The school had small classes and there were plenty of opportunities to join clubs and other activities. The classes are really flexible and I never had an issue getting an appointment with a professor or simply walking in during their open office hours.
I love Highline, I am extremely thankful to get the chance to attend at this point in time, and will always feel appreciative of my time here. Also, being a student worker on campus is great, and has allowed me to grow and prepare myself for my career and transfer. All the professors are great, and we are always open to discussion with them. There is a lot of course options for everyone, and have a good spread of availability and financial aid.
As a first generation college student, leaving the comfort and certainty of high school life was terrifying, especially when considering how I would pay for it all. At first I was a bit skeptical of going to Highline College, thinking it would be "too easy" or inferior to the expensive universities I couldn't afford to attend. I was pleasantly surprise what a good intermediate Highline College has been for me though as a student looking to transfer to a University. The classes are actually intellectually challenging, the staff is amazing, and the campus is beautiful. Small class sizes mean it is really easy to get in touch with a professor to ask about a certain concept that is confusing or hard to grasp. All the professors I have had are super friendly and most are more than happy to work with you on homework or assignments during their clearly listed office hours.
They also have a great library with tons of resources such as student mentors to help with almost any subject taught at the school. They even have student mentors that speak a wide variety of different languages if English is your second language, or if you just feel more comfortable talking in a different language with the mentors. When I'm not in class, I'm usually in the library studying by myself or with friends in the study rooms available for groups of students.
Whether you're doing running start, want to attend for the full four years, or are looking to transfer (like I am planning on doing at the end of this year) to a four year university, I would highly recommend looking into Highline College, as it is a great introduction to college life with tons of student resources available to help make getting an education easier.
Highline overall is a great campus; the staff is very willing to help you succeed. Highline offers tons of events that help educate and simply help students out with their future careers. As a highline student i have been able to run my own club that meets every week, attend many different types of conferences including The National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) held in Louisiana, events, lectures, and weekly presentations. Highline believes in students that otherwise other schools do not. Highline will always have a special place on my heart and it will always be known as my stepping stone that helped me get one step closer to my career.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Highline 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 _____.
The advice that I would give myself is that it's okay to be unsure about what you want to do, but you still need to have a plan. Meet with a High School counselor or an advisor from a college you're thinking about, but make a plan with someone. It's important to get an idea of what stepping stones you'll need to take to get to a general goal, even if you don't know the specifics. The details will come later, when you become more and more sure about (or should I say you discover) what you want to do. It's okay to not have every answer right now as long as you're moving in a positive direction. It's important to meet with a counselor because they know the details about what classes you need to take, what grades you need to get and what the prerequisites to certain classes are. You don't need to stress yourself out about learning a new confusing system when you have someone who has mastered it and can tell you exactly what you should and shouldn't do.
I think the people who have choosen Education as their major should attend Central Washington University.
They've all come from different backgrounds with unique stories, interests, values and experiences, but they all have the same goal that I do.
I can't think of a single thing I wish I would have known before coming to Highline. I truly believe that once a person makes the decision to go to college, they should embrace it and start their learning process immediately. It is the experiences that occur while in college that really mold someone as a student and future graduate. No amount of research or understanding is going to prepare a person for the college experience. My advice is to jump in with both feet and start swimming!
The school is great, open, accomodating and welcoming with many ways to get involved and tons of resources to look for.
I love the professors here. They actually do care about their students. I have found, in every quarter, a professor more different from the last, but they always have one thing in common, and that is the well-being of their students. They make sure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve and gain excellence. They strive to encourage you from class work to understanding life outside of class. The professors are the soul of Highline Community College and HCC would be nothing without them!
The location is centrally located, the instructors are very personable and friendly and they have a genuine concern for their students getting a good education. The process to enroll was so easy and everyone was so helpful in getting everything taken care of.
They still require some admissions and financial aid forms to be delivered in person. It would be much easier if everything was done online.
My school is best known for having a high percentage of students completing their program, prerequisite, certificate, or of that similarity, here.
People who have severe social anxiety, as class participation and intereaction is highly encouraged here.
I love it there, the cafe is very cozy, really good programs, most diverse college ever!
The most frustrating is that when you go to a big college you seem to get discouraged when you finds out everything is not what you thought it would be. The thought of you meeting new people and starting over is frustrating. In all, you'll find yourself adjusting and becoming accustom to things that you would have never thought you would before.
