Seattle Central College Reviews

When I started at Seattle Central College in the fall of 2016, I didn't know what to expect. I graduated high school a few months prior and I was anxious to see the opportunities college would give me.

There are a couple of things I like about Seattle Central College. One thing is, the small classroom sizes. Being in a class with about 20-30 students makes it a lot easier for me to focus and learn. Another thing I like about Seattle Central College is the location of the school. The light rail train that is about two minutes from my home, goes straight to Seattle Central College. That makes my commute to Seattle Central College really easy. However, there are a lot of homeless people that live right next to the school. That can make safety a problem for some students.

Overall, I think Seattle Central College is a good school, with a lot of good things to offer. In my years at Seattle Central College, I've met some good students and some good professors.

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.
