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.

I have overall enjoyed the experience I have had so far at Howard considering that I come from a different part of the state. Howard College needs to update their school buildings. I believe that they need to improve on their cafeteria options. I like the accessibility to the computer labs and library that students have. I also wish that they had more clubs to become involved in. I enjoy the sport they had to offer, but wish they had more. I enjoy the professors because they make it easy to have one on one time to enhance my grades and experiences here. I enjoy the community and faculty that surround Howard because they are reliable and help me complete tasks to better my future. I would and have suggested that others attend Howard.
I really enjoyed attending this college especially for my Associates degree. The only down side is that if you want to re attend for extra classes financial aid will not pay for the classes because there isn't a degree plan for that. The teachers were great the campus was decent and I loved the smaller campus feel!
