Harrisburg Area Community College - Harrisburg Reviews

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.

As a high school graduate/first term freshman, my experience has been O.K, not too much of a crowd, you see new faces everyday. The campus is small, very diverse and colorful, nice resources, and nice professors. So far, I have learned a lot here. On the other hand, it is very small and not much of a college experience. The college itself is great, seriously. The buildings are beautiful and there is even an Apple store here on campus!
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!
