My advice to those who are going to HCCFeb 06 2013Unknown
My advice to those who are going to HCC that is not a good option. Your better off going to another college who can really respect student's regards and not getting their plans manipulated. Do not fall for this "note" sent down crap. They have obviously lied to you.
SAT: 980 Male

Rolling admissions.Be prepared to take a placement test before beginning classes. How you do on these will determine if you need to retake high school math or english.
The only reason I came here was because itSep 28 2010Other
The only reason I came here was because it was close to home and that the college I originally planned to go too but I didn't recieve enough financial aid so hcc was were I had to go to.I wouldn't recomend this campus to anyone.For anyone with a creative eye...this college is not for you.There's no sense of creativeness or energy to feed off of.Everyone is here at this college just to be there.Its a waste of time and money.Even much of the professor's see it to be the same, its basically highschool part 2.It's hard to get your point across when people see you as just another number here.They only have one week in the begining of the semester to either add or drop a class...As I see it though you need at least 2-3 weeks to tell if you wanna stay in a class or not "They'll slap you with classes and are just looking at your money its technically not enough time...its your money your spending not theirs be careful spending it on your classes".It in its entirety afterall it is a community college parking and transportation is horrible too so be wary on that.I'd only recommended this college only if you don't know what ya wanna do with your life just yet its a starter so you won't waste as much money later on.If you have the money, go to your college of choice if you know what career you wanna pursue but other than that don't come here unless you wanna waste your time and money!
