SUNY Hudson Valley Community College Reviews

I've been with Hudson Valley for three years now and I've enjoyed every single day with them. Most people have a sour approach when it comes to community colleges, and after being a student at one, I can't see why they would think that. My teachers are so personal and I feel comfortable going to them for help. I am pushed to be my best constantly! They have a healthy mix of being stern and strict, but friendly and helpful. I always recommend coming to Hudson Valley to anyone I know in the area. Since I am transferring this year, it's safe to say that they have prepared me very well for my future.

HVCC was a decent school with some dedicated professors. It helped me get all my beginning credits out of the way at an affordable price. The food and coffee was terrible and were not very good about canceling school on days with extremely dangerous road conditions from snow and sleet. I found the academics to be very passable and not much of a challenge. The Honors program at HVCC is unorganized, and quite frankly, a joke. Only join the HonorScholar Program if you need the money. Overall, it was affordable, convenient and in the end worth going to if you want to start off your college experience on an affordable note.
I thought Hudson Valley was a great college to start off. I went to Hudson Valley to get my associates degree before I go on to transfer to a 4-year university. All of my professors have been great, and some have been beyond incredible. There are tons of clubs and organizations to get involved in, lots of scholarship opportunities, and the food is pretty good. I have met some life-long friends and have so many great memories here. Because it is a community college, most people leave after their classes so there isn't a whole lot going on unless you get involved. Overall very relaxed and laid back vibe and everyone gets along really well.
