Peninsula College has (and will continue to be) a great experience! They provide a variety of different professors and will take the time to help you find the right ones for you. The campus is beautiful and, from their flowerbeds to their bathrooms, is very clean.

Their Honors Program (in which I am enrolled) is really great. It allows me to really focus on learning, interact with like-minded students, and be challenged by those who aren't like-minded.

There's a lot of diversity at PC, which makes it a great cultural experience!

I think I've learned a lot from attending PC so far, and I know that anyone else would say the same. The people are great, the classes are high-quality, and the learning is happening all of the time!

An excellent college with friendly staff, instructors, and colleague. Here in the college, I enjoy the aroma from the Olympic Peninsula nature: starting from the mountains, the strait of Juan De Fuca, cold, windy surrounding, and of course, deer everywhere! Despite the fact that the college does not have dorms, they provide services to search for a nearby place to live or living with awesome host parents. Clallam County busses are reachable, and it is free since I am the college student. With the surrounding around me, I feel comfortable studying in this college. In fact, my grade so far is satisfying!
From experience so far, the staff are incredible people. The people in this town are also extremely friendly. I was late to my appointment with the transfer advisor and she was extremely kind and understanding when I arrived. She helped me with all of my questions and even helped me beyond what I was even there for. As an out of state student, the tuition is also very cheap.
