Justine Pereira
My experience at HCCC has been wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone! HCCC gave me the opportunity to go back to school at 27, while juggling between my personal life as a mom of three and my school life. Life is what you make it, but the professors and staff definitely helped it! I learned so much, got great support from faculty and appreciated the diversity of the people I met during the two years I studied at HCCC to obtain my Associate degree.
