Review Harper College
Harper College only reaches its full potential to those who seek just more than a community college, which is extremely difficult as it consists mainly of students who commute and work a lot of hours. But to those who can manage, taking advantage of PTK, Honors Program, and other organizations only helps you more in the long run. Having done the Honors Program, all of my Honors classes were conducted in a reading-homework forum-classtime style, and it was informative, fun, and it all counted toward my 60 credit hours. If I could, I would redo Harper by taking more Honors courses!
The degree that you can earn from Harper ranges depending on what career you're going into.There are so many classes you can take that you could even earn a Bachelor's Degree if you wish. Even if you don't plan on staying for a Bachelor's Degree, the college makes sure to help you prepare for your transfer to a university. The counselors they provide are amazing! My counselor made sure to help map out my entire education at Harper so that I would be able to graduate with an Associates Degree. They even offer jobs in your degree field on campus. From community service officers to dental assistants.
I feel that in each course I have taken so far at Harper, I have learned a lot of new information. I love that my favorite class I've taken so far, (Human Physiology) was also my most difficult class I've taken so far, yet I worked so hard and received the A I was striving for. I like the competition to get in to the Limited Enrollment Programs because when you work hard, apply, and play the waiting game, it is the best most rewarding feeling when you get that Acceptance Letter in the mail! The campus is beautiful. There are plenty of clubs to choose from. I have joined both Pre-Med club as well as Phi Theta Kappa. I love the feeling of working hard all semester and then getting rewarded with the grades I wanted.
