4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everything seems to mean that this community college is equip with the right educational tools to conduct learning. There is a little bit of motivation from faculty but could use more, such as extended hours of study areas and libraries.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Normal areas and have been progressively better and still under construction.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't had any online courses.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Haven't had the pleasure to visiting their office for any services.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The college has guidelines that are pretty clear and understandable. The website as well as financial office has resources and pamphlets for student and parents to review and step-by-step instruction on what needs to be done.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Beginning term of my new major of biological studies with emphasis in Chemistry and Biochemistry. When looking into what area of academics you want the school and it's faculty uses study grounds, TA's and work study to help with the learning process. The student portal that is used for learning is easy and has a family interface when it has labs and other tools to help with the students progress in learning.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The educational institute has it's own defaulted portal and study programs for students that want to learn. Professors and others encourage me and other student in class to use the student center to check in and see what study program is available. The college I am attending also has departmental individual study programs for students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The two year community college has wonderful resources in and around campus. No matter where you go on campus students and faculty members communicate and pin up flyers and have week meetings or events to establish school spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are many place that students can go to, no matter what campus around the houston area you'll be able to use computers, use library for study rooms, and printing stations where student can print out homework or labs to help facilitate learning in a classroom environment.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid was very helpful financially. It covered all of my classes and I had remaining money for my books.

College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did not apply for financial aid so I cannot answer that portion of the question. I feel like I have earned the value of education that I have paid for. My teachers are knowledgeable for the most part in their field of study.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: HCC is very cheap and close to home. I think attending a community college is a wise decision for getting the basics out of the way. A lot of my friends from middle and high school attend school with me, so it has made the experience positive. HCC just feels like high school all over again for me. The classes typically have about 30 students, teachers take attendance, they do not like the use of laptops and cellphones in class, and a part of the student body makes me question their maturity level.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The academic programs are great, I am a member of Sigma Alpha Pi and I love it. There is not much of a social scene within the school, unless you have friends from highschool. The facilities are decent.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the classes and locations has been fairly easy. I have been able to work around my work schedules for the past two years. I also did not have to drive too far, so that was nice. I wish that there was more foreign languages that were available. It is hard to find one that works for me. I am still waiting to see if all of my credits will transfer.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I am not too familiar with this area. HCC does host quite a bit of job fairs though.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school has a lot of diversity. In any classroom, there is a member of every ethnicity. We have super geeky people as well as the "cool kids." It honestly reminds me of high school. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help, so I really enjoy that aspect.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I did not take an online course with Houston Community College.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am not 100% sure on my major, but I have been working on my associates for the past two years. The workload is very manageable.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors are fantastic. It is obvious that they care for their job and they are very motivating for the most part. Registering for classes at HCC is the most frustrating thing on the planet. It only works on certain browsers, if you go to too many different pages in a quick time you have to log out and log back in, and you have to be very specific when searching for items. The special study options would have to be the multiple places there are to study on and around the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We have a great, fully stocked library. The library also has study rooms and computers, so it is a great place to go in between classes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Our computer lab is a decent size. The computers work to its full capacity and the printer does its job.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I like the fact that it helped me get started and save some money before continuing my education with my core classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Sometimes they are helpful, but more times than others they are really rude. I've had many bad experiences where I've tried to talk to an employee with questions and they didn't help at all and were very rude as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They're library is spacious. They have desk and private rooms if you need a quite space to study before class.

1 College Student

Career Services: sure i mean why not

Having a smaller student body as compared to a four-year university is great for classmate interaction, and office appointments with professors aren't as hard to get. Lots of international students are able to find help in the Southwest region and have been able to learn English with HCC's classes. The library, computers, and other campus resources are abundant and useful during study hours. Career Services provides plenty of career days with vendors visiting every month to seek new student employees. Staff members are very polite and willing to help students plan their future careers, and the faculty has a great reputation. Students are always studying on campus or participating in one of the many study groups/tutoring sessions available. School policies are reasonable, and there is enough money from donations and the FAFSA to help students fund their education. At Houston Community College, students feel like they belong, can make solid business contacts, and are helpful with one another.
