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.

I love Olympic College! It is such a friendly atmosphere. The students are so independent, but quick to help you if you need it. Being so young and in Running Start, naturally I would feel underpowered and undervalued by staff and peers. However, I feel quite the opposite. My professors and peers view me just as good as they view any other student. It might sound strange, but I feel like I blend in with the diversity of the college. I don't feel like an outsider. There are so many different religions, ethnicities, values, backgrounds, and ages of people that make me feel like I belong. Everyday I drive 35 minutes to and about an hour ack from Olympic College (OC), but the diversity and course content make the driving worth it. While the course content is challenging, it is not impossible and I have so many resources to keep me going. I have only had two not-so-fun professors, but the students made up for them.
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.
