Columbia Basin College Reviews
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.
Love Everything about it, but i would change the parking situation, NEEDS MORE PARKING. The professors are nice and always available, the campus has lots of diversity, there are a lot of class options and programs you can go into. They have a lot of clubs you can join, they have a student government and they always have outside activities for their students, like rollerskating, or a dance. They even have student jobs for students at the institution to apply for, you can be making money while going to school and they work around you schedule, its awesome.
