Houston Community College in my opinion is a great college for me and especially for graduating High School students in which I would recommend. They have endless career opportunities for all walks of life. The administrators, advisors, counselors, teachers are all collaborative on assisting and guiding students on the right path of success! Most of all the diversity of students is astounding. I've learned a lot about different demographics of cultures and conclude that we as people are not much different!

Hello,
My name is Michael Members. Currently I live in Kansas City, Mo, but I will be moving to Houston in July 2018 for school. I have already taking a courses online at HCCS and I absolutely love the way the school operates! They provide all sorts of resources for even a distance education student, so that he/she can be deemed successful. This school is one of the top community colleges in Texas and I am honored to be apart of it. I cannot wait to further my education while attending my first semester as a “credit” based student at Houston Community College.
As a freshman student at Houston Community College, I say my experience was excellent! At first, when I first applied, I was pretty hesitant about my decision. Turns out I was wrong! The campus is very well done inside and out. Students skitter here and there, taking their learning environment very seriously. I met so many great professors and students at HCC, making me fully grow as a person. To me personally, to be successful, no one can do it alone. Wonderful counselors and the people at HCC take your future very thoughtfully. On the other hand, HCC will improve more as a community as a whole, if they implemented a lunch room. Students do not have time to eat or go to the nearest fast food restaurent. Thus, it would be handy if the food was served directly to the students! Thank you for reading my review!
