I don't think that the facilities are not the best and sometimes the teachers aren't that great, I think that Gavilan College has been a good fit for me so far. Gavilan still is clean and fostered a good learning environment, especially since classes are not relatively large. As long as I pull my weight, I have grown so much from my experience here. I also enjoy the small but beautiful rural campus, which really helps make me feel safe and at home.
Overall, Gavilan is a great community college. Most of my teachers were very helpful and involved with the students. They were always there when I needed them. The class sizes at Gavilan are usually under forty as well, so the teachers actually get to know you. While Gavilan is in a rural area, it's quite beautiful with great weather. It's a lot of fun to see turkeys, squirrels, and quails among other animals run around the lush mountain campus. At Gavilan the community is great. There are plenty of clubs and the ASB is always thinking of something fun to do. The counselors are helpful, and the school provides services of all kinds, such as a health office, food pantry, veteran's services, plenty of free tutoring, and disabled student's services. My one complaint would be that the buildings are old. However, the county recently passed a measure giving a substantial amount of money to Gavilan to update their buildings! After four semesters at Gavilan, I really love it. That whole time I only had a problem with one teacher, and I was able to resolve it easily. I highly recommend Gavilan for anyone who wants to go a community college where they truly care about their student's needs.
Gavilan college is small but active. The campus is pretty as well there’s a creek. I have been there several times and each time, everyone is friendly. The teachers are always available and stores are everywhere in Gilroy. I was once at GECA campus but I will return back to the Gav campus hopefully.
My overall opinion of this Junior College is that it really is an excellent school to attend if you would like to earn an Associates degree or save a tremendous amount of money when transferring to a 4 year institution like myself. I highly recommend this two year college to anyone who wishes to transfer to another school or complete their general education.

As a senior, I was very hesitant to go to a community college since all of my friends were going to four year universities, but if I could go back in time to talk to myself; I would reassure myself that going to community college is the best decision. I would tell myself that I would make new friends, the educational opportunities would be just as good as any four year school, and I would have a great opportunity to adjust to college life. I would give myself advice to look to the future, apply for as many scholarships as I could, and at times, to just sit back and enjoy the college life because it passes by you fast! That being said, I would point out that most of my friends who were to attend four year schools would fall into the partying lifestyle and would end up dropping out of college. I think I would easily be able to convince myself to go to Gavilan Community College.
My classmates are much different from each other, as well as myself; there are different age groups, different ethnic backgrounds, different personalities, different personal views.
a college that is truley community based; eager to teach and much as the students are earger to learn.
Unlike most other community colleges, Gavilan is located in the beautiful Gavilan foothills with a picturesque view of Gilroy and Hollister. The campus is one of the most beautiful of any that I have seen. The running trail runs through the hills offering breathtaking views of Gilroy, the campus below, and the distant mountains. Aside from the beauty, Gavilan is a very convenient drive from anywhere in Gilroy (around 10 mins from the farthest point) and it offers everything needed to move on to a four year university or obtain an associate's degree.
The location of Gavilan is one of the best aspects of it. It is conveniently located in Gilroy and has sattelite campsites in near-by towns. This is a perfect college for the student that didn't do so great in High School or isn't sure they are ready for a UC or CSU. The programs at Gavilan are great and getting better. There are many really talented professors who are genuinely interested in the progression of the student and the school as a whole.
I wish I would have known that just consistent effort would make me be very successful here. To not give up when the going gets tough. To push through difficult situations and things will be done much easier
This school is open to anyone who wants to pursue their degree but not ready for a university. It can also be for someone who isn't sure of what they want to study yet. It can be for anyone, whether it be to get general education, or to transfer. I know that going there helped me to figure out what I want to do, and helped me to get on the right track.
Gavilan is a school that can accomodate anyone who aspires to obtain an associates degree or transfer. This college is very diverse and inclusive. There are many clubs on campus to get involved in regardless of your pursuit of career.
