I thoroughly enjoyed my time at HCC. After having tried to make it at a 4 year university with extremely large classes, the transfer to a small community college was perfect for me. The smaller classes meant more individual attention. With one exception I found the professors to be more patient and more approachable. HCC has a wide variety of two year programs as well as programs to prepare a student to move on to a four year university. If I had it to do over I would go to HCC first before going to a major university. HCC now has campuses all around the area, not just the Dale Mabry & Davis Island campuses that I attended. I would reccomend this school to anyone.
I chose to go to community college because I couldn't afford to go to a university. There is more than one location in the Tampa Bay are and I attended two of the locations. It wasn't the best college in the United States, but I still enjoyed my time there. I had great professors. One was even like a mentor to me. I studied Justice Administration, and I felt that the classes were challenging. I met some great people there. The campus life was almost non-existent compared to a university, but I didn't really mind.
