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.
Whatcom Community College has treated me very well. The quality of academics has been high, and if you take the time to look for good professors, you can find some very good ones. I'm a transfer student who will be getting my AA as a direct transfer degree, which means my credits will all transfer as a package to the university in Oregon I will be attending. I'm a big fan of transferring from a community college to a university if you want to save money on a college education. Whatcom definitely delivers in that respect, with a worthwhile education at a much lower cost than two years at a university. If you live in Northwest Washington, or are interested in a quality community college that is located in the same city as a university (Western Washington University), then this could be the school for you.
Whatcom Community College is a great place to thrive because of the caring faculty members. They truly try their best to help you if you are struggling. Whatcom also offers Math and English learning centers where you can drop in at anytime and get help from tutors on any assignment. The only thing I would like to see change is the weather! It is always so rainy in the Pacific Northwest.
