I can honestly say I have never been at a school where the teachers care so much about their students. My professors have always made themselves available for out of classroom assistance and are willing to go over tricky topics if you find yourself struggling. I love that the educators are flexible and willing to talk about ideas that are current to society and yet are still able to tie them together with the material of the class. Harper allows you to learn and grow simultaneously.

    All that you can ask for in a community college is here. Affordability, classes, clubs, academic programs, fast food, and excellent student services. My perception of community college has changed after attending Harper College and I now recommend anyone considering to do community college for their two years and then transfer to a university as a good option.

    At first, the campus is very complicated to navigate, but once you get used to it you'll absolutely LOVE it. There are plenty of accommodations for students such as a Starbucks, a subway, lounging stations, etc. The staff is friendly and the teachers are marvelous.

    The campus is a little hard to navigate at first, but once you get a hang of it, it is very easy to find everything. The resources they have are great and everything is fairly new. The parking lots are big so you can always find a spot somewhere.
