What is your overall opinion of this school?

The students of Gavilan College are hardworking individuals that are very serious about their academics; they are the type of crowd that has never had anything handed to them. The school does everything in their power to support the students. The staff are always accessible and passionate about teaching. The college deserves more funding to develop more programs. The programs on campus are close-knit and foster a welcoming, community vibe, especially STEM, MESA, and the Learning Commons. Gavilan College provides excellent education at an affordable price.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school. The class sizes are relatively small and it is not as hard to keep up with teachers. Calm campus with a good enough students' center. Workers in the library are always happy to help any student that is having trouble. Also other students might be willing to help as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since it’s a community college it does not have a lot of the great academic resources available. It’s not a bad school, but it’s not the best. I would much rather go to a school that puts more money into taking care of their teachers, students, and buildings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although Gavilan College is a good community college, after visiting bigger universities and comparing things such as subject matter available you notice a big difference. Especially if you plan to transfer to earn a degree in engineering, you will not be able to take any engineering courses here.

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

Try. Just keep trying, don't settle for a community college because you will keep the same mindset of giving up and it will be very difficult to stop it. Try hard in school and apply for four year universities and live the college life to be a successful business man. Don't forget where you came from. Stay humble but always strive for more. Things may seem to difficult to accomplish bu t with perseverance they can be accomplished. Just don't give up.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

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

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

The most important piece of advice I'd give my high school senior self, would be to just enjoy the experiences of college. I have suffered from an anxiety disorder for many years, and I have a tendency to stress out over little things. College is known to be a time of self-discovery, and unique experiences. I'd tell myself to enjoy those late nights cramming for finals, or those even later nights writing a 15 page research paper due the next day. College is very different from high school, and it is something not everyone gets to experience, so make the most out of it. You are going to miss your high school friends, but join clubs, become involved, and make new ones. If you allow yourself to experience college life, the transition from high school to college will be a lot easier. Let yourself go out on the weekends, or wait last minute to do an assignment and stay up all night. Granted I don't recommend it, but it's one of those things that makes college... college. So overall, I'd tell myself that four years goes by very fast; enjoy it while it lasts.

Past me, I just want to let you know that you should do much better in school. Don't waste your time on little things, get your priorities straight. Also, don't be so awkward; go out and make friends. Please be sure to join as many sports as possible, it will help you out in the long run. Don't worry so much about girls, there will be plenty of time to worry about them later on. Again, back on the topic of school and grades, please make sure to try your best and be honest with yourself; it might not seem like it right now, but it will definitely help you out in the long run. Start looking into colleges and look into what you want to do. Make sure to take classes that whill help you to get where you want to be in live. Another thing, always do what you think is best, and make the right choices. I know you're young now and you just want to live your life, but it isn't worth it. Just a heads up, and maybe not wear such tight pants.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.
