Am learning a lot
If you take bare-minimum classes, that is exactly what you will get out of your experience here. If you take challenging classes, you will be taking classes with other serious students who are looking to learn, and not just to get a degree.
Am enjoying being here
At times, this school seemed like another year of high school, especially in my General Education courses. However, I found I most enjoyed being at HCCC when I was around other students who were more goal-oriented. Also, HCCC has a beautiful campus; I enjoy looking at the town from the top of the hill and hiking on their trails.
Bang for the buck
HCCC is a SUNY school, so credits easily transfer throughout the SUNY system. Also, HCCC has a ton of transfer agreements with other 4-year schools in central New York.
Tips for prospective students
Show up to class! Especially in general courses, attendance is sometimes part of your grade. If you are absent, not only do you miss what's happening in class, but you lose more of your grade by not being there!

Also, keep in touch with your professors. Let them know ahead of time if you will be late, absent, or have to leave early. No promises, but usually they appreciate the gesture and will work with you so you won't fall behind.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for someone who doesn't know what they want to do... yet. By taking classes in what I was interested in, I met other students who were interested in the same things as me. That's how I decided what I want to: a friend in my class was taking the class because it was required for her major.
