I graduated Grossmont in 2009 with an AABrightCommunications
I graduated Grossmont in 2009 with an AA and am now attending and finishing at UCSD. Grossmont College or their sister school Cuyamaca College are excellent place(s) to get vocational training for those who don't want to go to or spend the the money on a 4 year University or to use a gateway to transfer to a 4 year university, like myself. Students, Staff and Faculty is both highly friendly and helpful. Has a very high focus and university like professionalism on both academics and sports. It's also a big and beautiful campus with tons of updated and remodeled facilities that are more than well suited for your educational and athletic (Exercise Science) needs. Also if you're an international student, from what I heard Grossmont has a great ESL (English as Second Language) program. I highly recommend this Junior college/Community college.

I went to the occupational therapy school.Quite BrightOther
I went to the occupational therapy school. They preach professionalism, but in reality there are a bunch of nasty, condescending, unprofessional women in charge of this program. If you have a mind of your own, STAY AWAY. All they want are toadies who suck up to their enormous egos. They only seem to care about the image of their program, not about student learning. One of them frequently attends class smelling of liquor. If any one of the four women in charge of this program gets annoyed by you or your independent thought, they will smile politely, pretend to care, and then begin progressive discipline against you. Eventually, they will just fail you at the end of the program, wasting all the time you spent attempting to get this frivolous degree in a meaningless field. Do not fall for the introductory sales pitch about what a great career OT is. The upcoming Medicare overhaul may make OT a thing of the past.

I decided to attend Grossmont College because ofAverageUndecided
I decided to attend Grossmont College because of the obvious financial savings I would be making (20 bucks a unit!!!), to ease my transition into the world of college academics, and its close proximity to where I live. I came here with the intent to transfer to San Diego State after completing my general education requirements via the transfer admission guarantee, though its safe to say it really isn't a guarantee anymore at all. Knowing how competitive it is to get into State now, if I could go back in time I'd probably have made the attempt to go right in because things have gotten incredibly impacted. But that's besides the point. My overall impression of this school has been incredibly positive. The teachers have mostly been excellent, helpful, and caring. Most of the students here are actually students, with intentions of transferring, which in turn attracts good teacher. The majority of my teachers have taught at State, or at other reputable institutions of higher learning. I have only had one teacher not proficient in english, and another two or so professors who I believed weren't any good, out of three years of attendance. The campus is very nice, and Mission Trails park is a stones throw away. During winter, you can sometimes see snow capped peaks off in the distance, breathtaking! The only issues I've really had were parking (they are currently building a parking structure to alleviate that), and classes filling up to quickly. Many students here must crash to get what they need to take. Other then that, I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to save a few bucks!
