Most Helpful Review for Holyoke Community College

What you learn here depends on what professor you have. There are some extravagant and amazing educators in this facility. For example a sociology class I had taken last semester was the best the teacher was so laid back but learned so much the things i learned in that class stuck with me. While others are more towards lectures and other such structured classes but in general you learn quite a bit for a community college.

    Holyoke Community College changed my life. I received a well rounded education at a affordable price. I paid for HCC out-of-pocket and my professors always supported me and understood my limitations.

    This college is the most diverse and progressive college in the area. Since most of their courses have been accredited to the rest of Massachusetts State Colleges and Universities, it is literally the most affordable option for any student in Western Massachusetts.

    Holyoke Community gets the job done as a 2 year school if you're planning to transfer to a four year. The campus is ok, definitely nothing special. The education itself its ok too, nothing special.

    Holyoke Community College is affordable. It is a great place to start right after high school or as a returning adult student. The staff is very helpful as a whole.

    The college can be okay in some ways. Some staff including professors, advisors, and others currently working at this college may help you. Others may not help you very much.

    If you need to save money, this is a great place to start off your future. If you want an education that is worth it and won't waste your time, go here and have your mind opened and many opportunities at your fingertips. Everyone starts somewhere, and sometimes a community college is the best way to go.

    Holyoke Community College is great for students that do not know what they would like to do. The career center really helped me to discover what I am interested in and what I have strengths in. Since HCC is so diverse it really developes your skills in thinking from many perspectives.
