The college is an absolute scenic place to learn and fulfill dreams. On campus are a great staff, including well-respected professors, friendly faculty, and student resource officers that give the place a sense of comfort. In all, on of the most important things you will take along with you is not just your diploma signifying that you have completed, but great friends and memories of the love that Holyoke Community College was provided. Treat this place with respect, and in return you will be rewarded with achievement.
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.
