This is a very affordable and safe school to attend. I am currently working on my nursing degree, and have full confidence that I made a great decision. Plus the food at The Green Bean is fantastic!

The faculty/staff truly care about students. Classes and events are flexible for non-traditional students. Student life provides incredible leadership training and experience. The school is very safe and easy to navigate. Tuition rates are excellent. I would like to see better food options and/or a food plan. The current situation is with an outside company, and their food is extremely expensive.
So far, my experience with GBCC has been really amazing. Most of the professors I've had have been super nice and genuinely cared and wanted to help their students succeed. I did have a couple of professors that weren't great and one that even made fun of his students, including myself, to the members of security. That's not the schools fault however and regardless of that I would still greatly suggest this school as a starting point in their college career.
