Great college and really nice professors. The way of teaching the learning materials of your major are very clear. The professors are always available for feedback and ready to help where you are struggle with your learning. Also if you need more understanding you can find your way to the learning center.

I view Harford Community College to have such an amazing campus, faculty, sports, activities, etc. The design of the college is very simplistic and modern. The variety of programs offered are great. The school offers many online courses, hybrid courses, and studio classes. The online website is very helpful and you never miss an update or alert.

Harford Community College is fantastic for a community college. In fact, it has to be the best community college in Maryland. I've heard the horror stories having to do with community college, and this college is far from it. There's always something going on campus. Most of the professors actually love their jobs and it shows through their teaching. Every psychology teacher I've had, I've loved. The food isn't that bad either. It could be less expensive though. There isn't any on-campus housing and I don't know about an off-campus housing because I could drive there from my house. The students are from all areas of life. You have the crazy and not so crazy, the young and the old, the smart and maybe not the smartest person in the room, and a variety of cultures that clash together to create great diversity in the college. Overall, Harford was a great experience, and it was cheap. If I needed to go back for another degree at some point in my life, I would most definitely choose Harford

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Senior year will be a roller coaster, you will lose friends, you will find love, you will succeed in math, and you will be disappointed. Senior year was worth waiting for and now you are so close, just take a deep breath and pace yourself; just because you are accepted in a college doesn't mean it's time to give up. Learn to balance the close circle of friends, the new boyfriend (old best friend), and let go the friends who don't seem to want you anymore. Senior year will challenge you on an emotional level, but this wait will prove to be worth it. Because you will grow so much in such a short time.
