| I have had a wonderful experience at Howard CC. As an international student, I needed a lot of information and help from the staff. All advisers for international students were amazing. I always received a very fast response if I had questions, one time I even received a response on Sunday night when I had problems with my visa! Not only the department for international students but all people working at Howard are very friendly and helpful. Wish I had the same experience at a 4-year college =( |

| Although community colleges often get a bad rap, HCC is an example of one gone right -- the faculty so far have been accessible and willing to discuss work, the campus is small but clean and well-kept, and the facilities are pretty nice, too. It's a commuter school, so naturally there aren't tons of social events. However, there's a big focus on getting you into good transfer schools. |
As a returning student, I find the former high schoolers kind of, well... they're teenagers: high-strung, a little neurotic, and obviously a little unfinished and awkward (that's what college is for, I guess). There are also quite a few adult students, however, and they're out to either learn and have fun or focused on bettering themselves. In fact, they're often the most serious in the classroom.
I was really impressed by the friendliness of the staff (one lady tapped me on the shoulder to warn me about a wet floor instead of sullenly glaring at me!) and the care they put into the art rooms. The area is also fairly nice -- it's in Columbia, which was one of the best places to live in the U.S. There's a mall nearby to grab food, although there's a campus cafe with cheap prices. It's also right near the Howard County Public Library. Bottom line: For the price you're paying, definitely worth it.
