SUNY Hudson Valley Community College Reviews

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.
Review SUNY Hudson Valley Community College
HVCC is a great community college. I graduated from HVCC and applied at a 4-year SUNY College and all my credits transferred without any issues. It is a nice transition from a small town to college without it being overwhelmingly huge. HVCC provides a reputable degree and the best part is that it's affordable. It is a great stepping stone before going on to further academic studies. I loved my professors, they helped me excel. I highly recommend this great community college.
I have completed two semesters at this school so far and will be continuing in the fall. It is a great school in my opinion for several reasons. For one, it is very convenient for me because I love five minutes away. The in-state tuition is highly inexpensive compared to most 4-year colleges and universities. From my experiences the teachers are often very accommodating and helpful and willing to answer all questions. The courses I've taken haven't been overwhelming for me but then I've also been taking mostly general education courses. This school is also fantastic especially if you don't know what you want to do with your life or what to major in. It allowed me to realize that I really wanted to focus on something environmental so I had recently changed my major. And I am very excited in looking to four year colleges to transfer to after. It's also great because it is a part of the SUNY system so the credits transfer really well and it is an easy system to understand. One negative O'd have to say is that online courses leave something to be desired. I feel like someone might do well while taking one if they REALY enjoyed that topic and if they are able to learn and thrive in that type of teaching style because you basically have to teach yourself everything and you don't get that in-person and one-on-one interaction with the class and professor. Personally, I completely detested it but I was also taking a business class and I do better in a physics classroom. However, the government class that I took online I actually didn't mind because I actually find politics very interesting and I enjoy debating. The work was not overwhelming either.
