GGC is a very diverse college.
GGC is out of the ordinary.
GGC is absolutely SUPERB!
Sojerta from Winder, GA
Georgia Gwinnett College is a growing school that gives you the experience of university life without the hefty price tag. The students here are very diverse which helps to showcase many different cultures around campus. New students will find the campus to fit them if they prefer smaller classrooms and smaller walks to classes, many campus events, an assortment of clubs, and school that cares about them.
Molly from Lawrenceville, GA
GGC is a small school, which is good for student who want to have one-to-one time with the professors.
The institution is a great place for students who seek transfer to other schools.
Faculty seems to be committed to the students education and welfare.
Darryl from Lawrenceville, GA
Georgia Gwinnett College, home of the Grizzlies, has been an amazing experience. I originally wanted to go to the big state institutions and universities, but coming here was my blessing in disguise, because with its small beginning came great opportunities. That is why everyday I am thankful my friend told me to put in my application in the middle of yearbook class in my senior year of high school
