Local Atmosphere: Olympia is a city, but feels like a town there are all the amenities, and things that a city would have, but it still feels small. small enough that you have a good chance of seeing your friends downtown.

Local Atmosphere: Olympia has plenty of community events in the spring and summer. It feels like everyone in the city turns up downtown to celebrate.

Local Atmosphere: Our campus is located in the heart of Tacoma. We have many attractions since we are downtown that range from plays, to museums, to local attractions and entertainment. It is relatively safe as long as you know the areas to engage. Students interact with one another on a regular basis. Our school is one that thrives off of community.
