I had a great experience at Harper College. Whenever I needed help, it was available there was always someone there to assist you. If they did not know the answer they would find smeone that did. I decicded to go back to school. I saw that they had an Associates Degree program in Human services. I started classes and they were great, some were large and some wee small. I really enjoy working with people so this was perfect for me. I had the greatest professor when I started. She has been an inspiration to me and has also been there when I really needed help. We as a group decided to start a club for Human Services. We have had great progress and have well over 50 members since November. I believe that any student that are entering school should get to know what is available to them, get aquainted with the clubs and with the school in general. It is a great experience if you get involved. I must add that I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa and look forward to getting my B.A in social work.
