Green River College is one like no other. I've never been somewhere where everyone got accepted the way they are. No matter where you're from, what your religion is, how you look, sexual preference, goals in life, etc. The campus is small and you easily see people you know by walking around. Professors really know you and care, like about your grades, or if you have difficulties with a certain class. There are a lot of international students from all over the world and there is a big advising team for both domestic and international students who help you any way they can to meet your needs. I live in the campus corner apartments next to the college which is a really nice place to live. They offer clean private bedrooms in a four bedroom, two bathroom apartments. The college also has a great student life office! They organize all sorts of trips on weekends, from hikes in national parks to rock climbing and trips to zoo's or Seattle.

Green River is a great place for the high school student wanting to get a head start on their degrees, through running start, and a great place to safe some money before finishing one's bachelor out of high school. Classes are relatively affordable. They have a variety of clubs and programs to join. The only thing that isn't amazing about Green River is the large handful of not so great professors. I've been there for a year so far and have been thankful to have some good profs, but some have just been awful. In some instances, you can't choose another, because there's only one class option and it's with that professor. They tend to teach based on their biases, not fact. However, the good profs are absolutely amazing and you will learn well. Thankfully, the good seem to outweigh the bad.
First of all, I love all the trees and fresh air! It's so beautiful! The Green River College community includes many hard-working students seeking to achieve their dreams. One thing I would like to see change is have some of the higher level courses offered more frequently. For example, Green River has stopped offering MATH &173 completely while offering around 15 choices for MATH 97 per quarter. If the college will keep courses such as MATH &173, students will not need to take the course in other colleges.
