It looks to me like some of the reviews above were written by staff. Overall, it is a nice new campus, people are friendly although a lot of them seem lost when you have questions. The financial aid office has for all 6 semesters I have been here had some excuse about FAFSA being delayed. Our books are expensive and required, it seems like their abusing the system by not allowing us another avenue of receiving our payments. Obviously your third party is not efficient if you have delay us by 2 months every semester.
The best word I can use to describe my school is support. I've been attending Hartnell for 2 years now and since my first semester I felt like I already fit in. After my first day, just by mentioning my major, I was introduced to a long list of students and teachers that I should know to help me with anything from tutoring to transfer advise, even career options. I was even refereed to this site by another student who recommended I seek additional financial help due to my current situation.Once you find what you want to do with your life, you have a close nit of people all there to back you up and help you along the way. Our classes are difficult but we feed off each others motivation and help each other when necessary so we can all succeed together. Even the teachers and faculty make themselves available for you whenever you need their help. Hartnell's friendly staff have inspired me to pick a career choice, a school choice to transfer to, they update me with emails every day on scholarships and internships available. I've never met a bigger close group of people that I can rely on for advise and who truly wants nothing more than to see their students succeed and advance to the next step in life. They are our counselors, our advisers, and our family.
