Georgia Highlands College provides me an opportunity to connect with your teachers when you need help on a specific assignment. Georgia Highlands College also provides me an opportunity to meet new students and make new friends. Georgia Highlands College, in addition, provides me an opportunity to become independent and learn the material by myself so that I could learn at my own pace.

What I personally like about this school is the way that classes are small. When classes are small, teachers know you more and they feel connected to you. Another thing that I love about this school is the library. The school's library is a great place to study by yourself or a group of classmates.

Georgia Highlands College offers a wide variety of degrees and experiences to help students in life. Whether a student plans on transferring or earning an associate's (and now bachelor) degree, this college serves as a great stepping stone to new adventures. There are numerous student organizations and a few honor societies that can better prepare and guide students into being well-round people. It is incredibly affordable and is available to nearly anyone since there are five campus locations as well as distance learning. There is a relatively small student population which helps in providing students with personal connections to professors and each other.
Georgia Highlands is a great college, I feel the teachers are very much hands on. During high school I felt I would be a dropout; but the professors I have had so far really showed me that college isn't as hard as everyone makes it seem. I have encountered a bad teacher but I just overlooked it and was given extra help. Before joining the college I felt I was beyond ready to go off to a huge university until coming to GHC. I noticed when thinking about having hundreds of student with 1 teacher. I think I have made a great decision coming and also saved lots of money.
