If a course interests you which is not currently being offered please email me at ed.nickel (at) and let me know so I can try to get it on the next semester's schedule. Also, email me with suggestions for courses you would like to see GBC offer which are not listed. You may call me at 753-2241 (my office phone with voice mail) or meet with me during my office hours. I hope this site is useful to you.
