Olive Harvey College is a great school to start one's education because the school feels close knit where students or visitors can access most services with ease. The school has an active spirit for sports and its clubs. There are small events which make the small appear bigger than it is but at the same time these events don't diminish the importance of education.
Overall, I like the campus. Setting aside the usual thing of "it's a community college, it's not as good as a 4 year," it's a school where people are mainly pushing academics to have an easier time transferring to a 4 year. I personally was enrolled at UIC, but had to come to Olive Harvey due to cost reasons. It is a community college which means it's mostly work, but for what it's supposed to be, it works very well for me so far, especially for free.
I love the school. The staff are very helpful. I have enjoyed attending this college. I have learned a lot, it's been hard but my professors have been great. I started back to school because I never got the chance to finish. I am 55 years old now, and going back to school has been one of the most rewarding things, I have ever done for myself. Olive Harvey College made that happen for me.

If I could go back in time to my Senior year of High School knowing what I know now about college I would tell my past self, to go straight into college without taking an 18 year hiatus. I would also tell myself that college can be intimidating at first but once you set foot in the doors that first day it is just like you have been enrolled there all along, the people you will meet in college will be some of the greatest influences in your life and you will surely be an inspiration to some or several individuals. I would show myself the enrollment process in advance, because I would like to format it myself to ensure a smooth transition from Admissions all the way to the Bursar?s Office. But mainly if I could talk to my Senior self I would let me know to stay positive and motivated because I know I survived, and to keep me motivated I would let myself know that I, no we are a 4.0 student.
What made me choose Olive-Harvey above all other schools was the extremely professional, accessible staff.
A PERSON THAT ARE TRYING TO TRANSFER PRIVATE INSTITUTE CREDITS
The thing I brag about most when discussing my school would be the classes I enroll in and the discussions we partake in certain classes. To hear the opinions expressed by my fellow classmates really open your mind. As well as my 4.0 GPA.
Honestly, Olive-Harvey is a good school; it provides a high-quality education without the high price of a university.
So far, the classmates I have had, seem more like good friends. We exchange telephone numbers and e-mail addresses during the first two weeks of class. By doing this, if one of us had to miss class, he/she can keep up with the coursework by contacting another classmate. Sometimes we meet early or stay late, so we can go over the current lessons. And we help each other understand topics we could not quite grasp during class. My classmates are just as dedicated as I am; I appreciate them to the utmost, and they are my best "classfriends."
