Hey everybody! I'm going to attend HCC this fall as a freshman, and I was curious about which professors are the best/worst/easiest/hardest. I'd really appreciate some feedback. :) Thanks!

My favorite professors there are Steve Mark, Henry Schissler, Scott Empric and Stephanie Hart.

Steve Mark runs the journalism program and is so passionate and friendly and wonderful. He changed my life. He's very demanding of his students, but you'll learn a lot, and never stop laughing while doing it. If you have any interest in writing at all, and you have a livejournal so I am assuming you like to write, take Publications 1. It's a Communications class, something like Comm 116. I highly reccommend it.

Henry Schissler is a sociology teacher who will just blow your mind with his lectures. He's easy if you show up every day, because he excuses you from the final if you're there every single time. However, he does insist on several projects and papers through out the semester, but those aren't hard if you're paying attention.

Stephanie Hart was my Creative Writing teacher and she taught me so much. She teaches a bunch of literature and English classes, and she's just very knowledgable.

For English 101 I reccommend Scott Empric if you can find him teaching it. The comments he gives back on papers are immensely helpful. He's also funny and sweet and nice.

Other teachers that I highly reccommend include Professor Hilli for Chemistry, Professor Zajdel for Biology, Professor Cockerham for Math and Professor Ulisses and Leo for English.

I would avoid Professors Chiapetta (You won't learn anything, all he does is talk about Vietnam), Maloney (She's nice, but she doesn't check the accuracy of her information, one time she taught us from stuff she pulled off a Scientology website), and Kindilien (He's smug and annoying and takes points off quizzes for spelling mistakes).

The other thing I would reccommend is taking Spanish and Pre-calc at HCC if you intend to transfer. I'm going to Columbia in the fall, and I am kicking myself for not taking those classes at HCC while I could.

Thank you so much! *worships* You've no idea how much this helps. I'm going to add this post to my favorites just to make sure I have your comments. :) In high school I took Latin, never Spanish, and I hate math and science. :p But I guess I'll see what happens. I'm taking the placement test tomorrow, and then after that I suppose I'll talk to my adviser, when I get one. :p Thank you so much again!

Hi again! Well, I've just completed my schedule, though I've yet to submit it. I thought I'd let you know, and I'd also like to ask what you think:
Western Civ I; Mon & Wed; 9:30-10:50am; Staff
Composition; Mon & Wed; 12:30-1:50pm; Hart
General Psych I; Tue & Thur; 9:30-10:50am; Staff
Intermediate Algebra; Tuw & Thur; 12:30-1:50pm; Anderson
I think I'm happy with that. I have lots of time between classes to study/eat/nap, and a three day weekend! XD Plus, I'll finish the day early enough to work. ... Well, I need to find a job right now, so, yeah.. Anyway, any feedback you'd like to offer would be so much appreciated. Really. I'm a scared lil freshman, and I've no idea what I'm doing. I have to come up with $450.00 ASAP so I can register. *yikes* Thanks again. :)
