What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harper offers a good education with only a few disappointing professors. Efforts are made to make the social environment feel less commuter, and it works. Food options and other amenities are appreciated and perfectly sufficient for the amount of time most students spend on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harper has so many resources and is so very supportive of the students. The campus is in a beautiful setting with natural waters and woods. There are so many peaceful locations inside and outside to study and complete homework. You are really set up to win at Harper. Even though it is a two year college, there are partnerships through the University Center with DePaul in Chicago, Northern Illinois University and others to complete a bachelor degree. You can even earn a Master of Nursing degree on the Harper campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my experience at Harper College. The class sizes were great and the professors were awesome. They try not to act like they are better than you, but act more like a colleague helping you succeed. One of the only things I am critical of is their counseling; in my experience and a majority of other students I've spoke with, I've found that they really want you to stay as long as possible. I had AP credit and they still wanted me to retake those classes to "review the material". Other than that Harper College is a great institute to obtain your associates degree, and they also have awesome opportunities to receive a Bachelors degree through four-year schools on Harper's campus for discounted rates. THAT is awesome.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harper College is one of the best community colleges out there. The teachers are all so nice and available at all times. The new library is also a great addition to the campus. The only thing that I would complain about is that there isn't a lot of places to eat on campus. We only have subway and starbucks, wish we had more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it overall, there is a quad which kind of makes it feel like a real four year university campus, they keep care of the trees and grass and flowers outside so in spring it looks nice. There are two Starbucks on campus which is a huge plus for me. Majority of the professors are very helpful and encouraging with high grades and office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One of the best community colleges. Classes that are offered here are up to par with classes offered in higer tier colleges. Could work on events and activities outside of school that the students could be involved in. There are clubs, but most of the time, the people organizing them don't even know themselves when they are meeting and how to even join, which is disappointing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

William Rainey Harper College is a fantastic community college to get an associates degree or certificate. With Faculty that goes above and beyond for students, modern facilities, and a low price tag, Harper is a great choice for summer courses or return degree programs as well. With hundreds of programs and degrees, Harper allows you to get what you need to get done at your own pace. Students very relax, no one will bug you if you want to do your own thing but you will find most all the students to be very pleasant. Finishing my second year at Harper College and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for alternatives to four tear universities or simply to return to college for a class or two.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at Harper College. Harper is seen as a two-year college, a stepping stone to transfer in the future, or a place to study when you want to reassess your major. I like the campus and you're able to tell that the professors care. ALWAYS check rate my professor before you take a class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Harper is a great school. They offer a wide array of programs. As someone who enrolled in classes at Harper immediately following high school graduation and is again choosing to take classes there 10 years later as I further my career, I am a big advocate for students using their facility to start and advance themselves academically.
