My experience at Grossmont College so far has been a positive one. The campus itself, is beautiful and well taken care of on a daily basis. Safety on the campus is not even a second thought, and the areas surrounding the campus are quiet suburbs. The school encourages positive student life by promoting clubs, events and uses of the programs available to the students. Professors vary, some are prepared, and some are not so much. Campus food and rec area is colorfully decorated, has a great variaties of foods, and large places for students to eat, study and socialize and the diversity on the campus is positive . Overall, Grossmont is a gorgeous campus that I feel makes it easy for community college students to change and grow!

The professors are excellent! I would like to see the quality of the food improve, however. Also, there is always something going on in the center of the college, which keeps things lively, which is especially important right when the semester gets stressful!
I appreciate all the professor's professionalism. They've all exemplified the standards that Grossmont has to offer. My only issue is my wish for their treatment of the mentally ill to improve. It's not so much the teachers who are at fault, but rather the training that they have no received. There is a misunderstanding between teachers and mentally ill students who struggle with performing simple tasks such as being in class. However, there is a wonderful sense of empathy and hope of understanding that the teachers have. They want to understand, they want to learn, they just lack the training and experience.
