Olympic College has changed my life. I am currently in my senior year at Olympic College and I have excelled through through their visual arts program. I have won first place in five art competitions, received an award for outstanding visual arts, been interviewed by two school magazines, acted as an artist in a short film produced by the school, and been connected with a local performance theatre as window muralist. The school has done an amazing job promoting art and employing professors who are passionate about what they teach. Instead of suggesting what students could do with their talent, teachers actually find opportunities and encourage their students to try them. I have developed so much just from the guidance of my art professors. Not only are the teachers excellent, but the college recently opened a new art building to further promote their art program with the most advanced art supplies and technology.
Review Olympic College
Olympic College is a community college that is really geared toward student success. They offer online, and in person classes many available during the day or evening or even on weekends. In addition to the many classes they offer they also have free tutoring available for math, biology, physics, chemistry, English and writing. The financial aid department will help you every step of the way to ensure you're getting as much help with your tuition as possible. They also offer free seminars monthly on how to study more effectively and how to manage the stresses of college.
Over the past two years I have spent my time on both the Poulsbo and Bremerton and online campuses of Olympic College. I was able to successfully complete an associate in arts and then transfer to a four year university. The advisors, professors and faculty do a good job of providing assistance to the students and making the overall experience one that prepares them for the future. The Bremerton campus has many more class options and a busier environment. The Poulsbo campus is quieter however, its professors and classes are still just as helpful as they are on the main campus. One drawback for the Poulsbo campus is the lack of security on campus.
