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.

Great school! I attended multiple classes while in my senior year of high school and all of my professors were wonderful! The school provides free study groups and multiple free resources for families with financial needs.
Another perk is definitely the puppies! every time mid-terms or finals come around, the college brings puppies in for puppy therapy and you can cuddle them to calm down! it's the best!
Olympic College is a great community college fostering higher level education. Olympic College is ever growing to be better than it was before, from staff to student organizations to events and classes offered. I have had nothing but good experiences, understanding, and new perspectives from Olympic College. Nothing is perfect though and what I believe Olympic College can still work on is their course scheduling. For instance, going through the Chemistry or Biology course and having to miss a semester will set you back a complete year as the classes go in sequential order and don't overlap the next semester.
