Hartnell college yields a very good return on an investment into your education. That is because it is a very cost effective way to complete your general education and attain an Associate's Degree in your chosen field. I would suggest staying very involved in your progression by visiting with counselors regularly, because once they see that you care about your education they will take an interest in you and try to help you succeed. Hartnell is welcoming to students outside of the local area as well, I know someone who came from Orange County to play on the basketball team here. Hartnell community college is a sensible choice if you are trying to save money while still going to college.

Hartnell is a local community college in the Monterey bay. It's a great college because it has South Monterey bay campuses as well! Which makes students easier to get to class, anc give them motivation! Knowing That school is in there hometown.
I've had a wonderful time and amazing opportunities through Hartnell. I'm currently in a computer science bachelor's degree program funded by them and CSUMB, in which I get to be a part of a cohort. I've managed to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout the past 3 years. I founded and was president of the current computer science club there, in which the members, officers, and I participated in and held community service activities. It's truly been a blast!
