Allan Hancock College Reviews

Almost every teacher I have had at AHC has been absolutely amazing. They serve a quality education and create a positive atmosphere. There are a few things that could use improvement however. One of those things being the counseling department. I have had multiple meetings with all sorts of counselors and they are just horrible at their jobs. Students have to take matters into their own hands and use DegreeWorks to try and make their own educational plan. Also, the food is quite horrible tasting and is very expensive! College students like myself are usually broke and the prices are absurd! Some of the buildings on campus could also use some major improvements as they are outdated and unkempt.

I went to Allan Hancock College while in my Senior year of High School. I went for a few years, then stopped. 15 years later, I am now returning. SO much has changed. Technology has helped. They are more present and accessible online, their campus (which I grew up next to, and played in when I was little), has grown from little dirt patches, to 2-story, beautiful buildings. I, literally, have watched this campus grow. I have yet to see how instruction is, since I have not had classes yet, but in the past, it was excellent!
My experience here has been great and I'd definitely recommend anyone attend here. However, the store and bookstore should open at an earlier time than 8 AM. Classes begin at 7:300AM and students often need to print or go buy scantrons but cannot. During finals some classes demand them be in their seats before class starts and opening at 8 AM, thirty minutes afterward can be an issue. Besides that, the professors are the best! Very welcoming and friendly!
