Fall quarter is my 4th quarter at Highline College, and so far it has been amazing! I absolutely love all the staff, and although it may be pretty difficult at times, the professors are always helpful.

My overall experience at Highline has been positive and educational. I decided to come back to college later in my life. The professors was willing to work with me and help me put together a plan for my classes that would work for me. I received my AAS in Human Service with honors and now I will be going back to Highline to continue my education. I chose to go to school again at Highline, because they made me feel welcomed and taught me a lot. Thanks.
