I haven't started yet, but I'm from the San Angelo campus. Just getting started and registered with classes was super easy! the staff was also very helpful. The campus is really nice too, I look forward to starting my classes this fall!

The teaching was amazing. I have learned so many new things this past semester and have had many great experiences. Throughout the semester I realize that the dorms and community needed to be updated. The dorm in the kitchen was absolutely awful with bugs crawling all in the cabnits. The bathrooms in our rooms also needed to be looked at. Even though the facility needed work, the professors and my fellow students, were amazing.
I live in a small city in West Texas that only has one university, and happy to say a community college. I am grateful for the college I go to because in a time of desperate measure it was here and the tuition wasn’t a great worry. The colleges staff is very caring for each students future goals. But since community college is very temporary and can only go so far in what to offer I hopefully would like to transfer to the university in our city. My major is nursing, and after my bachelors if I’m blessed I would like to continue my education to become a physicians assistant. But overall, Howard College has helped me prepare in pre-med, especially in my maths, governments and history’s for a great price. It’s worth it.
