So far I have enjoyed Great Bay Community College. Some classes are tough with homework, but that is expected. All of the professors that I have had have all been very helpful and are very willing to work with you if you have any issues and most are pretty understanding. The campus is nice and there’s a restaurant that cooks your food right in front of you. The food there is very good. Overall I’ve enjoyed my experience so far and it will be upsetting to have to move on.

Great Bay is a great community school for those looking to take a few classes or transfer to another school. It is affordable and condensed into one building, which makes getting to know the place very easy. Anyone who isn't sure what they want from college or is looking for a good place to start should take a look at Great Bay
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.
