Gulf Coast State College Top Questions

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


The school has nothing that would appear as a shocker. It is a mundane and well prepped school, that provides all the essentials. It is great to get started with and then one can go where they please from here.


I wish I had known some people so I could have networked and formed study groups from the beginning. As I progressed I made great friendships and formed rewarding study contacts. "We get by with a little help from our friends" as the Beatles sang. The school provides awesome free help in the Success Center for free math/english tutoring. The library provides free computer time and a quiet place to study or meet with other students to form study groups. The Student Union organizes many activities to encourage friendship and a way to meet other students.


I wish I had known that the student service departments weren't as helpful as I'd like. I would have have gone to a University directly after highschool if I would have known how many problems Gulf Coast would have given me.


That most people here went to highschool together, so good luck making new friends!
