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.
Hocking college is a great two year school overall, however some of the staff is poor in service. The campus is nice, and the student life is phenomenal. Tuition is fair and far less expensive than most colleges. If Hocking received better funding, i think the overall rating would be much better. The library is nothing special but the staff within it's doors are always helpful. Hocking offers Trio to student's that entails tutoring,advising, and experiences.
