I've had an excellent experience at Great Bay. It's cheap and there are plenty of night classes to work around individual schedules. As a liberal arts major, it's been a little confusing figuring out what I need to have done, and I may have to go back for a fifth semester. I don't really mind, as finishing up my general requirements at GBCC is going to give me a transfer scholarship afterwards as well. Great resources and the staff, from what I've experienced, are more than happy to help with any questions. The teachers I've had have been very knowledgeable, although some have been a bit dry as far as their teaching-style goes. I haven't had a bad experience with other students; everyone seems to be incredibly friendly! Good school to go to if you're not sure what you want to major in and you want to save some money! As far as campus life goes, there are a few clubs and sports, but I haven't joined any.
Review Great Bay Community College
Laid back and helpful! Teachers are great, classrooms are small and not too overwhelming and the amount of degrees offered to study with transfer programs and dual study admissions is amazing!
Great school and great helpful staff! Teachers are very helpful. There are a wide variety of programs and class at the fraction of the cost of a university!
