Review Grand Rapids Community College
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!
Instead of going to a university, save money by going to a community college. I saved over five thousand dollars. Just like other universities, join clubs, organizations and get involved on campus. There are opportunities to work on campus and off-campus. There is a wide range of students from high school juniors taking dual enrollment to energetic and optimistic senior citizens depending on your class schedule. The downside would be parking is scarce, and can get expensive. If you schedule your classes after five or six in the evening, it's free. If you're looking for a fresh start and are undecided, go here, and you'll definitely get the help you need.
My overall experience with Grand Rapids Community College was a good one. I attended right after high school before going to GVSU. I decided to save some money and finish all my gen eds before transferring since I still did not have an exact career in mind other than wanting to work in the health care field. The cons were having to pay for parking, horrible advisors, and that their main building was very outdated. I remember taking chemistry with a professor who had a thick accent which made it difficult to understand. The science building was my favorite building and was where I spent most of my time taking classes there. I do wish they would have more programs available because it was cheaper and closer to home.
