3 College Junior

Student Body: There's very little social interaction. Not very friendly. Everyone just leaves to go home and doesn't interact.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There is many diversity in my school, and I found that all students are hardworking and interested in helping others.

4 College Student

Student Body: diverse and I like it

3 College Senior

Student Body: There's students that goes to school to get another career path, are here to continue school, are coming back to school, and especially, improving their career path.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Because it's college you see all kinds of people. My college in particularly there are quite a few Vietnamese people (more-so women) and Nigerian people that attend campus. Plus, I've seen many different ages too. Anywhere from just out of high school to some one in their 50s trying to go back to school or retake classes. So it's pretty diverse.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at Houston Community College embrace diversity and support each other despite differences in racial, economic, and social backgrounds. There is a LGBT group on campus, alongside many academic, study, and religious clubs and organizations. The average student works part-time or full-time to help pay tuition and school-related fees. Students are willing to help each other in group projects and support each other in class. Many international students study within the Southwest region and have no trouble finding help from American students. With so much diversity, classmates often get along and learn new things from one another. Class discussions run smoothly and sometimes the teachers have to stop the students from continuing debates for too long. Students can sometimes be found speaking to each other in foreign languages, and cultural food and languages are shared are celebrated at certain times of the year by HCC clubs and organizations.
