WHAT I LIKED

Personally, I love the community at GRCC the faculty and staff are always looking out for students to make sure everyone has the best opportunities to succeed and students like myself are really able to connect and collaborate to elevate our college experience and what we get out of it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Because the main campus is in the heart of the city, parking can be a bit tricky/ expensive sometimes.

WHAT I LIKED

Grand Rapids Community College is a great college to start off at if you want to save some money in the long run. After GRCC, I plan on transferring to GVSU in order to pursue my bachelor's degree. I feel so much more comfortable that I chose to start off here because I'm on track to finish college with a moderate to low amount of debt.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think the only negative I may have is that since it's smaller than most colleges the convenient classes are capped at 25 people or sometimes 11-14.
