Anjelika Marin - 03/19/2023

My overall opinion of Grossmont college is that it's great for first-time college students. They offer a variety of opportunities to be able to attend school for free such as Financial Aid, the California promise grant (Free tuition for 2 years), scholarships, and more. This college is great for students who want to pursue health/medical-related careers such as nursing, respiratory therapy, cardiovascular technology, occupational therapy assistant, and more. For nursing, they offer accelerated programs that allow you to have a jump-start. They have very proactive staff members in all departments when it comes to answering any inquiries you may have.


This is a community college and I would say it's a pretty good one. It is affordable, even if you are only working part-time. I feel like the class sizes are decent, if you participate you will be heard. All professors I have had in the past three years have had office hours and will work with you. I genuinely feel cared for by most professors. The only downside is that it IS a community college, so you have a lot of students who don't really care and it is easy to fall into that habit. Do your work and show up to class and you will be fine!


Grossmont college is an excellent learning environment, with excellent faculty and professional professors. My education has been greater at this community college than when I attended university. Cheaper than a state university- I would recommend it to any prospective student!


I feel safe there, the professors' way of teaching may not always be favorable to some students but I have never encountered any issues of that sort. The faculty staff are motivating and cheerful people. The counseling is great, thanks to their help, I will be able to graduate sooner than anticipated. A large variety of classes offered and the library is a perfect place for studying. I cannot wait for this upcoming fall. I already finished all of my GE courses therefore I will be starting to take courses related to my major.

    Many times when I let people know I attend a community college and not a four year university, they tend to judge it as less worthy.

  12. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    I believe the kind of person that should not attend this school, are individuals who do not apply themselves to strive for the best. There are not enough teachers, classrooms, or seats available to people who do not want to be there and learn. Too many students who want to move forward in their lives and careers are denied the opportunity; due to the people who do not take school seriously. Therefore, the people who do not try at school, should not attend this school.

  15. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The stereotype I think is variety in its diversity in being able to have different types of people go to this college. This is accurate because there are people like me who are disabled but have the resources to get extra help in classes. There are people from other states, other countries, different races, and personal preferences. My classes always have varied types of people to encourage diversity and let anyone have a chance at an education. The right thing is to have diversity not because its required but because its morally right and more open minded about the world.
