Whatcom Community College Reviews
Whatcom Community College encourages student involvement, student leadership, student lead conferences, diversity, and self expression. They have fantastic teachers, who respond to emails efficiently and are always welcoming. The environment on campus and in classes is very safe. Teachers try to engage students rather than lecture all of the time. Teachers are always encouraging discussions. The campus has great resources for students like tutoring, bus passes, computer labs, lots of studying areas, smoking areas, counseling, and lots transfer or job fairs. They have a lot of fun events as well as informational events held on campus. It's just a fantastic school.
During the time I have been studying at Whatcom Community College, I really enjoy the excellent professors, advisors, and staffs who have helped me to deal with my academic lessons, student life as an international student, and my transferring plan to a four-year university. The campus and environment around campus are safe and peaceful even though the city is small and does not have a lot of fun places to go to. However, food in the cafeteria is expensive and not very tasty, which makes me never try to buy something there. Last but not least, the school does not have any dorm, so it hires local apartment for students to rent, which is more expensive than home-stays they offers for international students. That is why I am still living with a host family after two years starting to study here.
Though I am relatively new to WCC, I have to rate it as excellent because of the accessibility of educational opportunities for returning, non-traditional, and fully employed students. The course offerings and education options are available for those that can only attend at night, they have increasing offerings for distance learning, and their non-credit courses are enriching.
