I went to Gateway Community College to doOther
I went to Gateway Community College to do all my prerequisite work prior to acceptance into Dental Hygiene school. I found the professors to be of the utmost high quality, caring and generally helpful. I would highly recommend the school to anyone interested in a two year degree- especially the medical field degrees they offer.

I went to Gateway for a year, andQuite BrightUndecided
I went to Gateway for a year, and am now at a high level engineering school. I now realize how great of an experience that Gateway was.

The students are motivated. Everyone is there for the same reason, to get an education.
Some of the slacker types think that they can get off easy at Gateway because it is a community college, so it "must be easy." These people end up dropping their classes within the first few weeks. The quality of the classes is excellent.

The student body and faculty are both very diverse, and most are very approachable. They love what they're doing.

The computer facilities and labs are much better than expected for a community college. You will always have access to what you need, as well as plenty of quiet places to study.

If you are planning on transferring to one of the state schools or Uconn, as many people do, voice that when you are signing up for classes. They will help you pick out classes that will count for transfer credit, or classes which are prerequisites to those which do. The school that I am at now ended up taking all the credits for my humanities courses.

It is also cheap to go here. You get the course quality of the state schools, but without the price.If you are considering this school, then just go for it, you will not be disappointed.

There isn't much to brag about a communityAverageEducation
There isn't much to brag about a community college, a collage is a collage and I think that gateway is a great collage it is well afordable and is close by to me and I think that is great. I will be graduating with my associates degree in early childhood education in two more semesters and this is only my second year. There is not to many people no one bothers you and you can get what you need to get done in any other college. I am looking forward to attend SCSU in the spring of 2005.
