WHAT I LIKED

Houston Community College is great for those who are just starting out in college or those who are in a transition stage. You get to adjust to college life and experience different types of learning platforms. Plus, the schedules are pretty flexible, so there's something for everyone! Student life is also active, so there are plenty of clubs and activities to participate in!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Sometimes, it can be a little hard to reach an advisor by phone, so it might be better to shoot them an email or see them in person.
