This is a great community college. Classes are small allowing for more 1 on 1 interactions with the professors. There is free student tutoring and jobs on campus. Harper really does preapre you to be a adult. Even if you aren't decided on your major, you are sure to find your passion at harper since classes range from music to on hands nursing programs. The facilities are constantly upgrading allowing it to be high tech and more modern.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like how the professors genuinely care and prepare their students well for transferring to a 4 year university. I also love the beautiful campus (the nature paths, the library, and the center for new students) and the general type of people who go there (poor social life because hard workers). I dislike the lack of things to do outside of class though. When you're not studying, there's really not much to do other than go to the Starbucks or to Woodfield Mall.

Harper is an amazing college. The academics are outstanding. The professors really care about their students and with the small class sizes, the professors can really work with the students to make sure they understand the material. The organizations on campus are also amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going into Harper, I had a really negative mindset. You'll hear that it isn't a "real college" and that there's "nothing to do." I've found this to be not only untrue, but the exact opposite- there is so much to do. However, whether or not you choose to partake in these activities and extracurriculars is on you. Whether you go to U of I or Harper, at the end of that day it's your choice as to how you want your experience to be. Yes, it's a commuter college so you may need to try harder to get involved with sports or clubs, but if all you do is go home directly after class then of course you're going to think it has "nothing to do." Harper, like any college, is what you make it. And I am so glad I decided to go here first.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Harper Community College is a great community college. However, it is a Community College. Students keep separate lives, don't play sports associated with the school, but it is a great place to pass through on the way to your next step in life. If you have a plan Harper is great, if you don't you'll most likely find yourself lost taking general education classes.
