It's a good school to start your career in. If you plan on transferring to another school this is the place to go to in Georgia. It currently changed it's name to Georgia State and partnered with that school . The professors are nice, but outside of class help like tutoring depends on the instructor. The food is basically like any college its OK. The campuses are pretty big and for the most part new. I go to the dunwoody campus and it's about 5-15 minutes away depending on traffic. Parking is not free you have to pay for a pass. The library is great, it's especially big in Dunwoody campus. The student life there is not like State colleges though, you have to put yourself out there because most people who go here are very serious about school because they plan on transferring. Tutoring here is not so great, it's free, and the effort is there. They only use one instructor per day, per subject, and that means there will be 10 students asking for help on different areas of the subject maybe getting 5 minutes of tutoring. For the most part you're on your own like any other school. For student life you must make the effort to join. There is no group fairs or anything, you must email the group instructor. There is a great amount of scholarships offered by the same school and it's super easy to get them when you have a great GPA and essay as well as recommendation letters . Remember, regardless of what school you go to your academic success only depends on you.

It is a pretty good school. There are great teachers that care about you and teaching. They help you be the best and achieve and there is nothing better than that. The population size is also great. There about 20 students or less so the teachers can have that one on one time with the student. The atmosphere is safe and everyone seems to be having a good time.

Great school. Class sizes are small but big enough to make it feel like college. Overall the school is great and small which is something I wanted. I love it so far. However, there aren't many sports to do or things like that, must go to the main campus for activities like that. There probably is greeks on campus but not like out there. Great school, staff, and professors!

Going to a community college automatically makes people assume that I cannot afford a " real education," but at Perimeter I am able to get the same quality education as I would if I attended a university. I am able to take classes where the teacher knows me by name and can take time to explain a concept to me during class if I do not understand. The college is wonderful, but it does have some downsides. Since the college is now apart of Georgia State University, we do not have any sports teams that are just for Perimeter. I don't mind too much, but I do miss being able to go to the softball games that were on the Perimeter campus. Another downside is that they don't have as many class options. For example, for my fall semester I only have one class time option for my chemistry class. I am able to make the time work for me, but it does effect my work schedule. Besides these flaws, the school is a great place to attend.

  11. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    GPC is a great start for anyone beginning their education, but someone who does not like a small campus should not attend GPC. The GPC campuses are small, and easily become crowded with a lot of students. With over crowding comes limited resources such as parking, computers, and a quiet study place. The students who want a college that gives the total college experience should not attend GPC.
