HCC: Smart Choice for College

Students studying in Quad

Looking for the smart choice for your college education? Look no further than your community college – Howard Community College!

A recent editorial by the Howard County Times (Baltimore Sun) calls Howard Community College and other Maryland community colleges the “smart alternative” to the traditional four-year model. Why? As the editorial explains, community college professors love to teach, and you’ll find smaller classes. Community colleges also offer a diverse classroom with students of all ages and background.

The editorial also contends: “Armed with an associate’s degree from a community college, students often find they have a ticket to ride.” And that's right: Community college graduates have opportunities to participate in guaranteed transfer programs to Maryland four-year universities, plus employers recognize the quality education you’ll get at a community college.

If you want to read more, find the full editorial online here.
