GGC understands that college graduates need more than solid academic skills to succeed. That’s why it targets whole student development, offering opportunities for continuous learning through academic, social and civic activities that build on classroom material.
Community service projects, internships and campus activities allow students to explore their interests and put theory into practice as well as have a good time.
Take the student organizations. Student-founded and student-led, clubs in biology, business, psychology, student government and more let students hone their leadership and teamwork skills – and see classroom lessons come to life.
The result? Students who are creative, innovative problem-solvers, ready to apply their academic knowledge in the workforce, their local communities and the world at large. GGC students are unafraid to go wherever their dreams will take them.

The costs of accepting material donations in the U.S. and then shipping them to the intended country would result in a net loss of money and resources for U.S. Fund for UNICEF that could be better directed toward existing programs.
