4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm so glad I was able to find HCC for my Audio Engineering degree. my only other options were Texas State, which only allowed 9 people into their program each year; and the Art Institute, which had a tuition of 90,000. Although I did have to move far from home to come here (I'm originally from San Antonio), I really love it here and i wouldn't have done anything differently.

Overall Experience: So far school has been challenging, but very helpful in aiding my future. I have had the pleasure of meeting new people and establishing connections, that I believe will also aid me in the future. The campus however, is not what I am accustomed to, but it has everything I need for success.

Overall Experience: If it wasn't for Houston Community College, I would be attending college. I was able to pay for all of my tuition, books, bus fare and gas with the need-based grants I received. Their tuition is extremely affordable. The classes are of higher quality than I had expected. I felt like every one of my professors care about me and want me to succeed. I've had professors offer to help with planning my next semester and filling out transfer applications.

The student life is fairly good for a community college. I took free boxing lessons on campus, they offer many other fitness classes as well. I joined the school newspaper staff of the was able to publish my writing. I was even assigned an interview with Kevin Hart and Josh Gad during my first semester working for The Egalitarian! I also enjoined attending other club meetings like the psychology club.

One of my favorite experiences was when my geology professor Dr. Qureshi hosted a World Water Day conference. He brought in U.N. representatives, a Coast Guard Captain, engineers and two U.S. Congressmen to speak to students about the environment and water conservation. Every member of my geology class presented their own research on a particular U.N. conservation goal at the conference, I spoke about population. I helped introduce the speakers and I participated in the interview for HCC Stafford TV's special on the event.

Everyone on campus is really friendly. I've made lots of friends. The only downside is some student have the "it's not Harvard" syndrome and bad-mouth the community college a lot. I ignore them. There are many more students like myself who are excited to simply be going to college and to be transferring to a University soon.

If I would do it over, I would have applied for the Honors College at Central. I wish I would have know about it!

Overall Experience: Getting started is a bit confusing but once you get going its an amazing experience. After your first initial registration the rest is easy as far as setting up your classes. I really like how HCC is really helpful and definitely resourceful with anything you may need. I will continue my education here at Hcc. Also, they have many different locations which makes is convenient.

Overall Experience: Overall, I have had a really good experience. Probably due to the fact that I made new friends and the classes here are really making me learn new things and most of the professors are there to help you out.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: HCC provides opportunity for those who seek certain degree plans and offers plenty of classes to choose from. I personally enjoy HCC because of the accessibility of times and locations you can choose from.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I moved here from another state, so i was not sure what to expect. However, the enrollment, administration and financial aid clerks helped me with registering, answering any questions and guiding me through the process.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's your typical college experience minus campus living. You meet bright new people of all ages that you can sit and have intelligent conversations with in between classes. The school is extremely diverse in every way so you'll definitely meet some interesting people. The professors are passionate about what they teach and are just as challenging and effective as you would find in any other college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I've finished my first year successfully and the HCC Northwest location and I can't help show off the friendly staff and counselors. When you're new you will always have unanswered questions whether its about FAFSA or just your classes in general and the advisers at our campus have always been nothing but helpful.

Overall Experience: The great thing about going to community college first is that I got to save a lot of money my first two years. The classrooms are way smaller so it's easier to get help from instructor.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: not what i would have imagined college to be like, no one really explains to you all the things available to you as a student. the professors are nice and the ones i've taken really do care for the student

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Having a smaller student body as compared to a four-year university is great for classmate interaction, and office appointments with professors aren't as hard to get. Lots of international students are able to find help in the Southwest region and have been able to learn English with HCC's classes. The library, computers, and other campus resources are abundant and useful during study hours. Career Services provides plenty of career days with vendors visiting every month to seek new student employees. Staff members are very polite and willing to help students plan their future careers, and the faculty has a great reputation. Students are always studying on campus or participating in one of the many study groups/tutoring sessions available. School policies are reasonable, and there is enough money from donations and the FAFSA to help students fund their education. At Houston Community College, students feel like they belong, can make solid business contacts, and are helpful with one another.
