    This school is okay I suppose, it's cheap and would cut costs oppose to going straight to a four year, frankly I couldn't wait to transfer and go to a REAL school. Often at times during registration you may get the turn-around, meaning those that work there may give you wrong information and have you going around in circles. Harold Washington college needs to seriously get better organized and do something about their over-crowdedness also get their elevators inspected because they suck.

    Overall, Harold Washington is a good school with very dedicated professors. The professors try to make sure you understand everything to the best of their abilities. Also, I feel safe when I am on the campus since you have to swipe your id to get past the first floor and gain entry into the building.

    This school is unorganized. The staff are very rude and condescending. 50% of the teachers are the only thing that make this school worth while.

    The school is in a convenient building in the heart of downtown Chicago. The registration process is a nightmare. The professors and resources available are wonderful here.

    This is a great community college that offers many resources for first-time and transfer students to easily transfer smoothly over to a 4-year institution for their bachelor's degree. The professors and stafff are more than accomodating to students' and their personal needs. Every students needs and requests are equally important.

    I would give it a 4 out of 5. It is way better than the rest of the city colleges, but at times it is hard to get settled unless if you really try. After you get settled, everything runs smooth.

    Harold Washington college is the perfect junior college for students looking to transfer into a four year university that is culturally diverse. It is right in the heart of downtown Chicago so you get the feel of urban studies and opportunities. No matter what, you will leave this school a changed person and feeling like you can accomplish nearly anything.

    It's an okay school. The teachers are great but the advisers don't seem to actually help. They threw out a program without telling the students.

    It is a very small school, but it is not the college experience I want. Some professors are great at teaching their subject. They take the time to go back and review what we learned in the previous class.
