The more semesters I've completed at HCC, the more I began to love it there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The more you get involved with student activities, the more you'll enjoy your time there. I could start over, I would do it again at HCC!

I transferred from Goodwin College which is smaller. I find that this institution has a lot to offer but they may be held back due to lack of resources . I like the effort put into advising students about courses. and registration. It makes life much easier for the transition process. If you are serious about your academics the professors are really helpful. The tutoring section of the college needs improvement though . The environment could also get a facelift. After all we are proud to be their everyday, so a lot of trees and beautiful flowers would compliment the lovely architecture of the college.

Some of the things that I loved about my academic experience was the fact that my art professors had their students exposed to the different types of artists, art forms, etc. There was a few things that I disagreed with as far as the necessary materials needed for class, and yet most of the materials never was used for the entire semester. A lot of the things they asked for us to get were too overpriced. Since I come from a family with a struggling financial issue, I had to work to get these overpriced materials. The facility regarding the art program is actually small, but Housatonic will be getting their own art building. The workload wasn't too bad; it's very much doable if you're always on top of your art homework. However, what really made their art curriculum good is the professors. Amazing staff, and they really go out of their way to help students.
