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

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.

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.
