Y'all lil bad ass kids. I wouldn't be surprised if one of y'all started. You gone wish you had taken advantage of this opportunity. I was there 95-97 and wish I had stayed longer. You can have fun while gaining a trade and getting that money. Just be good in front of staff, especially in the class so you can get your academic bonus. It look good on pay day. I did a lot of shit Gary don't know about...like going to the mudd damn near every night. I even had a key to Automechanics. I had a steady man of course. Just handle yours in stop the dumb shit. Stop being madd cause you're there and wasting time. On the weekends go to some on your friends' hometown and travel. I'm fom Houston and went all the way to Arkansas. STOP TRIPPING AND HAVE FUN YOU LITTLE GREEN HORN!!!

They need to get rid of Gary as it is. Its nothing but "hood rat central"..

Hey Gary student...did you bother asking why they were standing around? Ill assuming your majoring in "fire fighting" so you know EVERYTHING there is to know.

So enlighten us please.

as a former student of gary job corps and a firefighter with the City of Denver the dorm im sure you are referring to is 3100 area as i remember they had just torn them down when i graduated in October of 2009 there could be numerous reasons why they where "standin around" and "not doin there job" one of those reasons could be being small volunteer fire departments from san Marcos kyle buda and gary fire dept they did not have the equipment or the man power such as we do at bigger stations like station 21 here in downtown Denver or san antonio or dallas bigger fire stations have more funding for better equipment also if i remember right isn't GI monday night isnt curfew at 8 you students need to take your future more serious not to down the good students who do but theres alot of negitive people on that campus and make everything harder for those students who are seriously trying to do what they got to do the only reason i made it to graduate instead of terminate was because of a damn good r.a mrs limon so just stay positive and git-r-done

to devil child

i dont think getting rid of gary is going to benefit anyone i agree it is hood rat central but there are alot of people who need it like i did and im not "hood" but maybe if the oa's and the intake people do a better job of screening people and in cpp week 1-4 pinpoint the negative students and give them a leadership position maybe find a top 3 of a plc and have that top 3 mentor them then perhaps it wont be hood rat central for much longer i would rather see these kids from the hoods in a program like jobcorps changing there lifes for the better than to be in prison or worse 6 feet under you would be amazed at how many calls we get when kids 15-23 are either dead or going to prison for negative reasons when they could of went to job corps

Me too! Hopefully, I'm really exited :D I can't wait to make new friends<3 & on top of it all to be making moneyyyy :) once I get started on my career :)
& all I'm hearing about this "hood rat central" 100,000 students currently enrolled doesn't sound like hood rats to me, sound like some people tryin' a get ahead in life.
