I love HCC. They're beyond the best as far as community colleges. There's so much opportunity at this campus. The trained staff of advisors go out of their way to ensure that you are on the right track, without wasting money or class time. They offer a wonderful duel program with Towson University to earn your RN to BSN easier. The campus is overfilled with all ages of students. And their success rate is fantastic! I am currently taken pre-nursing studies and love it! They also offer tons of campus support and activities to mingle with peers and Professors.

I really enjoy that simple fact that the campus is so environmentally open and has pretty landscaping. This makes new students, like I, feel more welcome and not as afraid to be a part of a community that is very welcoming. I also like how the staff is super friendly and encourages students to ask questions or if they are struggling, they are welcome to free tutoring at any time while being on campus. I struggled in my biology class when I was in high school, however, my teacher explained the content very thoroughly and it helped me understand the material a lot better, even though high school biology and college biology different completely in the topics being covered. Harford Community College not only offers excellent programs that help students, whether they are fresh out of high school or straight from a job they have held for 20 years, but they do not judge or discriminate based on the current knowledge of the student.
The experience I have had thus far at HCC has been truly rewarding. The faculty at this institution are comprised of truly remarkable teachers, who not only possess the knowledge for their areas of expertise but the compassion of spirit and dedication to their job that is commendable indeed. For many individuals, as for myself, the two-year Associate degree program at instititons such as HCC merely serve as a waystation on the path to greater academic goals. That characterization, however, does a total disservice to the high value knowledge and experience that a student gains by attending places such as HCC. My time on campus has proven the merits of this point, and to recognize the meaningful place HCC holds for me is to salute a school of higher learning that is exemplary in all ways.
