Georgia Highlands is a wonderful community college. I enjoy the small classroom sizes and getting to know my professors on a more personal basis. We just recently had a fashion show in which I had to dress, along with other fellow students, to be examples of what to wear to an interview. This is just one example of how active our student body is and career pursuing they are.
