North Seattle college often tailors their curriculum to the University of Washington's depending on the class, so it is fast-paced and challenging but manageable. I am a Computer Science student here and love how much attention I can get from the small class sizes, and can say that all of my professors have been really helpful and knowledgeable. A good amount of homework is given for every class, and the teachers expect you to do it and spend a fair amount of time doing so. But if you do, you will learn a lot and be ready to transfer to a 4-year program. Also, North Seattle encourages students to get internships while there, and have programs to give you school credits for doing so.
Review Your College
I really enjoyed attending North Seattle College, it was close to my house but in a very convenient location. The campus was set up as more of an outside campus, if the spring and summer, it was nice to step right out of the classroom into the outside sun and air. The teachers and students I met during my 2 years there were very friendly and attentive. I never had an issue getting my questions answered from any source.
Since North Seattle has limited Bachelor's degrees offered, it is hard to say what the job prospects are like for students pursuing a 4-year degree. What they do have are a fair amount of Associate's degrees offered, all of which are rated highly. Also, Job Fairs take place frequently on campus, and internships informational meetings and workshops pop up every so often as well. North Seattle wants to help students succeed in any way that they can, even if that means getting you ready to transfer to another school.
