It's good everyone is respectful. Professors work well with you and understand situatuions. Classes are tough and make you study.
Kaelin from Pena Blanca, NM
I love the atmosphere here at Highlands. Yes, it is a small school and a small town, but that is how I like it. I would rather be able to have my professors actually know who I am, rather than just have me as a number in their system.
