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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Houston Community College students have access to the athletic centers on surrounding campuses. There are many state-of-the-art facilities that are new or recently renovated. The HCC library system is very convenient; students can return books on any campus. Libraries open early and close late to provide time for all students. The 24/7 database for research and information is very convenient, and students can access if off campus. The New Learning Web sit has been updated recently and HCC is very timely in delivering automated voicemail messages and important information. The technical support is outstanding since it's available 24/7 as well.

Students can bring their own computers to campus, and WiFi is offered. HCC has plenty of places for students to sit and study, including cafeterias and lounging couches. School labs are very resourceful for many students, especially international students.  The network and software are updated often so they are usually reliable. The campuses are well kept by maintenance staff who are very friendly.
