4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Good learning experiences as well as good experiences with teachers have lead me on a better path than what I was originally going for.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: They offer a numerous amount of classes as well as a filtering system for class times and schedules.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its great compared to other universities. Of course paying a $300 for a class seems reasonable, I don't like spending that much money anyways. But I am investing in my academic career as well my professional career.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It's a great course setting but I found it more bothersome then what many people did. That's a personal opinion.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school I'm going to is mainly for associates and certificates. Many students going there also go tonearn their core classes for a third of the price of a four year.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Teachers are caring and most of the students are there to learn. Its a good overall experience without all the hick-ups prior to classes starting.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: As previously stated, the transfer courses list not being posted is the only down side of our resources. The website is also hard to navigate without help for the first visit.

College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Only problem I've had is that my school does not have adequate transfer credit lists posted for students to compare.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Have not saut career center yet but am in the process of seeking one out for internship.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Going to a community college provides me with a diverse ethnic group as well as an abundance in cultural experiences. Many students are there because it is a smart financial decision before moving to a four year university. They can be hard working with the exception of those who are there because the goverent is subsidizing them for attending, these people, in my personal opinion, only bring down those who are there to learn and are wanting to improve their lives. The teachers at most of the campuses I have been to are there to give back to the community, they want to help their students compared to studying them as in cases in larger universities.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I only took one online course which was for my driver's ed. class. There are computers you can just walk to when ever you are in class to work on. Teachers can be understanding about this. I worked with a teacher over the online course from a different school. The course is easy to go through.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Some of them were friendly but others, not so much.

3 College Senior

Career Services: We were well-informed about our future when we graduate and they do host career days. The alumni network is great.

College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I'm pretty sure high school students don't need to pay.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I actually believe the program that I am in is an excellent program. There are many student services with regards to job opportunities and the classes teach the necessary skills to find a job in the industry.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: academics can be hit or miss. I think its very important to research the professor before taking the class because the professors are definitely not equal.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I love taking online classes. They are incredibly convenient. They are not for everyone as they can be a lot of work, but I have always enjoyed the ones I have taken.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The student body at my school is incredibly diverse. There are young and old students, foreign students, students that are from out of state, students that are local, students that are parents, and even students that are still in high school. I believe my school to be a very accommodating school for everyone.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: My school is making a lot of changes to many of its campuses to accommodate better student centers, athletic centers and campus activities. There are many clubs available to join. For example, there is a graphic design club that I am interested in joining in the fall. This club expands networking within the industry as well as providing traveling opportunities. Some campuses have child care services, although they are not available at my campus yet.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school. It has given me exactly what I need. It has helped me to find my passion and my path. My best experience was actually yesterday. Recently I have been having a hard time in my life. Finding happiness has been particularly difficult as well as finding the perfect career path for myself. I decided to change my major to Graphic Design from Accounting. I felt this was a risk for me because I didn't want to loose interest and change my mind again. Yesterday when I went to class, and I was in a pretty bummed out mood. By the end of the class I was smiling and enjoying myself. I had forgotten all of the stresses of my life for the short time I was in class and that is when I knew I had made the perfect decision for my career path.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Although I am not there yet, I do know that my degree program offers a portfolio class in order to build a portfolio that is acceptable to present to potential employers. At the end of the semester, potential employers are invited to review the student's portfolios and may offer a job or internship. Additionally, my degree program requires students to participate in an internship in which many are posted on the student bulletin boards. There are also clubs that students can get involved in to further network within their degree program.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: All of the frustrations that I have experienced have completely been due to the financial aid process. There is a lot that is unknown and the only trustworthy financial aid office is at the Central Campus which is not the campus that I attend. The people that work in the student services at the campus I attend are rude and not informative. Aside from the financial aid process, all of my classes have been very enjoyable, my degree plan is easily accessible and tracking my progress is not difficult. I like that my school is involved in the community, I appreciate that my school supports the LGBTQ community as well as innovating the campuses to better accommodate the student's needs.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The resources here are amazing. Every semester a speaker comes and talks about how the library and student center are found and how you can access them.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: It makes you feel more independent and responsible for turning in assignments on time. Also it is very convent because you can work from home than coming to class.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I like how in the center of the building there is a fountain that makes me feel relaxed. Also there is lots of color in the building. It makes it feel more vibrant and less dull and depressing if it was all just one color.

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.
