    Campus Safety

    i feel very safe here, they are right down the street from a police station. They also work as campus police, some of the officers attend classes here

    Greek Life

    unknown

    Clubs and Activities

    numerous

    Great for these types of students

    All students

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since its a military college, they have lots of campus activities geared toward the military persons.

    Bang for the buck

    I like the fact that they have loaner books which are added into fees. No searching around on numerous sites for books unless you take online classes.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved and participate. They do have a pool table in the student center. The school does host a few different themed activities.

    Food and Dining

    They have a small student center which serves snacks and some food establishments do come in and students are able to purchase food. There are a few food places within walking distance or a short bus ride.

    Dorm Life

    no dorms exist at this time

    Academic Rigor

    They do have some very good instructors. But like every college there are some that are hit and miss.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take time to research the field ou want to go into. Take advantage of the tutoring and advisory services and computer labs we pay for this in our fees.

    In three sentences

    You can finish a degree plan fast because they are on quarter system. Great as evening and weekend college because they offer a variety of classes. They also have a wide variety of day classes.

    None.

    Clubs here seem really enthusiastic and eager to expand. The behavioral science club is locally involved.

    GMC, Atlanta is great for students who work full time, or are doing joint enrollment while finishing up their final year of high school near by.

    You get your first two years of college out of the way for a little less than 2000 a quarter. Books are rented through the school and are covered by financial aid.

    There are really good local restaurants within walking distance of school. Some even set up in the lounge to sale food items weekly. Also, a variety of clubs throw events where free food is offered.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    Difficultly of courses depends on the subject matter it self, personal ability and the teaching style and work load preferences of the professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    Of course, never procrastinate.

    In three sentences

    The GMC Atlanta campus has friendly and helpful staff, very knowledgeable, diverse and experienced professors. This school is great for getting your feet wet in the collegiate pool, i recommend it to anyone interested in starting their college career but would like to stay local to the [south of] Atlanta area.

    The college offers clubs and other events for students to engage in throughout the week.

    Food and Dining

    At GMC we have a student center. You can bring your own food,but food is not served in this area. You are more than welcomed to bring your own food. Also in the book store they sale meals such as noodles and things to make sandwiches to make.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life students come and leave as they want. Students are allowed to drive their cars on campus. For students who commute back and forth with public transportation, there is a bus stop across the street from campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are easier,but students are still receiving the same education as students at larger universities.

    Tips for prospective students

    Classes are very easy as long as you are putting forth an effort. Because classes are small you have a better connection with professors and classmates.

    In three sentences

    Georgia Military College is a great place to start for students who are unsure about their future. The tuition is not costly so students will not be wasting money on the same general studies in other institutions. Classes are small so if your not good in big crowds this college would be great for you.

    Great junior college to obtain core classes. Will save you money because you do not buy books here. GMC has smaller classes which is beneficial, because you can get more of the one on one with the teacher.
