It is very awesome to go to Houston Community College. It has a large diversity of students. It offers a modern and dynamic programmes that are well designed with the theoritically knowledge along with the practical work. Low tuition fees but many classes offered by HCC! It has many campus around Houston, so everyone can get the campus that really accessible to him. By the way, the profeesors are motivated and really open minded and we can discuss clearly and directly. There are both positive tangible and intangible ways that really impact the students' study such as campus safty, clean, friendly atmosphere. This, I really recommend HCC.

I like that the classes are small, so it’s very easy to get that extra help if you need it. The campus is kept neat and clean, even the bathrooms. People are friendly, polite, and helpful. Majority of the teachers are willing to help with your propane concerns, that you might have. My least favorite part about HCC, is the online classes. Some of the deadlines are impossible to make, when you can’t find the material or don’t know what you are doing. Plus, the work is 10x harder to get done and turn in, when you have other classes to take. Otherwise, I love attending Houston Community College!
This college is amazing! the campuses are clean, new, and well maintained. The professors are well qualified, usually they have PhD or masters's degree. They are so many extra help to be successful like laboratories, tutor center, writing center, online tutor and others.
They are many campuses around Houston that is easy to find one near to your residence. Classes always on time. Advisory is very organized and they always help you to find class or guide you.
