4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am currently working on getting my associate's degree in the arts before I transfer to a 4-year university. I am not entirely sure what I want to major in once I transfer, so I am taking the time at a community college to get a feel for what I like and dislike. Harper has made it really easy for me to take a variety of courses to help me explore. The workload isn't overwhelming and the teachers are easy to reach.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The class sizes are small which is good for the teachers to interact with the students and for the students to interact among themselves. The class registration process is easy and straightforward, and there are plenty of people you can go to for help in your college course planning. They also offer lots of study abroad options.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I mostly took my gen eds, but I was able to take electives in the fields of business and marketing. The workload was never too much for me.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most of the professor at Harper are great and seem to like their jobs. The registration process is easy to use, and there are many opportunities available. Students can study abroad and High School students can take college level course during their senior year.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I will be starting the nursing program very soon. Although we already have assigned readings due on the first day of class, I think we all know the program is going to be challenging yet stimulating at the same time. The professors have posted announcements, syllabi and lecture notes in advance. Although I definitely need some clarification on a some things, I appreciate the fact that there are no surprises. All the information for each class is posted. It is our responsibility as students to read the information in advance so we can ask questions when classes begin.
