What is your overall opinion of this school?

This place does not care about you flat out. This is my second semester here and I have had a below content experience. It is extremly obvious the college is going under because staff is being fired constantly and part time teachers are being hired. The part time teachers do not care most of the time and just give you A's and B's for completing your work. The food here is absolutely atrocious and sometimes I can barely stomach it and end up eating nothing that day. (The dining hall also closes at 4pm on weekends so good luck eating on weekends if you stay on campus. The worst part about this place is the fact that I feel as if they are just trying to take my money and they do not care about my well being or education at all. If you have no other choice but to go here I recommend commuting so you can save yourself from giving them an extra 12,000 dollars for horrible food, and a bad experience. The only good thing about this place is some of the people are cool if you can put up with getting to know all the gang bangers that roam the hall constantly just failing classes and leaving the next semester. This college in all honesty is horrible and I regret leaving Columbus State and I hope Betty White (the President) loses her job so someone that actually cares about students can be in charge.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hocking College started off great in 2013 when I first attended. When we got a new president, things started to change and the environment changed. More drugs were brought in, food prices went up, people were stealing, we had to put cameras everywhere because the stealing became such a problem. Fights became an issue, on campus and around campus. And the professors with the higher education were fired to make room for professors that could fit in the budget, so the curriculum changed. I was there for three years, and it started of amazing and I would have recommended anyone to go there, but by the time it came to graduation, I don't think I'd recommend anyone to go there. I didn't feel safe, I was cat-called if I wore skirts, and the campus police and safety wasn't much of a help either. No one took them seriously, they wore bright yellow shirts and were nicknamed "the bananas". You can't be taken seriously with that kind of a nickname. They often targeted people they didn't like or know who got drunk, and didn't care about the rest. Even sexual harassment wasn't taken seriously, especially if it happened to a male. I had a roommate who worked campus security, he'd tell me horror stories all the time about what they would let slide and what they wouldn't. He tried to take his job seriously, so he got made fun of for "being too serious" all the time. Despite all that, I made amazing friends, and I had an amazing professor for my Addiction Counseling program. I interned as a counselor for a year and learned alot about addictions and about people with them, and how they're really just humans and my attitude towards them was condescending and needed to change. And I grew a love for psychology and neuroscience. I would go cave diving in the mountains by the college at night time with my friend, it was so awesome! It was the first time I had seen pitch black, with no hint of light. There were collapsed mines where we were, so it was tall enough so we could stand in some parts, and then to get to certain areas we would have to crawl. We would sit and look at the water that had flooded the underground area, and just talk about everything going on in our life. It turned out to be very therapeutic and made for an amazing friendship that I have still to this day. Overall, the college quality wasn't very nice, but the experiences that I gained from going are some that I'll never forget.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The School is awful. No one is organized. No teacher cares enough to provide help or they're just not qualified. The upper-level management just cares about money. They have an impossible attendance policy. The whole staff is extremely unprofessional. I highly recommend a different community college. Half my class has dropped out because of the poor education provided. Complete waste of money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is no Greek life at all just clubs but there are barely any of those. There is not much to do on campus. We have 5 different dorms you can live in. The Cafe is Very costly and they don't serve very good food but my favorite day is Chinese. We have a student center also with a pool two gyms, work out areas and a track.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college may be affordable and promises safety on campus, but the school is actually unsafe in my opinion due to a lot of sexual harassment, fights, and drugs that occur almost on a daily basis. Most of the faculty are not there to help you (with very few exceptions), and more interested in the money. Some teachers have quit in the past due to the fact the students aren't being treated well and their needs aren't being met. I would advise not to go to this school because some of the programs are getting worse and the current President is only putting money into things that make more money and don't know what to do with it. Also, the water makes you sick. There was recently a boil order.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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. Pros: Nice Staff Laid Back Atmosphere Hands On Professional and Caring Instructors Cons: Football Team College President cutting programs Expensive Meal Plan No Parking Lot Security Almost refuses to help students in financial need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hocking college is a very small social college, where everyone knows everyone. Which makes making friends easy and fun. Staff is always available for students at time of the day. Class sizes are small which I love, gives you the perfect one on one time with your teacher easy. I couldn't imagine going to any other school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thought the school was very pretty. I like the fact that it's only two years so I am not stuck there forever. My favorite part was the rooms. I didn't like the fact that they have Landry you have to pay to do. Overall I really have nothing bad to say about the school
