So far, I love attending Howard Community College. The campus is clean, updated and modern, and very progressive. The campus is big enough to accommodate the amount of students that attend, but also small enough that it isn't taxing to walk from building to building. The food selection is amazing, there is an actual Starbucks in the building and the food is made fresh. I also love that they added gender neutral bathrooms. All of the professors there are professional, accredited, and so helpful. The only thing I would change would be the parking. Sometimes it takes at least 20 minutes to find parking on campus, despite having two parking garages and a student parking lot.
Howard community college has provided me with an enriching and engaging learning experience over the past 2 years. The transfer opportunities and resources available to students are above average. Many classes were challenging enough to stay interesting while still being manageable. Some bad experiences with professors/classes as well a confusing website keep the score from being perfect. However, I would still rate my experience at the college as above average.
