Career Services: Harper College offers many opportunities for students after graduating. The career center offers counseling and educational planning to aid students in finding careers.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors that I have had at Harper, so far, were all incredible. Each one would take the time to make sure students were on track and doing what they were supposed to do to be able to pass the class. There is an extremely wide range of courses available at Harper. The class sizes are pretty small, ranging from fifteen students to almost thirty.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for students to get careers after graduating from Harper. First, the college offers many on-campus jobs that help students in their field of study. Also, many employers post notices of job offers all around the school. There is not one building on campus that will not have some posts about a job for graduating or part-time students.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: As a history major, I have loved all of the classes and professors in my major. The teachers are all extremely knowledgeable about their specific area and are very clear in their lectures when describing historical events. I appreciate that the professors talk about events and ideas that were left out of my previous history classes. This keeps all of my history classes exciting and something I can look forward to every time I go.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of the teachers I have had over the past two semesters have been extremely helpful and understanding. The campus is not that big so all of the buildings are fairly close together. If given the choice, I would definitely choose to go to Harper again.

Academic Flexibility: All of my credits from Harper transferred to Eastern easily. I just mailed my transcript to Eastern and the admissions department took care of the rest. I'm on track with Eastern which is a relief.

Career Services: The counselors at Harper helped me pick my classes, however I feel like they were not thinking long term when I transferred. My only complaint was that every time I requested to see a counselor, I would get a different one so I didn't feel like they knew my problems that I had in the past.

Overall Experience: I'm rating the courses as just okay because like with anything else, I had amazing professors, and some professors that i wasn't happy with. I had a couple of classes that really made an impact on my college career and I'm grateful for that! I mainly took my general education classes so I got a wide variety of classes and class sizes.

Overall Experience: Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Harper. I'm transferring to Eastern Illinois University this fall and I feel like Harper helped me in many ways. For instance, instead of jumping into a four year school, I got to ease my way in and still get the college workload, but I was living at home and working as well. The counselors at Harper were very helpful and ensured that my credits would transfer.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Harper opened up many opportunities for me while I attended there. Since I was majoring in Elementary Education, I took my Gen Ed's and also a few education classes. In my education classes, I learned a lot and got to observe on a different couple of occasions. I feel like I got the most out of my education. All of my classes were very flexible around my work schedule as well. I had a lot of free time between classes, making it easy for me to study and finish my homework so that way I wasn't overwhelmed when I got home.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed my experience at Harper College. I felt confident in the education I was getting and felt that the teachers wanted me to succeed. It was perfect for me because I got to work two jobs while going to school and still felt balanced. I lived at home to save money and the commute every day wasn't bad!

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It is often not stressed well enough that the classes taken even during the first semester will largely determine how hard you have to work the next 3 semesters, as any class taken that won't transfer will only set you back.
