Campus Resources: The academic counselors are terrible and will screw you over. They are just looking to make you spend more money on classes that you don't really need to take.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Class sizes are great! Most of them are small, so you can have a lot of one-on-one time. When you pick the classes, it will tell you how big the class should be and how many people signed up for it. The courses in the fall are great! There is a large variety of courses.

Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have never taken an online course.

Academic Experience: For my degree, Criminal Justice, the teachers are actually in the field, which really helps. You have comfort in knowing that these teachers are passionate about what they do in their regular field and they teach mostly at night as a hobby just to share their passion.

Academic Experience: A lot of the teachers are great. Of course, you will come across some teachers who are terrible (but that happens anywhere you go). As far as the workload goes, it really depends on the teacher. The summer classes are going to have a large workload because they are cramming a semester's worth of material and teaching it in about a 2 month span.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is hard to receive financial aid. They built a new garage with our tuition money and you actually have to pay in order to park there..so that is kind of a waste.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I have not attended the career center, so a review wouldn't be accurate.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: The people are actually pretty nice. However, keep in mind that it is a commuting school so people attend their classes and then leave. You may make some friends here and there, but it is nothing like a regular 4 year university.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not utilized the career center at Harper College.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I have not experienced any student interaction yet, but I am excited to join two clubs in order to get to know more students.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There were many choices for classes so flexibility was not a problem. The most hassle I had was with staff who had to help me with certain objectives. I felt like they didn't care as much as they should, or expected me to know what I was doing even though I was very confused because I had no experience with the problems.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken any online classes yet, but I am looking forward to finding one or two while I go to Harper College.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Harper College is convenient because it is close to home and I can work on my Degree here and finish my general education classes for a lot less money.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very cheap here among other schools. Harper College is definitely a place to start to get your Associates Degree. Financial Aid was very easy to manage when you get the help you need from experienced workers in the Financial Aid office.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: As a freshman, I haven't utilized enough resources on campus yet, but from what I understand, everything is incredibly helpful. You will find help wherever you need it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Each student gets 500 printing copies available for free. The computer labs are very clean and the whole science center has free wifi. That is very wonderful to have in a college.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Harper College campus is very large, and even though there is a lot of ground to cover, it is beautifully maintained. Walking to classes doesn't take too long and it can also be quite relaxing.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Harper Community College has one General Zoology class that I am very grateful for. It doesn't have any major zoology or animal biology programs, but it is nice to be able to get all the general education classes I need for when I transfer to a university that will offer a zoology major. The entire college is very beautiful, and I am happy to be attending this facility that is very close to home.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am very excited to go to Harper College because there are so many unique classes to take. There is an endless amount of professors and staff to help you along the way, and that is really important in a college environment. The class registration process was simple and did not take much time at all.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Love that there is more than 1 lab, so you can stay close to your classes.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Never had a problem with the 3 years I was there.

5 College Senior

Student Body: I only had good friends within the classroom but out of the classroom not a lot of interaction between students from my classes.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I truly wish that Harper was a 4year university, such a great environment.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Every time I went in and spoke with a counserlor it was nice and easy for then to answer questions and recommend what classes you should take for the following semester.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: It truly depends on who is teaching the course, if the teacher knows how to manage the time correctly then the class is a breeze, but if they are not, it is really hard to communicate with them.
