This is the worst school I have ever attended. I would not encourage anyone to attend this school . I turned in my final paper and magically my paper disappears but my name was in the sign in paper. Now I'm stuck with a d and having to take the class over . This school is unprofessional and rude beside my grade. I attended this school because it was closer to my house and I tried to ignore the rudeness but I can't any longer. Last semester was my first semester at gwinnett tech and when I asked questions about my program and classes the women were so rude as if you were bothering them to do their job. On top of that while starting the next semester I received an email telling me they wanted to to take 1101 when they told me in the beginning I didn't have to take the class! This school is full of crap stay away from it unless you want to be another check for them

The teachers here are great and really care about their students learning the required material. They teach their classes in a way that ables the student to take it with them, instead of just trying to pass and get out. The staff will go above and beyond to help you in any way needed whether it be advisement, financial aid, tutoring or really anything. Security here is also great, the officers circle around capus all the time and will offer help if they see that it is needed. They are not afraid to get out of their cars and walk around either. I am an older person trying to catch up with the younger generation at this college and I am not alone. There are many people here of all ages and nationalities and everyone seems to fit in rather well. Gwinnett Tech offers many clubs and activities for those who are interested and have time, otherwise they have short term activities available for those who are more time sensitive but still like to be involved. Over all Gwinnett Tech is a great place to Learn and further one's education.
