Highland Community College is a 2-year institution in northwest Illinois. Highland features four academic divisions granting degrees and certificates in over 60 fields of study and an honors program. Beyond the classroom, Highland hosts the International Preservation Studies Center training students in the conservation of artifacts and museum collections. Throughout the year, the college’s Ferguson Fine Arts Center presents numerous performing arts performances including two mainstage plays and the college chamber singers.
Highland is very down-to-earth and has a very homey feeling to it. Once I stepped on campus, I knew right away that it was the place for me. I am positive that others will find Highland to be just as welcoming as I do.
