Howard community college is the place to be! It is a very peaceful place, people are so friendly and kind. The environment is always clean, neat and organized. Its facilities are well equipped and in good condition. The weight room and swimming pool are my favorite part of the school. I get to relax and unwind after spending a lot of time working on my school work. Learning resources are always available to every student giving us no reason to fail our tests. I love my school and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of setting a good educational foundation. We can get ther from here.

HCC or Howard Community College is a really great 2-year school! The professors for the most part are great and the school isn't too trashy. The only reason I didn't give them a 5/5 is because of the following reasons. HCC actually grades on attendance while most schools don't, I pay for the classes so I should be allowed to miss without penalty ecspecially since most Community College students work. Also their online classes have a maximum capacity which seems dumb since it is online. They don't have enough room in online or in-class classes for the increasing amount of students that choose to go there. HCC is great right now but there is still a lot that they need to fix
This college has grown so greatly in size since the first time I had went to school here. The campus is beautiful and the new buildings look even more wonderful. The only down fall? Parking. The lots are ridiculous if you are getting to school after 8:00 am! The best thing that they had to offer a few years ago was the 'dragon wagon' that would shuttle you from an off-site lot and drop you off right at the front of the school building. It was honestly so convenient! They would also give out vouchers so when you would collect 5-10 then you could trade them in for a voucher to the cafe - which was such an awesome treat for just choosing to ride the shuttle. In terms of the classes that they had, I had some awesome teachers and then I also had the teachers that would create power points that were just text from the books. I had a hard time with this as there were a lot of classes that would have teachers that did this and the students would end up having to self-teach themselves.
