My favorite experience at HACC is my Microbiology lab. I love learning hands-on, and being able to actually do the work myself. There is a lot of materials available for a great deal of learning!
I did have one bad experience at HACC. I took Western Civilizations II with Professor McCoy. This class was boring, did not challenge me, the professor did not know how to lecture and instead put a DVD of someone else lecturing, grade was based solely on two tests, and the teacher gave the answers to the tests in class the weeks before the test. It was embarrassingly easy. I was not impressed by this professor!

Harrisburg Area Community College Experience – Harrisburg Area Community College is a decent school, and your experience can mostly depend on the professor ho teaches the class. I found through outside resources how to get past that little problem. I used ratemyprofessor.com as a guide to find what teacher best suited me, and who to avoid completely. I avoided some pretty bad ones. The school itself is very inexpensive compared to a university, and has on-campus work opportunities. HACC has a very diverse group of a students. My high school wasn't, and it was an eye opener in a good way. Diversity is really something you can't avoid at HACC, and I believe that is healthy for everyone. I also really enjoy the clubs here fun by students! My favorite is HACC JACC, which is focused on Japanese Anime, and Culture. I still attend this school, and I want to stay here!

I am a dental hygiene major, and this major consumes most, if not all of your time. I knew going into this program that it would be very intense and stressful, as I feel all healthcare professions are. You must be dedicated to the profession and willing to sacrifice in order to be successful! The work load is very intense, and the clinical aspect is the most difficult and overwhelming. You must be organized as well. There are plenty of job opportunities once you graduate with a degree which is one of the main reasons why I chose this profession.
