For me, learning in small class sizes has been a major benefit to my education. GWC’s classrooms allow for great discussions because students have the advantage of getting to know one other rather quickly. I don’t learn in a huge lecture hall with hundreds of other people. I learn from professors who know my name and have experience in the social work field. GWC classes are more personable, so students feel comfortable sharing their experiences. We also bounce ideas off one another. As future social workers, this type of communication is important to our success. We have to be good listeners, participate in discussions and be able to relate to others. I’m confident that those communication skills and the lessons I have learned in the classroom from professors and students will serve me well throughout my social work career. GWC is setting me on the right track.
