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.
Review Seattle Central College
Seattle Central is a large neighborhood school. Progressive, inclusive and diverse. The real experience of this part of Seattle's many aspects lives here. Its extraordinary to have many different people learning together and benefiting from each other. I also appreciate how connected this school is with the state universities who many of us will eventually transfer to. To have an affordable community college that truly prepares you to compete with university students is nothing short of a blessing.
The College is located in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle, the most diverse in Washington state. Many of the professors are also working in their field of expertise, therefore most classes are up to date and you are learning about current trends and ideas. Not only is the teaching staff very diverse, the student body is comprised of many nationalities, religions, handicaps and genders. You can learn so much from your classmates. I never thought a community college would be so educational. I thought it would just be a place to get through my general requirements. It has turned out to be so much more.
