Harrisburg Area Community College - Lancaster Reviews

I really appreciate HACC for its affordable, quality nursing program. I am putting myself through college while working part-time. HACC does well at accommodating the general public by offering a variety of college courses that are easier on the budget.
A downfall to a community college such as HACC is that its campus is not as technologically advanced as neighboring colleges in Pennsylvania. The campus has a much more practical feel to it since there isn't a budget for "glamorous" options that other colleges in the area might have. However, I am able to pursue my degree with less stress and anxiety about how I will make ends meet. I can rest assured in the fact that I am being trained to be an educated nurse. In my opinion, the trade-off is definitely worth it!

I love my community college. In high school, I often looked down on community colleges however I was wrong to do so. In my first year, I saved a ton of debt and have almost all of my general education credits done! At HACC the teachers and staff have made me feel as though my success is important to them! As well as the fact that with a smaller class size it is very easy to seek out help and ask questions.
My overall experience at Harrisburg Area Community College has been excellent. The application process was very easy and I received my acceptance in the mail within weeks. The professors that I've had have been very kind and understanding toward different students and their situations when it came to work or children at home. I think, to make this college better, they should implement some sort of safety plan for students. In today's political and cultural climate, there have been fears of gun violence while going to school. In my time at HACC, I have never had any type of drill or procedure in the event of a shooter or fire or anything. This should change.
