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.

Kudos to GBCC senior surgical technology student, Jessica Jones, (pictured here, middle) who recently participated in the first Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) surgery performed at Elliot Hospital for the safety of a patient. Our GBCC students and grads never fail to impress!
