I really believe that in order for college experience to be a success, you need to have people that work at the college who are actually passionate about what they do. When you need help with something they're willing to go out of the way and go above and beyond to assist you and make sure that you get the help and assistance that you need and that's what I love most about Hartnell. There's people that work there that are willing to give you a chance give you an opportunity, they're willing to go out and look and see what they can do to help you. If it weren't for people that work there that were so friendly and helpful, College Life Would Suck and getting the grades that you want wouldn't be possible without having people there that are nice!

I’m having a blast growing and flourishing academically. All of the professors at Hartnell, that I’ve had so far, are extremely constructive and helpful. They all want you to pass and thoroughly absorb the material. Courses are intense enough to be challenging!
Counselors are very helpful & most of the teachers are great! I wish there had been more online options, or at least more night classes. Make sure you meet with an adviser instead of registering for classes on your own so that you don't end up taking classes you don't actually need.
