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.

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

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