Academic Support and Opportunities

Advisement

We believe student advisement is about being part of a community of friends, intellectuals, peers and mentors who are all here to help you succeed. That is why each and every student is assigned a personal mentor.

To learn your mentor, log in to Banner and click "Student and Financial Aid." Select "View Student Record," then click "Student Information." Your mentor is listed as your primary advisor.

Army ROTC

The GGC Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) focuses on training and developing future leaders. ROTC classes and field training exercises provide you with the tools and experience needed to succeed in any competitive environment. The curriculum covers management, ethics, tactics, law, military history and army culture.
