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!

There are athletics but being it is a community college, not many people go out and support them. Therefor e I ma unsure of any athletic centers. The library is great! It has many books to choose from, as well as articles for research papers. It also has a café lounge where you can go and eat, drink and relax. It also has a writing and research center where you can get help with writing papers. There is also a LAC ( Learning Assistance Center), where you can go an receive Math help. They have help for all Math courses at the school which is great! There are workshops that can be set up for help on a particular topic or unit that you and your class (minimum of about 10-15 people) are having trouble with and want help with. The campus center is pretty good. There is a computer lab and there, as well as a cafeteria, which to me the food is over priced, the bookstore, etc.

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!)
