Grand Rapids Community College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
I started my journey at Grand Rapids Community College hoping to find a career path that would lead to higher paying job than Art School. I spent two years searching for that something special. I took all my general education classes from biology to communications and even gerontology studies! I never met a teacher I didn't like or that wasn't passionate about what they were teaching. I can't imagine I'd get a better education for the price anywhere else. After those first two years I decided culinary school was PRACTICAL! Why shouldn't I get a degree in culinary arts?! I will be eating every day for the rest of my life, my culinary degree would never go to waste and my art is edible. I was right to make the move. I learned even more than I expected, encountered so many more professors extremely passionate about what they do, and I had the most fun going to school. I would highly recommend attending the culinary program at GRCC. It is highly ranked and the best source of culinary education you can get at such a low price. I graduated debt free, talented, and full! Thank you scholarship opportunities and all the amount of "waste" I got to eat!
I had some problems with teachers and repealing my grade. I also had some issues with some online classes. I wish the campus was not so far away in a downtown setting because it is hard to have different classes at different locations.
Grand Rapids Community College has far exceeded my expectations. There is a certain stereotype that is applied to community colleges, and I was weary to begin my education at Grand Rapids Community College, because I didn't think it would be as good as going to a four year university. I am very pleased to say that after starting courses at GRCC my mind was quickly changed. The college is very concerned with each student's degree path and all of the professor I have had, have been wonderful. The class sizes are small, so it is easy to get to know your classmates and your professors on a first name basis. The campus is nicely put together and there is always something going on; so if a student has a break between classes they don't have to be stuck waiting for their next class. I commute to school a few days a week and take the rest of my classes online. This schedule works best for me. The school is very good about offering different classes at different times and places. This goes to show how important each student's education is to them. I have not had a bad experience at GRCC in the two years I have been attending the college. I love the education I am getting and looking forward to graduating with my degree soon. Grand Rapids Community College can offer a something for everyone and I am happy to have started my college journey there.
They were not interested in helping with anything at all. It was very by the book and some instructers would'nt allow questions. The fianacial aide office would not try to find additional funding. The student services were of no help either. The system Grcc had frequently crashed and when it did, the professors didnt work with you when you couldnt sublit your work. I put my whole life in theor hands and the lack of interest they had in anything other then collecting money was disguisting. I wouldnt recommed this school to anyonw who actually cares about obtaining a degree.The professors were overworked and didnt follow office hours. even after going above and beyond the average assignments or putting in my all, they cared more about what they were ordering for lunch then the impact the choices they made put upon my life and my sons. I have never been treated so poorly, by anyone,ever.
