Gordon State College Reviews
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.
Would like to see the dormitories change and exchange professors who do not care about their jobs for professors that do. Maybe employ a larger crew to clean, because some things would be nice if they weren't dirty and hardly ever looked over. Maybe start a partnership with Griffin healthcare clinics so nursing students can have more opportunities. Food was good. Depending on the class, it was good.
My time at Gordon State College was really good. I got to stay in my own room and made some new friends while I was living in the dorms. I even participated in club activities that helped me get connected to other people. While Gordon was a great school to live in, it wasn't without its challenges. There were some things I struggled with, mainly writing papers that required approximately 1,000 words. I was good at math but that didn't meant I knew just about everything because I sometimes had trouble understanding the problems and would always seek tutoring advice from another person. Even though I didn't do as well as I hoped, I still had fun while I was at there.
