I'm at GRCC to save money before I make that transfer. The school is easy to navigate once you learn the buildings. I like my teachers, although I think my English teacher is a little overwhelmed this semester, which is hard for me as a student because she is so unorganized. My math teacher is amazing though, she really cares about us individually. I've learned more from my math teacher about student loans than the actual financial aid office. Don't even get me started about the financial aid office...every time I speak to a counselor it leaves me feeling more confused than before! Questions go unanswered and no helpful information is provided, which is so frustrating from the students end!
This is a great starter college. They have a variety of professors that also teach at larger universities. It is like getting a full college experience for half the price. Going into nursing, I find that although they may not have the newest and greatest technologies and equipment, the professors are still able to teach us with real world applications. Even though the campus is not the greatest, everything is within walking distance. The college is close to the down town scene as well as having some classes available to me closer to home and online options. The teachers are very kind and understand to real life situations. Things happen and they understand that. However, they also emphasize the importance of showing to class on time and being prepared. This college is great for kick starting your education or to even pick up a few classes here and there. They have many classes available and many times as well to fit your everyday busy life.
I love that the college is downtown and is right across the street from the public library. The staff is very helpful and really tries to help you whenever they can. There are so many options to choose from when it comes to food to eat. The vending machines are well stocked with lots of options as well. However, you have to pay for parking every time you leave the garage and that's is very annoying. The on-campus library is a great place to study and at finals time they hold exam-cram and have free food and coffee for students.
