After being here for one year, I have found that I really appreciate the small class sizes. It feels more one on one with the professors and keeps everyone closer together. Overall I think this is a great place to start our getting your transfer or associates. There are so many great programs this college has to offer. We have a great mechanical and technical 2 year degree that throws you right into the work force. Overall a great school to attend.
This is a great Community College with lots of faculty involvement. The class content is just as great as a large college but cheaper. A great place to go back to school to as a transistion between High School and a four year college. There are lots of places to study and the classes are often small enough to get to know most of your class mates.
Mt Hood doesn't have the best Art program since it is a starter college after all, but other than that it is a nice college and there are many different types of clubs and programs to choose from. There is also a study center that is offered for students who need help with class work and there are study groups too.
Mt hood is decent for the price. Some departments are lacking (the math department for example is hard to find a good professor for, with decent hours). The library is nice for studying but a little on the small side. Bathrooms are a hit or miss, and don't even get me started on the parking situation. However, Mt Hood Community College is about what I expected it to be. It is very diverse, but is somewhat affordable, and now even has my favorite coffee place on campus!
Overall, Mt Hood Community College is a great place for anyone trying to get back into school or go in early. It's a great stepping stone for high schools wanting to do dual credit and generally a fun place to be. Classes are fun and teachers are kind and often accommodate student needs. Deserves a good 3.5 stars.
The college its self is well kept and looks new (witch is important to me at least). The classes them self's are not over packed (the classes I took anyways) and the teachers I have meat so far are helpful in there own ways. For it being a community college there are lots of people to help you figure out your next steps and what to do.
It was average for being a community college. I didn't really do much except for attend class then go home or go to work. The professors for the most part were good, they were easy to get along with. The course loads weren't too demanding. However I was eager to transfer out to university to have more of a focus on my major. The best classes here were the psychology and education classes.
They know how to keep the students involved and every class I’ve been in everyone there is there to learn and they’re engaged in the class. I’ve met some down to earth people too, my first term a women of twin babies is taking classes trying to make a better future for her kids and I thought that was amazing. This term a guy that did drug for years decided to quite and finish school, he got his GED and he’s working on his associates. This school is full of people that have unique stories and this college is putting all those stories into one. If you get someone like that in your class try and learn from them, ask them politely why they’re there and how they got there. Learn and hopefully you won’t make the same mistakes that they did.
It is a school that doesn't have a lot of culture. It feels like a school that is a stepping stone or an entry-level school that will lead you onto something bigger. People go to this school to start out their college path and because of that, a lot of people don't know about the process so I feel like they could do a better job communicating with the students.
Mt. Hood Community College is different from your average community college. The setting is unique, since the campus is surrounded by a lush forested area, where people can enjoy nature and take outdoor classes. Oregon’s famous Mt. Hood can be seen on a clear day, from all different angles, whether you are relaxing outside on the bright red picnic tables or doing your homework in the Student Union. MHCC provides many fun areas for nature lovers, such as an outdoor bonfire that, with faculty permission, students can use and a state-of-the-art planetarium for lovers of the cosmos.
The college layout is open, as classrooms are generally not enclosed by buildings, and can be accessed with no difficulty. This promotes a calming and effective learning environment. Professor’s are easily accessible with their offices being sectioned by department, making them easy to find. Of course, it is expected that you abide by office hours, to make sure that your instructors are not distracted from grading or their other work.
Academically, Mt. Hood offers a range of different programs, all the way from Cosmetology to Digital Media to Nursing! As a community college, you can really feel that MHCC caters to the demands of the public and is trying to help everyone achieve their goals.
From my perspective, Mt. Hood really provides a stable environment to learn and gives you a great education for a lower cost. I highly recommend Mt. Hood CC to anyone in the Portland or Gresham areas!
Mt. Hood Community College is an ever-developing school. Located in an indecent area, it makes its best attempt to break the norm of its location by expanding its opportunities offered, clubs, making renovations, and events. I can say that Mt. Hood was always an interesting place to be. It seemed frequent that you'd walk past the courtyard and some event would be going on. Their biggest downfall, however, is definitely college continuation preparation. I know many students who'd graduated from Mt. Hood and continued on at four-year colleges feeling that Mt. Hood did a disservice to them by making their courses too easy. For the cost, it is an otherwise decent school.
