I absolutly love Glendale Community College. I am only a freshman but my advisor is extremely nice and always available. All of my instructors seem to be extremely understanding and flexible. My favorite part is the classes. Honestly I couldn't have asked for a better college.

brianna - 07/20/2020

If I could give advice to incoming students, check the rating of the professors before taking a class. Double check the classes and the requirements you need to take. Always stay updated with the requirements. If you need help don't be afraid to go check out the tutoring centers or even make a friend or two in class to help each other out if needed.

To me college is a little more relaxing and left to your own responsibility of your actions, but before my experence I thought college would be exactly like high school. I would also have tried to find an intrest in something to study for the two years of starting in a community college. The discipline is also something that I would have instilled in the way that I think of college. It is a little harder working and going to college all at the same time trying to make a living, and a career at the same time.

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

    Before arriving to GCC I wish I would have known that parking spots are like gold and once you have a good one you never want to let it go! On the day my very first semester, I spent over a half an hour circling the parking lot and was late for my first class. Today I am in my fourth semester and I have learned to always leave my house an hour before my class starts to ensure that I find a parking spot, that hopefully still leaves me with at least 15 minutes before class.
