I've taken 2 online courses. One was super easy, but a waste of time. The other was super difficult and took up all of my time! You do have to learn to interact with others, virtually, online. You are usually put into groups and given tasks to do over the internet--projects, assignments, etc. There's is not a very good professor/student relationship because you'll never see the professor. My 2nd online professor went out of the country! You'll also, most likely, never meet your online peers. That's kind of the point of online classes. However, almost any course you take at Cascadia will involve some type of online structure--there's a website that every student and professor uses to turn in assignments, interact, and see grades. But I did not enjoy online classes, personally; except for the part about not having to show up to a real, in-person class.

I really love Cascadia so far. I'm currently a freshman at the school and I've loved all the cool classes offered, how helpful they are, and all the events on campus. It's been really fun going to school here and I hope to continue to be able to. You should be prepared for taking three classes if you plan to be a full time student and get your associate's in two years. There are two coffee shops on campus and a number of food trucks come through, my personal favorite being beanfish. There are three main buildings to the college. Parking can be really difficult, taking up to half an hour on some days. Fridays are the easiest days to park on. Overall, I love the campus and all the people there.
I am a running start student second year. Cascadia has been awesome. A mix of teachers, some great others are a mixed bag. Either way there is a small class size, you have close interaction with teachers which is very beneficial. Very nice campus, everything is kept up and a lot of new buildings. The new ARC is very nice. Numerous study areas all around campus. Only thing that sucks is parking. If you are taking a class starting anywhere from 12:30pm-2:00pm, be prepared to come maybe 5-25 minutes late to class. Also parking passes per quarter are $90-$160. I think they are building a new lot, heard some things about that. You get other shared resources from UW Bothell which shares the same campus. You get access to the best library in the country. New workout center. School is great. Just slightly higher tuition then Edmonds CC or something, which isn't as nice. Other community colleges feel dirty and a bit sketchy.

Another con is a lot of prerequisite classes, every running start student I know (thru placement test) got placement to Math 085, so you need to take 4 math classes before Calc1.

I planned to transfer to UW Bothell for CSSE, things look pretty good if you make sure you take all the right classes and get great grades. Don't rely 100% on advisors, their time is limited. Talk to whatever transfer school you want to go to so you don't waste time and money.
