WHAT I LIKED

I started out my college career at a 4-year university but ended up continuing my education at Harrisburg Area Community College. I was able to find success at HACC due to the small class sizes and attentive professors that wanted their students to do well. I also gained an appreciation for being a non-traditional student and enjoyed my time getting to know other non-traditional students of different ages and backgrounds.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Unfortunately, the class offerings can be limited. This is especially true for science classes, and my time at HACC involved a lot of extra travel to get to a campus that offered the class I needed.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I like how the professors genuinely care about their students and their success and they genuinely want to help.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like that because it was a community college I feel like there were some resources that we didn't have, such as good lab equipment.

WHAT I LIKED

I had genuine connections and interactions with my professors. Certain ones became invested in my education and offered advice and guidance for continuing on to a four-year school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school lacked funding and had to close the campus that I first attended. Classes were also sometimes unavailable for this reason.

WHAT I LIKED

I truly enjoyed the professors. Everyone was eager to help you achieve your goals. They had a tutoring center and I took advantage of that especially because it was free. So many good friends and a wonderful coffee shop. Great study spaces and access to many books, printers, and scanners.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some online courses were not as in-depth as in person. The professor did not seem as connected which maybe because it was only virtual.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There isn't much I didn't like, more like I found the textbook online situation a bit complicated.
