Bellevue College has been a life changing experience. Four years after graduating from high school my first day was extremely nerve wracking. Nail biting, sweating, and heavy breathing. I almost turned around to go back home. I stuck it out, found a easy parking spot and walked to my class without getting lost. I sat in the back left corner that way the teacher would not call on me for any reason. She was very pleasant, made me feel as if the only thing I feared was fear itself. I made it through the first day. On my second day, I met a great friend. We studied together and even signed up for the same classes the following quarter. Since that first day, everyday since has been a positive one. All my teachers have been engaging, wonderful, and go above and beyond for their students. I feel safe on campus and even if I feel scared about walking to my car at night they have security that will escort you. Overall BC is an exceptional college.

Bellevue College is amazing! I have been going here for 1 quarter so far and all of my professors I've had the pleasure of being taught by have been awesome! Leo Kiralla in specific who teaches Psychology is very good. By far my favorite professor at Bellevue College. Nick Russ is a wonderful Sociology teacher. All of the professors I have encountered so far have cared for the well being of their students and made sure they had everything necessary to succeed in their classes.

Can't wait for Spring 2017 quarter! As long as you check your professors out on RateMyProfessor you won't have any issues with getting bad ones! However, I didn't even do that and I got some of the greatest professors I have ever had. Period. Keep up the good work guys!

I commute with a motorcycle to school and work so I like how Bellevue college provides motorcycle parking so I never have trouble looking for a parking spot. I recently re-registered after being out of school for 5 years. All of the instructors that I've encountered were great. Close to the end of the quarter- instructors encourage students to complete an anonymous review about the class and the instructor. Tuition is still expensive- I'm paying around $1500 for three 5-credit classes. Although tuition is expensive, there are still other resources you can use like financial aid, student loans, or occupation reimbursement. Student Central has a convenient way to make appointments to see advisors, through computer or smartphone. I like how they incorporated that because I wouldn't have to wait that long to see an advisor if needed.
