The higher education "learning" experience that Hesser ColleQuite BrightOther
The higher education "learning" experience that Hesser College promises is laughable. The college has five campuses in NH. I was a student at the Nashua campus and also worked in the front office part time in Nashua and Manchester for my work-study. This is where I got a behind the scenes view of just how unethically the staff of this college conducts itself. I regret continuing with the enrollment process, even after Financial Aid messed up my loan application. No one was ever available to speak with, including the loan officers, and especially the Academic Advisors - whom we were told had an "open door and no appointments necessary" policy. HA. That would be true, if they were ever in their office, or not on their cell phones, hanging out in the bathroom or outside smoking when students stop in! How unprofessional. The management of the Admissions Dept. uses tactics to bring in new students that are borderline criminal! For instance, I received a letter in the mail stating the college was offering me "conditional acceptance." HUH? Then, a few weeks later an actual "Acceptance" letter to Hesser College came in the mail. Trouble was, at that point, I'd never even applied for admission! The school's academic standards are a joke, the course load is a joke. The admissions staff is a joke. There is only one nice person working in Financial Aid (Thank you Deanna, for straightening out Christine and Maggie's mess!). I had more challenging/interesting assignments in high school. The instructors at Hesser -- there are very few actual professors, btw -- are ill-prepared, or flat out no good at dealing with the deadbeats that are only enrolled so they can stay on welfare and not have to work. The federal govt. gives Hesser money to not only pay these students' tuition, but also their living expenses, so long as they can prove they are enrolled at the school. Class registration is an unprofessionally-run, pathetic ordeal, with just two people enrolling a hundred or more students for classes in one night. The building itself is not maintained. There were constantly ceiling tiles being replaced, flooding in the classrooms, mold, stinky rooms, and light bulbs that were never replaced, even though the front desk and instructors knew about the problems. The two people running the whole dog and pony show - the dean and the admissions director - are clueless! No wonder so many students end up dropping out in the first few months. A degree from Hesser College is worthless in the real world job market, and laughable. This "college" has reprehensible standards and should be shut down for at the very least investigated for financial aid fraud. I wish more people would post their comments about Hesser here, as there are so many I've talked to that are upset with how the backward and dishonest way the college operates.

I am a mom of 2 boys.AveragePsychology
I am a mom of 2 boys. Going back to school is a hard thing to do. Hesser name it easer for me. I got to transfer the credits I was bring in from another school.(UOP) everything is there on campus when the students are there. We have night courses and if you need your FA or AC they are ther at night if you need them. It is not a 9 to 5 job for them and I am treated like a person not a student number or just money.
