The HCC Times is published once a month and serves as the student body voice on news and issues; it also provides an opportunity for students to see their creative efforts in print.  Students are encouraged to share their writing skills, creativity, and opinions as part of the publication. HCC students may earn college credit for work on this publication.

The HCC Times provides opportunities to highlight your skills in photography, desktop publishing, layout and design, advertising, writing, and reporting.
