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!

This schoolt is good for the most part, I take on line classes, my current professor is very helpful, gives me tips on how to better my self and makes the learning experience enjoyable. As for my previous professors, not so much, one of them just kept on piling lectures after lectures and not really all involved, and the one along side with the same professor just made it very confusing with all the unnecessary extra apps we had to download to do our assignments. But that's over with, and I'm enjoying my previous professor.
Love this college! Its a small scale school so its easy to be involved and get the help you need. All staff is friendly and willing to guide you down the right road.
