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 Glendale Community College - California
Glendale Community College offers far more than most colleges do. Not only are campus activities going on every day of the school year, they are fun and intriguing, and even the quietest of students are able to break out of their bubble to participate. Activities are for all people with various interests, starting from small clubs ranging to the extraordinary scholars program. Teachers are understanding and helpful, and the classes offered are truly interesting.
Good school, I started going there with one class a semester at 13 and then switched to full-time at 15. I've had some of the best teachers i've ever had here (s/o to Flavio Frontini and Sarah Mecheneau!), and some of the worst. The cafeteria food is disgusting but there's a Whole Foods and some good restaurants within a few miles if you're willing to walk or have a car. I get cat called a LOT and many of my female friends report the same thing. Once some guy grabbed my wrist walking across the bridge by myself at night, and another time a group of guys surrounded me. They didn't do anything and I was able to walk away, but I felt really unsafe. Lots of different night and morning classes, but basic credit requirements (i.e., chemistry, basic math, basic english) can be impossible to get into.
