Allan Hancock College Reviews

Allan Hancock College is a very good community college in my local area. The vast majority of the teachers I have had have been wonderful and are obviously passionate about what they do. I am currently a student at the Pacific Conservatory Theatre - PCPA, part of Allan Hancock College and my experience in this program has been truly wonderful. One thing that I hope changes is the state of the counselors at Allan Hancock College. I have been misinformed about various things including what classes are transferable or not on more that one occasion which has actually prevented me from transferring to University on the original timeline I had planned. I was offered admission at a school only to no longer have it as a result of a required class that was not transferrable from my current school. However, the campus is beautiful and the theatre that I am currently a student at is wonderful.

My experience at Allan Hancock College started off very uncomfortable. For the reason being, I moved after high school to Waco, Texas to go to a community college with hopes to getting into Baylor University. I only lived in Waco for six months before I moved back home to Arroyo Grande. I registered for classes at Hancock College and had to be in class the same day. My first semester went very well and I made Dean's list. The second semester, I was unexpectedly asked to join the Athletic Training internship. My overall experience at Allan Hancock College has been wonderful and I recommend this two-year college to anyone who is interested in furthering their education after high school. I would not change anything about the college.
My experience at Allan Hancock College is very positive. Everyone helps one another on campus. For example, there is always something happening on campus. Most often it is teachers and volunteers coming from different colleges or jobs to help aid the students in a field of their choice. This really shows how the college and staff truly care for the well being of the students that attend Allan Hancock College. Overall, I believe Allan Hancock College should spend more one on one opportunities like this to help direct students in the right direction of furthering their education to be successful.
