So far it has been amazing, it is easy to navigate through the campus and the staff is very ver friendly. The professors are good! and even though you register for classes late there are still good teachers. They have a lot of resources available to anyone who is in need of them. they help you get jobs, scholarships, and more. They also have extra curricular activities and I find that amazing because it is another way to connect with the staff and your pears.

Attending a community college was never on my radar, but once I stepped on campus and started classes, I knew Houston Community College was right for me. Houston Community College provides the same opportunities as other 4 year institutions. The difference is that its a 2 year college, the tuition is reduced and the classes are smaller. All of which are positives for a person who is looking for that environment. The education level is the same as any other institution and the tuition is very affordable. With the system of Houston Community College being smaller, the counselors become very familiar with their students and you form good relationships that will help you down the road. If a student is not ready to take on a bigger college or want to start with a manageable class load, Houston Community College is right for you.
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.
