Grand Rapids Community College Reviews

Grand Rapids Community College has fantastic professors. They offer financial assistance and are willing to help do what it takes to get students to graduation! The area location is downtown Grand Rapids which is safe, beautiful, and pleasant. The only set back being that downtown housing tends to be more expensive. Community life at any community college is hard as every student is a commuter, but GRCC does a great job sending email updates so students are aware of whats going on on campus!

I am still currently attending GRCC but the thing I love most about this college is that the credits transfer over to larger universities very easily! It’s nice to know that you can obtain an associates degree at a super reasonable cost as well. I wouldn’t really change anything about GRCC! Although the party scene is basically nonexistent that’s honestly a good thing because you’re able to focus on school that much more. The tutor labs that cc has to offer are amazing as well. Grad students and professors are there to help go over materials in class and help you study for big tests! They absolutely rock.
The teachers are great! Very insightful but also keep it entertaining. Benefits available: easy parking, transportation around campus during class hours, restaurants on campus, multiple great libraries. It's an overall enlightening experience and I'm glad I chose to attend.
