Harrisburg Area Community College - Gettysburg Reviews

HACC is an amazing community college. Advisors help you stay on track and help you plan your schedules. Even if you are transferring, advisors make sure your credits will transfer to your choice of school. Professors are easy to talk to and communicate well with students. Resources are readily available. There is free printing, access to technology, and free tutoring. Laptops, iPads, and calculators can be checked out through the library. Although the library is small, they can have a book shipped to you if it is not there. As a second year student at HACC, I am glad I made the choice to start my college education here.

Overall, my experience at HACC Gettysburg was incredible! I started with general education courses to transfer to a four year university. The classes are really informative and the professors really care. The student Government also plans about one activity a week which is really nice. Finally, resources such as writing tutors, online databases, and workshops have helped me succeed.
I came to HACC with the idea of getting as many credits out of the way before transferring to an art school. The school has many great resources, including free tutoring, career advising, and a daycare for adult learners. I have done many Gen. Ed. courses here and have rarely encountered a professor who wasn't happy to help a student. Many of the professors who teach at HACC tend to teach at larger colleges and universities, and thus the students are getting a similar education like that of larger schools. For example, when I attended the Gettysburg HACC, I had an Environmental Sciences teacher who was also a Chemist at Gettysburg College- he had a tendency to throw a lot of chemistry into our teachings.

Since I am an Art major, I have taken a couple of Art courses offered through HACC. I took mine at the York HACC campus, where Will Guntrum is head of the Art Department for York. While not well-funded, the professors are amazing and so insightful- and just downright talented! The classes ranged from a student/professor ratio of 1:13 to 1:3. Needless to say, I had a lot of personal attention when I was in class, and it was easy to ask for help. Margaret Brandt, an illustrator and professor at HACC, dedicates so much of her free time to the students and you can always depend on her for outside help. We took field trips every semester to 1 of three different cities to visit art museums, including Philadelphia, D.C., and Baltimore. I hope that the Art department receives more funding for HACC- some of these students are incredibly motivated and talented, and I think that my peers and professors have helped to prep me for a larger art college.
