    This school sucks especially the Paulding campus no cafe, no gym, no nothing. I am very disappointed in the class options. Its impossible to get the classes you need when you want. The front office staff is terrible! They are vicious and unhelpful! I am more than ready to get out of Highlands! SPSU is a dump. Roaches all over the class rooms and the AC/Heat sometimes doesn't work. The teachers at this location don't seem to care either. When Cartersville teachers come here to teach they are always shocked at how horrible our classrooms are. ...Continue reading

    Great school to start off with but I wouldn't want to stay here forever i just wished their class offering weren't so limited. it makes it super hard to work with our schedules when they only offer a class 2 or 3 different times a semester It's not awful but it's definitely not where I want to be. Poor high school choices that I have to take responsibility for. ...Continue reading

    The school is very cheap, so you get what you pay for. The WIFI at the school is pathetic never works, and I've have class cancelled because of it. The policies that the school has doesn't make any sense, and the administration doesn't want to work with you. It' a great school to start out at, transfer as fast as you can to go to a better college. ...Continue reading

    A lot of campuses around Georgia, good for a community college, all credits are transferable The Marietta campus has very limited class choices. I'm a music major, and the only music classes that are worth taking are on the Rome campus, like an hours drive from where I live. The music course available on the Marietta campus is very bogus, and I would not recommend taking it. Oh, I got to go to a bigger college for the rest of it. Class span over 4 counties in Ga. When you are not able to get your classes all on one campus you now it is time to go. ...Continue reading

    Great if you want to transfer to a bigger university. It is a relatively small community college, allowing the opportunity to engage more with professors & fellow students. It is very well kept & I LOVE every professor that I have had thus far (I've taken 26 credit hrs). The quality of the education obtained is amazing & very reasonably priced. I highly recommend GHC. ...Continue reading

    Would be nice to have some real food like pizza and stuff for free. The people in the offices are awful. They don't have answers for you & are extremely rude. I won't even visit my advisor out of fear of being yelled at. Financial aid has been a disaster every semester. Professors: mostly good & some bad.

    Georgia Highlands has become a second home to me. I love my school and I love the professors. I came here strictly for the dental hygiene program, but even if I decided not to do hygiene, I would not leave here! Everyone is awesome!!!! GHC has propelled me further into life than I ever could have imagined. GHC has allowed me to see the world through study abroad and has helped guide me through some hard decision making. In the end, I wouldn't have had it any other way. Excellent college! ...Continue reading
