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.

Where do I begin ? Garrett College is a great institution to begin your higher education. The class ratios are very reasonable, on-on-one time with professors are available. 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. Campus life is vibrant there are usually a number of different events going on throughout each semester. The school has provided tutoring in the residence halls that has been the best thing all year. The students are very eager to learn, and we value our education. Procrastination may come upon us, but we always complete our assignments. Garrett College is a place where students excel !

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!

Brandon

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

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.
