I attended HCCC part-time at nights to achieve my Associate's degree in Culinary Arts. The culinary arts program at this school is GREAT! The Chefs/Instructors are smart, very helpful, caring, understanding, dedicated, and just plain incredible. I lived every minute of it. One of the best, if not the best program offered at this school. In my 4 years of part-time experience here, I will say the Administrative building staff (registrar, bursar, admissions, financial aid, etc) is the worse to deal with. They act like they don't want to do their jobs, they always have an attitude, some are just incompetent, and they never really want to help. There are no office based services offered passed 5pm so if you need to handle anything you have miss hours from work. They are also horrible when it comes to the telephone, they don't know how to answer it or return voicemail! which forces you to have to miss work to handle anything.

There is no financial assistance support for older adults seeking retraining because they cannot find employment. I have applied to many scholarships, work-study positions and part-time positions, but they are filled by 21 year-old students. I have struggled for 3 years to pay tuition, rent (I live alone) and books.

I need help to pay for Fall 2014 because I could not use federal loans. It was a 5 credit clinical rotation; loans require 6 or more credits.

I received an A grade, but I will have to drop if I cannot pay for fall, because I have a block on spring registration, and I graduate May 2015, so my pleas for help are genuine and urgent!

When I started going to HCCC back in the winter of 2005. It was starting to blossom. I was going part-time at night. Over the past 7 years the college has expanded and changed for the better. But, It should not forget
some things! It's the part-time students that make that college grow. It's people like myself that have struggled to make it! Apply for scholarships,
continuing to face the ups and the downs of sickness and weather and keeping the outlook to continue my education! I have had my challenges,
But, I have kept going at all odds! I use a service dog and walker to get to
classes with. And gigi my service dog, is the first service dog to attend HCCC to help me get to class. I hope that the HCCC will always be there
for the struggling student, who wants an education to assist them with there goal to accomplish there task of student degree, no matter what the
challenge is!
