I believe that all the professors truly cared about my learning experience. Although the courses expected to be challenging were difficult, the professors were very understanding (not pushovers or suckers) about individual circumstances that could impact their time or grade in the classroom. I also felt they had a great tutoring center that I used to my advantage in obtaining the grade I needed. Overall, I feel my time at HCC was money and time well spent. Would definitely recommend this community college to anyone who is looking for an affordable, but challenging education!
Review Hillsborough Community College
Hillsborough Community College has been a great intro to life college. I attended HCC to get my Associates degree and I will be graduating this year. It has been a great help when it comes to guidance. Anytime you have a question, it gets answered. The classes are SO SMALL. It's amazing actually, classes feel more directly focused on you and it is easy to contact your professors for help because they know your name! HCC really makes you feel like an individual rather than a number and I would recommend that to everyone.
I am currently a student at Hillsborough Community College and this is my last semester there because i am already receiving my Associates degree and transferring to usf to further my education. HCC was an amazing school i honestly have no complaints at all. The professors are nice , advisors were really helpful ! They have so many activities throughout the semester! Like free food, movies, massages,and etc. I felt as if it was a stress free environment. They always had quiet places and so many computer labs around the whole school making it very accessible for students to complete assignments . I am seriously sad to leave but happy for what my duture holds !
