I think my school is culturally as well as economically diverse. I see everyone from stay-at-home moms, fresh high school graduates, to recently laid off employees; or even people just refreshing their credentials or career. Also there seem to be many cultural group associations on the campus, there are groups of people from different cultures, communities and even relationships. At some points in between classes or walking around campus I get the opportunity to see the groups gather and intertwine all while further bettering their education.

Depending on your situation, the school does most of the paperwork for you. The classes are small and the teachers work close to you to make sure you understand the work.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I just filled out my fasfa, got independent status, and they delivered my refund money the next month after the semester begins. They are partnered with a bank called Higher One which if you don't have your own bank account, they can make one for you and you can use that bank forever for free(If you remain a college student). Tuition is cheap too. Somewhere around 2k.

The software doesn't always work properly, and there isn't really any help if you get stuck, you just have to figure it out yourself or skip it. The classes online are more structured, and all deadlines are very strict so you have to start on the assignments as soon as possible because they take a lot of time. Some exams cover material that isn't always in the textbook. It's all very self motivated work, you have to make yourself do the work because no one will remind you to do it or pressure you to do the work, it's up to you.

The industrial degree at the college is a lot of independent study. I have to spend several hours working on things that really stump me. I get frustrated sometimes because it's a lot of math and online programs to go with it. Sometimes it isn't explained as much as it should be. The teachers are cooperative and helpful if you feel stuck though. The students also help each other out as much as we can, too.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I had to keep completing the FASFA online because it wasn't going through to their office, there were almost always long lines for the student aid. I had to visit the financial aid office frequently, and I always end up getting sent different amounts for the tuition. It is just an awful experience and such a hassle to get accepted for your financial aid, then after you get approved for it, if you're not going full-time you only get a small portion of what you were supposed to get and I always end up having to pay out of pocket for it and if I had the full amount it would pay for my books and tuition.

There is a big dental program at the college along with industrial and computer science programs. The curriculum is taught in an easy to learn way. A lot of the work is online though, so you need to know how to use new technology and have internet to complete assignments. The workload keeps me pretty busy all the time so if you work and have classes you have a full plate. The registration process is the most frustrating part of enrolling in the college. Everything is online, the class list, the classes, and the scheduling. I don't like that some programs only work at the college. When I have to update passwords I have to be on a college computer to change or update it because when I try to change it on my laptop it won't let me change it.

The flexibility of classes is very good. I have been able to find classes I need and fit them all together very easily thus far. Financial aid is a hassle, but I believe that is more the fault of financial aid than it is of HCC's financial aid office workers. Those workers get frustrated also! I don't truly have any complaints about my experience at HCC. I also have been lucky and had my daughter to guide me along the way (she just got her associate's degree), so it may have been a different story without her assistance.

My experiences at HCC have been wonderful so far. All of my professors, with the exception of one this semester (and since this semester has just begun I cannot fairly judge him yet), have been excellent. Caring individuals who care about their students and how they are doing in their class. If YOU are willing to put forth the effort to succeed they are willing to assist you in this endeavor. Their are all kinds of opportunities for tutoring in areas such as math and writing if you need them. (Math tutoring, here I come!).

This is one of the best reasons for going to Henderson Community College. You are able to take as many, or as few, courses in a semester as you think you can handle. I take 12hrs of credits each semester, but was behind on my math skills so that has held back my graduation. Had I wanted to however, I could have taken more per semester to graduate on time. With this being said, I have not looked into intership opportunities yet.

Career services has been a huge help to me. They actually are the only way that I can rate this question right now. I do not know much of the alumni network, actually I know nothing about it, and not much about the job prospects since I have only used the career center to assist me in figuring out which degree I wanted to go for.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I applied for financial aid but was denied sayin my parents made too much. My parents make a comfortable living but do not have enough money to be spending $2000 a semester for 2 years. I have KEEs money from highschool but it barely puts a dent in the cost. Overall, the education is quality and the price per credit hour is the cheapest in the area but is still expensive to me because I do not get financial aid.

They offer a few typical majors but just offer the usual ones. I wish they offered more in the business area and in visual communication. The campus is small but very nice and they have improved a lot and are trying to include more student in activities.
College Junior 2013-01-12T02:30:42Z
There are a few activities to do on campus such as fitness center, theatre, small cafe, library, and there is a small student store. I am impressed on how much they have grown in the past few years and have a lot to offer for being in a small town.

Transferring my credits was pretty easy because my high school credits automatically transferred over to the community college except for Advanced Placement class test scores. Other than that one credit all my welding and other academic credits transferred over giving me a head start on my degree. When scheduling for a class we have to consult with our specially assigned advisers, who then recommend classes that will help further us in our degree and keep us on track with the career options we are planning on. After getting the approval of our advisers we are then able to enroll into our classes online. My adviser helps to work around my work schedule so that I can work and continue my college education.

In my building there is a wide variety of student types. There are students fresh from high school, there are students that are older that are continuing their education for job enhancement or just to keep themselves educated, then there are students there that are working on their general education courses preparing them to transfer to a university. Most students are going to Henderson Community College to complete their degree basics before transferring to another college to go further than an Associates degree. Everyone I've come across is serious about getting their degree, but are still friendly people to chat with before or after class for a short time. The college is a good environment with several places to go for help if needed.

More Labs Needed – I am satisfied with the computer network system at my college but I wish there was more labs available and longer hours available to study.

Classmates and Helping One Another – The nursing program has been really demanding. My advisor told me that I would not have a lilfe after entering the nursing program and that has pretty much been true. However, my classmates make it all worth it. We work as a team to look out form each other. I enjoy coming to class and look forward to study groups with classmates to bounce ideas off of one another. It keeps things interesting.

ACT Given to Much Weight. I chose Henderson Comm. College because it is close to home and my life circumstances at the time. I have jumped majors and few times before finally deciding that Nursing is what I wanted to major in. I am in the LPN program and will graduate in Dec 2012. The college offers a LPN to RN bridge program, I just found out that I did not get accepted because I missed the requirement of a score of 19 on the ACT test. I have an 18 and did not get accepted because of one point. I have maintained a 3.4 GPA through the LPN program but because of the one pt. I am lacking I am not going to be able to do the bridge program. I think the ACT is given to much weight for this reason.

The Other Student Is in Between – The facilities at the school is great the Library open later then the school so if you a last mintue person the library is always there.

Alot of Parent – It is more working parents going back to school to get a degree or get another skill. Many of the working parents have many different role they have to face on a daily basic. Also, they are more determine now in their life then in the past.
