I attended Long beach City College in california for five years. Glendale's campus is much nicer with many plants and trees. I am an International student, and when I was enrolled I was given alot more information then at my last college. They spent alot of time explaining what was expected from me. They also informed me about alot of useful resources to ensure I got the best from my college experience.

I really enjoy GCC. GCC's campus is very clean. The instructors are very polite and willing to help when needed. If I had to choose one instructor that I like overall, I couldn't. I like all of them. What stood out for me as far as academics was that my credits were transferable, the classes obtainable, and I actually feel like I learned something in each course I am taking. I have a diploma as a PCT that I obtained from another school. But, did not feel knowledgeable to work in a hospital after I graduated. I chose to change course and try a community college. I chose GCC because of the lower expenses for the classes and the academic reviews that I came across were very positive. GCC campus is huge. But, it is easy to get around because we have maps located around campus to help guide you if you can't find your way.
