What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cheap place to start college. Class sizes are relatively small, around 60 students in the largest class I attended. This means that it is likely for you to get attention from the professor as long as you tried. Pizza from the second floor cafe in building 8 test really good, but other food are simply okay.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a standard and genuinely above average community college. It was recently promoted to a college rather than a community college, but nothing changed. It's basic and accessible and allows students to transfer to higher education centers pretty readily. Classes are reasonably varied and not too much of a commitment, and professors are generally affording and well-mannered.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline College is a good community college that cares about their students access to a quality and affordable education. I have known a few people who have had lots of complaints about difficulties with online registration; however, personally, I have not had to deal with this. Teachers can be very hit or miss so make sure to look at rate my professor when signing up for classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was an enjoyable school to go to and I would recommend Highline for locals. Some of the classes were interesting and entertaining while others lacked the passion that makes learning fun. School events were plentiful and while I didn't make it to a lot of them I did enjoy the ones that I did make it to. Overall Highline was a good introduction to college life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline is a very flexible college. They offer many opportunities to do coursework online, but the involvement of professors in classes is highly variable. Expectations are usually laid out, but some professors just aren't responsive. As well, there are some issues with not knowing who your classmates will be which also can change how much discussion can happen in class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline College is a one of a kind college as it’s one of the most diverse colleges out there. The classrooms and Laboratories are in very good conditions. The chairs and tables look brand new and are comfortable. Students and teachers are very nice and accept anyone with problems or new ideas. There are many different cultures and Highline has many distinct clubs and activates every week that allows people to have fun. The teachers are nice and want their students to learn. Safety on campus is secured as local police would come occasionally and walk around as well as the school security guards which make you in a safe learning environment. There are smoking areas if you need to take a break, however, it doesn’t affect school work or others as people can avoid the areas. You can’t live at Highline as there are no dorms or apartments nearby, but they are building houses nearby for students in the future. All professors have office hours and are easy to talk to about school work or any other troubles. The school is close to food places and hangouts which is nice if you need to buy school supplies or if you’re hungry you can get food. Parking is a hassle as you should get there early if you want good parking and some people don’t know how to park correctly. Overall, I love this school and recommend this to anyone who wants to transfer or get a degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an okay school for the kids that don't really know what they want to do with their life or want to do Running Start simply to escape the mess of public high schools, but not much more than that. Most classes aren't too difficult, with the exception of upper-level math and science classes. Faculty has some gems, although quite a few teachers, including many math faculty, are notoriously bad. Also not easy to make friends or have much of a social life unless you're either really outgoing or come into the school with a clique.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My mind is flabbergasted community colleges get such a bad wrap. Teachers push kids to only consider university, but I'm really glad I'm starting my college experience here at Highline. It's a flexible environment where you control how much you want to invest. By that I mean, teachers are available to you, but it depends on you if you are looking for that extra help. I have taken the opportunity to really discuss assignments and future plans with professors and they have in turn given me many opportunities to try different programs and improve my academic abilities. It's definitely quieter than a university would be, but it's not uncomfortable. You know that everyone is transitioning here and you are a part of that process.
