    Admissions and financial aid are very detailed and helpful. Most classes are really a bang for your buck and all my professors have been really knowledgeable and able to talk to at a one on one level. The tutoring center needs better tutors and the student clubs aren’t that vast or made visible.

    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.
