4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The experience at my school has been amazing! I love it here. The staff, athletic and non-athletic, are super helpful and try and satisfy your needs and try and make every situation work.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I am not in an online course at the moment but some of my college classmates are and they don't mind it. The work load is not that overbearing and the professors try and help you along with it if you are ever in need of assistance.

4 College Junior

Career Services: This is a Junior College, the school works exceptionally hard to try and transfer you to the school you want to go. The staff goes the extra mile to try and get you all the requirements for you to transfer.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class sizes are like a normal high school size, not to big but not too small. The professors care about your education but don't care at the same time. They want you to succeed, but if your not showing up to class and are not doing any of the work then they are going to fail you. The class styles are pretty laid back and not overwhelmingly stressful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is always something going on almost everyday. Whether that is something to get involved in, jobs/internships, voting, food! There is almost always free food or little markets that go on everyday for college students to access.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academic program is great, the workload depends on how many classes your wanting to take; but it's like any school work it's due the next time you come to class or at the end of the week. Facilities are very nice and are new/old; meaning they are old is a way that they are fixing them to becoming new. Internship/job opportunities are easy to find and they help you to find a job that you want.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is a great starting point to get your general education done. It's not a big university, but what's unique about this school is the academic/professor field. They are helpful and willing to get your on the right track for a good education, also they help you get ready and prepared for the next level.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: My major courses are online and they have been a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who is disciplined enough to maintain their school schedule. Great experience overall

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: The alumni network consists of people that I have grew up around in my community. The majority of people who attend AHC are very supportive of their community which leads to increasing enrollment year after year. The job prospects vary based on field of study and logistics but the career center helps with everything.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe I explained this well in the first module.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from anywhere is valuable but a degree from AHC affords me many opportunities to transfer or jump into the workforce if I would like to. However, I plan on transferring which requires a AA but AHC offers an AA-T which has more rigorous course work and bumps a students GPA by .2 points. The career center works closely with students to help them with their application and find jobs if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I only rate the school as such because a lot of the English course load is online due to the lack of English majors at the school. It makes sense that the professors would like to avoid courses with six students in their classes. But this only applies to the major course work which doesn't include the 101's and 102's. The faculty takes interests in their students and one will develop a great relationship with their professors due to their flexibility with the courses they teach.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is the best in my opinion because it is right in my hometown. It is easily accessible and very convenient for everybody who lives in town. The courses are very good but can be challenging as one gets into their major course work. The professors are well educated in their fields with many degrees and/or credentials to their names. The school's faculty is very courteous and will not shy away from going above and beyond their calls of duty. For these reason and more, I believe that my school is well deserving of this rating.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: They don't force you to take a specific set of classes.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It's probably just like you would find at any other school.

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: There aren't very many post-grad services at the school. There is a university transfer center.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of options for classes. Some classes are only offered during a few time frames.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are great resources for any career. However, compared to community colleges in Oregon, this college lacks in the amount of music classes offered.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It has been a great academic experience. All my teachers genuinely care about me.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the school but, I have not taken many classes so I cannot give a full review. The teachers I have had have been very helpful and have been very fun.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: It isn't as user friendly as I would hope. I can navigate online courses with no issue, however I am very familiar with computers. My brother, however, hates taking online courses as he find it extremely difficult to even register for courses. I feel that the online course software Blackboard, is slightly out of date. I wish it was more user friendly and easier to navigate through the different courses one is enrolled in, and that it would be easier to interact with other students rather than scrolling endlessly though board posts.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes at decent, most professors care about their students but some just expect them to read the book and know the material with no extra explanation during lecture hours.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Due to the fact that Hancock has a campus in both Santa Maria and Lompoc, there's opportunity for a lot of flexibility for courses. Most Hancock credits will be applicable for all colleges in California.

Considering I plan on transferring to an out of state university, transferring will be more difficult for me.

Online Courses: Online courses are great if you have a good instructor. Due to the fact that these classes aren't held on campus, you're essentially responsible for your future. Online classes are taught through blackboard and the workload varies on the professor. I've had online classes that require up to 48 hours of work a week and online classes that assign as little as 6 hours of homework a week. Registration for online classes are very easy, interaction and communication in online courses depends on the professor and the course you're taking. Most online professors require a discussion board for each chapter and a response to two peers. As long as you hold yourself accountable and manage your time properly, online course can be very easy.
