Amazing and diverse community college that is constantly expanding areas of study! The volume of curriculum allows a student to carry a number of classes each quarter, and assistance from staff and professors is amazing. The college works hard to promote the students to take multiple fields of study, and earn several degrees and certificates through the course of their education. The library is amazing with knowledgeable staff that can find or get anything to assist you in your academic research studies. The digital lab allows you to create without stress, and staff that has a full knowledge of available software and tools. Student life is very supported and highly diverse in international studies ranging from other languages to cultural activities. The stem staff is there to help with organizing and cleaning up your computer issues and assisting with math and sciences homework as well as a full range of tutoring services available to all students for free.

I love how diverse it is! They have a commitment to students few see anywhere else! The campus is amazing, people are so friendly and eager to help. They have many integrated programs to aid students in all areas of their academic careers. They also have many resources for those needing employment pre, during and post education.
This now 4-year College has been growing expenonentially with new Majors offered through 4-year Universities such as CWU, PLU and so many more. It is a small campus with so many amenities to accomodate for students. It is an institution worth your bang for your buck!
