3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The academic advisors here at HCC are committed to making sure you have the most balanced, and efficient schedule according to your life outside of class. However, if you play sports for the college or are involved in multiple extracurricular activities, then when those activities are in season it will be very difficult to keep your time balanced and will require much more effort on your part than when those activities are out of season.

Online Courses: I took the online Environmental Biology course at HCC and was taken by surprise at the amount of work needed to do well in the course. If you are very good at time management, it won't be a big deal. However, if you struggle remembering to check online every single day, and procrastinate, the online courses will be a nightmare.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center at HCC provides students with the ability to discuss possible career options and what path is best to take to make any career a reality.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at HCC has been great, the students and teachers are friendly and easy to get along with. Also, the class sizes are relatively small, meaning the professor is able to give more help to everyone and get to know you on a personal level, which really does help. There are plenty of different career paths and degrees offered by HCC and professors/advisors are willing to do everything within their power to help you get that degree.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The various degrees offered at HCC allow almost anyone to pursue their dream career without paying an arm and a leg for it. There are multiple job fairs and transfer college fairs on campus every year, providing students with more opportunities to get internships and scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academics at HCC are very good, the professors explain each topic thoroughly and will take time outside of class to review anything you have trouble with. However, most of the classes do rely on online ways of communications/announcements, so as long as you make sure to check the online announcements for each class every day, it's a great experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hagerstown Community College has a very nice, modern campus, new buildings, and plenty of degree options. For the most part, the professors are very thorough and willing to meet with you in order to elaborate on any topics that you don't fully understand. The students are nice, and making friends is easy with the amount of extracurricular activities provided by HCC.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the professors I have had have been amazing! They all cared about my career goals and me as an individual, and they were great at teaching the subjects. They were clear in explaining everything, and if I had any trouble I was not afraid to ask questions. The class sizes are all quite average, which I am comfortable with.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: One can definitely value from a degree from this school because that is what this school is mostly focused on: careers. I believe employers recruiting on campus is a great way for students to find jobs, especially internships because it gives students significant experience in the field they are interested in.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is the best! It has wonderful professors who care about the students and helps them individually. The professors are almost always available to answer questions, and some actually offer extra credit assignments. I think the student body is also amazing because most of the students that attend this college, as well as the professors that teach, offer help on their own time and I think that is great.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are very nice and they have high expectations for the students. The professors also expect you to come and talk to them if you have a problem.

Overall Experience: Starting here has prepared me for transferring.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love that HCC offers a variety of clubs. I'm trying to start a Love your melon crew on campus and I'm part of an off campus organization as well. I would like to do more that Universities offer. As far as choosing HCC over again if I had to, I'd say I might. I liked how I saved a lot of money, but I really want to attend the University of Maryland. UMD is by far my dream school and I'm trying really hard to get in. I've raised my GPA a fair amount and I've become more diverse as a student but I still don't know if it's enough. I feel as if I would've applied right from high school that I would've had a better chance. Therefore I'm not entirely sure if I'd go to HCC again just to save money because now my chances of attending my dream school are slim to none.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Sometimes you have to park far away because of how crowded some of the classes get. This is the only college I've ever been to so I can't necessarily compare this college to any others. The students that attend there are very nice and helpful and so are the professors. There is an amble amount of help you can receive, such as free tutoring and the professors try to explain the lesson in a way you can really understand.

Overall Experience: After a year and a half at the University of Phoenix, I decided to go to a community college. Thankfully more than half my credits transferred. Most everything is online at the college making it easy to stay in touch.

Academic Experience: HCC has amazing science equipment (spectroscopy, microscopy, etc) that you wouldn't expect to find in a community college.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Community college definitely has its perks. It's cheaper than a four-year school and is often a lot closer, offering a lot of the same courses students can apply to a degree if they transfer. Hagerstown Community College definitely helps students achieve both personal and academic goals. With a wide range of both credit and non-credit courses—including "skill-building" courses for personal enrichment—there is plenty to choose from. The school offers services such as the College for Kids, Teen Parent Program, and child care in the Children's Learning Center, making it easy for Junior to get in on the experience, too, while offering Mom and Dad a break.

HCC offers such a wide variety of classes that it makes it easy to pick the courses necessary for a degree or even for personal enrichment. This helps prepare students for a future career or to succeed even more at a current one. Professors are open to questions and suggestions, offering flexibility to accommodate students' needs and, often, extra credit coursework to make up for lost participation or assignment points.  While working on group projects can sometimes be difficult (since everyone lives off campus), the school has several locations on campus where groups can meet in between classes or over lunch. New renovations are underway that will make the campus even more accessible to students and help enrich their overall experience.
