This is a great school full of many opportunities! I have not only learned so much but I have become a better student and person overall. The tutition is a lot less exspensive yet has the top proffesors from Yale and Harvard teaching some of the English and math classes. I am so honored to be a student there.

Review Housatonic Community College
I had a wonderful experience at Housatonic. Enrollment was straightforward and communication from the school was much better than at Gateway CC. I loved my microbiology professor, Sandra Barnes. She was amazing and provided so many resources for us. Literally the only downside to my experience was the construction going on at the school at the time I was taking class.
The more semesters I've completed at HCC, the more I began to love it there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The more you get involved with student activities, the more you'll enjoy your time there. I could start over, I would do it again at HCC!
