Shadow Day is a project of Student Outreach Services at GCC. Shadow Day was created to simulate a one-day college experience to high school students. Each semester, approximately 500 high school students participate in this one-day experience.

During the day, students receive the following information:

  • Admissions Process at GCC
  • Financial Aid
  • Transfer Program
  • Academic Programs
  • Co-Curricular Activities

Students also participate in a campus tour and learn about services and programs offered.

After the campus tour, students are paired with a GCC student and attend a college classroom.

During lunch, a panel of GCC students share their experiences and challenges about transitioning from high school to college and from college to a university.

If you would like to have your school participate in a Shadow Day experience, please contact Armineh Gourgian at  (818) 240-1000, ext. 5384.
