We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

carlos

Hartnell is a very good College. There are plenty of ways to get involved and the professors are Outstanding. I totally recommend if you live in the area or out. The only negative about this campus is the fact that the campus is somewhat small, meaning only so many instructors can teach the same subject and at the same time, so early registration is very important.

Ariana

Hartnell College is a great campus because it offers small size classes, opportunities to get financial/academic assistance, a library with fast access to the internet. The faculty is kind to everyone and the janitors always leave the campus clean. Also, Professors keep in track with the syllabus and office hours.

Amandeep

Okay college if only going for 2 year and then transferring out.

Tracey

I think that all the faculty is there to help us achieve our goals and have a very efficient way of making sure that happens as long as you are determined as well. Overall I would recommend Hartnell to many students. Most would agree with my statement as well. The professors that we have are always available to help and give clear instructions as well.

Jennifer

This is a great college for people who want to test the waters and see what college is like before they transfer to a 4 year university. Hartnell college helps students transition from high school into college in the smoothest way possible. There is always an endless amount of support from counselors, coaches, professors, and other students as well. Hartnell college is a great college for people who want to save a few dollars and see what the college environment is all about before pursuing their dreams at a university.

Evangelina

Hartnell College always encourages students to thrive and do their best in class and out of class. The professors are always helping students engage in what they are teaching and help students take a step closer to their dreams. Hartnell's office hours are open for a decent amount of time so students can go use there resources in order to be a successful college student. The office always answers there phone calls and tries to help to best of their ability. I even took their dual enrollment program provided at my high school and those classes were amazing. The teachers opened their office hours longer than the high school teachers. They also had one on one meeting to make sure you were understanding the ciricullam they were teaching in class. Overall, I would defienetly recommend going to hartnell college.

Estefanie

My opinion of Hartnell College is that it is a really safe environment where students can learn. The staff is really helpful and is willing to help out the students in order to help them succeed.The professors are really on top of it because they are willing to help out students by providing office hours and having SI's.

Erika

Hartnell College is sufficient, which may not sound like the best environment for students. It does help students get their AA or AS and is incredibly helpful once one knows how to work the programs. However, there's not really anything to do in this area. There's hardly any clubs and the sports aren't hyped.

Brandon

I just moved out here to the Monterey county but so far after being here now for 1 month and a half, I can say that this school is excellent. All building here at Hartnell are labeled and are all really close. Classes are also available at late hours around like 5 pm, but as well early. Students from other countries like Mexico or El Salvador get so much help and counseling to determine the students future. So much help is provided here. I love it! Anyone in the area (Salinas or Monterey area) that wants to save money and transfer can happily come to Hartnell. You will not regret it.

Hartnell is a community college, so there is obviously a big difference in student life then there would be at a university with on-campus housing. Most of the professors are very good. There is not much campus life as most people at Hartnell are people going to school to go to school; people with jobs, families and other priorities. There are sports but there isn't really a big sports culture. I think its a good place for people looking to go back to school, or people looking to transfer to a four-year university, and there are many programs that are a big help for students such as EOPS and TRiO.

Raquel

Hartnell has nice professors/Dr. there & along with awesome clubs/programs you’re able to join! Sports are another big bonus & have great coaches. Overall, the campus is beautiful, fully mixed with different ethnicities, great resources and a full security team in/on campus site.

Maria

I think Hartnell College is a really great college to go to there are many teachers who try to help their students in many ways, I am especially really satisfied with the counseling department my counselor always tries to help and attend me in the best way when I have a question about something.

Megan

Hartnell College is a good community college. Class sizes are not small, and there is literally no parking around campus. The security love to give parking tickets, especially if you back into a parking space, but are useless when an actual crime is being committed. Aside from that, Hartnell is a small school, population wise, but a powerhouse in athletics. From state titles, to league championships, and All Americans, Hartnell produces D1 athletes. Academics wise, it is not a big science concentrated school, more for general ed and kinesiology majors. Overall, it is a good community college, and an even better one if you want to play sports.

Jeremey

It’s a great place to get everything going for a college career in a 4 year institute. The professors are very willing to help in any way that they can and the diversity within the campus helps to open new doors of perception and humanity. It is very good for what it is.

Rodrigo

I think Hartnell College is a great community college for students in the area. It allows you to take great classes to be able to transfer in a few years. It located in the downtown area so there is a lot of places to go eat and hang out. The campus is a decent size as well and has a new STEM building which is nice.

Eliana

It's a great community college to begin your college career as an undergraduate. Most apple transfer out after their first two years and its amazing how they give the city's residents free 2-year tuition. Regardless of whether or not you transfer or stay for all 4 years, they have amazing career courses/options .

Brittany

I have been attending Hartnell College since 2017 and I have enjoyed it. The classes are a great size and you really get to know the teachers and students. I am an ag business student so I always have the same students and teachers which makes it a better experience. There are two campus in town and the smaller one is dedicated to agriculture which I really like. I would recommend anyone that is interested in agriculture to come here for their first two years of college as it is affordable and a good environment.
