I would rate my experience as excellent at Hinds Community College in Raymond because I had the opportunity to take college algebra on campus while dual enrolled as a senior in high school. So far, I have enjoyed every moment of learning on campus, and I look forward to taking more classes as the future draws nearer. Based on my early experiences, I believe Hinds Community College is the best decision for all college freshmen in the Jackson, Mississippi area because it will contribute to a positive perspective on the college environment.

I am a student at Hinds Community College through duel-enrollment; this means that I am a high school student taking Hinds classes online. My experience with Hinds professors and classes has been positive overall. I learned a lot through English Comp. 1 and 2, and my professors have always been helpful and kind. In fact, I actually improved my writing a lot with the help of my teachers. Even though I am duel-enrolled I still enjoy all the perks of a college student, such as the computer lab. This college is nice and affordable, I just wish I could change the location. Pearl, MS is kind of boring.
Hinds Community College offered me the BEST experience ever. Everyone welcomed me with open arms and was always willing to help. They provided many resources to help with any and every subject. Hinds also provides many outside programs that help prepare for the real world. At Hinds, I learned a lot about myself as well as working with others. The academic programs were challenging but what would you expect coming from the #1 Community College in Mississippi. I will forever and always be grateful to be apart of the Hinds Community Family. It is an honor to be a student and future Alumni. I hope anyone interested in attending Hinds goes for it, you will be 100% satisfied and will have a lot of fun.
