Review Harrisburg Area Community College - York
I think some professors are better at teaching than others and sadly I feel like this school has more bad than good. Certain professors give out such a heavy workload that you basically don't have time to work on any other class work and then there's other professors who just lecture the whole time and never assign homework so it doesn't really feel like you're learning anything. Don't get me wrong, these types of professors do have their perks such as no homework means more time to study for exams and more homework means that you'll understand the material more when it comes to a test or quiz.
I think they try to cram as many students as possible into a classroom. This limits the interaction that a student can have with the professor which is potentially problematic if a student is struggling with a particular topic that is being discussed in the course. Also, I feel like the school needs to hire more professors in certain fields because the college lacks many offerings for a particular course which is also a problem when many students want to take a particular course and there are not enough seats.
Since this school is only a community college, it does not offer many campus activities however centers like the library and the writing center really do help you out when you need it. In the writing center, if you are struggling with start a paper or you just simply want someone else to proofread it before you submit it to your professor, they will do that for you and I really appreciate it. I know I'm not the only one but without the writing center, my grades probably would have been a lot lower than they were.
