    Halifax Community College is right at the border of Roanoke Rapids but just does make the Weldon area.

    I have enjoyed being a student at Halifax Community College so far. It is good that I have lived in Roanoke Rapids all my life and to be able to attend college only ten minutes from my house, I am truly going to miss the drive next fall! Halifax Community College has great programs for anyone who is in need of a degree!

    Campus Safety

    Campus security is ever-present and very visible.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a variety of clubs and organizations.

    Great for these types of students

    Those who are looking to acquire a trade skill, an associate's degree or prepare for transfer to a 4-year university. It is affordable and the location is great!

    Bang for the buck

    A community college is the way to go if you are looking to save money the first 2 years before transferring to a 4-year university. Great education at a fraction of the cost!

    What to do for fun

    Even though it is a community college, there are always activities going on for students and the public.

    Food and Dining

    There is a snack bar...no cafeteria as there is no on-campus residency.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, as it is a community college.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are small in size, which allows for more one-on-one contact with instructors. I enjoyed all my classes!

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of all the community college has to offer. By registering with Student Support Services I was able to receive help (as a future transfer student) and also earned extra money as a tutor!

    In three sentences

    The instructors are hands-on and very helpful. Student Support Services staff is a godsend! HCC is very affordable and allows the student to acquire an Associates degree or acquire a great foundation as a transfer student!

    Campus Safety

    Campus security is top of the line. The officers are constantly making rounds, checking up on students and keeping an eye out for trouble in the less public spots on campus.

    Greek Life

    Its all Greek to me!

    Clubs and Activities

    There is the SGA, Male and Female mentoring programs, and that is about it.

    Great for these types of students

    Studious, Eager Learner, Adventurous

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a legend that the college is built on an old military science installation that was sunk into the ground after an unstable experiment eroded the ground beneath. Some say that a team of mutant agents of the government still operate out of the now underground base to this day and that HCC is a testing center for new biological and mechanical experiments. If you walk through the 100 building late at night, you can hear a strange tapping sound coming from the floor...following your every move.

    Bang for the buck

    Especially if you apply for financial aid and receive a PELL grant, the only thing you have to spend at HCC is your time. Be willing to learn and you will succeed.

    What to do for fun

    There are the events the college holds for students. And the cafeteria is always a place to find someone looking to play chess, Uno, or Mugen if you are into those types of games.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria has been remodeled and the kitchen has been handed over to some new cooks. The food here has never been better. Sandwiches, salads, and daily specials all at affordable prices.

    Dorm Life

    We have no dorms here.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes vary in difficulty depending on the subject matter and type of class. (On campus, Online, Hybrid)

    Tips for prospective students

    Study with peers, ask around about classes in order to build a balanced semester, and be sure to attend the International Food day.

    In three sentences

    HCC throws down a gauntlet to prospective students. You must decide whether to accept the challenge and strive for excellence, or whether to hang out with your buddies and let the years slip by. HCC is a great stepping stone for those seeking advancement in their career goals or wanting to better themselves in the rural area of Northampton/Halifax County.
