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.
