I am saving roughly 1/3 of the tuition cost from my prior university. After housing costs and flights, I am spending 1/5 of what I was spending last year.

Thanks to Congressman Chris Pappas for stopping by today to learn about Gather and cook with their wonderful Cooking 4 Community crew. So great to have him see firsthand, the incredible things Gather is doing to provide hot meals for their members, and affordable menu items for our students.

The cart is filling up but there's still time to the Pease 'n Carrots food drive to support Gather. Donations can be dropped off at Gather (here at GBCC Portsmouth) OR any participating workplace on the Pease Tradeport.
The College has helped me develop both personally and professionally. I am so grateful for my Great Bay experience.
