The teachers are excellent, they care about their fields and about educating students. There are a lot of courses offered. My only complaint is that the workload is pretty substantial. It's community college, statistically speaking most students have jobs (even full-time jobs) outside of school but instructors don't seem to take this into consideration when assigning homework, which can make it difficult to keep up and receive good marks even for otherwise excellent students. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of concern from instructors regarding the amount of homework/time commitment, either. One of my instructors expects us to spend several additional hours reading material outside of class that will be briefly touched upon during his lectures, and another asked us about our work loads and then essentially told us "UW is worse".

I really enjoy taking classes here. The college is on the cutting edge of social change and progressiveness, and it is inspiring to be working with people who are truly affecting the range in the community when so many people don't care at all. The staff is there to help you succeed, and there are so many avenues to finding help with whatever you are working on.
The campus is great, and the instructors are excellent. They really care about their fields and their teaching methods are effective. Compared to all community colleges in the area, this one offers the largest variety of courses, particularly for transfer to a university in Washington. There is a very active student body, and plenty of extra-curricular opportunities. This school is also extremely environmentally and socially conscious, which are big bonuses for me. My only complaint is that the financial aid department is a huge pain to deal with, as they don't really seem to care about you - which is very different from the impression given by the rest of the school.
