4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There were such a wide variety of class times available, it was fairly easy to schedule my classes around my work schedule. The classes that I was not able to schedule around my work, I took the online version which provided me with the same exact knowledge but it was more convenient for me to take it online. A few of the classes that I wanted to take were not available online, and I was not able to take them on campus because of my work schedule, so I was not able to take them.

Online Courses: The online classes are a wonderful thing for people who can not necessarily make it to campus everyday for the live classes. The opportunities that are given for student to student interaction are wonderful and they help out with the class as well. Most assignments were weekly things so you had the entire week to work on the assignments. The workload was a little bit bigger because you are not having that lecture time so you are reading more, and discussing more online than you would in class, but overall they get really in depth with their topics and you can learn a lot from them.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The post-grad services at my school are great. Upon graduating I was emailed by the alumni association and they keep me updated on all of the different alumni activities and social activities that are going on.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are average sized which is nice because there are not an overload of students which means that the professor actually knows your name and gets to know you on a personal level and helps you learn better. There are so many different courses available that you would always have interesting classes to look forward to. The professors really took the time to engage with their classes and were always easily reachable if you ever had any questions.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Getting a degree from this school is so helpful, having a degree makes it easier to transfer to a four year college. There are always other four year colleges on campus interacting with the students, providing them with information about their schools, and HCC encourages it! They push you to visit other schools because they want you to transfer on and continue your education. There are so many different resources available to students including services for veterans who attend the school, which is a wonderful thing.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: As a Liberal Arts Major, I had the option to take whatever classes I wanted which was very nice because I was open to taking anything I wanted and it ultimately led me to choose my current major program. Having the opportunity to choose what I could take and also having the option to take classes on campus or online was very helpful as well because going to school full time and working full time is not an easy thing to do.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Holyoke Community College is a great school. It has such a diverse student body and teaching staff. There are many different extracurricular activities and clubs that you can join, and if there is a club that you want to start, they encourage you to do so. The professors are nice and helpful and want to see you succeed. If you're looking for a school to start your college experience, definitely consider HCC as one of your choices.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The learning communities make it easy to knock out two requirements in one class. The wide variety of time frames is very good especially if you have a part time job.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professor's are easy to contact. They respond and help out with anything you need on the course material and are very understanding. They make the student feel comfortable and I think that really helps with the learning process.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't taken part in the career center activities or internships at my school but from what I hear it give a ton of experience and skills for whatever career one may go to.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I've heard nothing but great things about the art department and it shows not just with the work but the staff is awesome. Even the professor's that you've never met are friendly.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers I've had are great and work well with me. They're very understanding and make learning fun and interesting.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: All of the classes I have taken both on campus and online have transferred toward my bachelor's degree.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have experienced a lot of good and bad with online courses at HCC. Some professors are very good at interacting with the class and encouraging hard work. Others seem to leave students on their own and offer no help or advice.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Career services does a really good job reaching out to students as well as encouraging students to go for help. Career services even posts really great opportunities online which is very beneficial.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, course work can be fun, a god variety of courses, and some of the professors are very good at what they do.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Because the degrees offered are only associates degrees, they only get students so far. In todays day, associates degrees are becoming more and more useless. The career center is very helpful especially because they often extend office hours in favor of students.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: At the community college, nobody knows what air traffic control is. Everyone who I talk to about my major is completely shocked because there is such a limited number of students majoring specifically in air traffic management. Internships and job opportunities are unavailable because the career is so specific which is why I choose to work at a custodian bank instead.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Holyoke Community College is really what students make of it. I tried to go in, get my work done, and leave. I find that there are students there who act as if they are in high school and are choosing to just skip class. If students put in the effort, it is completely worth it.

2 College Junior

Career Services: Although, I have not graduated from this college yet I can say I am not excited to have this college on my record.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors are really good, however many have views and try to influence students, especially the Sociology and Philosophy professors. They do not allow open conversation but only want one specific view. They try to progress their agenda that America is bad and that we need to further liberal views/policies in Government. Basically, Government is the answer to our pressing problems of today.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: First and foremost, the college does not require internships for most of their degree programs. Secondly, the staff/professors have no clue on what career path a student should take. Employers do not recruit because the students have no set goals.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Absolutely no internship opportunities and the staff have no/little advising suggestions. It's all on the students.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall it's fairly bad. They want you to take courses that don't even apply to your field of study. It's a waste of time and money. The students are relatively liberal and very bizarre.

Online Courses: felt neutral classes online are fast-paced though
