Bellingham Technical College Reviews
Spring 2016 was my first quarter at Bellingham Technical College. My classes were all prerequisites and the workload was enough to keep me engaged, but not overwhelming. My plan is to obtain certificates then progress to an associates degree in Administrative Assistant. Bellingham Technical College's facilities are perfect for students who don't have many resources. I found their library especially useful when I was waiting for the resources to cover internet access, a new laptop, and textbooks.
Best experience I have had with professors and staff. They are all super friendly and so willing to help you. I really love the class sizes, too. The classes I've had so far have ranged from 12-28 students. This is the perfect size to really get to know the material and your classmates. Also, I think it is amazing that the school tries to cut the costs of textbooks as much as they can. They made my education much more affordable by doing so.
I had only one online class and it took some time to get used to it. It seemed very different from a regular class because of the interaction between people as well as the time and location. There was some peer-to-peer interaction, but only sometimes. The class also felt strange because I could do it at home late at night or whenever I found free time at school. As a result, my 'sessions' would take place at various times for varying lengths of time; making things flexible but hard at first to figure out how distribute my work throughout the week.
