    The students and staff at the Katy campus and the Stafford campus are very nice. You may encounter someone you know in the HCC hallways because it is a popular choice for local high school graduates who want to save some money or for high schoolers who want a head start. I enjoy the time I spend on campus, the layouts are simple enough not to get lost and you have plenty of parking!

    I enjoy my time here at Houston Community College because each class has taught me to open my eyes to the world and study and appreciate and value my education for every second it's worth. My professors are often humorous, challenging, strict, friendly, and very professional. I don't regret this decision!
