Overall this is a great school! Most of the facility contributed to my success while attending. The only reason I am giving three stars is because the housing situation. During COVID-19 the female to male ratio on the campus was very different. So I do not recommend living on campus as a young woman at this time. I also feel I have experienced discrimination as a woman by the RA Life Manager and I am not the only one to attest to this, other female students who work closely with the RA Life Manager said they too have felt uncomfortable about how he has handled some situations. I have heard opinions from male students also agreeing to the fact that the RA Life Manager can be "sexist". So if you are sending your daughter off to college I would just be mindful of this.

The college's help centers are always dependable students use them to their advantages. Most professors are very flexible with office hours they are available to help.

It's a great school. The professors help you if you ask; with it being such a small college you really get that one-on-one time with your professors. They are here to see/help you succeed in your two years. It's in a very rural area so having a car is extremely recommended!
It is overall a good college. 20 - 25 students per class. Instructors willing to go the extra mile for students that are truly willing to put forth the effort and a great atmosphere all around. Garrett College offers plenty of resources that any student has access to

Through college, I have learned much about myself as a person. So often, the worlds of higher education are accused of making their students conform to a certain way of thinking. While this exists in any experience throughout life, I wouldn't find this to especially be the case with higher learning. What I have found is that college has taught me speak for myself. I have learned to express what I feel with tact and, in the right circumstances, without inhibition. College provides students with a safe, stable environment for them to test their interests, and I have found this has helped me to develop creatively. So college has been a value for me to attend because an intellectual and adventurous side of myself has been discovered that might otherwise go unnoticed. College has not given me a distaste for education, but has instead helped me realize and cherish the importance of knowledge. Through mentors in colloege, I plan on pursuing my dreams and aspirations to the fullest.
It is the only college in my area. It is best known for letting Garrett County residents go to college free for two years.
It has a rural basis, yet they utilize this location as a benefit--offering unique degree programs that cater to unique interests of students who find themselves here.
The staff are ready and waiting to help the excelling students to achieve at a high level. I have been offered a plethera of opportunities, by professors, to take my learning and personal growth to the next level. This is all made possible by the small and personal classes.
I have had several bad experiences while being here. Some of the administration seems to not want to help students as much as they should. I have dealt wit alot of confusion there and thats why I would like to go elsewhere now.
Someone who has an interest in the outdoors and wants to escape the confines of modern cities. This school offers unique oppertunities for development and learning that should interest students who want a college experience that is small and hands on.
The level of academic expectancy is a little below my level. I would personally like to be pushed to or beyond the limits of my personal abilities in order to have maximum intellectual growth. Most of the courses at Garrett College did not present themselves as a great challenge to me.
