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 Your 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.
Online classes are very convenient and are in ample supply at HVCC. Workload, while still being the same as if in a traditional classroom, are sometimes easier due to more of a time limit to complete them. Online classes are very flexible and are great for students who are also working. The registration process is the same as registering for traditional classes, however you lose face to face interaction which can really make a class great.
