Holyoke Community College Reviews

I started my semester with no intention of a major. My mindset was to be within some sort of science field, though I was unsure. My adviser and I had long discussions of my aspirations. Finishing up my first semester, I was determined that I'd continue my college education in the field of nursing. My college experience was great! I made a variety of friends, the professors were generally helpful, and the facilities made it convenient to exercise after I did a study session. I appreciate all the hard work the professors and administrators do, providing students opportunities to reach their goals.

My experience of Holyoke Community College was really skeptical at first from attending our scheduled New Arrival Student Orientation, but afterwards when our group leader had explained the layout and multiple majors, clubs, and academic resources to choose from I was shocked to see a community college pull off all this amongst the average student attending here. I then knew that this was the perfect choice for me to attend and get a fresh start and understanding of what the college atmosphere looks like and how it can possibly advance even greater in a 4 year university. Overall I like the professors, advisers, and I even made some friends along the way from my attending classes. I only wonder how this will further my education and finally deciding what career path I shall take that will lead me to the life of success and to the pursuit of happiness.
Getting a degree from this school is so helpful, having a degree makes it easier to transfer to a four year college. There are always other four year colleges on campus interacting with the students, providing them with information about their schools, and HCC encourages it! They push you to visit other schools because they want you to transfer on and continue your education. There are so many different resources available to students including services for veterans who attend the school, which is a wonderful thing.
