I spent two years going to Harper College part time while working full time and living on my own. I really enjoyed my time at Harper because they offered a great variety of classes in every subject, such as Womens History, Heredity and Evolution, and Childrens Literature. I was unsure what I wanted to do career-wise at the time, so being able to work at my own pace and choose from such interested subjects really allowed me to make the most of my time there and learn a lot. My classmates were all friendly, hard working, and from a variety of different backgrounds, which I found to be enlightening and beneficial. The campus was always clean, organized, and fairly easy to navigate, with a variety of snacks available at the dining areas and plenty of comfortable couches and seating areas for working on assignments.Almost all of my teachers were incredibly interesting and challenging, and made me look forward to class.

well I think that they did a good job making sure that if you didn't understand that you knew where you needed to go to get help and they would try and help you anyway possible I like that about this college

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.
