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 recently started in the early childhood education program at HVCCC, and i cannot day enough amazing things about the program. It’s clear to see that everyone in this department loves what they do. I can honestly say I look forward to going to classes. My professors teach with so much passion, are always open to questions, and make it so obvious that they really want you to succeed. Hudson Valleys education program is completely amazing!!!
