I really enjoyed how hands-on the Haywood Wildlife Management program is. We got to experience a variety of field opportunities provided by the Natural Resources agencies we volunteered with. We saw many possible job fields and met many potential employers. We furthered our skills as fishermen, hunters, trappers and overall outdoorspeople while thriving in an academic setting. Instead of being seen as students, we were seen as wildlife professionals. I did not like how seemingly isolated our program was from the others on campus. The school focused on the Nursing program while Wildlife was the prevailing of the two. The Nursing program at HCC received more advertising. The security guards were more of a joke than a protecting force. They drove around all day and rarely did anything but yell at students for driving through a gravel lot to get to our practice shed for timbersports.

In my time at Haywood Community College I've experienced many frustrations. The administrative staff seems very disorganized and at times unhelpful. The financial aide office has at times misinformed students, causing difficulty in their degree completion. The only real saving grace that I've experienced are the instructors. Not all of course, for every college has poor faculty members. But as a whole I have had positive experiences with the majority of my instructors.
The campus is not anything special, it reminds me of an old hospital. The work feels like highschool classes not a real college experience environment.
