3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am still trying to get into one of the restricted entry programs. I made it into the top 50 of 2 programs but did not get into either one (max: 18 students / year) due to my inability to get all A's (being a single mother to 2 high needs, developmentally delayed, on the autism spectrum boys, not in school or day care = very difficult to do as well as I'd liked). I believe the programs are very good, however, there is nothing in place for internship / job opportunity assistance (job searching, internship, networking assistance).

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: This school is known for it's nursing program (new facilities) but also has a sought after dental hygiene program and other allied health careers. It also has on campus university transfer opportunities. Most (but not all) instructors are very good. The curriculum is varied / vast. There are many online and hybrid class options (I wish there were a few more for those of us with children or jobs we need to work around).

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Not effectively staffed. Not very helpful for everyone. It exists, but could be better.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As most schools (just like bosses at jobs) there are some really good professors / instructors and some not so good. I find if you talk to enough students, you get a good idea who the better instructors are. It's not always those who have been there the longest, but some of those who have been there a long time do happen to be very good. Different teachers have different teaching styles and expectations.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish there were more opportunities for networking or job fairs or recruiters on campus or even online, especially for the restricted / limited entry programs. I think with all of the extra time / effort / energy / and fees for those programs, there should be some job seeking assistance offered, but there is not. Once a year there is a "job fair" but it's more for students to work while in school, not for graduating students finding a job using their new degrees / education.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: As a community college, the student body is fairly diverse as far as age of students, walks of life, career goals, and even somewhat ethnically. I would say the student body is mostly a reflection of the state of Oregon (about 80% - 85% Caucasian).

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My school's tuition is comparatively low. However, I was very unhappy with new law / restrictions on federal financial aid. As I already have an general studies associates degree (10 years old), of which I paid for myself out of pocket (no loans, no scholarships, no grants) I was put in a "maximum time frame appeal" for too many credits, when I applied for financial aid as a returning, non-traditional student. Although others get grants and loans, I was only eligible for an unsubsidized loan (even though I live below the poverty line with my 2 young boys). I understand that this is due to former students defaulting on their education loans or being life long students getting grants / financial aid, but my credits were over 10 years old and most no longer valid for my intended major as they were more than 7 years old. I had to retake many classes and take classes that I've never taken before for my intended major (prerequisites). My second year, I still have a few more classes to take to transfer to a 4 year university and I am no longer eligible for ANY federal financial aid (grants or loans)! All because I have an old, outdated, "general studies" associates degree that I paid for myself with no government assistance.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: If you can help it (if there is any other way to schedule) I recommend NOT taking online 200 level science classes! Very difficult to get good grades. Sometimes, recorded lectures were difficult to follow, especially when students are asking questions that were not clearly recorded, yet answered by instructor without repeating question(s). Difficult to keep up fast pace. Also, peer to peer relationships and student / instructor relationships are very weak.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Most planned campus activities took place during my core classes (science / math) mid day so I could not attend, but there were weekly events.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Trying to schedule needed prerequisite classes is sometimes difficult, as some overlap and you must choose one over another. Wish a few more classes were available online.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: As an art major I take pride in the gallery and the art that is hung in the student union and changed up every month or so. The bathrooms are clean and rarely run out of bare necessities. I love sitting with my friends in the student union between classes and the food offered is pretty good.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Wireless access is easy but the speed is so slow because so many students are using it at any given hour. Printing is a hassle and its 5 cents per page so I try to print at home only. There are a great deal of computer labs and computers in the library but I do all my online work on my laptop because I have a faster connection and I prefer a cozier environment for doing school work.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't use most campus aesthetics but the library has a lot of resources as does the bookstore which are very crowded the first few weeks of each term. There are a lot of events that go on in the student union which is typically a very relaxing environment where people hang out, play cards, do school work, play the piano. . . but the events usually send the usual crowd running unless there's free stuff involved.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body is very diverse. There are a lot of events that celebrate different cultures. I don't hear a whole lot about religion. Most students seem pretty liberal to me but I don't see many debates or discussions.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I've had a fairly broad range of flexibility among teachers but most are very generous and understanding.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I just barely started my first online course ever. It's gonna be a challenge but it seems fairly straight forward and very interactive.

Career Services: I'm sure it's great but I haven't actually used all the resources at my school, however I've heard good things about the career counselors from teachers and good things about the alumni through mail offering scholarships if I join. Several jobs are available on campus like cashiers, cooks, baristas, etc.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I pay for tuition online. I don't know much about financial aid but for those who use it they have a MHCC Card to put their money on which is convenient. I can definitely say the value of education is worth what I paid. It has been worth more than High School ever was. All I have for tips on financial aid is apply early. I wasn't even offered loans til my second term which by that time I'd already paid tuition.

Facilities: Mt. Hood has a very nice campus where you actually have a great view of the mountain on sunny days. There is no housing on or off campus as it is a community college, but the scenery is great.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken several online courses through MHCC and have found them all to be very convenient because you can do your assignments on your own time and you receive the same type of education that you would in person.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall academic experience has been good, and you definitely get what you pay for, but it is not the same social experience that you would receive from a 4 year institution as most people just come to their classes and then leave.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is great because it’s a community college, so students are able to complete their general undergraduate requirements at a much lower price.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My academic experience has been great, I have learned a lot and will take away a good deal of knowledge. I am currently majoring in education and the curriculum is fun and challenging at the same time.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Professors at Mt. Hood are great, they all have a genuine interest in their students and what they teach. The workload is rough but not unbearable, and the registration process is easy and convenient.
