Gordon State College Reviews
I love Gordon State College! I transferred from another school and couldn't have been any happier. The professors are all so caring about your education and your well-being. They go above and beyond to make sure you understand the content and connect you with community resources. The campus is beautiful and the class sizes are perfect!
Gordon State College is good for students who want to achieve an education at an affordable cost. The faculty/staff are very helpful and attentive to your needs when it comes to the completion towards your degree. I love how the school is very close knit meaning that in whatever class that you choose to attend (especially the ones that pertains to your major) you tend to develop a special bond with your professors and classmates. Some of the classes that I have attended with certain professors they teach you a lot that could help benefit you throughout your college career along with possibly your future career. As for changes, I personally don't see any that need to be made at all.
I am a nursing major at Gordon State college. The school is small so you can walk to your classes you will not get lost! It is also easy for you to get to know everyone on campus. The professors are helpful and they want you to succeed. Gordon also offers resources to help you succeed in your classes such as a tutoring service.
