Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

Overall this school is a good school. Though it doesn't have a campus feel, it makes up in convience. With its fast food spots to get a bite to eat during breaks and stores to buy anything from school supplies to clothes in between classes. I loved that it's rig next to the bus terminal and train station so you can live anywhere and be able to get to your class fast. Teachers here are very diverse just like the student body and school resources personnel so no matter what language you speak fluently I'm sure a staff or student could help you. If your interested in coming to his school my advice is to do everything early like scheduling classes, purchasing books and especially applying for financial aid.

Overall Rating

I only realized how great this college is until I transfer to a different community college, I noticed the contrast in the first semester and I can tell for sure I wish I could go to Hudson. HCCC is great because it really focus on the student's development and learning. I found the best professors in there, always whiling to help and they are passionate about teaching. The classes schedules are very flexible with weekend classes. It is a very diverse campus and very laid back.
