3 College Senior

Student Body: There are many clubs and activities available at HACC. There are events such as Chinese New Year and Valentines Day celebrations. There is a great deal of diversity on campus. There are people from all backgrounds and walks of life. This makes for a very interesting and stimulating environment. I have witnessed very few challenges associated with diversity. In my opinion it is a strength of the school

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Speaking of the "typical student" at HACC, students vary greatly in age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, goals, backgrounds, etc. As a community college, students are either middle-to-low income or, occasionally, just money conscious individuals.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There are so many different kinds of people that attend HACC. They are a variety of ages and races. Everyone is accepted at HACC and feel that they have an equal opportunity for education.

3 College Student

Student Body: Everyone is pretty chill here, and mostly locals. There are a variety of different people. There seems to be a lot of older people who attend Lancaster HACC, but there is still more younger college aged kids I'd say. Most of the other students I have encountered have been friendly. There is a decent amount of diversity, which is good since I went to a primarily white high school.

5 College Senior

Student Body: There are sooo many different kinds of students here. Young, old, straight, gay, conservative, liberal, rich and poor. And you'll see pretty much every ethnicity too. It's really a great place to go if you're not a cookie-cutter college student. But hey, we have those too. I have noticed that the social life is not at the same standards as other colleges. Maybe because many students are adults and have families and other priorities. I'd say the focus is definitely more academic.
