Highline Community College Reviews
Students to professors ratio is around 7:1 I believe, the office hours are usually pretty helpful. And you will definitely be meeting all kinds of students here, it is probably more diverse than you could imagine. There are many academic success center in the Library to help students. And there are lots of LGBTQ safe zone on campus! In conclusion, I would say this college is a place that if you have good control of yourself and know the resources, you will have quite a success. For me there isn't much things I can complain about, apart from some drowsy professors in the math department. And just a general advice, if you are an international student or for any reason living in a host family, always talk to International students program and the home stay company if you have any concerns!
I rated 5 stars for my school. This is a very diverse campus in WA. I like the people I have met in here. They are very friendly and responsible for us. I like the professors and instructors who have taught us in class. They give us chances to speak in class, they have office hours for us to came in and ask questions. Some instructors only have limited office hours. If it is passed, it is just passed. I wish they could have more office hours in different times in the week. It would be more helpful for our academics! : )
Lots of diversity at Highline Community College. Great teachers for the most part but definitely use www.ratemyprofessors.com - for sure. I appreciate the library most of all - it is extensive and used for many purposes. I believe it is 5 floors! The Student Union is a great facility. I've had only positive experiences with the Bookstore, but make sure to check Amazon to see if you can rent your school books. It is worth it and they have plenty of options.
