  • HCC only has one campus, in Tampa off Dale Mabry, that has housing available for students. Therefore, I would suggest against it if possible since there are other campuses…

    food and dining is great due to the fact that the college is right in tampa it's right by all of the delicious restaurants down the street with variety of choices. if spending money on fast food/expensive resturaunts isn't for you they do have grocery store to pick out healthy affordable food choices for you and maybe even your roommates.

    I love the HCC campuses for their food. Big campuses have more of a selection, but they all have little restaurant/cafes in them and they have vending machines scattered around, which have mostly been completely stocked when i've looked at them.

    In the one semester I have attended, I've never tried the food. I see vending machines and I'm pretty sure that the cafeteria would taste like regular cafeteria food.

    We do not have an official meal plan here at HCC but what we do have is a cafeteria with Subway and Pizza Hut; however there are cafes in the area that make up for it. Plus we are close to a Walmart and some casual restaurants for days when your feeling fancy.

    Each campus (except Plant City) has a cafe area or cafeteria environment for chowing down. PLant city has recently started having food trucks come to campus on select days to make meals more available to students. There's some variety in beverages and foods. It's usually pretty good stuff, so give it a chance sometime!

    There is a local food place right on campus, that offers healthy food, at a reasonable price. They offer salads and wraps, made with healthier options. It's a really good option for protein to give you energy to get through long days of classes and work.

    The only Greek clubs are not fraternities, nor sororities. Phi Beta Lambda (the Business Club), Psi Beta (Psychology Honors Club), and Phi Beta Kappa (the honor society) are the only Greek letter named clubs.

    There are recycle bins in every classroom and outside. Also HCC has been tobacco free for about 1-2 years.

    The campus has a Phi Theta Kappa club(National Honor Society). Costs seventy five dollars to join. Through the Honor Institute you join the Arete club. All Greek clubs require a minimum GPA of 3.5 or higher.
