Greendale Community College (GCC) is an open-admissions college located Greendale County, Colorado. Founded back in 1974 by Russell Borchert, it is best known for having amongst its alumni the character actor Luis Guzman. While not as prestigious an academic institution as its rival City College, it's an affordable school which has over 80 different fields of study. The current Dean is Craig Pelton and its mascot is the "Greendale Human Being". The school's first appearance was in the Season One episode Pilot.



Greendale will blow your mind and your body! Won't you get to know us better?

Patrick Isakson, "The 5 As"

Greendale was originally an animal rendering plant before the founder (and first Dean ) Russell Borchert turned it into the campus it is today. During the 90's, Dean Bigley ran the school, creating a memorable school commercial which is still sampled in Greendale's current commercial. Under its current administration, headed by Dean Craig Pelton, several new initiatives were instituted to make the school more attractive to prospective students. This included the "No More than 64" incentive in 2008 and the creation of a hedge fund in 2010 to have fewer accidents. The Dean has also promoted ties to their most famous alumni, character-actor Luis Guzman, by dedicating a statue in his honor that is proudly displayed on the campus quad. Greendale has also tried to stay more current by replacing their old school mascot the "Greendale Grizzly" with a more modern representation of the student body, the "Greendale Human Being".  Also in 2010 the school logo was updated. A contest was held for the new logo and the winner was submitted anonymously. The new symbol is meant to represent the school as a crossroads for the students which lead them onto other paths in their lives.

Greendale Air Conditioning Repair SchoolEdit

(See main article: Greendale Air Conditioning Repair School) An annex to Greendale Community College, the Air Conditioning Repair School is not just a two year trade school but the latest chapter in the history of an A/C Repair fraternity that dates back to the time of the pharaohs. This society started off as lowly servants but eventually gained enough influence to become a secret power in the world. Written in the sacred texts of "The Air Conditioning Repair Manual" that was passed down from the society's original founders, its followers await the coming of a messiah known as "The Truest Repairman". Its first mention was in the Season One episode "Advanced Criminal Law". It made its official debut in the Season Three episode "Biology 101".

Annual PaintballEdit

An annual game of Paintball Assassin is usually played near the end of every Spring semester to close out the school year. The 2010 prize was priority registration ("Modern Warfare"), the 2011 prize was $100,000 ("A Fistful of Paintballs") and the 2012 prize was tickets to a touring production of Chicago ("Curriculum Unavailable"). In 2015 the school's administration consultant Frankie Dart put a ban on all paintball contests on campus. This was due to the expensive costs of cleaning up the school after the games were over along with the numerous complaints from the custodial and janitorial departments ("Modern Espionage").
