Cameron - 03/12/2024

You will be able to get your Associate's Degree easily, if you put the right amount of time and effort into it. I found that most professors are great, responsive, and want to help you learn. However, you must be prepared for potential errors from Germanna, but I don't think it is common. For example, they trashed my exam papers and I was forced to retake it.

Brianna - 02/04/2020

I love Germanna Community College I go to the one in Locust Grove and it is definitely my college of pick for a community college. I went to a larger community college for a semester but ended up coming back to Germanna because I like the smaller size and the friendly atmosphere. The teachers I've had are awesome and are there to help you succeed.

Emily - 09/19/2019

Germanna is an okay school for the price. It is community college, you get what you pay for. There are a few common areas so that is nice but most are a little loud. Most the instructors I have met are nice but I have had a few not-so nice ones as well that made me not feel welcome.

Jasmine - 08/26/2019

I cannot personally speak about the experiences on campus due to my enrollment in online academics. Albeit I can the online courses I attend are very immersed in the topic at hand, and the set up of the curriculum makes it easily accessible and efficient to use. In addition, the professors are very involved in the students academic career, and will provide any resources necessary to fulfill their goals. The online classroom uses a variety of materials and tools that students may access in order to assists them in their courses. Overall the online classes provided by Germanna Community College are not only exceptional and diverse, but also presents one with the same opportunities as a four year university.

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

    Given the chance to go back to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would let myself know some things to expect in college and to take my grades more seriously therefore making it easier for me to get accepted to college. I would tell myself to not worry about impressing my peers, but to impress the teachers with better study habbits and a progressive GPA. Though, I would not advise myself to change anything about my social personality and my life expectations. All my life I have have long term goals of becoming a lawyer and I knew that I had to getinto college if that could at all be possible. Although I did not know where to start, I was persistant enough to find out on my own. I am now in a two year college with the highest GPA I have ever had. Given the chance to tell myself a little about what to expect probably would.nt prepare me more than I am now, but the change my studying habbits in high school would have helped me in having more options and choices in preparing for college.

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

    Since I was one of the few people in my family to go to college I didn?t know much about the college when I started out. I was really confused about the online system that is used by professors at my school to communicate with the students. However what I really wished I had known more about before I came to college is the financial aid system. My advice to new college students know about the online programs your school uses and learn as much about financial aid as possible.

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

    The worst thing about Germanna Community College isn't exactly the school itself. I find that the only thing i cannot stand about attending this school, is being in the same classes with people who dont care about their education. College is not something you are forced to do, it is an option. It's for your own benefit. If you are going to come to class and waste not only your time, but your professor and classmates time as well, then save your money and stay home.

    While I work and don't have much time for groups, the best way to I've found to connect with people is to find others who care about what they're doing just as much as you are, and with similar goals and aspirations. Taking classes within my major and meeting with people has allowed me to make fast friends with some of the smartest people I know. There is nothing better than coming to school and not feeling alone, and sharing the same struggles and interests with people who just get you.
