I spent my first semester of college at Hudson valley and it was a great experience. It's based in a small town called Troy, outside of Albany, New York. Academically, Hudson valley is the place to be. The professors are great, the faculty and staff are helpful with the process of enrollment and any other questions you would have. They offer a lot of there time after hours to help students out like myself, which was highly appreciated. I Learned a lot going to HVCC, but more importantly, I gained a sense of independence. The housing process was a little hectic due to being a Off-campus housing school. Fortunately, before I departed I noticed housing coming to Hvcc which will prevent many issues students go through attending that school. If only they offered music management as a major I wouldn't have ever planned to leave. But such a great learning experience.
