    The students and staff at the Katy campus and the Stafford campus are very nice. You may encounter someone you know in the HCC hallways because it is a popular choice for local high school graduates who want to save some money or for high schoolers who want a head start. I enjoy the time I spend on campus, the layouts are simple enough not to get lost and you have plenty of parking!
