Success Tip

Don't be afraid to ask for help! One step is better than no steps at all.


I love to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy taking dance classes, being in a dance group, and attending dancing social gatherings. I also enjoy kayaking and hammocking during the summer.

Favorite Place at GRCC

My favorite spots on campus are all related to food, coffee, & snacks. I am a strong believer that you can't think on an empty stomach. GRCC has many campus dining spots! My favorite is Sneden Cafe. I, however, would recommend them all since they all have a uniqueness to their specialties and are full of yummy options.
