Gulf Coast State College is a welcoming school with instructors that are always to go above and beyond to help you reach your dreams. I am returning to college after being out of school for twenty years. I was extremely nervous about starting college again. But, I am so glad that I made the decision to attend Gulf Coast State College. Not only do I feel accepted by the staff but also the students. Everyone there has one goal, and that is, to see everyone succeed!
Review Gulf Coast State College
The major difference between traditional classes and online courses is that the work can be done on your time. However, there are submission date deadlines. The student gets to work around not only their school schedule, but also around their life too. The workload can be set up on a schedule, that is what I do. It is very easy to register and you get to pick your professor! The interaction between the other students and the professor has been nothing but great.
Gulf Coast is a great starter school. I enjoyed the club activities with Urban Arts and events organized by SGA. Communication between the students and professors was always encouraged and most of my professors were extraordinarily helpful with any questions I had. The main complaint I had in my two years there was the cafeteria. The prices were steadily raised every semester while I was in attendance, and the cost was never adequate enough to choose the school food over restaurants nearby. I wish in the near future the cafeteria issues are addressed and student opinion is taken into consideration in those regards.
