Hutchinson Community College Reviews
The few weak spots found in being a student at Hutch mostly come from location, but for a community college in Kansas, I highly recommend it. My professors are incredibly knowledgeable in their subjects and give intense work and connective class experience. Hutchinson is not necessarily the most fun place to live but I highly recommend it if you are commuting from Wichita, Newton, or McPherson. Safety has never been a concern and navigating the main campus is not difficult and is quite enjoyable. Due to the current circumstances, the full experience involving sports and parties are not an option, but a cornerstone of the town and the college. If you have not given community colleges any consideration, I would strongly recommend HCC.
I love Hutch! So many great opportunities and it doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg. Thanks to financial aid, I’ve gotten a refund check from them every semester I’ve been taking classes. I haven’t paid them a dime! Small class sizes allow me to get so much more out of the class time. The professors are so nice and willing to help you in any way they can.
Due to the pandemic, I decided that taking at least 1 course online would benefit my overall learning portfolio. Most work at the college is conducted through Canvas, so it is an eas transition if you mix your classes. All online classes are taught by a real person on campus, so if you need to speak with them, you can. Not every online class has lectures, but plenty of information is explained through the e-books or files given by the instructor. I think that the experience with online learning at Hutch is a great opportunity for any type of student to fill in any credits they need.
