Campus Life

There's plenty going on outside of the classroom at HCC!

At the Bartley Center for Athletics & Recreation, you'll find a three-court gymnasium, fitness center, multipurpose studio, steam and sauna facilities, and classes in everything from aerobics to Zumba. Looking for athletic competition? HCC is serious about sports, including baseball, basketball, volleyball, golf, cross-country, and soccer. A member of the National Jr. College Athletic Association NJCAA and the Massachusetts Community College Athletic Conference, our teams compete at both the state and regional levels.

With 30 active clubs to choose from, HCC students have plenty of opportunities to connect, share interests, and organize events. Clubs run the gamut from interest (anime, chess) to identity (Muslim, LBGTQ) to academic (business, psychology). Don't see the club you're looking for? Start one!

When you aren't on the soccer field or getting together with club members, you can have fun at Spring Fling or Welcome Back Barbeque, or sit back and enjoy the speakers and entertainers that come to HCC each semester. Want to get out of town? The Student Clubs & Activities office organizes regular trips to New York City to catch a Broadway play, shop, visit galleries, or just enjoy a change in scenery.
