This has been my first semester at Grossmont college. The campus is beautiful, clean and has many events and resources posted all over. The front office has flyers for tons of important information and events that college students should really look at. The library is big with a computer center for everyone to check their grades and catch up on homework. They also offer free tutoring that is super easy to sign up for and schedule! I love all of my professors so far and it seems like the school actually cares about its students and their success. The diversity on campus is awesome and you hear stories from people all over the world coming to school here. Its always interesting hearing first-hand how things are done in other countries. Cant wait for the more semesters to come at this campus!

The professors are great! I would say high ratings on the course subjects taught. However, they have a horrible counseling/financial aid department. The counselors are not well trained. You get more help through a student ran peer system or through other resources, such as the office that tests you for learning disabilities. A man I met there is very sensitive to your needs and guides you with real people referrals that he trusts. They do have great talks there though. The food is pricey. I question how they use their money there... bathrooms are almost always dirty and smell.
The campus is small, very clean, its nestled up next to a mountain and Mission Trails park, there is lots of parking and its just a short ride to get to a few different fast food places. Its about 20 minutes away from downtown San Diego and the beaches. The school is small enough to where you can make friends easily and see them often, but big enough to where you can meet your daily step count if classes are placed far enough apart. The professors I've had so far have been awesome! It's a very god place to get your general education and start your degree.
