I began going to Lake Washington Institute of Technology as a Running Start student during my senior year of high school, and I am currently finishing up my final class requirement to obtain their Business DTA. Overall, I have been highly satisfied with the experience that I have received at LWTech. The smaller class size allows for greater interaction between students and instructors, which I believe has helped me and my classmates to get a better understanding of the subjects we are learning. Most of the teachers here have worked in the industries they are teaching about, and many of them have also taught at other colleges and universities. Their experience has allowed them to enhance our learning experience and to provide us with career advice. LWTech has many helpful resources, including tutoring and financial assistance opportunities. I think that LWTech does an excellent job of making sure that every student has the resources and support that they need to succeed academically
Review Lake Washington Institute of Technology
I've learned so much and was able to try new things, be inspired by those around me. And find friendly people everywhere you look! It's a great school to get started on your path of fallowing your dreams. It was for me! I started going to this school enrolled in the culinary arts program. Little did I know that I'd graduate 3 years later with not only a culinary arts degree but also was inspired to get my baking degree as well! Now I currently use my skills and knowledge as a chef at Microsoft!
Before attending, I know people that have left lake Washington tech with full blown careers, so i was excited to see myself. I'm pleased to see my drawing teacher actually studied with current artist and has the ability to show other artists what shows up in his class. The teachers have many opportunities and are capable of giving careers to students that advanced, simply by knowing professionals that are looking for workers. I'm excited to work hard and possibly get acknowledged, because careers are very possible from lake Washington tech.
