I have enjoyed this school! Teachers are helpful, nice atmosphere. Its been almost 10 years since I've been to school since high school and this has eased my mind completely. Im working and going to school full time but school has been less stressful than I planned. Teachers push you to your fullest which has been a great feeling and left me ending the quarter with a 3.89 GPA. Im happy that I get to continue my education with this school.

Columbia Basin College has a very clean and pretty campus, great facilities, a very kind and friendly student body, and group of professors that are dedicated to the students learning. The facilities here at Columbia Basin College are magnificent, they have a gym the has a plethora of cardio machines and weight lifting equipment, and their student building (AKA Hawk Central) is a warm and friendly environment that not only gives students an area to study but to also meet and make new friends. The professors here at Columbia Basin College are unique in the fact that they are so dedicated and invested in the students learning. Each one of my professors has made it very easy to communicate with and understand the material. In fact the only down sides about Columbia Basin College is the parking, which is not big enough for the entire student body. Other than that Columbia Basin College is an extraordinary college that has left a positive impact on my college experience.
I love that Columbia Basin College offers flexible day or evening classes. I also, like that classmates are helpful toward on another. This college has an excellent student tutoring center. The center offers in person and also online tutoring for a variety of subject areas. I have had a very positive experience at this college and would recommend anyone to attend.
The only drawback that I can think of is that their is not enough professors hired on to teach some of the core classes needed for entry into the Nursing or Dental Hygiene programs. These classes fill up very fast and often times students are unable to take the course due to the limited seats available. But, despite the drawback that I have mentioned, I would still recommend this school.
