Am learning a lot
Harold maybe a city college but the professors are passionate about their teaching and interaction with thier students.

Am enjoying being here
The urban area of the school's location brings people from many backgrounds and nationalities into one classroom for the purpose of continuing an education.

It is something that I enjoyed the most during my second semester at Harold. The experience of many of my classmates during a lecture in philosophy class made the class come life.
Bang for the buck
Financially it is very affortable during this time of crisis in our country. The best part is that most of the classes offer at Harold are trasferable to a four year university.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be discourage by the title of City College.
The college has many great professors that teach at four universities, therefore the work load is the same. Your saving a lot of money for the same credit that many students are getting into debt.
Great for these types of students
Any student that is willing to make the best of the two year college.

Especially those in financial crisis.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Good scol to go for the general requirements. Good practice before transferring or wanting to experience the college life in a four year institute.
Academic Rigor
it is challenging in times but you just have to put your mindset to it and not give up.
Dorm Life
I wouldnt know what to say on this one because i live around the area so its pretty easy to get there and stuff but from the surounding it looks decent.
Food and Dining
Food is great! Not only do you have a dining room inside but you also have many great surrounding restaurants around to get lunch from at a decent price.
What to do for fun
Go around shooping, visit famous landmarks, go to museums and sjust hang ou in Chicago
Campus Safety
The campus safety is great we had new panels installed only allowing students to enter with a school I.D. They security their also patrols the floors there on a regular schedule.

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.
Tips for prospective students
I would encourage students to plan and prepare before entering any college. I think that perspective students would enjoy attending this college and i strongly encourage doing so.
What to do for fun
For fun i visit the library!
Great for these types of students
This is a great college for:
Highschool Students
Transferring Students
Career Advancement Students
Campus Safety
Overall Great

The teachers really do have different things to bring at the table. From my Russian literature teacher, who loves that school. To my Puerto Rican Spanish teacher who always wants us to dance. They all have different ways to teach but they all want you to learn as much as you can! It's always fun!
Am enjoying being here
Because of how the college is set up, I personally don't enjoy going there. I mean, I don't like that you go there, and get out. It's almost like you're in a room of strangers that you see twice a week.
Bang for the buck
After all it is a community college so its pretty cheap!
Tips for prospective students
Don't fall behind!! it's like digging a hole, the more you dig, the harder it will be for you to cover it. Always think positive, and don't miss class.... EVER! because you miss SOOO much. trust me, i learned my lesson.
Great for these types of students
If you want to get your gen eds done and then transfer. Because I think you'll get the same or even better education than another university but cheaper. Also, I recommend having someone there to be a friend. Someone you can go to, if you are having problems. College life is hard; you shouldn't have to do it all alone.

Am learning a lot
I like coming to school because i really am learning a lot of things that i didn't get from high school. I like how the teachers are and how serious everyone is about getting their education and succeeding.
Am enjoying being here
The social environment is great. There are mature students as well as adults and there is no problem concentrating on work during the school day.
Bang for the buck
This college is pretty affordable. There is no problem with paying for school and a good thing about the classes is that you are able to transfer them to a lot of schools.
Tips for prospective students
Be sure to pay attention in class. its not good to get distracted or start missing class. Keep in mind that you paid for the classes and it will be a waste if you don't attend. Its good to study and do well in tests because in the end you will be happy with the results.
Great for these types of students
For any student who does not have the financial status to attend a four year university and anyone who wants to continue their education.
