Highline is an amazing college! The teachers are all wonderful and help you to excel not just in class but so you'll become a better person in the future. The teachers are like a second family.
Tips for prospective students
Do you work! Study! Ask questions and you'll learn! Don't be afraid to ask for help because that's what the teachers are there for.
Academic Rigor
It depends what classes you take. Some classes are tough where you have to work your butt off and some where you just have to use common sense.
Dorm Life
Didn't experience a dorm life because I lived with my parents.
Food and Dining
There's a student union where you get all your food. Sometimes it feels like I'm in a restaurant, so many food choices and good prices too!
What to do for fun
Redondo Beach is a couple minutes away from college. It's a nice place to take long walks, get some fresh air and get away from all the stresses in college.

This college is pretty awesome! I know it seem cliché to say that but it is what it is. There is so much diversity! I moved here about 6 months ago from a small town in Minnesota. Everyone knew each other and there wasn't much diversity at all. moving here was a huge shift! The staff are great and campus looks beautiful. So far, Im loving it!
Tips for prospective students
Come here if you want diversity!
Academic Rigor
I love the professors.
Dorm Life
Can't judge, don't live in a dorm.
Food and Dining
Good food. Very clean place! Delicious coffee.
What to do for fun
Soccer field, basketball, hang around, play instruments and other sports, etc.
Bang for the buck
Good price... tuition is rising though:(

We love to play guitar user trees in summer.

Am learning a lot
I did running start through my high school and Highline was a great place to go. The administration was very helpful in making sure that I had me classes in order not only for my high school graduation but on track towards getting my AA.
Am enjoying being here
The teachers that I have had make the learning enjoyable. I am in the education department and they know that everyone has different ways of learning and adapt to those styles. I could have transferred to Central Washington University and finished my AA but I enjoyed being here and to keep costs down I stayed. There are so many different events on campus that gets everyone involved. Multi cultural, women's studies, MLK, Diversity and a plethora of others
Bang for the buck
College is expensive.... but at Highline it is so so worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Ask the people around you for their opinions on teachers. Choosing what teachers you have makes all the difference in your experience in classes.

Did learn a lot
Highline community college is one of the best community colleges in Washington state. I was able to learn everything i needed to learn in order to advance in my prerequisites and ready myself for my upcoming major in nursing. This college provided a huge diverse student body that allowed me to learn how to communicate and understand other cultures. It also provided me with instructors that always had time to help with their students and because of this I excelled in each one of my classes.
Did enjoy being here
Highline's diverse student body and its events are extremely enjoyable! I always enjoyed coming to school and always found other students I had something in common with. They have events going on in the student center almost every week and it always kept us entertained.
Bang for the buck
The community college route is ALWAYS good if you're trying to save money. It covers your freshman and sophomore years of college for over half the price of most universities.
Tips for prospective students
If a prospective student is planning to attend this school for Running Start or any other program similiar to it, I advise you to take full advantage of the program while it's free. Highline offers one of the best education, instructors and student body in Washington. Always stay focused on your education and you will easily excel.
Great for these types of students
All types of students would fit in this school. Its very diverse.
