4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The course workload is efficient and the teachers have an understanding of typical working student's workload. Sometimes I feel bogged down trying to balance work and school, but I know that if I discuss it with the teacher, the teacher will understand and attempt to accommodate me.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All of the above minus the registration process and curriculum are excellent. I attribute my lower rating towards those exceptions because I have had difficulty setting up/scheduling courses with the huge student body in attendance. The school tries to continue low teacher to student ratio, but are failing in that students have difficulty getting the courses they need due to student overflow. If the classes were expanded to allow more students, it may pave the road to more difficulties, but also would hiring more teachers in which there aren't an abundance of. I would highly suggest HCC focus on this issue to make registration and class scheduling less of a hassle.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major has a little of everything I've always dreamed of doing. Working in radio broadcasting, music, even forensic science. The workload is great; I have enough time to study hard as well as have time for myself. I'm excited to try work study at the college radio station and work my way toward a career from there.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are kind and actually care about you. The workload is decent, not too much, not too little. The school offers almost all programs you can think of.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It was enter resting after being out of school for a few years
