Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Grossmont College is a great community 2-year school located centrally in San Diego County. Many of the buildings and grounds have been revamped, creating an incredible campus and safe environment. I would suggest getting in quickly with a counselor, as appointments are often hard to get, but when you do, they are extremely helpful for setting up your educational plan and goals. As a return to school "super sophomore" I work in addition to going to school, and have had fair luck in finding my necessary classes that work around my schedule. Be active in your academics, using the resources provided by Grossmont's admissions and counselors and you'll be fine!
