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.
It is a good school, though it has drawbacks that keep it from reaching the point of becoming a great school.
Harold Washington is a great two year school. It is easily accessible, being in Chicago's Loop. If you have any breaks, there's an abundance of things to do, as the campus is right by State Street and not far from Michigan Avenue. It was a great transition school, for me personally. The professors were always available and ready to help on top of keeping regular office hours. All of the classes I took challenged me and give valuable information. I had a lot of really good conversation with my classmates.
If I have any complaints, it is that Harold Washington College is very much a commuter school, but what I don't like in a school maybe exactly what someone is looking for in one.
Great no-frills affordable community college. More value than any large institution, highly recommend starting off here before heading to an expensive 4-year institution. Harold Washington will give you the opportunity to earn your credits for dirt-cheap and build up your GPA to rack in more scholarships later.

Transitioning into college life can be a difficult thing. As a young adult, it is the single most important life decision you will have to make. Trying to figure out what college to attend, or what profession to choose are all factors that will make a huge impact in your future. Believe me, I would know. This year was my first year back in college since getting my Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2010. My decision to get another degree was because the career choices I had made in the past was not fulfilling enough. Now, I have a positive outlook on life, and a clear direction of what I want to do. I think the most important advice I could give to future college attendees would be to not rush into the experience. Take you time thinking about your life goals. Once you have a solid direction of what you want to do, make sure you do your homework and research all possible options. It is also very important to work out a game plan financially. Make sure you don't take out too many loans that you will not be able to pay back in the future.
The best thing I consider about my school is their class sizes. Their class size is great because I get to interact with the teacher better than a big class size. It is also great because you can here what the teacher have to say and you can be yourself. What i mean by being yourself is that you don't have to be shy, you can get to know everyone.
