Howard Community College features several unique elements across its campus, both inside and outside, that add a personal touch to each space.
Walking across the central quad, students can enjoy unique sculptures that are placed in a partnership with the Howard County Arts Council’s ARTsites program. Nine sculptures have been displayed through the program, with three being permanently installed on the campus.
In the Burrill Galleria, which is a central location for student life events and activities, flags from more than 100 countries represent the diversity of the HCC student body.
The lobby of the science, engineering and technology building features a three-story glass wall with the names of historical figures from the science, technology, engineering and mathamatics fields. The 14 buildings feature many small nooks for individual and collaborative learning equipped with comfortable chairs, whiteboards and decorative elements designed to inspire the more than 26,000 credit and noncredit students enrolled each year.
The college community works hard to make HCC a cool place to learn, work and grow. Students can make the most of their experience planning events and creating clubs around their interests. Faculty provide engaging and inspiring classes that help prepare students for the workforce or to transfer to four-year schools.
The faculty and staff keep the student experience in mind as they work together to design new learning spaces, whether they are classrooms for lectures or seminars to a full simulation lab complete with equipment used by real-word companies.
