What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Rapids Community College is the best thing that has ever happened to me! I am so blessed to be able to attend a school that is so devoted to the success of their students. The college offers an amazing education with affordable classes with amazing faculty. I never thought too much of this college before going here but now I can't say enough good things about GRCC, they are so supportive of their students in all aspects. I would encourage anyone from any walk of life to attend GRCC and experience all that they have to offer. I owe GRCC a big thank you for helping to change my life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I highly reccomend for students who plan on going to a 4-Year university, take their general education classes here. Unfortunately, the college does not host housing. Grand Rapids Community College is incredibly diverse in the programs taught and demographics of student life. I admire the college's push for political awareness and social equality or respect amongst genders, sexual identities, race, social class, and program choice. The college provides free counseling for its students and the faculty members honor their commitment to helping their students. The college encourages its students to transfer to 4-Year schools and finish their degrees. I hope to see this continuation of growth in diversity and passion to teach individuals at Grand Rapids Community College in the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Based on what I experience, I think Grand Rapids Community College is one the best schools this state has to offer. The reason why I would say that is because of what programs it has include the one where I get to take a look at college life with some of my classmates and one of the teachers from my school. This summer seems to be pretty cool and fun since GRCC gives me a class that helps me get early college credit that I deserve. I also get a lot of help from some of staff members to enhance my math skills which could boost my SAT scores to a pretty good score. I also get to go on tours to different colleges to see how they operate and what requirements I need to enter them and get the degree that I deserve. Like I said earlier, some of staff members from my school happens to work here and she was the one who recommended me into this program. Another reason why I think GRCC is a great school is because my dad used to go here. I never knew he had ever went there and after I found out, I was pretty excited and impressed. So I figure I should go there to help learn how to grow and how to mature even more. There’s also another reason this is the best school in West Michigan. It’s because it offers high school students early college classes so that they can earn credits even before they graduate. I think this year and the next should get interesting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is very basic for a community college. I however had a pretty bad experience with a professor, forcing me to go through the whole fiasco of dropping the class. If you get the right professor then it's a pretty good experience, but it definitely isn't anything fancy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really liked that the school is very inexpensive and affordable with grants received. I would say I payed $2000 for the two years I went there to take my general education requirements. Also, I found that the social atmosphere there was great- people were very friendly. I recommend Grand Rapids Community College to prospective college students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Rapids Community College is a great school too attend your first couple years out of high school. You save a ton of money on your Gen Eds, classes are not too big, people are way more friendly. The atmosphere is great, I feel welcomed, the professors are great when you need. If I need assistance with anything I can find it super quick and easy. My first year outside of high school I went to GRCC loved every minute of it, enjoyed classes, everything was nice. My second year I went to GV I regret not staying another year at Cc, but I learned my lesson and I am back at CC. I am excited to start back and save money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What I like most about Grand Rapids Community College is the professors. Although there are some that do poorly at teaching their designated classes, the majority of professors care about their students. They are professional at delivering their lectures, and they also try to make the classroom environment a comfortable and engaging place to be in. The classes themselves are compact. On a different note, two aspects of the college that could be changed are the campus and security. In my opinion, it is not as lively or eye-catching as other college campuses. The panhandlers and lobbyists both significantly worsen the situation. As far as safety goes, there should be higher security, since anybody in Grand Rapids can easily walk onto campus grounds with a concealed weapon and hurt a student. Overall, GRCC is considered "average" to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GRCC is a great college for students that are looking to save money and still get a great education. If you are looking for a variety of sports activities, clubs and parties I'd suggest going to a four year university where there are on campus housing and recreational teams you can join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Rapids Community College is a wonderful school to start at if you are unsure what you want to study or where you want to go or even if you feel you aren't ready to attend a four year. It's easy to get in to, and scheduling is easy since courses are offered on all days at most times and some even online. Also you can't beat the price; its substantially cheaper than a four year so you aren't wasting money at a school when you don't know what you'll be studying. Being directly downtown Grand Rapids provides many opportunities for food and coffee in between class, along with great on campus food.
