4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Don't let people fool you about community college, you can learn many things there and get your degree just like going to a university. Not only is it a cheaper tuition and it is closer to home. it has a nice and educational environment. It's a place that actually i looking forward to learning and meeting all kinds of people. I definitely enjoyed listening to professors lectures and they taking the time to ensure that we understand the topic. I definitely liked how everyone was friendly towards all people who went to school and worked there. It a community where people look out for each other even if you are a stranger.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy HCC because the class sizes are small and it enables me and other students to learn better, plus school is affordable. However, the campus life isn't so lively at HCC, and although some students would prefer having the college experience, I don't really mind going to class and then continuing on with my day. Nonetheless, if I did have to choose where I would attend college again, I would still pick Hillsborough Community College due to how affordable school is, the hands on learning I receive in class, and the amount of privacy the campus gives me.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: School is always going to be school, but there are things to do to make the experience a lot better. HCC's campus has all of the amenities to help its students succeed from the counselors to the tutoring and even the bookstore is great. Everything is clean and cut. There is plenty of help if you need it, and the teachers are great. All the staff wants here is your success.The students are friendly and it's easy to navigate the campus. All in all, it's a great school and I would definitely recommend it to student's looking for an alternative to going straight to a university.

Overall Experience: This is my first year, third semester at this school. I'm mostly an off-campus based student, but taking the courses online allows me to work at my own pace, as well as save lots of time and money attending on campus. I've gone to the school for registration and to take one course. The overall environment is decent, not too noisy or crowded.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students agree that their overall experience at Hillsborough College has been a good one. HCC has several comprehensive academic programs, and the great thing about being enrolled in specified programs is usually you have a small roster of professors who teach all of the required classes. That way, you’re able to build rapport with those professors and establish a great working relationship.

Students rely on the ability to mix and match their classes each semester, with some classes on campus and some distance learning (online) classes. Doing so gives them the ability to take care of their responsibilities at home with their families and still get all of their school work completed. Most of the faculty at HCC consider their students to be an extension of their family and are committed to making their success a reality. They offer the students guidance and support so that the students never feel alone in the process.

So, whether you go to HCC to perfect a skill or complete an entire program, you’ll find that the school can be your constant home for learning. Students there highly recommend HCC to anyone, of any age, who is interested in making an investment toward their future!
