I believe the worst thing about my school is the inability to connect to your fellow classmates. Everyone is connected through what school they attend and which classes they are in, but it's still difficult to find common ground with people who are almost all there simply for a general education, rather than participating in class because it's the subject that interests them. I feel that students in higher years of education that take courses related to the degree they are pursuing have the advantage of being surrounded by classmates with similar goals that they can connect to.
I believe the worst thing about HCC is how incredibly difficult it is to get in touch with any of the administrators, counselors, etc. in the offices at the college. The phones are always busy and they don't put you on hold. They machine on the other line simply says "Please try your call again later." Even more frustrating is when you can't get ahold of anyone by phone and you go down to the college in person and you wait HOURS just to talk to somebody who will just refer you to someone else and another wait.
I have been going to HCC for 4 semesters now and I haven't found anything that i DONT like.... Everything that you need to complete your assignments is on campus or you have access to get the information on campus. The Professors are friendly and they give one on one advice (If the student takes the time to ask for help...) Really if you want to get an education and have fun while you do it.. I suggest HCC, because after you graduate you will feel like a better person...
The worst thing about my school would be the online web registration to register for each semester. The school's website becomes very slow because of the amount of vistors visting the site to register. Many people get left out on classes that they need to take becuase of the school's website becoming very slow. If the school did something about their site on registering for the new semester they would fix something that i consider the worst thing about my school.
Hillsborough Community College is a great school but the worst thing about it is that it's too small. Every year more and more people enroll into the school but the school doesn't get bigger. Every semester i have to sit at the computer the first day of registration and pick my classes because if i don't the classes usually fill up in about 36 hours.
The worst thing is that the student services office and teachers are sometimes not eager to help you one bit. Sometimes they will make it so hard to get any information or help picking classes, etc. and they will not extend their hours even if you have been waiting in line to speak to someone in student services.
The worst thing about my school would have to be the lack of higher classes. When looking for classes that challenge you intellectually, you can only go so far in Hillsborough Community College, and though the classes do extend far into their respective fields, there just isn't enough at the present time.
The worst thing about my school is it's reputation. Many people think HCC is like 13th grade but it's so much more than that. Even a community college experience is much different than being in high school. We are given much more responsibility and are always treated as adults instead of children.
the worst thing about my school is that admissions office does not cross reference students paper well enough to find errors which cause the student to learn about it later in their course where they would have to go through many more problems then if the error was found sooner.
The worst thing about my school is probably the lack of competent, efficient, and successful mathematics teachers working there. I feel most of them do not communicate effectively, putting a serious block on many credits being able to earned at the school.
