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.
Review Your College
As a Student of Hudson County Community College help me establish, rebuild and redefine my mind as a student. Overall the professor are great mentors they also help you individually with any problems a student may encounter. Also each academic program runs smoothly with very little complication in between. The school is a great foundation to build your future career on especially for those students who cannot afford college or have responsibilities at home. The school is always improving in different ways to help students whether it be a large option for class offering and scheduling or building new and technologically advanced buildings. All in all great stepping stone, affordable, caring staff and innovative.
As I entered my first core class, Introduction to Criminal Justice, I had Professor Lamb and all I can say is WO×. Professor Lamb taught his class through his exprienece, book and also made group work which help us socialize. Professor Lamb is big on networking student communicating with one another having real world connections he also gave detailed powerpoint and informative video which help drive home the lesson he was teaching. Their is no way professor Lamb can make the lesson any more simpler for the students. Professor Drew is just as great as professor Lamb through his teaching, experiences power points and videos. Professor Drew,in the other hand, has policing experience and helps students achieve goals, set up real life scenarios, and help students choose career paths.
