Since enrolling at Hiwassee College, I have come to find that the professors and other faculty members to be very helpful; whether it is with questions with homework assignments or anything going on in your personal life they are willing to offer advice and support for you in every way possible. If you learn better in smaller classroom settings, Hiwassee College is great. I have really enjoyed getting to attend this college and the learning environment is great!

I love Hiwassee! It is so small, and the professors really care about their students. Here I am a person, not a number. The only drawbacks are the cost of attendance and the buildings are really old and outdated.
My experience at Hiwassee College was awesome from the very first day. Coming from a different state I thought I would be alone and was a little nervous. The Hiwassee family made sure I felt secure and welcomed. Everywhere I turned there was smiling faces and people willing to help all around. The feeling of having someone when moving to a new place made it so much easier. I believe there is nothing Hiwassee College could change because they have an amazing family.
