Am learning a lot
I absolutely love all of my classes. The professors are very interested in what you do and are excellent in trying to help those who need help. The classes challenge me in a way that high school never did without stressing me out.
Am enjoying being here
I am definitely enjoying it here. GSC is an amazing place for any student to be. It is small enough for you to know everyone and find your way around easily, but large enough for you to be able to lose yourself in the crowd whenever you want to.
Bang for the buck
I am definitely getting my bang for my buck. There are so many awesome activities that have happened throughout my first semesters here.
Tips for prospective students
Throw yourself into the college experience. Try everything that you can and you will make tons of friends like I did. I left my inhibitions behind from high school and I have never regretted that decision. In doing so , I made more friends in two semesters that I had in 4 years of high school.

The campus and Glenville as a whole is notorious for being haunted. The stories of Sis Lynn and Marble Boy give the campus a sort of historic feeling.

Tips for prospective students
Get involved and put your self out there to make friends. They watch to see which students don't get out much and stay in there dorms and they try to help you on your socializing skills. No one is left out. I encourage you to just be yourself and get involved.

Am learning a lot
I absolutely love the professors at this college. They are all friendly and helpful. The professors are very approachable and will help you with anything. They are willing to take time out of their own lives to make sure you succeed.
Am enjoying being here
There is a very friendly atmosphere here on campus at Glenville. It gives you a warm feeling to be apart of a close knit campus.
Bang for the buck
Compared to other colleges, it is not too awfully expensive to attend college here, but nevertheless, so many college students, including myself, have trouble finding the funds to cover it all.
Tips for prospective students
Take a campus tour of Glenville before you make your decision. You will be impressed with the friendliness. Walk right into the department chair of the major that interests you. They will be more than willing to help you out.
