As a running start student, transitioning from high school to college was very terrifying. In the first quarter, I definitely enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting! However, professors at GR are either hit or miss. I have had the opportunity to learn from several great professors as well as several not to good ones. As I am continuing to earn my associate in pre-nursing while earning my high school diploma, I can say this has been one of the best decisions in my life. Also, I recommend to talk and start to get to know the people in your classes. They will be the most helpful. In all GR is a great and small college. However, the unfavorable professors that I have had (especially during this pandemic) during online school have made each quarter very difficult. The campus is really small and there are so many resources that are available to every student!

I first attended Green River as a running start student while attending Auburn Mountain View High School, and I must say that Green River had given me a very relaxing transition from school life to college life. Their various time spots for classes made it easily accessible for me to do classes at anytime that is convenient for me, and not only were they convenient, the professors there were also very good at educating students at what they need to learn in the courses they take! And even if the regular class hours are not enough, there will always be extra help with the professor’s office hours or with the additional help of tutors in various areas around campus to give all the help I needed. It is also in an area where many people live close by, and this includes where I lived too. Just taking the public busses were enough to get there, so it has very easy transportation depending on where the person is. Green River gave me a fresh introduction to college life!
So far my experience at Green River College has been great! I've had positive experiences with all of my professors and they've all been a great help in passing my classes. The campus is beautiful - coming fully equipped with a cafeteria, relaxation areas, a large library, a computer center, as well as a cafe and little shop. They also offer many helpful services to their students, counseling and tutoring being just two of those services. My year spent so far there have been very positive, and I will be returning for another!
