I love this school. You will feel like its a family, so many helpful staff and amazing teachers! This is my second year here at Grossmont College and I love it! I am so happy to have a chance to actually attend this school. Teachers are so helpful and provide you with all the sources you need to become a successful student. I have been around campus so much and noticed many times how staff and even students have patients with everyone and especially with older people. I can not describe how much this school makes me happy. I will graduate this year and transfer to San Diego State University, However, this school will always be my good experience at being in college.

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!
Best bls / acls I've ever had renewal experience. In helping me understand and pass my bls / acls renewal, Mike D, the instructor, implemented creative and thought-provoking ways. We've been up from our seats 90 percent of the time engaging with other students, sharing knowledge, and using the professional and up-to-date equipment we've been given. Affordable, fantastic friendly atmosphere, during the class the teacher played some lofi chill-hop making the entire learning experience fun, close to break-time cafes, easy access to the nearest freeway, elevator access, clean bathrooms and plenty of parking spaces. I strongly recommend the Academy for Life Support!!!
