HACC was a great community college, it had everything I would expect from a 2 year institution at a great price. The teachers care about the students, and there are lots of student resources for people to seek assistance with their learning. The tutor center is especially helpful. The only downside is a lack of "college feel." Overall a great experience!
Review Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg
This is a great college for students that want to save money by getting their general courses done before moving on to a 4 year school. Most of the professors are wonderful and well-versed in their subjects. There are great art and music programs. The students at HACC are very diverse. They come from all walks of life. Some students come straight from high-school and some are adults coming back to school for their degrees. Many HACC students juggle family-life, children, jobs, etc. It's a great school for multi-taskers. HACC is pretty much a no-judgement zone because of how diverse its students are. Overall, HACC is a great school and you can't beat how affordable it is for a great education.
Great school for tackling credits to transfer to home institution. Professors seem to care and take pride in their teaching. Facilities and classrooms create a warm atmosphere for learning and studying. The staff are always very helpful in assisting with any problems one might face while attending. The available options for dining on campus are tasty and offer healthy choices. Security is often which offers relief to any concerns one might have as to campus safety. Parking, or more specifically, traffic control, could be a little better as there are huge rushes during certain parts of the day. All in all a great institution for any high school students considering getting some credits out of the way or hopeful future students that have other choices to consider.
