    While most of the professors are great, the school itself isn't fantastic. It's a little outdated and does not have as much up-to-date equiptment as other schools. Also, I feel that registration and fincancial aid is a little unorganized and too swamped for how few workers they have. It can take hours in line to register at the beginning of each new quarter, and financial aid has also taken me at least two hours in line just to speak to someone who didn't seem to know what I really needed help with. I think it would be beneficial for HCC to get more organized and possibly hire teams who really know their stuff about financial aid and student registration.

    There isn't much to offer in my areas of interest and the location is not one that is very convenient. There also isn't much in the surrounding area that's of intrigue. However, the scenery is nice.

    The teachers that I have had make the learning enjoyable. I am in the education department and they know that everyone has different ways of learning and adapt to those styles. I could have transferred to Central Washington University and finished my AA but I enjoyed being here and to keep costs down I stayed. There are so many different events on campus that gets everyone involved. Multi cultural, women's studies, MLK, Diversity and a plethora of others
