Harrisburg Area Community College (Harrisburg Campus) is pretty awesome, and I recommend it. As a photography major, the facilities available to the students are top notch, as it has one of the best photo programs in the country. My professors are earnest in wanting to provide a meaningful education for their students, and if you study hard you'll get good grades. Of course, you'll get some bad apples in the bunch, but thankfully I have only had to deal with one bad professor--and this is my third semester.
HACC is pretty much reserved. As the architecture may be older, the insides are continuously updated without being a hinderance or an eyesore.
I have good relationships with all the ART professors at HACC, and they're some of the coolest people to get along with. They are eager to help if you put effort into it. To be honest, it can be frustrating how nice they can be at times. I'm not saying that it's all fake, but some art students who literally have no talent in their field are getting praised because they took a picture of a pretty flower. I'd recommend telling them to cut the bull-shit and tell you how it is.
Grease, Grease, Grease, Subway! I don't really know what else to say, except that the addition of the sub-sandwhich based food chain in this school is a miracle. Though it's typically pretty busy, you can count on Subway to keep you away from cheeseburgers, onion rings, and artery clogging foods. I'd brown bag it if you're not interested in spending money.
They're easily accessible, so have fun!
WRAP UP: I don't have that much experience with any of the other majors or professors, but if you're an Art student who wants a great education at a low price, HACC is a great contender. Remember, the Harrisburg Campus!

| I go to the York campus of HACC. At first, it seems like a nice school. Nice people, and the inside of buildings are clean, although quite boring. It feels more like an accounting firm than a school. The York campus has literally no sports or interesting extracurricular activities, the teachers are nice but are bad at communicating, and are not able to teach very well. If you are not able to gain enough points in two semesters, you are put on academic suspension, meaning you can't take classes, and your financial aid is withheld. There is no help in deciding on teachers for classes. No one knows anything about most of the teachers, due to the nature of the college, the teachers are only hired per-semester. Some teachers are very strict, and some are very lenient, but none of them told me anything about what I needed to do to keep my grade up, or whether or not the assignments counted for points or not.(My MATH051 teacher came from Ukraine, and she went WAY too fast for the class. We started with around 30 people, and eventually went down to around 12.) The computer software is very out-of-date, due to Windows being essentially reinstalled every time the computer restarts. This hurts students trying to take computers classes, as the browsers and operating system are/is out-of-date. HACC York is the newest campus for HACC, which may be part of the reason why it is so poor, but this is unacceptable. I paid money to be taught, so TEACH ME.I went to Central York High School. The teachers at HACC pale in comparison to CYHS's, and the same can be said about the administration. If a public school is so much better than a college that the two can't even be compared, there is something wrong. |

| I just finished my first year at HACC(Lancaster Campus) and it was quite interesting. So far all my business professors were helpful and eager to help students succeed. The student body is VERY DIVERSE. It is not hard to make friends and get along with everyone. Just be yourself and you will do just fine! |
