The atmosphere for this community college is fairly antisocial, students come in to take classes and thats it. But it does have quite a bit of diversity, which includes a number of international students and a wide range of ages compared to other colleges, likely because of the high percentage of military/shipyard workers that attend it. Despite it being a community college there are a lot of very passionate and talented teachers. That makes up for all the other shortcomings, I've had better educators here than anywhere else. Another plus: the campus is beautiful! and is close to evergreen park and downtown bremerton where you can ferry over to Seattle.

My experience at Olympic College was phenomenal. I attended classes on campus, as well as, online. Either way, instructors were helpful and understanding. I've never dealt with miscommunication. The instructors at Olympic College are well prepared for every lesson. Students have access to many resources to improve any homework or projects.

Time for classes is flexible. Students can go to school and work full-time. There are classes in the morning, afternoon, and evening.
My experience, I work at a middle school, I would attend evening classes. I'm grateful Olympic College.

There are many options to get involved in the community at Olympic College. There are clubs to join; it's a great way to meet students from all over the country. There are also students from different countries. Students transferring from a different country, also have opportunities to learn and meet new people.
Olympic college has a wide range of programs that translate into local area jobs. It's a practical college, where you aren't paying for prestige along with your degree.
Location is convenient, campus and buildings are well maintained. The faculty here is very diverse. The educators strive to make sure you are successful, instead of the lack of concern at some other schools.
The campus resources are limitless. You can find any help you need there if you are struggling with a course.
Overall, Olympic college will give you a quality education without the high price tag of other colleges and universities.