I think it is a wonderful college to be. They have wonderful places to go for help to finding your right career path if you are having trouble. They have a ton of classes to take to second languages classes to auto shop classes. They are across from a movie theater and a few minutes away from a outdoor mall. They are public transit goes right by the college.
Mt. Hood is a good community place. There aren't a lot of on-campus opportunities for involvement or for activities, however the diverse campus does bring a neighborhood aspect to the college that I was not exposed to in high school. Overall, I'd say that Mt. Hood is a pretty good school.
I haven't had a bad experience with MHCC. It's been a really good learning environment for me with good people, and great food though it may be a little expensive. The stuff made fresh is worth the price. Teachers have been incredibly helpful and absolutely want me to succeed in college. They make themselves available to help students and provide good resources. Only thing I think needs to change is providing more awareness about scholarship and grant money.
Not a bad school, defenetly a good start for school. I started coming right out of high school and knew nothing about how colleges worked. They helped me get started and put me right on the path that I wanted to be on for my major, and what I wanted to do for a career.
I really like attending Mount Hood Community College. Honestly, one of the best parts is that you don't have to buy a parking permit, and the parking spaces themselves are very spacious. You don't have to spend a couple minutes edging in and wiggling your car just to fit into a spot. There's definitely competition for parking spaces, but no matter the size of your vehicle, it's not hard to fit in. There's people from all over the political spectrum, and people of every hobby. It's a really relaxed atmosphere, and definitely conducive to learning.
I really enjoy attending Mt. Hood Community College. The professors are amazing individuals, they are very concerned about their students and care about how they are doing in class and outside of class. There are a handful of teachers that are not the best but most professors are very compassionate. The facility feels very safe, it is older but is kept in good condition. I would like to mention that one thing that Mt. Hood Community College excels at, is providing free resources for students such as scholarship workshops.
i love the school and it will be a great fit for anyone . theres club and alot of opportunity for anybody. theres sport and alot of major you can choose from. if you need any help theres always gonna somebody to help you succeed . you will need to live in campus i believe only fresham year than you can live outside the school dorm. theres stores and food places really close to you. you can meet new people everyday.
Mt. Hood has a very welcoming community. There are professors here to not only do their job, but are willing help a student find his or her classroom. Mt. Hood also has a grateful avid room in which you can different forms of tutors. From writing to math, They are willing to help! Sports facilities and facilities in general are great for a community college. With Basketball and weight room open from 12-1 open to the community. It helps as it gives students opportunities to experience stuff they don't at a university. Other classes we offer are GED which is a high school diploma, but with not as much schooling, and is easier to get. The student union here is a great place to get homework and other things done while not in class, great place other than the library. In case it gets full.
The culture at MHCC is great! The programs range from Business all the way to Wilderness Leadership. There are all kinds of students that are taking different majors and advisers that are willing to talk to you about it. Going to class at MHCC every day seems as if we were at a university.
Mt. Hood Community College is a good community college, I recommend MHCC to others who have not decided on their future career goals. In general, going to MHCC or any community college is a great way to save money for general studies then transferring to a university to earn a bachelors. I will say that MHCC has the best TRIO-student support services that I am also a part of. I also take online classes and they are quite easy and I definitely prefer online then going to class, because of the flexibility. Some advisors are not the best and I recommend TRIO 100% if a student is planning on pursuing a bachelors degree. I also recommend going to student orientations or scheduling a one on one tour with a tour guide on the MHCC website. Asking questions is essential because their portal system can be very confusing and even signing up for classes can be tricky at first. On a final note, parking in the morning after 8:00 am is a hassle, and I highly recommend getting to school a bit early for morning/afternoon classes or park by the back of the school near the headstart/school buses. Also, cars do get stolen quite frequently near the J parking lot, because it is near the sidewalk with outside traffic.
I think it’s great and I have had some really amazing teachers form here in the past couple of years and everyone’s been amazing. I was really nervous when I first started because the campus was so big, but I really like the set up. I also love the library it’s big and spacious and has a lot of different rooms and spaces to study and the black rock is an added bonus.
