Grossmont College Reviews
Rating 3.78 out of 5 1,220 reviews
For the most part I found the online experience accommodating. Although the first semester online was very disorienting, that was to be expected. I was able to perform really well the second semester online.
Grossmont is a very nice campus, although it might not be that important a factor, it is rather pretty to just walk around. Academically you'll find a lot of support, including tutoring and a very well maintained library. I also found the counselors very helpful.
The professors were very helpful when it came time to switch to Online with the pandemic. They were very understanding on the switch and willing to work with any issue that came up. They were in contact with every student and would respond within 24 hours with emails. Office hours were always available and they would even be open to meeting outside of office hours if it worked better for the student.
Overall the experience was amazing! All of the professors were very helpful and always there when I needed assistance. The campus and those on it were very welcoming and helpful when needed.
I took all of my classes online and professors have been very helpful. However, in person classes would have been so much more sufficient in the sense that it is much easier having a set schedule and getting up at a certain time.
Personally, as a sophomore and transfer student at Grossmont, I really enjoyed my experience on campus. I think the professors are very good and all share the same goal to help the students learn and succeed. The reason I gave the school a 4/5 rating is that I feel like the diversity on campus is not the greatest. It took me a while to feel comfortable as my ethnicity was not that common for me to notice. But other than that I really enjoyed my experience at Grossmont and would highly recommend other students to enroll there.
Lat semester after having transitioned from in-person to online, It was one of the biggest changes I had made but I feel like the school provided and extended so many resources and deadlines so that students would not have to feel the pressure of having to have an extra burden at home. But instead continuing to make the online environments very safe and enjoyable.
Big and beautiful campus with great online and on-campus classes. Big variety of majors, friendly environment and accesible food and resources.
Teachers do pay attention to students and provide the adequate material to prevent hard times. Activities and material seen in class or uploaded files stay relevant to the subjects.
I have taken a lot of online classes and they are all really good! All of the teachers really know what they are doing.
I have had many challenging classes here, but I have had many interesting classes here too and great. The campus is big and has many great opportunities for students.
I live very close to this college and I like it. The professors can be somewhat tough sometimes depending on the subject, but usually they are great at what they do. The staff is very helpful too.
I would say it is a great starter college to transfer to a University. There are many professors there that want to see you succeed.
The transition from physical classes to becoming online classes was rather difficult in my opinion. It was abrupt and eventually inevitable for those that didn't want this to happen, especially in the middle of the semester. However, over time the online environment got smoother as professors started to get used to this temporary environment. It can be difficult at first, but it got better, even though we are in a time where we are confined in our own homes until it is over. We have to make the best of it which we currently are at the present moment. Overall, the online learning experience can rough around the edges, but over time it will smoothen out.
It was hard at first. Trying to fit in a new setting or area, especially when my high school was in Rancho San Diego. So a bit of milage between Grossmont College and Valhalla High School. Anyway, as time progressed, I got used to the new environment and got more comfortable. Though it may be stressful at times, you have to press on and improve upon your mistakes. It's all about trial and error. Overall, Grossmont College is a nice, laid back college that has the courses you need to get your GED and hopefully an ADT (Associates Degree for Transfer).
All the teachers are amazing, they are patient and understanding. They want all their students to pass and succeed in class.
With the start of covid and all classes being online the teachers have been extremely understanding and have plenty of resources for those struggling.
