Glendale Community College - Arizona Reviews
Some fantastic instructors and a good looking campus. There is a park and public library right behind the school, but the surrounding area is rather poor. Receive a safety report from the campus security in response to an event about every month, but there is an obvious police presence on campus with a local Fire Department within view of the parking lot. Expect to hear a lot of Sirens due to this. Has EMT-P and Fire Fighter training, EMT-P program was mismanaged and not well organized with little communication between instructors. The instructors themselves were hit or miss, several were highly professional and helpful, others were inappropriate and took a put-down approach to teaching. Outside of that the science teachers have been great, with a well supplied lab, plenty of models and plastinates. Advisement was good but the financial aid staff were never helpful whenever I needed them and either misunderstood the situation or didn't understand, and weren't the most polite.
In high school, some teachers belittled community colleges which gave me low confidence about attending Glendale Community College (GCC). I'm here to say that GCC provides a friendly environment with tons of resources to help better your education. Professors often stress the many opportunities GCC offers, such as tutoring, counseling, and essay assistance. I would also like to applaud the athletic department in their passion for constantly seeking ways to improve their programs. There is nothing wrong with going to a community college. I have learned this by attending GCC.
GCC is a great community college for people on a budget looking to transfer or just those looking for a second chance through education. The quality of education is on par with what you can get at the state university level because the transferable credit classes will be using the same curriculum. The teachers for the most part are very friendly and make time to help you succeed. Very diverse community and I enjoy my time spent here!
