My experience with Houston Community College has been successful so far. The faculty at HCC has assisted me in every way that they can in order to help me to become a more successful student and achieve my goals. The students as well as the faculty are very friendly. It is evident that the faculty and advisors at Houston Community College care about your personal and academic success. The professors are willing to go above and beyond in order for you to excel in the class. If I were asked to recommend a 2-year college to someone, Houston Community College would definitely be at the top of my list.

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.

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.
