How has GGC helped prepare you for where you are today?
GGC afforded me an opportunity to start my career with advice, knowledge, hands-on experience and mentorship from professors. The professors also provided extra help for students like myself who had trouble learning and needed that extra boost. In addition to all of that, GGC provided a world-class library and tutoring options that I used daily and would not have been where I am today without.

Favorite memory about GGC: My favorite memory was actually spent in the Wellness and Recreation Center with one of my favorite faculty members, Carl. I learned about programming all day, but Carl and the students who often played in the gym taught me about life. He was, in a way, a mentor to me, and he never knew it. I admired the faculty for that reason. They gave and gave and never thought twice or even noticed how much they were giving. That is why I feel so compelled to do the same for my brethren. The students at GGC will always have a mentor/friend in me.
