5 College Senior

Student Body: Highline Community College is known for its diversity. There are all kinds of people, from different places all over the world. Thankfully, I do not sense any racism. On the contrary, students seem to get along quite well, wether they be strangers or not. I have made many new friends including some from Ukraine, Laos, Japan, South Africa, and many more. There is also a great respect for religious beliefs among the student body. Students here do a great job of making life at Highline easy and fun for each other.

3 College Junior

Student Body: It's so diverse, and a lot of the students have English as their second language.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Growing up, I've been very used to different cultures and at Highline I feel right at home.

5 College Senior

Student Body: I really like this school and the students. They all are very friendly and helpful. This school is very diverse and you get to know many different types of people and get to learn their culture.

3 College Senior

Student Body: As my school has lots of international students and housing is far away from school and not manageable for the housing, I feel little disappointed and most of the native students are hard to make friends,too.
