4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall great college. Cannot complain about much. Classes are great and professors are very passionate about what they do. Best community college to go to. Start off at hvcc and then you are ready to go to move on without troubles.

4 College Senior

Career Services: If you need help finding a career this is the place to go. Everyone is helpful and is always there for you

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is diverse. You can definitely separate the student body from those who are just out of high school and those who are mature hardworking students. Some students know college isn't a joke and I feel like some think college is just one big playground like high school and don't take much things serious as they should.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything is straight forward. Finical aid is always there to help when you have any questions. Everything they post about if great and useful

3 College Senior

Online Courses: For my own opinion online classes are great if its truly a convenience for your schedule. But I am not a fan of online. I learn the traditional way and cant learn from a computer teaching me in a sense. I have to have classes with professors that way I can have that immediate interaction and computers cant teach you different ways to understand a topic. Computers know one way to teach or give you the material, so overall if online works for others then its a great tool to use but for me I am not a fan of it.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are so many times available for you to take classes that you really cant give an excuse on way you cant take classes or even attend college because hvcc is flexible to help you out.

Overall Experience: Hudson Valley is a great college. They have so much for a student to be successful in. There's so many opportunities to get help to gain more knowledge in your degree. A community college is truly the best way to start off college because it does truly prepare you for what other colleges or universities are looking for. I would definitely tell friends to go to Hudson valley just because its a local and well trusted school.

Campus Resources: The school has a great faculty staff. The staff in the library and in the student center are very helpful.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process I had many issues with. The books are very expensive, especially when you are paying out of your own pocket for them.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Teachers are very helpful with jobs available after as well as during classes. They also help you go through other colleges to further your education.

Academic Experience: I love the criminal justice program! I've already learned more then I thought I would have for my first semester. It is also very interesting. It makes me want to be there every class and never late.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Students are very nice as well as helpful.

Overall Experience: It really is a small community college where as you progress throughout the semesters, you tend to be in the same classes with the same people so you begin to make close bonds. I'm glad I got to complete my AS here because it allowed me to experiment with different majors and classes to see what I really wanted to do.

Academic Experience: The majority of the professors really do care about the students- a friend once told me his professor bumped up his final grade two or three points in order for him to receive financial aid. Overall, using ratemyprofessor.com will definitely help you choose the right professor for you. Class registration can be stressful, but if you do everything quick and on time you should be able to get the classes you want.

Academic Experience: I graduated from the Human Services Program and it taught me a great deal. All the professors and advisers for my program were really helpful and its easy to tell they cared about all of us. It's required that Human Service majors complete two internships, each internship I was placed in I was able to learn a lot. I will say sometimes the advisers can be a bit moody, and I had to put them in their place a few times, but nonetheless they are all helpful.

Overall Experience: For the most part, the professors are great! Of course there will be a handful that shouldn't be teaching, but every professor is passionate about what they're teaching us. Every professor that I've had has known each student by name and even after the semester is over still seems to remember. You can form a great relationship with your teachers and they will be more than happy to write a letter of recommendation for you. Class sizes are small enough so you'll know every student as well and group work is also a big thing at hvcc so you'll make great friends too!

Overall Experience: For my human services major 2 internships were required, the professor lets you fill out what population you'd like to work with and then they try to fix you up with an agency that you'd like. Both my internships were great! They both encouraged me to apply for a job there; I'd say the internships were the best learning experience in the human service major's curriculum. Every few weeks the college hosts a job fair for anyone and also a special one for veterans I believe. (there's also a special quiet room for veterans in the library!)

Academic Flexibility: I have always registered for my classes by myself, but most people get help from their advisers. The day that online registration begins is always stressful since so many students are trying to get the classes they want- they website usually crashes. If you took the time to look at what classes are available and at what times, that should make things less stressful instead of trying to do everything at once. I had done college classes in high school that were supposed to be transferred, I had to remind my adviser twice to put them through- so as long as you're able to double check what your adviser does you'll be fine as well.

Student Body: There's a ton of diversity throughout the college. We have whites, blacks, latinos/as, Middle Easterns, Asians. We also have a great variety of different ages too. There's so cliques here and there- the nurses stay with the nurses, mechanics stay with mechanics- nothing new. We have girls that dress like Donald Trump is their father and we have girls that look like they rolled out of bed and forgot to brush their teeth. The girls can get annoying sometimes.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Even though it is just a community college, I changed my major twice without any hassle of chaos. Being in a community college gives you the chance to really find out if the major you chose is what you actually want to do for the rest of your life- so I think that I got what I paid for in the scheme of things.

Campus Resources: There's an awesome hockey rink that everyone skates on during the fall and winter. The student center is opened 24/7, I've known a lot of people who have stayed up all night studying there without being disturbed. Depending on the day and time, the library can either be completely empty or so packed that you won't even find a chair let alone a computer. But, there are two floors to the library along with staff who's there to help you, there's a research department as well who's available too.

Career Services: Everyone in Upstate New York knows about HVCC- but furthering your schooling after getting your Associates is a great idea. You won't find a good paying job with just an Associates, but I'd say 99% of Upstaters have either attended HVCC or know about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I had only taken one online course over the summer break, but the professor was amazing at reminding us about deadlines, quizzes, and tests. Even though it was an online class, the teacher seemed very energetic through his posts and was eager to really teach us something new. I had e-mailed him about my grade and he responded back in the same day. Not every online class is great though, so check out ratemyprofessor.com first.
