Grand Rapids Community College Reviews
Great school! I really wish they had some type of housing available for students, like cheap apartments or dorms. There isn't much support for commuter students, but for overall there is a lot of student support. A great environment to learn in, and easy to navigate the buildings
I love Grand Rapids community college, there are many aspects as to why this is one of the best community colleges in Michigan, and the affordable cost of courses is one aspect. The classes are reasonably priced and provides the same academic challenges and values as a university would. I also love how welcoming and helpful the professors other staffs that work for the college are. All of the professors I’ve had from the time I’ve been at Grand Rapids community college have all been great, and very helpful, even if it’s past office hours. Not only are the professors and staffs amazing there are many organizations that can satisfy others interest. Grand Rapids community college is also diverse in my opinion, and I say this because I am a person of color and also multi racial. The diversity at the college is really good.
When I applied at GRCC, I didn't think I will like it because I was planning to attend Davenport University. I got rejected at Davenport University because of my sat score and I was very disappoint in myself. Then, I decided to apply at GRCC after being rejected at Davenport University and I got accepted at GRCC by taking a Replacement test. My first year at GRCC I was scared because I didn't know I will able to make new friends or get used to GRCC campus. After one week, I started making new friends and I got used to GRCC campus. I like the food and the food server know how to welcome students. All my teachers welcomed me so well and I felt comfortable.
