Grand Rapids Community College Reviews
In my first year of starting college, I was very nervous and didn't know what the community would be like at the college. On the first day of college, a lot of staff members were greeting us and asking us if we needed any help find our classes and all students and staff had big smiles on their faces everyone is so friendly. Also, a week before college starts the college does a raider rally it's like a little tour of the college and you can sign up for groups with fun activities and even sports. It such a fun experience!
Thus far I've taken all of my classes at GRCC online. Each of them have been very nice. I love the Blackboard platform that we use. It is easy to navigate and fun to use. The professor were very nice and they taught the materials very well. I'm an very independent student so I didn't have to use the other features available as much, but my overall experience was great!
I took all my classes in person until Covid-19, then classes were all switched to online. They did an amazing job with communicating what was going on behind the scenes. There are some classes that are better off in person but due to the world's circumstances they are doing their absolute best to keep everyone safe!
