Review Allan Hancock College
Allan Hancock College is a great scool to attend because it's not too big and the students here are very friendly. I can make friends easily. My favorite experience at Allan Hancock College is me joining Alpha Gamma Sigma (AGS), an honor society and service club. This club has many benefits for the members; those includes recognition of academic excellence, eligibility for AGS scholarships and service awards, and many more. The club has many opportunities for each student to develope leadership skills and do services for the community or in school. I have earned my service hours through volunteering to help the community and prepare events for school. Allan Hancock College also has many other great clubs for student to join. It is a great opportunity for students to give back to their community through these clubs.
I've had good and bad instructors my past 2 years here. There are a few great professors, a lot of lukewarm professors and there's also quite a big of bad professors.

When I say "great" professor I mean a professor who works with their students and is very interactive both in and outside of the classes. These professors strive to educate you and prepare you for your future as a college student. They're both organized and social and they always do their best to keep the class focused. Encountering professors of this caliber is an excellent experience, I will never forget these professors.

When I say "lukewarm" professor I mean professors who teach you a few things but are pretty laid back for the most part. Their material is repetitive and doesn't really make an impact on the students life.

Bad professors are those who don't have proper communication skills with their students. They aren't very interested in helping and they're very inflexible when it comes to working with the students. Essentially students are teaching themselves in these types of courses.

Class sizes at Hancock are very small, the classes start off very impacted and often fall to about 10-15 students per class a few weeks into the semester, a majority of students drop out of the course in the middle of the semester, so it's important to stay focused and motivated.
