    I highly recommend attending howard community college. The classes there are well orchestrated and the teachers are willing to work with you if you put in the effort to connect with them. The school is a great place to go to transition from high school to college and the Silas Craft Collegians Program is one of the best on campus. They provide ways to pay for college, one on one assistance in anything you may need help with, and they are a wonderful resource when needing help around campus and even off campus. HCC is a really good school and i wouldn't be surprised if it's a heavy competitor to universities.

    I love Howard Community College. They have great student activities, and I've made a lot of friends here. They really do care about their student population. The only thing that is negative is the fact that you can't live on campus and get away from home.

    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.

    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.
