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.
As a student that is currently enrolled at HCC, I have come across many professors that fail to demonstrate interest in their performance as a teacher and the academic performance of their students. On the contrary, there are professors that are excellent at their job, they provide an excellent sense of academic challenge, find innovative ways to present the material, and are extremely resourceful. The school's advisers are a great help in suggesting the professors that come highly recommended. The advisers are excellent guides through the college experience; they offer both emotional and educational support. The campus is fairly clean, and often has many enjoyable free activities for students to partake in. The college is located within near proximity to several restaurants, a mall, and a Barnes and Noble. Overall this school is a good two year school, for those that are looking for cheaper alternatives throughout their educational journey.
