Houston community college is a great school and I learned a lot about college life how things work;dos and don'ts through the staff at Houston Community college. I always wished I knew everything there is to know about colleges but I guess a person can't always know every little but I should keep asking when I am stuck in a problem . For me personal I feel or what concerns me with academics is learning I thinks sometimes I am learning or not and this question still in my mine but I guess I need to keep study and test myself to see if I learned my studies. I had many professors but there not all good or bad, some professors are the best and some OK and there was the worst of the horrible ; I am not talk in the direction of the way they acted all of them were sweet and nice , but teaching ,like I remember one professor was horrible I can,t understand a thing he was say it but there was five professor that I loved they were beyond great I feel the class was like a easy A but overall from 1 to 10 I when give the professor that I look a rate of 6. There is no really way to getting around in college I say that because no two are the same each person is different from one another. I will say this and i mean it in college they always provide tutoring for every subject and even online help to me at is a great help in many ways. All I just typed was what I saw, learned and experienced in this great school.

At Houston Community College, the environment is very pro student. The classes are small, and in my experience professors are readily available to give extra guidance or accommodate for extenuating circumstances. The care and attention to student needs was most demonstrated by Professor Marshall. He designed and opened an English literature class specifically with second-language English speakers in mind.
