Hey everyone. I am Danielle, 19 and registered at here.
I have not actually taken any classes yet this school year. I am looking for some general classes to take because I am not 100% sure what I was to get my associates in, I am thinking Nursing, but I am still not 100%.

What are the good programs here, and what are some over all just cool classes that I can take?

I'd highly reccommend Publications 1 with Steve Mark, if you like to write. Tony Ball is the history teacher to take. Sociology 101 with Henry Schissler is also a blast.

I'm in the journalism program at HCC, and it's really good. You learn a lot and get some real world skills. Plus it's fun and stressful all at once.

Can you pick who your teacher is? Or do you just get whoever?

Yeah, you can pick who your teacher is. When you go through the schedule you can see the teacher's last name in one of the columns.

That is good to know...

Have you had any problems with Financial aid?
That is the only real reason that I still have not started classes, they keep telling me I am getting a "pell grant?" I sign all the papers, ect. and then the "grant" does not come in, in time for me to start classes, and then I have to wait till the next semester or pay out of my pocket, and they tell me I will be paid back.... But I don't have an extra $1000 just laying around!

I paid out of pocket, 'cause I'm married and wouldn't qualify for financial aid. I know the college has a payment plan system where you pay like $300 every month of the semester. You should check that out.

I looked into the payment plan. It is out of control.
They want your full tuition paid within something like 2 months. It is like $400 up front, then so on...I would have done that IF I could have afforded it.

So you can't get aid if you are married? I am engaged to be married over this coming summer... That's kind of stupid!

Well, you can get aid. My husband has a full time job that he's not doing too badly at. So, I'm able to go to school full time, it's nice.

Congratulations on getting engaged. How long have you know him?
