3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I think every student feels that they struggle at least once in a class but in the end it's a lesson to learn that whatever you are learning is going to benefit you in your career.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't heard any of this offered here.

College Senior

Academic Experience: I am just taking my basic courses at Houston Community College and will than take my main class when I transfer to a university.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It helps me get my classes paid as a full time student.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wish there would be more actives done here.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The librarians are awesome and super helpful, but the library's computer system is as awful as most of the technology in this place. There are very small eating areas and really no place for privacy or quiet study time.

Academic Experience: I am still taking prerequisites to get into the nursing program.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: HCC offers a basic core curriculum and transfer to the Coleman Health College to earn an Associate's Degree of Nursing.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is a nightmare. All of the advisers and employees meant to help I have met are seriously underqualified. Twice I have had the advising office lose my paperwork and had to come in again to resubmit my driver's license to be scanned. My advice for any administrative interaction you have is to get copies of everything and have the employee date and initial or sign the documents.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body at HCC is highly diverse. There are many races, mixed race students, religious students, and different personalities all sharing space with little conflict. I have seen multiple gay or lesbian couples and a few transitioning or genderqueer students and never once seen them be harassed or treated as if they were abnormal.

2 College Junior

Career Services: The advisory board is a hot mess, in my opinion. It's hard to track down an adviser, appointments take forever, there is no dedicated adviser after your first semester, and their computer system is a nightmare.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hands-down, my favorite experience has been some of my professors. Dr. Doris Price, who teaches Sociology; Dr. Lori Lehtola, who teaches History; Miss Shannon Baranski, who teaches Psychology; Miss Guoji Leung, who teaches math are some of my favorite teachers. The best thing about community college is small, maximum of thirty-person classes. It is much easier to have a relationship with your professor and fellow students in a more intimate atmosphere. The campuses aren't all that great -- no proper cafeteria, no hot food unless you buy something frozen and microwave it, no fresh fruit or vegetables to be had -- but I would definitely choose HCC again.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Houston Community College has multiple campuses, but the Southwest college branches I attend are small and underdeveloped. The landscaping is nice but classrooms are tightly packed. The desks are tiny plastic things with no space to put more than a thin notebook, when most classes are best served by juggling a notebook, textbook, and laptop. The one-on-one teacher / student interaction is great, and the reason I'm mostly happy with the school system; it's the small things that irk me. There's no proper cafeteria at most campuses. Food choices are unhealthy processed food and "healthy" processed food that's just as bad for you, if not as fattening. The campus stores close around 6pm, while the campuses themselves stay open until 10pm. If you're taking night classes or rush to school from work after that, you'd better pack a meal or risk paying inflated prices at snack machines.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: the library is a good size. It's very easy to transfer books from different campuses.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It has been very easy to get to class. The only hassles I have come across is the parking.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am majoring in criminal justic. They have a few classes for it but not many. There is no specific facility for it

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The workload is good not to much. The registration process is easy. They offer free tutors for finals.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's alright. It is not impressive

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: We gave a great student diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There are many classes offered so I do not have issues working around my time but as a full time studsnt, it is a bit overwhelming.

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I took one online course so far and had the worst experience with it. My professor just had power points up and never posted anything new. I never got any feedback on any of my work and any time I emailed him, I got a reply several days later (mini-session).

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There's really not much to say here. I like the library because it's pretty big and quiet.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: We have different fairs and clubs. There is not really too much going on except for people trying to get an education.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is much more affordable than other universities.

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.
