I feel like i've definitely had some ups and downs at this school. It was bad when I first started, but then i got used to my surroundings and made friends, and it wasn't as hard anymore. I've had bad teachers, and i've had great teachers. I've had alot of people help me, and i'm grateful for that. But I've always had trouble in the beginning of my semesters with financial aid. Then, almost everyone in the library are all stuck up. They're rude. I've been to this school for 5 years and i'm still terrified to go in there to get books, not to mention ask them any questions, because they treat you like you're mentally challenged. Which i am, but I try not to let it get in the way too much. I feel like... i have mixed emotions of this school. But to be completely honest, I feel like i would have some kind of trouble with any school i've gone to. if i wrote out all the stories of the bad and good, this essay would become a book. I feel like i've had more bad experiences, but the brain makes you remember mostly bad over good anyway. The school overall isn't bad. There are alot of great people there.

from the beginning to the end of my journey at gateway i enjoyed my classes , my new friends and overall my time there . the people , staff and teachers are really cool and most of all everyone is easy going i would recommend gateway because you work at your own pace , the professors are understanding of situations in life and the school is down town so you can get into a lot when waiting for classes to begin .overall its a great school

Love it. I have went to visit before I actually wanted to start there. There is security all around for protection. We have our area for parking. And academic advisors are always available. They are available when you come and and sit and also email.

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

    As a high school senior, I was not prepared for the college environment. Although I was academically successful in high school, I was not emotionally ready for college. As a result, it took many failures and many years before I was truly ready to be a student. If I could go back in time, I might tell myself to delay going to college; however, I would not. Each failure was a crucial part of the journey I am on. If I had not left my first (and second) schools, I never would have attended the community college where I found supportive professor and peers, and where I found my love of literature. However, I would tell my younger self that college is not about GPAs or class ranks, which are the status markers of high school. Instead, it is about finding truth. The true story of the American Revolution (the version we never learned as fourteen year olds), how Newton's Laws truly work, and, how, in the words of the immortal Bard, "This above all: to thine own self be true." More than any mere path to a single career, college is a discovery of truth.

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    At Gateway Community College, there are absolutely brilliant professors. I have often wondered why they are teaching at such a small school, but I consider myself blessed to be able to benefit from their enthusiasm and incredible breadth and depth of knowlege. For example, my history professor has name-dropped both Morte D'Arthur and William Blake during class. I have never know a history professor that loved Blake! My literature professor has an expansive knowlege of his field, and is constantly quoting various writers, from Montaigne to Shakespeare. How can one not learn in such an enthused environment?

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about Gateway Community College is that it is only a community college; an associate's degree is the farthest one can go. I am transferring to a four year university in the upcoming semester, and I am already mourning leaving such an amazing school. Nearly every acquaintance of mine who has transferred from Gateway has said the same thing; they all wish they could earn a bachelor's degree there. I am indebted to Gateway from giving me a solid start in my undergradute education, but I will miss it sorely.
