Campus Resources: Bellevue College is pretty much a glorified community college, so you can't expect the type of resources you'd get at a university. There is a gym in the athletic center, but you must sign up for the associated class or be on a sports team to use it. No free time in the gym as far as I know, only classes. There is a small outdoor rec program, with outings five or six times a quarter.

Lounging and study areas are scattered nicely throughout campus. The student center with the ASG and cafeteria and what not is nice, although can be crowded and loud. Seating is hard to get there sometimes.

Campus activities are infrequent and done on a small-scale, but usually well-done for what they are. Bake sales and other fun stuff put on by clubs in the cafeteria show up pretty often, but you usually don't know much about them ahead of time. Campus-wide events pretty much equal cafeteria events.

The library is quiet, well-managed and has plenty of room. If you need a computer, good luck getting one during the afternoon, but there's plenty of seating available, with lots of outlets for laptop plugs. Books are a good resource, and the librarians are friendly and helpful.

I've always said that when the weather's nice, the grounds turn into a college ad. Dumb kids with guitars, four-square games, footballs and frisbees come out of no where the minute the sun starts shining.

Campus Resources: The computer lab has great hours (so does the library), especially considering the commuter campus atmosphere. It's usually easy to print an assignment off in a pinch if you know where to go, and if you still have free credits (you basically get 100 free pages a quarter), it's free, but otherwise it's 10 cents a page. Pro-tip: The business center's printer is free the first five pages, whether you have credits or not. Computers and printers are also available at all study labs, which is nice.

My only complaint is that the network connection can be flaky. A lot of the time I couldn't connect in the cafeteria, and it's really flaky when you're outside.

Campus Resources: I have never used the student center, but I have used the athletic centers from being on the volleyball team. The workout facility is mediocre, and the gymnasium is average, but they serve their purposes. The library is pretty average as well, but it has some books on reserve for people who don't buy textbooks.

Campus Resources: Our computer network is great! We large a large computer lab in the N building on campus. I can always access an open computer there, and printing is easy. We get fifteen dollars worth of printing for the quarter, which is more than enough for me. Also, the staff in the computer lab is friendly and helpful in setting up your account if you are new. I have also never had any problems with the wireless network, but sometimes it is slow in the science building.

Campus Resources: The online student center and library is great. It's very easy to use and they have tutorials on everything to help you out.

The library is a great resource for students. There are computers there, but it usually gets crowded, so many students go to the computer lab instead, where there are plenty of computers. The library has mainly books that help students with academic courses they are taking. There are many study rooms in the library, small rooms or large rooms. There are also many tables throughout the library that have a top part attached to the desk that acts as a kind of shelf where you can put your books and belongings if there isn't any room on the table itself; it also gives you privacy from other students.

Overall, the Bellevue College campus has amazing resources. In terms of technology, the network can be slow sometimes, but most of the time, it runs smoothly for everyone. The tech support team is very helpful; you just ask them anything, and they will come and help you.
