3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My schedule gets messed up every semester. I say I want this and this but then I have to correct them to get the classes I need.

3 College Junior

Student Body: the school is predominantly black so everything seems to revolve around that. It seems like student diversity is okay but either African American or more geeky.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library is pretty nice but smells really musty.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not looked into those options yet. But I will.

College Junior

Student Body: I do not start at Halifax Community College until Fall 2014.

College Junior

Academic Experience: I just got accepted into the RN program at Halifax Community College. Therefore, I have not yet to see how things run in that facility

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Registering for class was easy. The hardest part was finding out information about private loans.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The admissions office is ok but they seem a little "too" busy to help. Alot of things I had to go from person to person

Academic Flexibility: Some days with classes I can schedule it around my life as a mother and worker, but then others it's just not possible. You will have some teachers who will work with you, but then others who will not bend.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I wish there was more diversity on campus, because mainly all we are introduced to are those who went to high school with.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I haven't really spoken to career services yet, so I'm not quite sure.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: For the most part my online class experience has been terrific, but the only problem I have had was taking a course and my teacher gave us the wrong book, so she assigned pages and work to do and nearly failed the class. It took weeks for her to finally realize her mistake, though we had constantly told her since day one.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Honestly, I wish campus resources were more helpful. I could email and call someone from financial aid, dean of students or registrar and it will take days and sometimes weeks to get a response. By then the problem has come and gone and I'm often left in the dark.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: No matter where you are on campus, you have WiFi and access to computers and printers.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The student life, though its a community college,we strive to have a huge student life where just like on a university campus we make life long friends.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: My teachers are great and they make it worth while being a student.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The teachers work with you one-on-one, after school hours and getting to make a life-time bond with them is terrific. They have been references for jobs and internships for me and plenty of other students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I had gotten sick and was hospitalized and even with proper paperwork they weren't willing to work with me in regards to my financial aid. I asked could they let me pay it out of my financial aid refund, they money that I owe but they told me they don't know. I have been trying to re-enroll since spring of 2014 and haven't gotten a answer as to what I can do.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professors are top notch. Some noteworthy mentions as of Summer 2014:

Derek Lewis: History/Culture

Sandra Wheden: Public Speaking

Johnny Rascoe: Adobe Flash

Emmanuel Obi: Networking/Computer Science

Charles Wilkinson: English


Class registration is easy. See your advisor to get started, then register yourself online in later semesters.


The library provides tutors if you need help. Seriously, ask for help people!

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The CIT and Networking degrees required a lot of technical classes that rearrange the way you think.

On campus classes are ultimately tougher than online.

Work study on campus is one of the best things you can do during your time here to earn money and experience. Especially for those in the IT field.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everyone in Financial Aid works to get you the most you can have and monitors your progress, or lack thereof, to be able to earn more. A great bunch of people.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: HCC makes continuing strides to be able to be seen as more than a glorified high school.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Teachers will allow students every opportunity to excel in their classes, provided the student is willing to work. Ingenuity means a lot here.

2 College Senior

Career Services: There are not many jobs around this area so it is hard for anyone to find themselves work, let alone rookie students.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The Wellness Center is open to students for a decent amount of time. It is a small facility so it can only be used when no classes are going on down there.

The library and student center helps out with whatever they can, and will help to find someone who can help if something is beyond their ability to teach.

Campus activities are few and far between.

The campus is kept looking pretty year round, inside and out.
