What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
i expected this school to be a joke because another two year school i attended was terrible. i was very pleasantly surprised because most of the professors are very good at what they do, teach relevant information, and engage the students with frequently entertaining lectures. some of the most memorable teachers that i've ever had are at this college and i wish i could drag them to whatever four-year college i wind up going to.

Georgia Highlands College is the perfect size for me! My classes are small enough that I get individual attention and help from my professors when I need it! The professors genuinely care about each student that they have!
