About Grossmont


Welcome to the Spring 2014 Semester

Sunita V. Cooke, Ph.D. - President

We are so pleased that you have chosen Grossmont College to continue your education. Whatever your academic goal—be it a degree for transfer to a four-year college, a degree or certificate in for a new skill in a workforce area, or to reinvigorate your life and to explore the many career options available to you. Our college is a very special place!

In its physical layout, and in the philosophy that guides us, Grossmont College is an academic village. The buildings on our 135-acre campus are arranged, clockwise from Building 10 all the way around the campus back to Building 62, in a quadrangle surrounding the Learning Resource Center Building 70 and a central quad area. The central Learning Resource Center is surrounded by two buildings housing other important services you are likely to utilize during your stay with us. These are the Student Services and Administration Building 10 near the main entrance to campus, and Griffin Center Building 60 a short walk away.

Additionally, you will find people who care about you and are pledged to your success all over the campus. We at Grossmont College take very seriously the motto, “Changing Lives Through Education,” and every administrator, faculty and staff member here is committed to help you achieve your educational goal. If you have a question, are in need of help, or simply want to enjoy a conversation with someone who cares about you, please say hello to any one of us. Our mission is to help you succeed and we are delighted to be a resource for you. Your success is our success.

There are more than 40 clubs on campus, each intended to help you find a group of people with common interests with whom you can share your educational experience. Open to all students, some clubs have ethnic focus, others religious, others sports, others academic, and the list is as varied and diverse as our student population. In addition, the college offers 16 different intercollegiate sports teams for males and females to choose from whether you are a student athlete or simply a Griffin at heart.

The people at Grossmont College respond positively to students who work hard in their classes and participate fully in campus life. We’re delighted you have become part of our educational family!
