if your going here for anything Natural Resources then you'll be in pretty good hands. If you attend this school for anything else you're very much doomed. Doomed might be a bit harsh of a word but you won't be very well off. My favorite aspects about this school is how hands on the learning is. Nearly every class i've taken for my Wildlife management major has been done in the field learning hands on and thats been extremely beneficial. I also love how cheap the school is, if your just looking to get a quick two year degree especially in anything Natural Resources related then i would consider Hocking college because its easily one of the cheapest colleges out there. For the core classes such as English Composition and College Algebra, they're a little on the easy side and I'm not sure that those class credits can be transferred to four year institutions. All in all this school is a decent bang for your buck and can help you get a quick two year degree and out the door to work.

I've had a rather average experience. Think of Hocking like a high school that truly cares more about athletics and filling up their own pockets than providing a decent education, provided you chose the"right one" when applying. And don't expect much, you get what you pay for, and please expect them to make sure they get every single dime, even if with financial aid, the college has to screw you over. So, unless you're going for one of the main programs here such as Culinary, Natural Resources, Equestrian, Education, and Public Safety, I suggest you look somewhere else. Another tip: RUN!
Hocking College is a very hands-on learning environment. If you are interested in a certain trade, such as nursing, then your experience will be very beneficial to your future in your trade. You won't just learn how to do things, but you'll have experience doing them. However, if you are not exactly interested in a certain trade, Hocking might not be for you. I'm a film student and find that Hocking is focused very much on certain careers and not so much on others. You'll find most students learning about trees and wilderness or about healthcare and nursing, and there isn't much grey area. If you choose to go to Hocking for something more artistic and liberal, do not expect much.
