Great Basin College Reviews
Studying at Great Basin College has been a wonderful experience thus far. GBC has an excellent variety of classes, instruction times, and modes of instructions. GBC has allowed me to be flexible in my school, making it more enjoyable and less of a hassle, making it possible for me to work full-time as well as be a full-time student! This community college has also been easy on my bank account. I'm able to pay for college, the bills, and have a little extra for me. Two thumbs up!
Great Basin college is great for many reasons but it is definitely not your typical college experience. Great Basin reaches out to all rural Nevada so I was able to move from winnemucca to Elko and stay at the same college which was ideal. It is also very affordable and has many bachelors degree. Well Great Basin does offer many online college classes, I am not able to take most of my upper level teaching classes online which can get very inconvenient. I would like to see a lot more online classes.
Great Basin College is affordable and the Winnemucca branch has an amazing, helpful staff! I love going to school through Great Basin College!
