Great for online classes! I only took online class from Great basin college but never have I felt left out or never have I regret/dislike taking online classes from Great Basin College. I have seen pictures of their campus and looks very nice and clean. You can always email your professor and they will get back to you! Overall great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

People are very helpful and are willing to help you in any way they can. If you like small schools with class sizes ranging from 3 to 17 students, then I recommend this school. They have various different campuses, but I have only been to one. The professors here really want their student's to succeed with excellent scores and opportunities to help raise them in their career field. Most professors are very passionate about what they teach, trying to make the class more interesting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GBC is an outstanding college. The instructors are always available to assist with a smile. If you are unable to meet with them on their time, it has been my experience that they pick up the phone and call you to ensure all academic needs are met. They are extremely fair and consistent with all forms of communication. Assignments and assessments are returned quickly with productive feedback. There are options on some assignments to "redo" if you feel that it was not your best work and the teachers are happy to review the work, as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great Basin college is not a bad school, as it is a simple community college I feel students get more than could be expected. They have pliable hours for class schedules so students can sign up for classes to work around work schedules or vice-versa.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college is very sturdy, the teachers are practically always available, the library is rather good, and the advisors get to know you since it's not a large college. The campus itself is probably one of the prettiest places in Elko, it's where everyone gets their pictures taken for special events and the campus feels safe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great Basin College is a wonderfully accessible school to new college students, high school seniors, and students looking to transfer an undergraduate degree into a higher program elsewhere. This college has a central campus in Elko, Nevada, but also has satellite locations throughout the state. With most of their classes also being offered online, it is convenient to access a good education. The one major drawback to Great Basin College is that they are moving in an increasingly online-based direction. There are many classes that are not offered live anymore, which could prevent some students from learning as easily. On the other hand, the online setting of Great Basin College allows students from all over to attend, and it makes everything accessible. Despite this, GBC has a great student community that is large enough to provide new resources, friends, and such for all students, but remains close-knit. It is often that when beginning a new class, you may have previous peers learning alongside you. The advisers for many of the programs are great. My program in particular, the Bachelor of Applied Science - Management in Technology (MGTTEC-BAS or BAS-MT), has the best adviser. He remembers every student's name, their situations, questions, strengths, weaknesses, and more. It's great. That being said, I certainly would not have picked any other school to start my higher education career at.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great Basin College is a great place to go to school, especially for being a great distance from any major cities. The faculty seem to really care and try their best to offer certificates and degree programs that will help you earn a career in Elko, or transfer to a University with a solid educational base.

Small, really small. Class size is just right. Online and Interactive classes are the only courses I've taken so far. For me, GBC has proven to be convenient for those who take online, interactive video courses, and for those enrolled in certificate programs. Affordable campus housing is lacking. Library hours are an inconvenience.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are hard working people. Some that are continuing their education while there are others that arre just getting into their field of choice and are looking for a good education to provide a foundation for their life learning.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Whatever you do, don't take the course work lightly. Even if you are doing well in any/all of your courses, make sure you study the suggested time by each instructor. This is the best way for you to excell in your field of study, whether you are to be a nurse, electrician, mechanic, or other professioal.

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

The advice would be to go to a different college/university and stay there until you have the education necessary. This is imperative, as without a decent education, you will struggle throughout your career to prove you are smart enough to do the job competently and effectively, no matter the circumstances that may hinder your professional progress.

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

College is not as scary as people make it out to be. You will meet people who will have an impact that will last your entire life as well as the woman you plan to marry. Dont worry about who has the best car or who has the nicest clothes. In college these things are so small and you will wonder why anyone cared about them in the first place. If you dont get the scholarship you wanted or the class you picked is full dont worry, these things have a way of working themselves out. In the end what matters is you and where you want yourself to be. Anything you want to to is possible with enough dedication so do not put yourself down thinking you can't do it because you can! When first starting out make sure to introduce yourself to your new neighbors. Even if socializing isn't your strong point just saying, "Hello, how are you" will not only make your day better but theirs as well.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I would recomend this school to anyone and everyone. Whether you are just taking your basics and moving to a university or you just want to get your degree at a fair price, GBC is an amazing choice. This college resides in the middle of a mining community so many of their classes are geared twoards trades that are applicable to that type of work however there is also an excelent nursing program as well as vairous social services, computer tech and buisness classes.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would not recommed this college for someone who believes that the more expensive college is, the better the schooling. GBC offers education at an amazing price however some see this as a sign that the education is useless and wil be delivered in a poor manner. Also, GBC is not located in or near a big city so if someone is looking for city life this is not the place for them.
