Bad Idea I went to HCCC back in late 70's and it was by far better than Mohawk Valley. HCCC was accredited by Middle States and Mohawk Valley couldn't get that accreditation.....To my knowledge it was sometime in the 1990's

It sure has in so many ways and not for the better. Seems that back not quite so long ago Herkimer was a nice small town with very little crime. Alas the demise of Standard Furniture, Library Bureau and Quackenbush changed things. As the town changed to a more serviced (College support) economy the new jobs paid a lot less. Add to the fact that outsiders bout most of the downtown apartments and turned it into "Little Bronx". Sure we can say that we are hopeful of a nano center but computer chips are made in third world countries. Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia, where labor is a few cents an hour. These plant are also highly automated and if one remembers we already lost that sector of the economy many years ago. Remember Remington Rand, Mohawk Data Science? Correct no more and today Union mentality of I am worth $25.00 polishing a barrel on a gun solidifies that thought.
Maybe you can take your 2 yr Associates Degree and get a job managing a Pizza place or go to work for the State on a tier 6 pay scale and envy some old person that get Social Security,Medicare and a little bit of some pension for Remington back when DuPont owned it.

McDonald's, Burger King, Tier 6, new lower paying Folt's and yes of course maybe you can scrape enough money up to open a place that takes General Herkimer Dollars.
