    Highland was just the college that I chose to attend because it was the closest. However, now that I have had a year and half being there, I know I wouldn't have chosen another college. Highland is great because of the friendly atmosphere, the individual attention the teachers give the students, and the way the college actually cares and responds to issues the student body presents. I love to tell my friends back in Kentucky about Highland because I'm so happy that I'm a part of Highland Community College.
