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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline College is a very good community college, I don't regret my choice of going here. There are various class options, and advisors are always available to help guide you, to make sure you are on the track of your academic pathway. Professors are friendly and understanding. The campus is very diverse, it is the most diverse community college in the Seattle area. I have learned and grow a lot at Highline.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion on Highline College is that Highline provides great resources for any major you are looking to pursue. Being my first year in college, Highline staff, faculty, and students have helped me grow out of my shell and bring forward new ideas on how to manage my new "adult life". The professors are very encouraging and dedicated to helping students understand and excel in their academic goals. Among students, we are all very welcoming and open-minded to new ideas. So far my experience at highline would be a 10/10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, worst college I have ever been to. Way too many students for the amount of classes there are to choose from. Classes fill up very fast and not enough teachers to teach them. For the past 2 quarters and also next quarter, over half the classes I need for my 2 year degree are not being taught. This means I have to wait a few more quarters, if not longer, and it will take me a lot longer to complete my degree. Paid parking is just ridiculous. The school is really old. One thing I like is my CIS teachers. This college has strict requirements to be eligible for financial air. I lost my job and they still wouldn't award me with some aid as I was struggling to find a job that works for me. I am considering dropping out, or possibly switching colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline is a very diverse school with many people who want to see the students do well. The professors encourage the students to always do their best, learn the material, and ask questions in class. What stands out to me the most, is the professors will thank the students for asking questions. its very encouraging for someone like me who is very shy. The school also spares no expense for the students, with a high tech Thunder Lab and free tutoring for as many hours as the students need it.
