I love this college, It is inviting and a part of Seattle's History. There are so many amazing programs to pick from and the choice in classes is phenomenal. I love the culture that you will find while attending this school. It is in a "hip" part of town and is always busy. Although we don't have dorms or a sports team, this school is great for people who are just starting out in college as well as returning students later in life. The atmosphere is calm yet you can tell that there is an air of busy minds all around you. Great choice of schools for several different lifestyles.

As a first generation college student, I felt unsure what to expect entering Seattle Central College. Navigating the college system can be confusing and students at various colleges always spoke of being unsure of their path to their education goals and not having much help from their college to answer their questions. My experience with Seattle Central College from my first quarter until now, my 7th quarter, has left me feeling confident and empowered in my education decisions. At every opportunity I have found someone willing to help whether that be directing me to a class I had difficulties finding to offering input into what classes would make me a more competitive applicant to 4 year colleges. The library faculty is helpful and available for questions and guidance on essays and research. I feel confident that I am a better student and will be successful post transfer because of my strong start at Seattle Central.
Seattle Central College is an excellent college, the students in the school are full of energy and friendly. I always can see the library is full of students, and they put all their effort in their study. Also when I go to a class, some out-going students will say hi to me although we don't know each other. Students never have to worry about asking questions to professors, they will help you solve the problems patiently. And teachers in ESL are nice, it is easy to be their friends during the class time, but ESL teachers are so tired because they have to spend more time than college professors. Hope students can learn better, and better to not fail the classes. The life in Seattle Central College are awesome too. The gym has entire utilities, and the cafeteria has numbers of food from different countries. Also the utilities for Art students and Lab students are wonderful too.
