5 College Senior

Student Body: HCC strives to be a place that accepts all kinds of diversity and has achieved at doing so. I personally have had the pleasure of knowing people with different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and I'm glad to have them as friends.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: For most students at HCC you have to seek out the students that have similar interests to you. There is a lot of diversity but students do not seem to interact much outside of the classroom.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: People are nice and friendly but not much social communication going on outside the classroom

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Since HCC is a community college, people from all walks of life are students, whether they're high school kids dual-enrolling, 20-somethings earning a degree, or 50-somethings completing a degree. Students have varying beliefs and backgrounds, but—Presbyterian or Catholic, poor or well-to-do—they work together to succeed in campus clubs, organizations, and classes. Most students can find some interesting venue to share their energies with like-minded students. There's something for everyone, and in a loose, free-to-be-you-and-me community, it is easy to find a comfortable niche.

International students and ethnic minorities are, well, minorities, but they are still well represented and have the same opportunities. Some campus clubs, such as the Black Student Union and National Organization for Women (NOW), are specifically geared toward minorities; there is also the International Club. Students who feel that other minorities could be better represented can request to form a club and get a faculty adviser at the Student Activities Office. Most clubs are open to new members or for guests who want to preview the group before joining. Because of the eclectic mix of students at HCC, there are a wide variety of events, in addition to the clubs, to appeal to a broader range of students.
