I would like to see more text alerts regarding meditation. I would like to get positive affirmations regarding life, books, community and friendship. I request receiving less texts about campus alerts and negative news. To create a community of positive people co-existing together, we must eliminate the illusion of fear. Ethnicities work well together in environments that foster together.

I would like to see Harold Washington College have more color schemes throughout the campus. Take a look at Columbia College-Chicago's campus and you will see various colors, reds, blue, orange, yellow, green, brown, purple and so forth not just the dull white colors throughout the hallways.

We as students would study better and retain information if there were color energies.

I would also like to receive one full financial aid refund reimbursement instead of two installments
Review City Colleges of Chicago - Harold Washington College
As a community college Harold Washington is not that bad. I have to admit that some courses are not even as rigorous as my high school classes were. I am not saying this to boast or to insult the college, but rather to let you know that if you want to be challenged, you may have to challenge yourself. Go beyond what each professor expects. Read ahead and read extra. Again it is a community college, so if you come here know that the counselors and professors are not always the best, but there are exceptional professors, who are prepared and willing to help and stay after class for long hours.
Harold Washington College supports versatile student communities from all over the world. It motivates, inspires and guides students to higher carrer oriented projects and job oriented programs. HWC provides scholorships and financial assistance to the needed. The college is on an excellent geographical area of chicago loop and has the best academic and administrative community in USA. I am very happy and content the way instruction is provided here!
