What is your overall opinion of this school?

My class size is fairly big. My teacher is strict but I guess discipline is beneficial in the long run. He is also fair. Workload is very manageable. The course may be fast pace but there is a whole week to study. I like the location of the college, nice area. The college is very clean. I feel secure there because right in the entrance there is a security desk with the least two or four security men. I like how it is up to date in technology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great idea for students who need a good start. It's an affordable community college that is friendly, challenging, and accessible to most people living in an urban area. It is highly suggested to students looking to get the best and most affordable education. Spend two years here, get your Associate's, then transfer elsewhere for half the cost. General education from here is a good way to get a collegiate foundation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great affordable options for finishing pre-reqs. The class size is usually pretty good. There are enough students to not feel pressured, but not too many that you can go to the professor for help. The school has a multitude of services, including a Writing Lab, Tutoring Center, Health/Wellness Center, and a Advising Office.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harold Washington College is a very nice college. It might not have all the things that other big colleges do. The professors that I have met are very nice. The process is simple. Getting help is very simple and finding things on your own is not difficult at all. There might be some problems, I am currently having my own difficulties but overall the college is great and very cheap if you want a place to start.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great start to college if you live in Chicago. It's affordable,accessible and reliable for education. There are students from many backgrounds here and the class sizes are small so the professors are easy to communicate with. Compared to a university It is better to start here for the transition after high school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This isn't really a party college or anything. It's a good community college if you need to take a few classes so that you can meet your major requirements. The cost isn't bad at all, especially if you live in Chicago. I would recommend this college for students who are planning on transferring to a four-year university and want to save money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would describe my time in HWCC as your average college experience. Nothing specifically stood out to me while I was there during my two years. It was a studious environment that was usually very clean and easy to navigate. There was never a time I felt particularly unsafe. I did appreciate the countless places to lounge around when I wasn't in class. The faculty was occasionally rude but overall, easy to work with. The teachers were typically easygoing. Overall, I'd say the experience was lukewarm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe the city colleges are a great option if you are trying to save money since you get a quality education at a lesser cost and after completing your Associate's degree which usually takes two years, you can transfer to a four- year university to obtain a Bachelor's Degree. Harold Washington College is located in downtown Chicago which is the main area for most businesses and our school is more focused on the business professions and they help connect students with lots of internships in companies around the area. The school also offers courses in the Sciences and Arts although Business is the main focus. I love the small environment and small class sizes we have which make it easier for professors to get to know students on a personal level. We have great professors and an amazing student government who see to it that student concerns are addressed. We have a couple of clubs and organizations for students to join and it is very easy to create a club of your own if there is a club you would like to start. We also have great resources on campus such as the tutoring center, career center which helps with resumes and jobs, the transfer center which helps students transfer successfully to 4-year universities, and the wellness center which helps students with any problems they may have such as stress or anything psychological. I would totally recommend attending Harold Washington since it's a great place to be and I would advise new students to get involved since its a great way to meet people and also develop yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harold Washington is a community college that aims to do just that: serve the community. Professors deeply care about their students and always make themselves available, the education is pretty decent, and there are plenty of resources to help you academically, financially, and mentally. It may not be the prettiest campus, but it does offer a lot to push its students toward their dream college. It's the perfect stepping stone into a four-year university or a trade career.
