I'm at GRCC to save money before I make that transfer. The school is easy to navigate once you learn the buildings. I like my teachers, although I think my English teacher is a little overwhelmed this semester, which is hard for me as a student because she is so unorganized. My math teacher is amazing though, she really cares about us individually. I've learned more from my math teacher about student loans than the actual financial aid office. Don't even get me started about the financial aid office...every time I speak to a counselor it leaves me feeling more confused than before! Questions go unanswered and no helpful information is provided, which is so frustrating from the students end!
Review Your College
My experience in Grand Rapids Community College was life transforming. I was scared of Mathematics but I am no more, this is because of the great academic tutorials that they have and also the Fast-track was the best I have attended and it helped me in obtaining an A- in Math 98.
What I like about Grand Rapids Community College is that they have Academic advisers and counselors that are available for students at any time. You can schedule a meeting with an adviser or counselor based on appointment for about 30 minutes. This is very important as a student because they can help or advise one, when you are having difficulty in a class or during the semester. Which serves as a guide in your career.
What I would love to see changes is concerning the transportation to Sneden Hall. This is because during Summer classes there is no provision for the shuttle and students would have to walk under the sun or take a bus, which is cumbersome.
I love the Culinary Program I attend here at GRCC, It's ranked within the top 10 Culinary schools of the nation. I feel proud to be of such high ranking place. I feel like I learn a lot and am also taught by some of the best chefs out there! I only wish they had more times for classes to choose from that worked with my schedule a little better.
