As an international student who started his program in Fall 2018, I consider Seattle Central College to be an adequate starting point for people in need of a landmark, who want to have an idea of what kind of career they would like to follow.

This college provides general 2-years programs that are flexible enough to leave a student the freedom to customize them to their liking while gaining a better idea of what interest them. The admission is pretty easy and the tuition, even for out-of-state students, is rather affordable. Furthermore, the location is advantageous as it is in Downtown Seattle.

In terms of characteristics, it provides the resources and assistance necessary for students to thrive and develop their student life successfully. Some of these are the cafeteria, the computer lab, the local bookstore, and even the activity center among others.

Even if some teachers can have a peculiar learning system, the atmosphere is pleasant enough and the education appropriate.

Seattle Central College is located in Capitol Hill in Seattle. It's surrounded by plenty of amazing restaurants from many different cultures. The college has students from all walks of life, which gives one the opportunity to enrich their social experience. Many international students attend but they are, unfortunately, quite difficult to interact with. As with almost every college, it is hard to judge the professors as a whole because everyone's experience really depends on the ones they get. Personally, most of my professors have a wealth of knowledge to share with their students and are very accessible.
Overall I am having a positive experience so far with Seattle Central College as a first-year student. I haven't started my classes yet, but all of the staff have been extremely helpful in making sure I have everything I need to be successful. I do think the financial aid process could be a little more updated/integrated into their online website, but overall I would highly recommend this college to any student, but especially returning students. The campus itself feels very welcoming and is easy to navigate.
