Holmes Community College Reviews

I've had a pretty good experience so far with Holmes Community College. The online classes are fairly well laid out, and the classes I've taken so far have been easy but have taught me a lot. I haven't met one instructor yet who wasn't very nice and very helpful for students. I just started the nursing program here, and it appears to be a well-established and respected program with high expectations for its students. However, in-person classes during this unpredictable Covid-19 time have been somewhat disorganized and hard to follow. I think under normal circumstances, the teachers would have everything together and planned out well. Overall, I definitely recommend HCC. Great quality classes and a really great price for the education you're receiving. You won't regret it!

I attended Holmes Community College Ridgeland campus and I genuinely wish it was a four year university because I never wanted to leave. The professors were kind, the staff was incredibly helpful, and the students were amazingly friendly. The community and friendships that have been formed at Holmes CC are something I will cherish forever. I highly recommend choosing Holmes CC. Go Bulldogs! #noplacelikeHolmes
The professors are willing to help you reach your goals if you are serious about graduation. I took online courses, as well as on campus, and was very pleased with the way the administration helped with technical issues as well as providing ways to help study throughout my college journey. I did take some classes that I did not need for my degree due to having to have a certain amount for my financial aid. I did have one or two professors that did not seem interested in the well being of the students and just wanted a paycheck, but that is to be expected in the school system today. I found that seven out of ten percent of the staff were willing to go beyond in order to see students succeed. The technology standard for learning was met throughout the years as technology has changed in the last ten years. I felt the school was growing with the times as much as they could for a community college. Night classes felt safe with a security guard always on campus.
