Anthony - 04/13/2024

I believe that Grays Harbor College is a great start to an academic career. However, it is not much more than a stepping stone. Housing prices in the area are not very affordable either, making moving to this college from afar seem inconceivable. Overall though, if you are here for the right reasons, you will find success.

Emma - 03/15/2023

I think that Grays Harbor is a very nice, calm, and welcoming environment. There are always lots of different activities to do throughout the year with anyone and everyone found at GHC. The age range is quite large, but it's still feels like a very tight knit community of people. Teachers care deeply about each of their student's grades and really want every student to succeed in their goals. GHC has lots of classes, but not very diverse - it's a bit limited in selection. But since GHC is in Aberdeen, Washington which is known for the forests and logging, they have a forestry and nursing bachelor's degrees.

Aubrey - 09/14/2022

I think that it's a pretty good college to go to. The campus is nice and it is all affordable. Another thing that is cool about it is that you have pretty much a 100% chance of getting in. And another thing that is cool is that since I am in running start this was a college that was available for me and I am able to get an associate's Degree in this college by the time I graduate high school which is next year-June 2024.

Emily - 06/23/2020

I have only been to grays harbor, but I think it’s great! The students all seem equal and the professors are very helpful. I was very impressed this year by how fast they figured out how they were going to handle this how pandemic. Although some professors had troubles with the switch to online classes everything worked out just fine.

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

    If i could give advice to myself back when I was a high school senior, I would definately have to emphasize on how much hard work it takes to be a college student. Yes, high school involved some hard work and a lot of time spent on assignments, but college is on another level. Attendance is one of the most important aspects of college, as you gain so much more from an in person lecture than from borrowing another students notes. I would also tell myself to make sure that education is one of my top priorites, as it is going to help me begin my career.

    There are a lot of things that I like about my school, but i would have to say that the best thing is either the super nice people that work and attend Grays Harbor College or the layout of the campus. The people make it a place that I want to go to everyday and I do not mind that i will also have to do school work when I get here. The campus makes it really easy to get to my classes, where it is pretty much impossible to be late.
