I loved my experience at hccc. The staff is very helpful and the course offerings are great. The only thing I would like to see changed is to have metal detectors installed throughout the school to provide more safety for the staff and students.
Overall, I think this is a great community college. I had some excellent professors who really cared about their students. I also work in the college and the staff care about the students and their employees. The school work at the college can be challenging, especially if you take science courses. But, it is worth it. I would recommend this college to anyone.

All of my professors were excellent. Each and every course that I took was a challenge. I enjoyed all of the honor courses because it was an experience that made me want to excel. I'm a single parent with disabilities and I had my struggles. I am now going to transfer into a 4 year university. I hope that I will be able to graduate by 2021. It took me a few years to finish but I made it and who ever reads this essay I know that whatever you want to achieve the sky is the limit. I tell my children that they must study and no matter how hard it gets if you believe in prayer it will help. I'm 53 and in a few weeks I will be 54. If I can make it whoever is reading this essay I want to know that life is a challenge.
Going in as a Culinary Arts student I was very skeptical at first being the introvert that I am, but the more i familiarized myself with the campus the more open I became with my fellow peers. The classes are great with an easy pacing anyone can get in tune to. The admission and registration process is quick and easy as well as convenient for you as you schedule your class however you want and the staff is very accomodating.
I think this Community College is perfect for students like me who grew up in Jersey City. I highly recommend going here and for future college students to start here first if they have any idea on what they want to do. Also i recommend those like me who didn't know what to be or do in life to start here In Hudson County Community College because they have a wide varieties of different majors and many programs to choose. Going to this college will help you a lot financially and educational wise. The professors are very nice and well educated and the interactions with them during classes is perfect. They will stop and teach what they have to till everyone learns the subject of the day. The diversity is excellent; you will find almost anyone from anywhere on this earth attending the school.
The honors classes are fantastic if you can get in them. Small classes, great teachers and fellow students. The online classes are hit or miss. It's very difficult to communicate with the professors on there. But it's a nice institute and the new buildings are really great.
My experience has disabled student with different challenges my own at Hudson County Community College was good and challenging within transition. I would like more services for disability students to help them finish while getting a degree.
Good start for those who were away from school. The teachers are a tad mediocre. This is where you want to go as a stepping stone.
I attended Hudson for a total of 3 semesters. The professors I had were amazing other than a Spanish professor I had, she was terrible. I would recommend the Early Childhood Literature, East Asian Religion, and Film classes and professors (if they're still there). They were the most knowledgeable and kind professors I've had in a long time.
There are some professors at HCCC that teach the curriculum in an understanding manner. Some of those professors also care for their students and only wish to see them be successful.
My experience at Hudson has been interesting. You get what you give, basically. There are some professors at that school that really care about you, and want you to succeed, and that's very inspiring. Then there are more professors who do not give a hoot. There are probably twenty people in their class, and they can't be bothered to learn all of your names.

Student life is what you make it. There are plenty many events that you can choose to participate in. So, if you don't make any friends throughout your college career, it is probably because you did not bother to put yourself out there. Hudson isn't a bad school, but it isn't particularly a great school. You get what you give.
Amazing diverse atmosphere. Professors give you grade A education, making you have an university type experience. They expect more from their students. Makes that Associates degree well earned and deserved.
Many of the professors are adjuncts or simply not very good. A few are excellent though and really care. Not many services, but tuition isn't bad.
Very good college , especially if you're not really a school person! Give a lot of help and great library!
Despite all of the rumors, this establishment is not too bad. it all comes down to the professors you got. all of my experiences in this school have been fun, all of my professor were extremely well educated and were very helpful.
Very accessible college via trains and busses with a large array of majors and professors at the ready to help students on their academic paths. This two year college is perfect for students to start in as they have many transfer opportunities with many colleges and universities in New Jersey.

It's easy at first being there but as the years being there it gets tougher and tougher. With the help of your advisors I guarantee you will pass. That's what I like about the college. As for althetics & Parties, they have no room for a gym so that's out and I would like if they was set up more party scenes so students can take their negative energy and turn it to positive energy more often.
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.
Hvcc is great school to go to when is student is just starting out in school or they do not know what their passion is. There are a large verity of programs to choose from and the advisers are helpful. They have many resources as well for example the professors, which can help a student get internships or job opportunities.
