What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a school with little to no extras besides going there for school. The food is ok, but not much variety. The school isn’t met to be a place, of comfort like a typical college, but a school to go and get your aa degree. I think of this school as an easy way to get an associates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I strongly recommend to all those who live in Tampa, Hillsborough county and surrounding areas to take the opportunity to go to HCC not only to save money, whether just for one year or two before transferring or to get a A.S degree and jump into your career path but also to experience college life. I took two years off after graduating high school and HCC helped ease the transition. It gives you a glimpse of the culture, workload and activities which I feel helps people determine how much if any amount of schooling is right for them. HCC is not the fanciest but we have a welcoming culture for the most part and that’s what matters the most. Acceptance to learn freely.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hillsborough Community College could be a great community college if certain areas were improved. Signing up and paying for classes should be easy, as its the primary focus for a school, however, HCC makes it hard. Students are capable of signing up for classes online via HawkNet and on campus, but the website often encounters many errors and the line on campus can become extremely long, and might require students to make an appointment with an advisor beforehand. Additionally, many students pay for classes through scholarships, which checks can be dropped off on campus or mailed in. Personally, I have paid for all of my classes so far through scholarships but HCC makes it so hard. The process is lengthy as they go through a third party. Long story short, my scholarship check is dropped off at HCC to be sent to the third party to only come back to me. Since this process takes so long, often I am kicked from the classes I enrolled in and have to start all over during registration. Because of this, signing up for classes becomes much harder. Hillsborough Community college does have its positives. The class sizes are small, roughly 25 students and the professors are always willing to help. There are large parking lots, but the walk to class is never too long. Additionally, there are many campuses in the Hillsborough county area, so students have a choice of which campus to attend. The Dale Mabry campus is located to Raymond James Stadium, home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers which makes me feel closer to the Tampa sports culture. The Ybor campus is located in Cigar City and is home to many concerts and rich with art. The Brandon campus is the furthest out, but is large and gives off more of a University feel. Overall, HCC is the campus for anyone who feels stuck in between transitions. For many, this is a place for high school graduates who didn't feel ready for university. Or for mothers and fathers who want to go back to school to better themselves and their families. Really, HCC is for anyone who is willing to learn and is ready to do so. With few improvements, the community college could outshine the surrounding schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I actually enjoyed going to HCC. I love how the classes are small and you can talk to your professor one on one when you need to. I like how they would sometimes have free events such as giving out food. I like how free you are. There were plenty times where we were able to leave class early because the teacher didn't have anything else to teach. I mean, who doesn't like to leave class early? If I could redo some things while attending HCC I would.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

HCC is an amazing college with so many opportunities and great staff who are always willing and wanting to help! All the students are extremely nice and eager to learn. Classroom sizes are perfect because they are pretty small which allows for maximum interaction with your professor if you have any questions about anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school provided me with an amazing opportunity to broaden my college-level general education and prepare me for university. I enjoyed my time at HCC and I am proud to call myself an alumni. There were always resources available to me if and when I needed them. The staff outside the classroom were also very friendly to everyone, whether they knew them well or saw them once or twice a year. Overall, HCC was a great place to learn and I would recommend it to anyone who may want to pursue it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school, when you need help the teachers and staff are always there trying to help students find their path in life. The classes are only hard when you don't do the work or pay attention but other then that the classes are easy enough to get by through. A lot of the teachers seem to care about the course they are teaching as well as the students trying to learn it so that's really good.
