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.

I like that the professors consistently push their students to reach their full potential. I was one of those students that was shy to share my smarts and contribute my thoughts to class discussions; I would usually only apply it on paper. My professor purposely picked on me (not literally) in class because he knew I had something up my sleeve that could make for a great discussion and my input could possibly help others in the class. Now I am a lot more comfortable with speaking up on topics I feel for. I have also heard my friends on campus say the same thing about their professors, so I know I am not the only one. I think that is really important because a professor that actually cares and wants to see their students succeed encourages a student to actually try in the classroom.

There are also a numerous amount of resources, clubs, sports, and activities that students have access to which also plays a huge role in a student's success.
Glendale Community College gives you many different kinds of activities. I am an international student, so I was afraid of making friends and speaking English. However, they supported me to enjoy campus life as international club activities and sports. They also guide me when I was confused in class. They let me join tutoring programs such as math and music. When I had a problem with homework, I always asked them who taught for free in a tutor. My last semester, finally I got a good grade because of college's supports. I am very thankful that I joined in school activities.
