The teaching staff is really supportive, for the most part, and are there to help. My advisor, personally, is one of the beat and she really set me up for success with my classes. She was able to let me know the classes I needed without confusion or discouragement. With her help I was able to get everything I needed to enter the Nursing Program in the right time frame! I wouldn not want to attend any other college.
Gordon State College is located in a country town. When I first got there I didn't like it because I was use to the city. Then as a couple weeks pass by I started making friends. There are really nice people on campus. The dorms are relaxing and it makes me feel at home. My first year I didn't get along with my roommate, but now I have a new roommate. Gordon plans a lot of activities on campus such as: movie nights, talent shows, games, and etc. There are clubs. Even though Gordon does not have greek life they do have a step team called SWAZI. The sports on campus are basketball, soccer, softball, baseball, flag football, and cheerleading. There is a dance team as well called Lady Essence. The cafeteria food is satisfying. GSC offers free tutoring. There is a brand new gym that just opened in March 2015 which is called the SARC building. I really love it. Yes I am attending GSC again this fall and I enjoyed all of my time of Fall 2014-Spring 2015 and now I'm pumped and ready to go back this year. I love being a Gordon State Highlander!
Gordon State is a very resourceful school. All of the free resources from tutoring to internship opportunities are really a great help. I really love the diversity and all of the extracurricular activities there as well. The campus is very beautiful and clean, plus it’s really close to town so u doesn’t really need a car unless you want to go out. The teachers are very kind and helpful and they really are all for the students there, their all for giving individuals an equal chance at education. The food is very good; it’s a lot of diversity when it comes to that as well.
