Promise program is a hoax

You can't get in to the Promise Program is you are undocumented. It doesn't matter if you are DACA with a 4.0. That is BS.

I used to go to Harper. I live and work in district now and have a 14 year old who will be in college in a few years from now.

I agree with what you wrote. I follow stuff at Harper because my kid might go there one day plus my neighbor works PT there. So I know there is a lot of lip service about diversity at Harper. It is BS.

The Old President Ender is your typical bloated burp rat. He used to talk a good game but was another politician type.

He was not credible. There is a new president lets hope she is better could not be worse.

Duping people

My mom and dad wanted me to go to harper on promise. Thank gd I got into another college and will go there instead. Promise is a good idea but the guy at harper who runs it is clueless. Harper not impressed at all.

Harper College fell apart

This has become a joke of a college. Disability service, athletics, the registrar and many at Harper is a total mess. No one cares but maybe the teachers. I want my $$$$ back!

It's become a really *** workplace, too. HR looks the other way and is not interested in employees.

Administration is out of touch.

No one here is happy. I left a few months ago and work at another college where it is much better.

I think the Registrar and One Stop area are bad too. They are not organized.

They should give the athletes their moneys back. This place sux.

Also had a very bad experience here with Financial Aid and the Bookstore. This is not a good school to go to if you are a Veteran. They don’t get how to work with us.

Harper has fallen apart. The Board of Trustees are so out of touch with reality (and, with students), that they gave Ken Ender $45,000 as a bonus before his retirement.

Ender was incompetent leadership at its best. It is shocking that these things are happening in Higher Education.

I am appalled. I believe the quality of education is good, but will not send my children to Harper.
