When you compare Olive Harvey to other community colleges in Chicago it is very easy to overlook this one and choose another like Harold Washington, which is in the loop in downtown Chicago. I went to Harold Washington my first semester and the comparison between Olive and Harold is like night and day. The facilities are so much more clean and most of the classrooms are so much better here at Olive compared to Harold and. Olive boasts sports and even its very own gym. The hallways are not always crowded and the cafeteria food here is okay but at the very least it gives you an option to get a quick bite on the cheap when at Harold they offered no food choices. In my opinion if your looking for a school with a great environment, and sports Olive Harvey is the school for you.
Olive Harvey College has made a lot of improvements. The teachers and tutors are more than willing to help understand your coursework. All staff is friendly and the enrollment process is easy and convenient because its all in one place. This is my first time as a student at olive harvey college and my experience thus far has been beyond my expectations. This is an awesome place to further your education.
