I first enrolled at Highland Community College in 2015. My major was Cosmetology. It’s a certificate program. The school has very good employment rates after you graduate. This fall I will be enrolled in Criminal Justice, a two year degree program. I can’t wait, I’m excited! I really like Highland, I just wish it was a four year college where I can obtain a masters or bachelors degree.

I've really enjoyed my experience. As a non-traditional student I was engaged in the class discussions and engaged my intructors on a daily basis. I showed a strong desire to strive for excellence and I was rewarded with my professors helping me to be the student I aspired to be.

My particular professors were very well educated colleges like Barnard/Columbia, and others with distinguished honors for thier doctoral thesis. They have given me the insight and guidance for developing a schematic for my future.
Who knew you could satisfy pre-professional requirements at a community college? It is a much cheaper option and the quality of the instruction has been wonderful. Certainly adequate for the first few years of school. I plan to transfer to complete my bachelors, but gaining an associates degree is a great way to start. This is also a much cheaper option if one is somewhat unsure of their major and wants to do some exploration into various subjects. The science labs could use some updating, but again, these are lower level, 'beginner's' courses, so they are adequate for that. The Nursing program labs, on the other hand, are wonderful!
