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.

3 College Senior

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

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.

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.

Students at Houston Community College embrace diversity and support each other despite differences in racial, economic, and social backgrounds. There is a LGBT group on campus, alongside many academic, study, and religious clubs and organizations. The average student works part-time or full-time to help pay tuition and school-related fees. Students are willing to help each other in group projects and support each other in class. Many international students study within the Southwest region and have no trouble finding help from American students. With so much diversity, classmates often get along and learn new things from one another. Class discussions run smoothly and sometimes the teachers have to stop the students from continuing debates for too long. Students can sometimes be found speaking to each other in foreign languages, and cultural food and languages are shared are celebrated at certain times of the year by HCC clubs and organizations.

Phi Theta Kappa, HCC Athletics, Student Government, Science Club, and Math Club all have unique and good reviews. Not too many students join clubs, but it is very easy to start one if you are interested. All you need to do is fill out some paperwork, find a sponsor within that area, and select officers, and everything else will fall into place.
