I completed all of my pre-nursing prerequisites at GCC. I have been quite impressed with most of the professors. I feel like I'm getting a quality education. The campus is big enough that you have what you need nearby but not so large it's overwhelming. Parking isn't too difficult to find (except for the 1st week of every semester). The Math Discovery Center is a really great resource, the library is very impressive with a lot of resources available. The nursing program at GCC was my #1 choice and it's amazing! The bookstore has the essentials at a fair price. There are a few Coffee Beans on campus and several vending machines for a quick snack. The vending machine coffee isn't horrible. The counseling department is very organized and the staff is extremely friendly.
Review Your College
The overall feel for the school is great, it has a wonderful landscape. The teachers and staff (from what I experienced) are very focused during class and if you pay attention in class you will discover that you will learn alot from these teachers. They seem to care and don't mind spending extra time after class after class to explain the concept, unless of course they have a meeting haha!
I know many people who have said negative things about this school. However, I think those people are just bummed out about themselves and feel discouraged about being in a community college. I'm not saying this is the best school to be in, but I've loved the past 2 years I've been here. Most professors care about their students and will stay an extra amount of time to help them after class. Administration might be pretty vague at times when you're in need of help, but if you are determined to get answers to your questions AND know which questions to ask, everything is fine. I love coming here and I know I'll be sad to leave once I transfer out.
