Sigh. It seems that everyone who has posted on here so far are the kind of self-entitled egotists who insist, for some bizarre reason, that the world owes them something. They're also probably the kind of people that get upset about waiting in line at financial aid or registration in August when classes start in two weeks.
Every year, I get my financial aid done as soon as I file my tax return, and register for classes the moment open enrollment begins. I do this so I don't have to wait in line with the arrogant douchebags that complain about everything this college is offering them.
HCC is not a fantastic school by far, but it does what it can with the resources it has. Classes are small, capped at 30, for a reason. As a community college, the entire school focuses on trying to bridge the gap between students and their teacher.
Books are expensive and parking is a bitch, but if you are a mature individual, you will understand that this is true at any college. You will take away from the classes what you put in.
If you don't study, show up for class late regularly, or don't show up at all, of course the professor is going to be rude to you. It's an insult to them, as well as incredibly rude to your classmates that do their homework, show up on time, and got their financial aid and registration in order six monthes ago.
I'm a computer science major, and I've worked my ASS off at this school taking calculus, physics, and chemistry courses. Check out the professors on ratemyprofessor.com before you take their class, obviously, so you know what your getting into.
Also, READ THE COLLEGE HANDBOOK. Most questions that some of these morons will wait 3 hours in line to ask, can easily be answered in 5 minutes by flipping through the handbook. Most deadlines or time relevant pieces of information can be found on their website.
The college also has an Honors program. Coming from a community college, this might not seem like a lot, but individuals haved transferred to Cornell, Welsley, and Georgia Tech from HCC's Honors Institute. This past year, I had the opportunity to travel to the Harvard Model United Nations with the Honors Institute and compete with people from Harvard, Yale, Penn State, the University of Beijing, and Notre Dame. Lastly, if HCC is the fifth college you've been to, and you still haven't gotten your AA, the problem might not be the colleges, it might be you...
