I have a hard time with being a non traditional student who decided to go back to school, that part of my tuition is $85.00 going towards a gym that I'm never in, plus paying for parking every semester and the worse part of that is I do online classes. The instructors might be willing to help you if they have time, you might get an email back but by then it maybe too late. The online MATH yeah you've gotta have a camera on you at all times, a virtual tour of the room your in to make sure your not cheating, seriously???? Or put you in a class that is set with your personal schedule then the day of, they've decided to change the time without telling you. No communication in certain areas, especially Financial Aide!
Not the school I thought it was. Very disappointed....
Review Georgia Highlands College
I went to the campus in Cartersville which is a really nice campus. The classes aren't too big so you're able to have more interaction with the professor. All of my professors that I've had have been wonderful! If I ever needed extra help, or if I had a misunderstanding, I would either talk to them after class or shoot them a quick email. They were always there for me to clarify information or answer any questions I had. One thing that I don't like is that Cartersville is not an area where there's lots of things to do. I mainly had to stay on campus when I had my break in between classes because it's not a very fun town to be in. But, honestly this campus is great and I love sitting outside to study on nice days. GA highlands is a very easy going school for someone who is looking to further their education and start slowly by easing in to college life at a smaller school.
In my two years attending I've been very pleased with my classes, professors, administrators, campus(es), etc., etc. Everyone I've had dealings with has always been very helpful and pleasant. Both the Rome and Cartersville Campus were always kept clean and in good order with well-designed interiors for student life. As a community college it is very affordable and I feel very fortunate to have attended for two years at such a low cost. I feel as though I've gotten a great deal of bang for my buck along side my education.
