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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is my first year here, I love it so far! There’s been so much help provided from the school. From my professors to my counselor. They really help me stay on the right track for I can complete this chapter of my life and move on to the next. Great school, I’ve definitely told some of my younger friends to not underlook Harper. It’s a great start for your general education and core classes. This place is here for us, it’s here to help us shape our life’s into the careers we look forward to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, Harper isn't quite that bad of a school as everyone I know makes it up to be. Maybe it's because of the reputation of it being a community college, and how most people aren't open to the idea of going there. I, for one, think that it's a great place. There aren't any minuses, save for there being no dorms, but what's the harm in that? Everything else, the atmosphere to the experience that it gives is equal to what a university can give. Friendly people, lots of interesting professors. And sure it'll be difficult. No college education is a cake walk. And if it is difficult, that means it's worth focusing and succeeding. Why? It's because it's preparing you for a future that you will struggle with, no doubt. Think of it this way. College is like a barrier standing between you and the real world. It emulates a few characteristics of it, like responsibilities and such. Inside you're taught how to succeed in a certain, aspired course. Then once you're out there, that barrier will recede, and you'll see the real world as it really is. But having been to college reminds you that you know what you're doing, that you know you're in charge of what becomes of you in life. But you are reassured that you'll do well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harper College is a good school. They offer many classes and those credits are easily transferred to 4 year universities. Professors have posted office hours and the campus is beautiful. I have never been to the cafeteria, but the Subway and Starbucks on campus are both great.

Harper College is a very good community college, compared to the other ones in the area. The education is fine. I love that it's a pretty big campus to me so it makes it feel like I am at an actual college. Most of the teachers I have had have been great.
