Check on your classes before registering. They say they are accommodating, but they are not. Need to take a course that is only offered one semester a year and only 2 days that semester, and better yet they reserve one of the days for "preferred students". So only one class available. English teacher cancels half the time.Other classes this semester are fine. Don't pay attention to athletics here. Safety, well listen to the news and you'll find out. Girls should carry some sort of protection. Campus is okay for its size.Don't know the dorms or the party scene. Eat off campus. Again, commute so don't hang out with students after school. Would go elsewhere, but would have to start all over again.

HVCC is a very great college, it is funny because (at least for me) I didn't appreciate till I was gone. The academics are very manageable and the education department is fab. The people you meet are great and very diverse. However sometimes you can come across really immature people who haven't left hs yet. Otherwise hvcc really is great and they are top ranked for good reasons. For example the library is really a great resource, and all the resource centers are excellent, they are almost always open and available from early in the morning to late evening.
The teachers invest their time in your education, they have a wide array of amenities and cater to each student (even those with disabilities). It's easily accessible by bus and very very affordable for both in-state and out-of-state residents. Transfer to other schools, especially other SUNY colleges, is flawless. The most worth while community college in the entire country.
