ghana, I have matured physically and mentally. Now I am in Georgia Perimeter College ready to tackle my next hurdle of education that will make me whole.

Currently, I am getting close to my sophomore year in the college and I have really learned a lot from this prestigious community college. I have made a lot of friends, met new people and experiencing a good college life. The college has a good location, great teachers who are willing to help you in every aspects of education and it also has good associations to join. I am currently in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement Program (MESA) and the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Scholars Program (PSLSAMP). I would wish to use every opportunity I have to gain an associate's degree in my computer science major and to help transfer to a four-year university to obtain a bachelor's degree in computer science. This is the beginning of my journey towards success.
