Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

The campus of GTCC is amazing, there are great areas to study, work, and hang out with friends. Also the professors that I have had so far are great, they know how to teach so that their students learn the material. To me that is one of the greatest things about GTCC, the way that their professors care about their students. So far one of the most memorable moments that I have had would be when I was in Anthropology class and the professor decided to have an entire class period devoted to showing us skulls. It was a lot of fun to learn the differences in human skulls and other mamals skulls.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

GTCC is a phenomenal school that has allotted me great opportunities. The cost is affordable, teachers are accessible, and every class I took met my educational needs. Due to the small environment I was able to get the help that I needed and co-mingle with fellow classmates as well. Being a Sound Engineer major it took me a little longer than I expected to graduate due to the availability of certain courses. I'm an adult who maintained a job, so there were semesters I could only take 2 classes and being that everything wasn't offer each semester, that also put a delay in my graduation date. Nevertheless I succeeded in graduating with honors and now I'm moving forward to Stetson University in Spring 2014. My I'm extremely excited and look forward to receiving a bachelor's degree in Digital Arts/Sound Engineering. I'm thankful for all the professors who developed me during my time at GTCC. The department chair, professors, and ad-visors of the Entertainment Technology program at GTCC were amusing, encouraging, and exciting. The excitement and challenges in this program push me to always be prepared. I learned that when one has a passion for something they'll do the necessary work to gain knowledge of that very thing. My most memorable moments will forever be the time spent in the studios doing projects for the semester. Many mistakes were made, some grades were disliked, but I still learned and remember the information gain through each mistake and opportunity. To each prospective student, be prepared to advance in your academics no matter what program of study you choose. Strive to excel through every success, failure, and obstacle. Challenges make you better, so don't shy away from them. You won't know everything but that's what your professors are there for, utilize them! Give it all you have and your future will grant many opportunities to you!
