Hudson County Community College Reviews
Hudson County Community College is an awesome college. Affordable, near the path station and very safe. The stuff members are very helpful and always there to answer all your questions in person or through phone and at any department. The first year I was not involved in student activities and I regret it once I did. All the activities are fun and very educative. It will teach you so many values and skills. Furthermore, the student life is a great experience there. The classes are very well equipped. The professors are very friendly and helpful and provide all the information needed in the classroom. I strongly recommend this college.
I attended HCCC part-time at nights to achieve my Associate's degree in Culinary Arts. The culinary arts program at this school is GREAT! The Chefs/Instructors are smart, very helpful, caring, understanding, dedicated, and just plain incredible. I lived every minute of it. One of the best, if not the best program offered at this school. In my 4 years of part-time experience here, I will say the Administrative building staff (registrar, bursar, admissions, financial aid, etc) is the worse to deal with. They act like they don't want to do their jobs, they always have an attitude, some are just incompetent, and they never really want to help. There are no office based services offered passed 5pm so if you need to handle anything you have miss hours from work. They are also horrible when it comes to the telephone, they don't know how to answer it or return voicemail! which forces you to have to miss work to handle anything.
Hudson County Community College has two campuses one located in Union City and one in Jersey City. Both campuses are located near bus/train/light rail terminals making the students' commute easier. Since they are located near main streets they are surrounded by restaurants, apparel stores and supermarkets giving students a different environment at each campus. In every building exit there are security officers, making the students feel safe when leaving the school. There are many programs to participate in that expand networking with a variety of people and organizations. There is an extremely diverse student body giving everyone an opportunity to socialize with other cultures. Extra help is available to all students with or without appointment for all subjects in order help a student understand the concepts being taught and provide them with a secure foundation to build their future on.
