3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: There are some kooky and fun professors in HACC and that's what you can expect from a community college but they really make it nice to go there. You can have fun and joke around with professors and it makes it a more comfortable environment than a University so I liked it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: You will be equipped with the basic essentials to tackle real life with a degree from this school. HACC is not extravagant, It's not prestigious, it's just to get you started and along your way with something to say you did some kind of school. It's easy to recommend someone to a better college if they really want to get out and become something special.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: There isn't anything to complain about in this department. They didn't help with anything extravagant they just did their job.

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: It's a lot harder to know when things are due and if you aren't paying close enough attention to the entire page and all of it's nooks you will miss deadlines. Proffessors are ok to reach if you need them but they can take a while to answer your emails and it's not fun. They do not remind you of any deadlines either so you can't count on them to even casually mention that something is due at one time or another. Online Courses are difficult in those terms alone.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: It's community college. They do what they can to make sure you can make it out in the real world but there is only so much they can do. It's a small school but the staff is compassionate and do their best to work with you and help you reach your goals.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: There are many different types of people in community college. You get poor, wealthy, and everything inbetween. There are a lot more mothers and nursing majors than usual I'm lead to believe. It makes sense though, all you need to do is have a GED or have graduate highschool at one point in your life to get in. It opens the doors for everyone that usually wouldn't get into college. It's highly liberal and sexual in there for everyone to be so close and in one major building.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: Honestly I don't know enough about my major here. I'm transfering only after doing General Education credits.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: it's a decent school with small class, but it doesn't carry the same professionalism as other University or State Colleges might.

4 College Freshman

Student Body at Harrisburg Area Community College - York: Our student body is very diverse. w have ages ranging from18-50 in our school so that means we get to meet different people from various walks of life.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility at Harrisburg Area Community College - York: I would say where I am attending school at now is very helpful with the whole process, and are great with undergrads. The whole process of starting college was scary until my mentors helped with everything I need to be successful.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: This school is generic. The teachers try but the higher management is wasting too much money. Find a better school that allows full financial aid.

College Junior

Career Services at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: None. It is a community College

2 College Junior

Campus Resources at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: The people are good however, it is corrupt higher management.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: Since I tried to complain to the US Government and they told me that they give every school a certain amount every year for financial aid, HACC is screwing over their students. Way to go Pennsylvania. This is what happens when Republicans get a hold of finances. The poor work twice as hard and the poor pay twice.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: I wish they didn't stress the teachers so much and put them under the thumb. I also wish they would not spend MY grant money and leave me in debt. PCC in Oregon has their screws together. HACC does not.

College Junior

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: Can't say yet. I am still playing catch-up since they didn't transfer all of my credits.

College Junior

Online Courses at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: I did online at Portland Community College and it was a hassle and a headache. I had to wait hours and hours just for a yes or no response.

4 College Junior

Student Body at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: The Student Body and Student Government really try to make it work. However, under poor management that is wasting students grant money from the US Government is screwing all of us over.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: The main problem I am seeing is that schools are not supporting teachers as much as they should. Teachers are scared that they will get fired and they are mostly adjunct. I also have a problem with how my school is using the financial aid that the government has given them for the year. According to the US Government, I should have received $5,500 in grant money. My school decided that I should only receive $2,300. They are making me go into debt unnecessarily and for credit that they chose not to transfer from my old school. I had 20 credits from my old school and 3 writing courses and they only chose to transfer the middle ranked class. I am pretty upset with them but I can't say more to them without risking expulsion since every financial aid counselor knows my name and case because the US department of education considers everyone under 24 still a child even though I haven't lived with my dad for over 5 years.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg: I am in my second term there. There is a lot offered. However, I knew kids that committed suicide because of the debt and it is stressful. Worrying about the money is harder than worrying about the classes and I am full time student with a part time job.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: I am a nursing student. Many students go to this school to become RNs and love the clinicals portion of the major.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: The have a great study abroad program for the nursing students where they are able to go to help out with the relief efforts in Haiti. That is something I am passionate about and am so hopeful to be apart of that

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: I went to a university and I feel as though my professors at my current school care more and take an interest in the subjects they teach.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: Our classes are smaller and we recieve one on one teaching if needed. The professors are passionate about teaching and are always willing to help.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience at Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg: The student services are always looking to help with writing resumes, finding jobs and helping in anyway possible

HACC really does personify the phrase, “help me, help you,” through its willing and capable professors, great facilities, and free tutoring in various subjects. It even works with other four-year colleges across the state to help students earn the first two years of credits through transfer programs, including the option of earning an associate degree along the way. The campuses are neatly groomed and landscaped, making it enjoyable to walk from class to class and feel confident about the educational path.

Although the school and its students are incredibly focused on the programs, HACC also provides extracurricular activities and sports for students. The most prominent activities tend to include music and theater performances by students and professionals alike—with great turnouts. There is also a fairly active student government that helps jump-start the students’ interests in making their community college a true "community."
