Greetings,

Welcome to Glendale Community College as we begin our 2007-2008 academic year! GCC has provided individuals with a variety of quality learning experiences since 1965, and we continue to look forward to serving your learning needs. Our faculty are experts in their fields of study, and they are here to assist you in reaching your learning goals. Our dedicated staff members strive to ensure that you have a satisfying and memorable learning experience.

At GCC, you and more than 32,000 other students will find courses and programs that prepare you to transfer to other colleges and universities, begin your career or advance in your current career, complete your degree or certificate, and enrich your life. You will also have the opportunity to experience a variety of college athletic programs, clubs and organizations, social events, service activities, and activities designed to help you strengthen your leadership skills.

Whether you are interested in opportunities at the GCC Main campus or the GCC North site, I hope that you will find our catalog, webpage and student handbook to be useful tools. All should be helpful in guiding your exploration and discovery of the many resources that are available to you at GCC. In addition, I invite you to speak with hundreds of faculty and staff who are here to contribute to your success.
