CGCC is a very friendly school. "Most of the emplyees are very friendly and do all they can to help students succeed. From the time you walk into the door to admisions and records, the staff try their best to help out the newly arrived students. Some staff members can be hard to talk to, but as any other place, there are members who are not able to separate personal life from work. This is understandable, and the rest of the staff makes the student's life easier and manageable.
