Overall my experience at HGTC has been great. I decided to continue my education after i receive my certificate in Phlebotomy. I have decided to go for my associates in science and dual major with surgical Tech. Financial aid could be more organized. The administrative office is wonderful. The class schedules could be more i sync. Some classes have several hour gaps between them or the times cross over and makes it in possible to make an organized schedule.. I have only had one bad experience with a professor. things seem to be progressing in the right direction. I do wish we had a sports team to rally for.

HGTC has met my needs well. The teachers are all very helpful. Resources are very good as well. The only drawback has been getting the classes that I need for my degree program. They have frequently been unavailable to register for at the location or time that is needed.
