Success Tip

Use a planner or app to keep track of your assignments. There can be a lot to keep track of and having a place to write everything down can be a lifesaver.


Going for walks/hikes with my dog, swimming, reading, playing board games and cards, traveling, spending time outside, and quality time with friends and family.

Favorite Place at GRCC

The new Lakeshore Campus because it offers a centralized location for all Lakeshore students to gather, connect, get resources, and attend class.
