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.
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!
