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.
OC is a nice affordable community college. It allows Running Start students to earn credit while still in high school. I've not been super involved in any extra-curricular activities here, but from the academics I've received it seems pretty decent. Some professors and classes are much better than others and well worth your time, though occasionally you come across a professor or two who just doesn't care. You get what you pay for. Overall it's good quality education.
Olympic College is a good school. I am able to get the type of education I need at a price that i can afford. The classes have been have been profitable and the teachers are smart, helpful and knowledgeable. The one thing that makes me rate this school as a 3 out of 5 is the administrative systems. Getting transcripts to or information from regarding upcoming classes from the advisers has been very frustrating. I have received incorrect information which has kept me from registering for classes and a few important documents such as transcripts have been lost by the staff.
