I had taken most of my courses online with Houston Community College. Being new to the online platform, with the help provided from HCC, I was able to navigate the courses very quickly. Professors had consistently provided videos and learning aids for their courses to ensure that students could understand the material just as well as those participating in classes on campus. I had found that learning online had better suited my abilities and I was able to learn very well through the enhancements and constant communication the professors at HCC had provided. It saved me a lot of time and allowed me to also help shape my own learning environment that were suited to my own personal needs. The experience I had was an excellent one and I would encourage others who are thinking of taking online courses to give it a try!

Teachers or responsive and the overall quality of education is great! The tuition is affordable for most and class schedules work for most that have professional careers during normal business hours. Faculty is organized and is always transparent about fees, school expectations, campus safety etc.
The diversity here is incredible. There is a large amount of different racial backgrounds all associating together and there is a group for everyone to fit in smoothly. The lecturers are helpful and friendly plus they make sure you enjoy their classes as well. Also, there are many campuses spread out through the city of Houston, so you attend school at your best location.

Basically, Houston Community College is a family regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality and other diversity. The surrounding environment makes up for the lack of in-school activities with many restaurants, parks, theaters, bowling allies, gyms, brewing companies and many more places for site-seeing as well. Overall, the experience you get here is not like other places. People searching for a 2-year college to have fun, get good lecturers and a very good associate degree with other aspiring students who are going to impact this world positively like myself, this is the place to be.
