Grand Rapids Community College Reviews
Grand Rapids Community College is very diverse! It has great food options and transportation options. Parking can take some time, or even be a little jammed, but there is more than enough space for everyone. The professors are quite nice and patient and try to make sure everything is understood. Also, GRCC is affordable and right in the middle of a diverse city with opportunities for everything.
What I like most about Grand Rapids Community College is the professors. Although there are some that do poorly at teaching their designated classes, the majority of professors care about their students. They are professional at delivering their lectures, and they also try to make the classroom environment a comfortable and engaging place to be in. On a different note, two aspects of the college that could be changed are the campus and security. In my opinion, it is not as lively or eye-catching as other college campuses. The panhandlers and lobbyists both significantly worsen the situation. As far as safety goes, there should be higher security, since anybody in Grand Rapids can easily walk onto campus grounds with a concealed weapon and hurt a student. Overall, GRCC is considered "average" to me.
Grcc has opened my eyes so much to a college experience. Their ability to transfer students to universities is incredible! For me I have been debt free from GRCC since 2016 from financial aid as well as the Pell Grant. I recommend this school for those who want to transfer to a university but also save some money at the same time.
