Georgia Highlands is an amazing college that offers a safe environment for the students. It is a public college in northwest Georgia. It has locations in Rome, Cartersville, Marietta, Dallas, and Douglasville, and serves the northwest parts of Georgia, as well as parts of east Alabama and southeast Tennessee. This College is great for finishing your core classes since the classes are way cheaper than most of the universities. The class room sizes are smaller which helps in everyone learning equally.

If you're looking for a college that cares about you and what you want to do in the future then Georgia Highlands College is the right school for you. I've been attending Georgia Highlands for about a year and a half and each professor or dean that I've came in contact with has helped me greatly. They will try their hardest to help you with whatever you need for college. Georgia Highlands always has opportunities for many different things, such as scholarships, how to do taxes, good study tips, and more.

One thing that I love about Georgia Highlands is the Student Center. The student center is a nice building where they serve delicious food and have events where students can interact with each other to get closer as peers. The student center has a gym inside of it so that you can work out or go watch people play basketball. The school store is located in the student center if you want some GHC merchandise.
Georgia Highlands College is a very good choice when looking for a college, especially if you are still not sure what you want to do. It is very cheap and affordable. There is a student center with a workout gym and a 2 court basketball gym and store, and a few other things. The student center is a very fun and friendly place to hang out at with your friends, or just by yourself if you want. I like that two campuses are very close to me, the Rome and Cartersville campus. The enrollment and application process with Georgia Highlands was a very easy and pleasant process. I like Georgia Highlands College very much.
