Catherine - 09/30/2020

I have been attending Howard Community College for the past year as a dual-enrolled student. I have had such a great experience with online learning there. Teachers get back to my quickly and the workload has never been too much for me. Though a community college does not have the "college experience" one might immediately think of, I have learned a lot and would not want to change anything. If you are looking for an excellent college education that won't break the bank, HCC is the way to go!

Racheal

Its a affordable way to start adulthood because it doesn't cost as much as universities yet the education is really good even comparing to regular universities.

Faith

Great community college campus. It looks and feels very updated. I enjoy the feel and the upkeep. People seem nice so far. It can get a little confusing when getting information actually to the students. Good class size and professors. People wish there was better food and activities on campus.

Ramsey

It is a good school. The campus is clean as a whole. Parking there is quite a problem. The advisors are helpful and teachers are there to help as well, they have office hours. It is a safe campus with good class ratios. The food on campus is ok, but we have lots of food shops around to eat at. There are no dorms because it is a community college, but there are apartments around the campus you can rent out.

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

    If given the opportunity to go back and talk to myself as a senior in high school, the conversation would be seemingly endless. The most enriching advice I would give myself would be to fill out tons of scholarship applications. After my first year in college, the expense of college quickly piled up. From books to labs fees, to general tuition, the cost of education is rising yearly. With that said, it is wise to apply for money to pay for an education by filling out applications. Although, my mother constantly bugged me about filling out scholarships, I routinely ignored her stating, ?I was on vacation?. Knowing what I know now, I would have advised myself to apply for at least two scholarship applications a week. I attended a workshop during the summer which informed me how to apply for scholarships. Through this workshop a meet a lady who financed her entire education with private scholarships. In turn this motivated me to do the same and follow in her footsteps.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The lack of early morning/evening and online/teleweb courses. I feel that Howard Community College has the technology to have more of these hybrid courses, yet they do not offer them. I feel that a lot of the courses I have taken here could have been offered online and I would have gotten just as much out of them as I did having to go into the campus. It is rather frustrating and discouraging for someone with a full time job to attend this college - it makes a college education seem impossible.
