The professors are not good they do not communicate well with students. The school is all about taking your money. 7000 students did not make SAP for financial aid that many people under a 2.0. that's a reflection of the the staff.
Very small. Seems a lot like an open campus high school. The buildings seemed to not have been maintenance in quite some time. The library is nice, but some of the other buildings need attention. The teachers are helpful but the atmosphere around the school was not good enough for me. Campus was extremely small. You will never walk further than 50 yards to go from one building to another. The parking was hectic as well as very loud obnoxious cars.
Majority of instructors I had could come off as very nonchalant when it came down to teaching the class
Overall I would not recommend Henry Ford Community College. It is filled largely with students who do not care about their education and professors who do not care about the students. Although there are plenty of students who excel and teachers that would bend over backwards for their students. My personal experience there was not very good.
I haven't attended college yet
The academics at HFC are pretty bad. There are some professors who are quite top notch, but then there are some counselors who are just the worst. They look at HFC as a part-time job and it's not very important.
I didnt recieve like anything kind of
The college seem like its a big money bank. They find ways for student to come out of pocket to pay for classes knowing that the student can't afford it.
I had a lot of hoops to jump through to receive financial aid. It seemed as if their was always one more paper to fill out. In the end I did receive the aid that I needed. I know now to start a lot earlier.
There is never a lot going on campus. There is the occasional play by the drama department and the Sisson Gallery is open for most of the year. The cafeteria is very limited and is expensive. There is a wide range of clubs to choose from but club activities are limited.
The computer network has had its problem. There is a bad signal within the school which is not a good thing
seems as though most student only come unroll their fatwa Pell grant refund check comes in. Then they disappears till the next semester. And the serious students don't get financial aid most of the time. Hurts to see the abuse.
There isn't much in the way of resources at Henry Ford compared to pricey four-year universities. But, for a thrifty student, there are usually underused course reserves to study from, a learning resource center for tutoring, and a small computer lab.
It's not really all that great, it's a a very small campus. The material there is much easier than a University. The tution is great. But personally I like to participate in football games and normal college activities but this college doesn't have it. You just get an education.
Parking Is Awful – they provide a shuttle bus from the mall nearby for overflow parking but the onsite parking is not good
My Experience at HFCC – My overall experience at school so far has been ok. I really have enjoyed the classes I've taken, but there isn't a wide variety of choices. I really enjoy the sciences, but when it comes to choosing a class like environmental science or maybe zoology they don't have them or its online which I don't care for. Even though the classes are listed in the book of classes they don't offer it. Another thing they don't have are real sport classes like tennis, same thing it's in the book and they don't offer it. I would definately not choose this school again if I could do it all over again.
Saving Money – I am happy that I went here for my first years of college, but only because I am saving quite a bit of money compared to a University. If i had to go back and do it over though, I think I would rather go to a four year college instead, to gain a better college experience.
