Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot at Howard Community College. The professors are friendly and supportive, and willing to help you succeed. Many of the professors are willing to spend extra time after class to ensure that you comprehend the material.
Am enjoying being here
I am enjoying my stay at the moment at Howard Community College. The staff and students are friendly. Not to mention, the well educated faculty giving positive insight on the upcoming semesters, among other things. Since nearly everybody is friendly and open, it makes it easier to make friends and feel right at home.
Bang for the buck
Since Howard Community College is a community college, it makes paying the tuition a lot easier versus at a four-year institution. In a way, you are paying a two-year institution price with a four-year institution education.
Tips for prospective students
I would highly recommend attending Howard Community College because not only is it full of interesting people, but it also gives you an opportunity to choose your major at a far reduced price. Howard Community College is a very unique college because it combines the effectiveness of a liberal arts school, and specializes in nearly all majors.

HCC is an amazing place to get your AA degree or your general education credits to transfer. There are so many classes and majors to choose from, the time really does fly by.
Am enjoying being here
Columbia Maryland is such a nice place to go to school and there are so many resouces at HCC. The campus is gorgeous, almost feels like you are at a big university, but on a smaller scale.
Bang for the buck
Well educated professors and PhDs teaching classes. There is FREE tutoring which helps 100%. There are so many computers and wi-fi spots on campus, and the library is a great place to get work and research done.
Tips for prospective students
Meet with an advisor and let them know what your future plans are so they can help you get the most out of your time at HCC.

I would give this institution a 10/10. Not because its the best school in America but because even as a community college it has truly created an environment that anyone can succeed in comfortably. Simply put, it is the same quality of education as a larger 4 year university at a better price.
Tips for prospective students
My tip for you is come in here with a plan for your future and if you do not have yet get started while your here.This is because this college is a great platform for you go on to do bigger and better things. Some come here unintentionally, such as myself, but by staying focused and having a set goal, utilize the readily available resource around to succeed.
Academic Rigor
The academic rigor of this school really relies on you. This school offers classes as advanced as differential equations that can challenge even the most serious engineers. But its up to you to take those classes.
Dorm Life
Sorry, as great as it is, it is still just a community college.
Food and Dining
The food is better than traditional campus dining. Also the chef, if you would like to call him that, does try to come up with creative new choose. There is also a Starbucks and sushi bar located in the cafeteria.
What to do for fun
Well, there are several clubs and organizations you can join that offer some enjoy. Also the campus is situated near a mall and a gym and track/field are available for recreation.
Bang for the buck
I would definitely say the you get your money is worth at this school. As I mentioned earlier it is the same quality education at better price.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
All that I can say is that anyone planning to attend should be prepared to meet some unique individuals.
Great for these types of students
Really this school is great fro everyone. Unless you really have your hearts set on going to a really big school. For that I can make no promises. But as for help and comfortably, I would it is incredible; after all, small classes means more help for you.
Clubs and Activities
I would be able to give you the full list but if you are in campus you definitely be able to see posters for any club your looking for, and if your don't it is hard to start your own. I have friends that have.
Campus Safety
There is absolutely no harm present on campus on any given day. Everywhere you look your bound to see a security guard somewhere or another.
