Houston Community College is a great college not only for its well-distributed campuses over Houston but also for its affordable costs for most of the students. The HCC campuses offer everything a college student needs on a good scale. The professors are well-experienced and professional in doing their jobs. The student life is fairly good. Libraries, bookstore, food courts are available. Diversity in students is reasonably due to each campus' location. The edifices are very well structured with high-quality technology. Around my Stafford campus, a beautiful landscape of grass with a lake in the middle is really a good scene. Food courts is the issue that needs to be enhanced with more restaurants and fast food kiosks.
Review Houston Community College
HCC campuses are ok and the great majority of professors I met so far are great and helpful (with the exception of 2 of them, who barely show up in the classroom and barely explained the stuff to the students, making us to have to learn everything on our own). During my 2 years studying at HCC, I never found a problem with the safety. They're excellent dealing with that, especially when some crazy students tried to bring homemade bombs and guns to the campus and when this happened the police immediately instructed us what to do until everything was solved. Also, it happened many times of the classes being cancelled because of flash flooding and tornadoes severe warnings. HCC for sure cares about its student and staff's safety. It also has a great diversity of students. I'm an international student from Brazil and in ALL my classes I found other international students (from China, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, Nigeria, Angola, South Africa, Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and so on)
Excellent starting institution for new college students. Coming straight from high school to a community college, it allowed me to flourish with experience without the financial burden. Excellent school!
