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 loved HACC! All of my professors there were very kind, caring, and personable. I would suggest HACC to everyone. I choose to attend HACC my freshman and sophomore year and then I transferred to a 4 year college to finish my bachelors. HACC was also so affordable that I didn't even need to take a loan! HACC also made it so easy to get accepted and pick classes for semester with the help of their wonderful staff. HACC is great for the beginning of your college career because it has a wonderful environment, its a affordable, and convenient.
My overall experience was great. I liked that they partnered with other local schools so you could take most of your classes here and transfer the maximum amount of credits to a 4-year program. Advising staff and the resources they offered were great. I loved the fact that many classes were offered online.
One thing that was difficult is that some classes, especially major specific courses, weren't always offered or were offered at times that made it difficult for my schedule.
