College Junior

Online Courses: We don't have any online courses available, but they have mentioned it becoming a possibility in the future.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Unfortunately, the school is dissolving my major due to lack of enrollment and the students are being transitioned into another program. I'm disappointed that they did away with my program after only a year of it being offered, but I understand that its not worth their while if they aren't making money either.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Harrington is a very streamlined approach to the college experience. Academically, they offer a good range of classes, but they are very focused on the programs offered. They're not a liberal arts college, so you can't take random classes to fill up your schedule, but they do have great design classes.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is fully stocked with almost every book imaginable for design. The school provides many campus activities such as career fairs and competitions.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The techs are efficient and get things working in a timely manner. wireless network is available for students with their laptops, iPod, and phones. Printing is great you pay an initial fee at the beginning for the semester and there is print lab which you can print photo quality prints or very large prints.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Carolina Garcia is great! She is very helping in locating job opportunities as well as internships. Even getting your portfolio together is less stressful because of her.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school is great. I do very well in classes receiving A's and B's in my classes. The projects are fun to work on and really help build a structured environment for the future on turning out projects for a company.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They do have a flat fee of $5,000. So it is best to get your moneys worth by grouping up classes. Everyone in the financial aid department does their part to make sure that you are getting your best value and try their best to alleviate money issues.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Making friends at school is a very easy thing to do. There are opportunities for group projects in most classes and currently many french students have joined our student body. So they are culturally diverse. You get to learn alot about other countries like England and Australia and Germany.

1 College Senior

Online Courses: There are no online classes at Harrington.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: When you get into your core major classes the schedules become less flexible and they only offer one or two days for availability for those class and specific times. Not allot of credits actually transfer over because the classes are so specialized.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The school is designed in such a way that it is in itself is a learning experience. There is exposed piping from above so that as student you can see how a HVAC system is put in. Also, many ADA codes can be learned just from within the school.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Harrington College of Design has been specializing in Interior Design for over 75 years now. Their program has adapted over the years to fit in with today's work environment. Teachers are working professionals and are very helpful to answer question on projects and work related questions in the actual field. The funding towards the school is great and that helps to provide us students with computers and supplies at the school. As well as a fully stock library.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Harrington provides a unique curriculum that is geared towards your major. the teacher train your brain to think a specific way to deal with design related problems; so that you can come to a unique solution that is budget conscious and time conscious.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Harrington is an institution of great information. The instructors are knowledgable and helpful. It is too expensive.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse but tend to be all women.

1 College Senior

Career Services: I have not really been informed on what post grad services are available.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is quite a bit for a school that will not even stay open 24 hours to allow students to work. Financial aid department is extremely helpful and very friendly.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are only 3 majors offered at Harrington. Coming from a large university I feel that there is much more attention placed on each student here. Many of the Professor also have in field connections that will help when graduating.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Most professors are involved and will go out of their way to help and assist you.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school's financial aid office is not onsite and can only be accessed via the phone. Financial Aid can be very confusing and scary and its frustrating that there isn't anyone local to the school to answer questions. That being said, I have gone to the Finance Department a few times and they have been very helpful.
