Question
This College is horrible.Not so bright
This College is horrible. It is in the middle of nowhere. The only "hot spots" in Herkimer are the college itself, the local wal-mart and two bars - Brownies and Johnny C's( Or it could be Jimmy C's, I dont remember, nor do I really care). The dorms are disgusting. The dorms are apartment style, but they look like a low-income housing project. The RA's will rat you out! This is how they pick RA's: They get some Poor kid and offer him/her a free dorm room, in exchange they have to rat out there fellow students. At herkimer, underage (and Over-age for that matter) drinking are almost considered felonys. You get three alcahol "write-ups" and they kick you out of housing. The Campus Security Guards are losers who couldnt make it as real cops, this angers them, and they take this anger out on the students. Dating is almost non-existant. Decent Looking Girls are only interested in Rich Boys or Guys who are members of soccer or lacrosse team. The only upside to Herkimer is most (not all) teachers are easy graders, due to the fact they unexpiernced and untenured.

Question
I took one online course at HCCC.Quite BrightEducation
I took one online course at HCCC. I already have two masters' degrees, and am a very good student (3.7 GPA), and never in my life have I seen such lazy assholes running a school. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money, because once they get your money, they don't care at all. Prof. Carvin was arrogant and condescending, and posted his arrogance right on the course page, and not one supervisor had the balls to say one word to him.
