This school has replaced the Ecotourism and Adventure Travel Degree, which was ranked top 5 in the WORLD with Fracking Petrolium Degree. This new president is out to destroy the environment and therefore everything this school once stood for. Whether or not you look from a moral or economic perspective, this college is under poor administration and should be avoided at all cost. Because ultimately, the cost will be at your own expense.
Hocking College is a great school that is victim of a horrible college president. President Betty Young has been president of the college for just over two years now. She has done very little to improve student life, let alone academic options. Several programs have been either stripped, or cut down to the bare minimum requirements to still be an applicable college major. This is specifically about a the Equine programs that the school offers. However, this also applies to the Art Design and Marketing program. The program was stripped down to the bare minimum so that the current class could graduate. Then the program will be cut. Also, there are no cameras in the school parking lots. You have to pay for a parking pass, and get no secure peace of mind. Third, within the last three years, the school managed to acquire funding for a football team. The idea may look good on paper, but Hocking has managed to bring the worst crowds of students to their campus using the football team. Ever since their arrival, we've been victim to sexual harassment and assault, increased drug and alcohol activity, and increased filth within the residence halls. This is not because of the demographic. This is because the players have a lack of respect for the campus staff and fellow students. They refuse to exercise personal hygiene for the most part. Fourth, the Hocking College Meal Plan is severely overpriced. You pay more than it's worth for the amount of food you can get. Fifth, the college seems to act like they have to pull teeth to help a student in financial need.
On the plus side, the Residence Hall staff, Cafeteria staff, and Campus Safety staff are very friendly. They do what they can to make sure the student comes first. Professors very good about replying to students as soon as they can. Classes are very hands on, rather than large capacity lectures as seen on movies and TV shows. It has a very home-y atmosphere if you can get past the townsfolk of Nelsonville.

Almost refuses to help students in financial need.
Love the NR programs here. I have graduated from Wildlife Management and I am obtaining another degree in Natural and Historical Interpretation. Most of the teachers are teaching you to be a professional in the field and will treat you as an adult. They are always there to help when they can and will challenge you intellectually.
My overall opinion of Hocking College is that it is a great school and academically a good choice for students who want a small campus experience. I love that it is located in the country, there are woods and hiking right behind the dorms. The great outdoors experience here is the best! My teachers are all about me and their students, they care about us and want us to succeed. I'm so glad i chose this school.

If I could go back in time to talk to myself as a senior in high school, the advice I would give myself would be to apply for more scholarships. While I recognized the importance of scholarships, I feel like I did not have the resources or the tools to utilize scholarship opportunities that were available. I also would advise myself to try harder to find a job before graduating, to help with the initial expenses upon entering college.
At Hocking College, the hands-on, student-centered teaching techniques give students the knowledge and confidence to lead a successful career after graduating, as well as the tools necessary for further education.
Hocking College is best known for its Natural Resources Programs. From Equine Health to Wildlife Managment.
Hocking is a good school for students just starting out of high school or returning students. This school helps ease you into what college is. From the two new dormatories to the brand new bike path that goes from Athens to Nelsonville, soon to be longer. Hocking has a little bit of every thing for the new and returning student.
Hocking College is an okay school, but they are very unorganized and lose students information a lot.
I think it is a perfect fit for me. It does have a very specific focus. It is an unconventional institution. Its main focus is Natural Resources. It is very hands on and interactive. If you are drawn to the outdoors, public safety or the culinary arts I highly recommend Hocking
The importance of diversity and a well rounded education, before college, during and after. People change as they grow older and mature.
It is completely impossible to dictate where life will lead or where interests will lead in the coming years. Knowledge that you now find irrelevent or even boring, could in the future be vital to your understanding at some point in your education. Gettin a background of all conceivable basics now is a small step up when confronted with new content and challenges. Be a sponge, not a brick dropping into only what interests you at the time.
The worst thing about my school is that it is mostly a commuter school so I have to drive to school everyday instead of just being able to walk from the dorms or from a house close to campus. Another reason this is the worst thing is because it is always so hard to find a parking spot and you have to plan to go to class at least 20 minutes early to give yourself enough time to find a spot to park.
The type of person who shouldn't attend Hocking College would be someone looking for the traditional, book based college expierience. Hocking college offers a very unique college expierience filled with hands on learning, real world job situations and activities out in the field. People looking for a traditional classroom setting and primarily booked based learning should not attend Hocking College because it really doesn't fit into that learning style those individuals may seek.
I just took one semester ESL ( English as Second Language) classes at my school before i can start taking academic classes in spring 2014. Thus, the most frustrating thing about my school is that our ESL teachers would let students to take tests after the day they were supposed to take the test even if they don't have any justification for being absent. That really frustrated me because when i was in OPIE ( Ohio Program for Intensive English) at Athens campus, teachers never let students take test after the test day. for me it makes students irresponsible
My class mates are very helpful, friendly, easy to talk to, and willing to learn and tutor.
Hocking was ranked number one in the nation for students who passed the nursing exam on the first try. They offer the best instruction at an affordable rate. A small campus in a little community that has affordable on campus and off campus housing.
Hands on. I have made trips outside in just about every one of my classes. We are out in the woods and looking at, feeling, smelling and investigating the trees, animals and general lay of the land. That of course is but one major. There is Equestrian, public safety, fire fighting, EMT, Culinary, Hospitality and Nursing programs. The main focus is in the Natural Resource Department. Its fun to go to class. Also there is a Canada Trip that I will hopefully partake in.
Country. Yes, it is accurate. The town itself is a small town. The majors seem to fit that stereotype as well
I tell them mostly that their bookstore is awesome with their prices because their lower then the other college I went to and their books were more expensive. Plus that their weights are awesome to work with.
