I loved my time at Holyoke Community College. The professors are amazing, and they really take the time to get to know you and make sure that you are successful in their class. I really enjoyed the smaller class sizes, and the activities that occur outside of the classroom provide great opportunities to get out of your comfort zone, expand on interests, and meet new people!

Since we are in the middle of pandemic due to the coronavirus, I have been taking my classes online my first year at Holyoke Community College, I just finished my first semester and I am starting spring semester on January 25th. The professors always engaged us students to have fun in class. The amount of assignments we receive is doable and the professors are patient and respectful with us if we have a question or problem with our assignments. Online schooling has been hard for many students at HCC and around the country but the staff at HCC do their best to make learning here easier even if we are not seeing each other in person in a classroom setting.
