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.

Education wise, Howard Community College is a strong school. It's easy to follow a degree path, or just take general education courses that build a strong foundation on which to transfer to another university. The majority of the professors are enthusiastic about their field, which makes classes interesting to attend and participate in. The student services are punctual and east to work with. The one drawback is the social atmosphere, of which there's a lack of, but overall, I'd say HCC is a good contender for a beginning school.
Excellent teaching staff, wonderful study labs, intelligent student body, welcoming atmosphere! Parking is easy, and class options are varied.
