I think Georgia Highlands is a great college especially for those who are looking for a good education while still being affordable. I only take online classes to fit my personal schedule however they always have events going on and I have been to the campus which is really nice. The professors that I have had so far respond fairly quick whenever I have a question and have reasonable office hours if I ever do need to get into contact with them.
It is a great college and very affordable. They have the same options as any four year school without the high prices and large classrooms. The professors are always available when they are needed. You do not feel like a number when you are there, but instead you feel like your are amongst family.
I really love the school because there is always someone to help and guide you whenever you need it. No matter what the staff at GA Highlands immediately makes you feel like family. The students are super nice as well and it's really easy to meet someone you connect with!
Fantastic school. Friendly staff.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Georgia Highlands College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Don't get caught up in outside activities of college life, but be more concerned about your studies. Grades are important and the more knowledge you can take away from college the better prepared you will be when you get out into the working world. If you just apply yourself and use the tools available to you for success, you will succeed. Be determined! Always!
It still gives you that high school small class feel ,even though your in college.
Georgia Highlands College is a great 2 year school for non-traditional students and traditional students alike.
-Smaller Class sizes
-Nice Computer lab
The students vary by campus. at the Marietta campus (which is a satellite campus on Southern Poly/ Kennesaw State campus) everyone goes to class then goes home. People do not usually mingle after class because they have jobs, and other responsibilities to attend to.Although we can live on dorm with SPSU students, students generally all live off campus. At other campuses , like Floyd and Cartersville, the students have more options as they are actually at a whole university. There are clubs,game rooms, basically everything at these campuses.

The worst thing about my school is the distance I travel from home to get there. I drive 1 hour to school and 1 hour home, 3 days each week.
Anyone interested in furthering their education should attend this college. If you like being in a smaller environment, then this is the campus for you.
You shouldn't attend this school if you are interested in a bachelors degree. Highlands is a small community college that offers 3 associate programs: Dental Hygiene, Human Services and Nursing. So, you have to transfer out in order to have a BS.

That we are here because we didn't do well in high school or no other school would accept us, when in general its more about money than anything else. I got accepted into SCAD(Savannah College of Art and Design) however, its was very expensive, especially since I am paying for my college expenses alone, so here I am at GHC. Also, a lot of students are older adults going back to school or working mothers trying to get degrees.
I wish that I was taught how to study for college while in High School.
The most thing I brag about when I tell my friends abour my school is the awesome professor we have and the facilities are great for a two year school.
The most fustrating thing about Georgia Highlands is the lack of student life organizations. Given the demographic of the school, this probably has reasonable explanations behind it; however with more and more youth attending college than ever before, clubs and organizations should no longer be limited. The college experience is about defining yourself and making life-long lasting friends. The more involvement a student can have allows for more chances to meet people and learn about themselves.
