Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg Reviews
I've had a great experience with HACC! I took all online courses, and I'm only a semester away from receiving my Associates in Accounting. The diversity in the school is amazing, as not only students of different ethnicities attend HACC, but also students of different ages, professions, and work and education backgrounds. HACC is helping me receive my Associates, it helped me receive admission into Millersville University, and it has helped me grow not only as a student but also as a person. Not only educational knowledge is gained, but also soft skills that you can use in the workplace and everyday life. Go HACC!
I am returning to HACC at the age of 51 years old. All staff that I have met have been very helpful. I had the opportunity to take testing to be able to take a higher English that was recommended by my Advisor. I received Financial Aid and had queations on what that involves and how to use it and the Financial Aid team was very helpful. I know when I was attending HACC before the teachers were all very helpful, I am hoping that didn't change. I am very excited for August 27th so that I can get started on earning my Associates Degree in Human Services- Drug and Alcohol Counseling!
I enjoyed the variety of students on campus. I had some professors that were difficult to contact, especially with my online class. I found the bookstore staff to be extremely helpful. I would have liked my on campus classes to have a lower student to professor ratio. I found the bigger classes to be overwhelming to my professor and frustrating to students. I also took a HACC based class off campus and that was perfect! I loved my instructors, they were extremely attentive and the class was fulfilling to me. Over all my experiences with HACC have been positive.
