Eric - 07/22/2019

I believe that even despite the schools low tuition, and fact that it’s a community college, doesn’t really factor into it’s quality. Sure, because of that, there isn’t as much extracurricular activities or campus facilities as a bigger college. However, the school still provides a good education, and I like the fact that it’s very accessible for anyone looking to start college, or go back.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.

  7. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    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.

  8. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    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!

    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!
