I am from a small town and chose to go to a community college in that small town to avoid big city life. It is perfect for our small community but does not offer a lot of laving things life a big city community college might have.

I have been fortunate enough to have teachers who are willing to go above and beyond to help their students succeed. My art teacher was extremely passionate in teaching his subject which was very refreshing to see and made me appreciate teachers such as him, who have such a passion for their subjects and want to share all of their knowledge with their students. My math teacher would teach us 6 hours a week and still have a designated time before classes each week to help students in the library who were struggling with the homework software. He told us that teaching was his secondary job, and it made me appreciate him so much more that he was willing to sacrifice time away from his family to help his students with the material.

Hancock is a great starting point for students looking to go off to college and transfer. Not only are the classes affordable but the school has various resources to help with students (i.e. Math center, writing lab, library, study groups, etc.) Due to it being a community college, the students attending there aren't particularly social. A majority of them attended high school together, are involved in sports or just trying to focus on their education. The classes there aren't great, you'll get a few amazing teachers here and there but there are also a lot of professors who aren't very interested in teaching. I've had a few classes in which I had to teach myself or drop the class due to lack of participation on the instructors part. I highly recommend looking up your future instructors on ratemyprofessor.com; although all of them aren't rated, it will save you a lot of heartache. Some majors are given more attention compared to others, being a business administration major the amount of business staff is limited. My most difficult courses thus far have been my major courses, primarily due to the lack of staff available to teach the courses I need. My biggest piece of advice is to follow the DegreeWorks program on MyHancock before you follow the counselors instructions. Had I followed this program rather than the advice from some of the counselors it's very likely I would be transferring this upcoming fall rather than next fall. Don't settle with the advice of just one counselor, I highly recommend consulting at least 2 different ones when it comes to your transfer plan. All in all, Hancock has it's ups and downs. It's a great way to baby step your way into the life of a responsible college student. Best of luck, and never give up on your dreams. Always remember that so far you've survived 100% of your worst days, you're doing great.
