Hinds Community College has very helpful staff. The buildings are always clean and are easy to find. I always feel safe because there is always a teacher or security guard around. The library is amazing, and the seating is very comfortable. I believe that everyone would love Hinds if they went.

Frances K.

I love Hinds! This college is just what I need to step out of my comfort zone as needed in order to learn to overcome my shyness. The classroom sizes are small and the teachers are here for the students. Their first priority is that you do well in the class and they treat you like a person. The Honors Institute is the next level of interaction and support and it has really meant a lot to me to be a part of it. I definitely do not regret coming to Hinds. The relationships and friendships I have made with some of the teachers and students are priceless!

Katelyn

Hinds CC is one of the best schools that I've been to. I currently stay at home and drive to Hinds, but Hinds is a short drive from my home to the school. I have been going to Hinds ever since I graduated high school in '13 and I am continuing my education at the Hinds Nursing Allied Health Center in the ADN program. I am excited to see where my journey takes me with Hinds Community College.

  12. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    Hinds Community College is a well run organization. The strongest negative that can be said is that a student can only miss three classes during a semester no matter the reason. Once the third class is missed, a student is dropped from the class. Unfortunate events such as sickness, death, work, etc. should sometimes be an excused absence for students who otherwise consistently demonstrate a good school "work ethic". Life happens.
