I came to GSC with two Associate in Science degrees already. I had always been interested in pursuing my Bachelor's degree, but wasn't sure what to study, or how to go about it. I had looked into GSC a couple of years before I eventually started - not ready to commit at that point. What I had liked about GSC was that it focusesd on adult college classes. Another advantage here is that GSC offers evening college classes and weekend college classes.
I knew I was a bright person and a good student, but wasn't sure how returning to school as an adult would be. I can tell you I had a great time!
I found that taking classes with all adults was a very different experience than when I was a younger student. A big difference was that adult learners like to talk (a lot) and share their experiences (also a lot)! Occasionally there were students who were more quiet or shy, but on the whole I found that students typically were usually keen on class discussions. I also found that while most adult students are busy juggling jobs, kids, multiple schedules, bills, etc., etc., etc., (the list goes on and on) the adult learners at Granite State were very dedicated students.
I had the opportunity to take a variety of Behavioral Science Classes. I don't think there was ever a day that I wasn't happy to go to class (except maybe my very first class - lots of butterflies). The sense of accomplishment with each paper, test, or presentation was fantastic. Of course some classes appealed to me more than others, but I enjoyed them all! I am eager to share some of my stories with you and happy to be involved with Granite State College again.
