What Students Are Saying

2.54 Average Rating
A very intresrting school; get good one on one attention by teachers when the help is needed. The school itself is very easy to get around from class to class or floor to floor. Overall the population is good not to crowded and not to empty; very diverse.
Cesar from Chicago, IL
its decent i get to meet new people which i love. You also have smaller classes and teachers know your name.At the end of the day it just seems friendly.
Tammy from Chiago, IL
I would rate Harold Washington College a 9 out of 10. Harold Washington College is a 9 out of 10 because this is a college that provides me with access to all the thing i need while pursuing my education. I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 because although the school provides a lot of help information to getting that assistance is poorly presented.
