My overall opinion of the school is basically that there is room for some improvement. For example, the professors do not always make it clear to what their office hours are if a student would like to speak with them out of class. Also, some of the staff in the offices seem like they do not know what they are doing at times. Therefore, a student will have further questions that the staff can't even answer sometimes. However, they do have computer labs if atudents need to work on their papers and projects. There isnt any on campus housing because it is a community college so that isn't an issue. The food on campus is okay but not that great. They do have a workout room however, it is very small and it is rarely open.
HCC is a great school. I met many friends here, I even became friends with the faculty and staff. I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa which gave me plenty of opportunities. The class size is great and many of my professors were very attentive and willing to answer any questions I had. Overall a great place to learn. Stay close, go far!
Housatonic Community College is a small school always looking to expand. We are all about the arts here. We have poetry slams, art showcases, plays and a very active theatrical department.
We also love to talk about what is going on around us we always have people coming to talk about books or problems going on in our nation. We even create classes in the semester to talk about the problems of the nation or the good things about our nation. At Housatonic, we have areas to where we can relax and a game room to release steam of college life. So, if these type of things like small classes, accessible teachers, and a community feel come join us.

If I could go back in time and talk to myself with advice I would tell myself to go straight into a four year college/university. The reason for this piece of advice is that since I knew what I wanted to do I could have gone and got a bachelors in Nursing instead of trying to obtain a Associates in Nursing. With community college,it states that it's a two year program; however with the pre-requisiite classes people have to take before other classes can be taken, it can easily make the experience to take four years. Also, depending on the degree people choose, the school may have a contract with another school to continue education; such as Nursing in Connnecticut does. Occasionally with this system people may not be able to attend that school after completeing the other classes. This is why I would give this simple piece of advice to myself If I could.
The worst thing I consider about my school is that there are not alot of groups or clubs that I can participate in and feel that I didn't do enough at my school.
This school was the one that stuck out to me the most, and also the one that i had the most advisers to come and help me as well. Also had one professer who helped me through the process of picking my classes.
Very diverse, most are very motivated. all ages, all ethnicities.
Housatonic Community College is best known for their display of art around the hallways. From every corner or even outside the building, there is a sculpture or painting that catches the eye. When first arriving, I thought it was a museum rather than a college because of the exquisite pieces on walls or hung high in the actual art gallery.
I wish I had realized that scholarships were available for community college students, too. I had always thought that because I was not attending a four year institution from the start, I would not qualify for any type of scholarship or funding. Boy, was I wrong! In searching for transfer scholarships, I am coming across all types of scholarships for students currently attending two year colleges. I know that the tuition is not as costly as that of a four year institution, but on a minimum wage salary, anything would have helped!
A person who does not know what they want to do after high school. This way they have the opportunity to discover what they want to do without paying a huge tuition every year, to finally switch and dcide on something else.
This is an absurd question. Housatonic Community is a college open to all, no matter what the circumstances may be. If one feels like getting an eduacation to persue their dream, the staff at Hosatonic are always there to help you fulfill their needs.
I always brag about the amount of money I am saving by going to community college for the first two years of my college education (undergraduate, that is). Whenever they mention all of the student loans they had to take out in the past couple years, I cannot help but breathe a sigh of relief that I do not have to worry about accruing any financial debt until my junior and senior years. I think that figuring out a way to save so much money and still receive a great education earns me some bragging rights!
