I'm heading into my second year at Green River Community College. The difference in the amount that teachers care about the students' success is drastic. I've had teachers go all out to make sure I understand the material, things like meeting with me outside of office hours or giving me extra material to study. However, a few of my professors, especially the older ones, have been reluctant to answer questions or communicate with students about confusing assignments. There's not a lot of student life or a big party scene. It's a great place to go for focusing on school, especially if you're not entirely sure what you want to major in or what classes to take. The counselors help you figure out what you want to do and how to get there. Overall Green River Community College has been a good experience.
Review Green River Community College
Green river is a beautiful campus, very green and earthy with a lot of diversity and protection against discrimination. Crimes are little to none and are always reported through the student email. Every professor I have had is kind and willing to work with you and state their expectations at the beginning of the quarter and do not tend to change it through out. The website and everything is easy to navigate and understand (as an English speaker). The only thing negative would be that financial aid needs to be more specific about what forms need to be filled out, whether online or on campus.
Having received over 100 credits at this College I have much experience in its life and education. Over the several years of my attendance, many new buildings have made there way unto the campus making it an even more beautiful area. The surrounding environment is inspiring as I have taken several walks after having taken stressful exams or to just take a break between studies. The many professors I have had have never disappointed because of the wide array of knowledge I have taken from them. Also, the student life is very eclectic making it easy to find a group of students with similar interests in which flourishing is made easy. I highly recommend the continuation of education in an establishment such as this. You will not regret it.
