Great Bay Community College Reviews

I’ve really enjoyed my time at Great Bay so far. My professors have taught their classes very well and have been understanding of students’ lives outside of school. I really like how small the classes are, too. My advisor has been beyond helpful with addressing my concerns and giving me advice on classes to take to help me transfer sooner. One aspect of the school I dislike is the limited amount of foreign language courses. Overall, it is a great school that I would highly recommend.

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.
