3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: i enjoy to grow as a person and this school helps me do it

5 College Senior

Student Body: Half and Half – Seems like half the school are young, straight out of high school with the goal of transferring. The other half of the student body seem like they are older, career orientated people who are there to refresh skills.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: At this point in my life I take a lot of online classes and I am in my 30's so social scene is not really important to me, but it seems fine.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Transferring for me was a good experience. My credits where on target to Cal Poly wants and I didn't have any hassles. I talked with my counsalor for my classes and curriculum for school. I received a list of classes I needed and I followed it and made my transfer.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: School was sit up for all different education. The academic that I was in was Ag. Business and the school work with me so I could transfer to Cal Poly.The Transfer program was really helpful. Campus life was good, I played tennis for the school and made some really good friends and had good opportunities for me.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Summary of My School – I've enjoyed going to the junior college. It's been new, inviting, and a great learning experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: campus facilities are extremely helpfull to the students. Our school has a great lerning center as well as a wonderful library. We have a great athletics program at Ahc. We have football, soccer, softball, basketball, etc. The teams work very hard athletic and academic wise. We have a new science buiding where we have labs and have outstanding nursing and dentistry programs. The only downside is that there is not many campus activities. Definitley need to work more on that part of school. But otherwise, everthing is great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Great Opportunities – My school has a lot of positive things. Its not that largest school, but there is definitley great changes coming. Studens come to school to get an education and having helpful resources is always a great thing. AHC provides us with a great library in which students go to study or simply to have some quiet time. Im very impressed with the large varitey of books that they have. The school librarians are always so helpful to the students. We also have a learning center where the school provides us with many computers so students can go to complete homework or do research. We also have amazing programs such as, science, math, engineering, architecture, English, computer science, art, music and dance programs. In my opinion my school is doing such a wonderful job in helping students out and it keeps growing and getting better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College Review – Allan Hancock college is a great community college.My fellow peers and professors are very kind. I like it here because all the teachers are always willing to help us students out as well as counselors.They are a huge help. A lot of students dont have "school pride" right now, but i hope that changes, because this is a great school that deserves more acknowledgment from the students. AHCC is providing me with a great education and im very thankful for that. This school is doing a good job in preparing me to go to a university. Im enjoying every minute of this great expirience.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Variety of Age and Work-Loads – My school consists of all types of students. from kids still in high school all the way us to senior citizens. The younger students tend to have part time jobs but the older students juggle a family, a full time job and take classes on the side. The ethnicity is well diverse, and there is rarely any conflict between them. In class most students are accommodating to everyone. Many are there for the education and nothing else.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Wireless Drops – I don't have a problem with the wireless network speed, but sometimes there were spots on campus I could not access wireless. I also did not like that after 5 minutes of inactivity the wireless spot would drop you and you would have to sign in again. For most students we have to pause and read something on a page that make take too long, which results with us signing in continuously. I just recommend that the extend that time period to 10-15 minutes before they drop you.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good College for a Small Town – I enjoyed my school. I took the classes I needed and rarely was I disappointing with my teachers. Most were friendly, entertaining in class and made the material easy to comprehend. While I never participated in any school activities or functions, there was always something going on and the kids that did attend always had a good time. I am pleased with my college, it is an experience that I would not trade even if I could.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Student Resources – Student resourses are great, there is a writing center a math center and the library also has great resources. It is really easy to attend school here and not be forced to own a computer becuase you have acess to one whenever needed. The math center offers help and provides books or videos and much more to help you in your studies. There is also tutoring for any academic class you need and its almost always free.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The reason I gave it an A was that when a semester is about to start the financial aid office gets really packed and you have to stand in line for about an hour or maybe more.
but other wise they now have made direct deposit into a specially designed card for financial reinbursement. It is much faster than waiting for a check in the mail. And building a new building for the student resource center is in prosess and will definitly improve the long lines for future incoming students once its is finished.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: if i had to do it again, i would chose a different school. some of the staff makes students' lives more than difficult.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: ahc staff has been frustrating, as some of teachers make it as hard as possible for students to pass a course.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Public Speaking Experiences – Shortly after 9-11, I had to stand up and give a speach to my class of ages ranging from 17-65. We all could hardly focus on anything else. I think that speaking about it was the first step to dealing with the un-measurable tragedy! We will never forget...

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Great for Students of ALL Ages! This college attracts students of all ages which I feel is an added benefit to gaining real world experience. I learned how to relate to elders as well as young people right out of high school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Happy With What I Have – I like my school. I don't have the typical college 'pride' that you see in four year universities as AHC is a junior/community college. However, AHC is giving me the education that I need to transfer to a four year university. I haven't attended many school events or functions as I'm here to complete my education, but I have attended some to further enhance my college experience while I'm here.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Most Have Other Priorities – If you had friends in high school that are in the same college with you, chances are you still hang out and study together. When I started attending this college, I had left high school with only 3 best friends, 1 of which is attending the same college. I've made a few acquaintances since I've been attending, but none of which seem to be developing relationships any further. The students seem to have their own crowd of people and, if you're on the shy side, it's easy to be discouraged by this. There are college clubs, but sometimes you just don't know what to expect. Because this city is of medium size with a growing population yet lacking any attractions, it's very boring and it seems as if everyone who's attending the college is just trying to get their education and get out (even my best friend rarely has time to hang out anymore). Many of the students have part time or full time jobs that they've managed to hold onto during this recession just to pay for their college education.

2 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am working towards being a psychology major, but am at Hancock college to transfer to UCSB. So far my experience with this school has not been acceptable, I find it very hard to get help with anything, and the counselors are hard to see. I am a busy mom so I take mostly online classes, which can be frustrating but not too overwhelming.
