Overall Rating

I really like GRCC. In high school everyone said a community college would be just like going back to high school but that is not the experience I got. The campus is well kept and the people are friendly. We have a very diverse student body so I get to meet a lot of different people. The tuition is very manageable and if you are having trouble with it there is a very helpful financial aid department. I would recommend GRCC to anyone going into college.

I like that they have more than one campus. It was nice that the orientation leaders warned us to look at what campus the classes were located at before we signed up for them.
