It's a small town college that's very affordable and offers dorms. The staff are very helpful. Just like any university, they offer dorms and meal plans, have many activities to participate in and classes are challenging. There are restaurants on campus and public transit nearby too. They offer a great deal of help when it comes to studying and scholarship applications! Big Bend is really a great community college, and I was especially pleased that they offer a ADN in nursing, medical assisting, and pre-med, among a ton of other fields to choose from.

I'm looking at attending this school and during my tour I was able to see what it was like on campus. The school is very well maintained, has amazing academic programs and endless opportunities available to students to ensure that they succeed. Something else that I appreciate about this school is the size. Because I moved from a big city it's refreshing to be in an environment where its smaller so students have a chance to feel less overwhelmed as opposed to the feeling of big city schools, and lets them have a better experience with their teachers as well.
I am finishing up my second year at Big Bend. I love it! It is definitely a small town college. Moses Lake is not very big and there are not a ton of things to do unless you go out of town or get creative. The classes and professors are excellent. I always feel very safe. Everyone is very kind and eager to learn. Overall positive environment, I highly recommend Big Bend!
