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 Some of the buildings on campus could also use some major improvements as they are outdated and unkempt.
Allan Hanock College is a wonderful place to earn your degree. It's locally established and easily accessible to many restaurants and plazas, but they do have an on campus cafeteria with various options. The tuition is extremely reasonable. The campus is well situated and classes are easy to find. There are many resources for those in need, including a weekly free food giveaway to anyone in need. They offer many clubs including nutrition, dream club, vitaculture/Enolgy club and many more, as well as numerous sports events. staff is always welcoming and are willing to help in any way. The professors are helpful and accommodating and want to see thier students succeed. I am a junior and have had a amazing experience so far.
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!
