Herkimer College is one of our higher education gems in our own backyard! When my son told me he wanted to eventually open his own barbershop, I told him I had one request, to enroll in the Small Business Management degree program at HCCC. The experience he had with the amazing faculty and staff was second to none! The program at Herkimer provided the perfect foundation he needed to begin to pursue his goal. The small class sizes were definitely a bonus to laying that foundation. The topping was the Capstone opportunity provided which eventually landed him a full time job with his current place of business! The Mohawk Valley is so fortunate to have this gem in our own backyard!
Herkimer was an incredible experience for my son. I cannot say enough positive things about it. Excellent professors, incredible coaches (my son played for the baseball and basketball teams), and top notch facilities. My son found his second family at Herkimer and I wouldn’t change a single thing about his experience there and neither would he.
I am a 1977 graduate of Herkimer College, and my daughter, Katherine, graduated from Herkimer in 2019. I had a great experience at the College, and it was fun seeing all the changes made since I was there. Katie had very great times and many new experiences. It’s nice to have another bond between us: being Generals! Thank for the memories.
