4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I loved being a part of a community college and supporting community education. Not only were the professors passionate about community education, they were also very knowledgable, enjoyable people. As a student that transferred from a large public university to a smaller community college, I am very impressed with the quality of education offered at Whatcom Community College.

Online Courses: I took a hybrid online class for microbiology and loved it. It was nice to be able to study and complete assignments on my own schedule without having to spend time driving back and forth to campus. Also, when we would meet once a week to do labs, we had more time to focus on questions and completing labs rather than lecturing. Taking a hybrid class is a great option if you are disciplined self-learner.

Career Services: Whatcom is a community college that offers associates degrees that most people transfer to larger universities with career centers, a larger network base, and potential job opportunities.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I don't use many of the campus services available. I know there is a large, fairly new athletic center and a nice student center and library with places to buy coffee or a snack. However, finding a quiet, open place to study has been a challenge, so I usually do that off campus.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: I never use the computers available on campus because the are outdated, slow, and the log-in process is a little more complicated than necessary. It is also difficult to connect to wi-fi on campus.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I had no trouble transferring my credits from a different university as well as my AP credits. With the exception of a few classes, it wasn't difficult to meet the requirements for my degree plan at Whatcom.

3 College Senior

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity at Whatcom due to the international student exchange program.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think pursuing community education before transferring to a 4-year university is the smartest thing to do budget-wise. Plus, you are taking many standard introductory classes that are the same even at larger public universities, so it is better to get those out of the way at a lower cost.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The community college is a pretty campus with a newer science building. Some of the other facilities are in need of an update or remodel, but overall it is a quality campus.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The program I am in is fairly standard and includes similar classes to what you would take at other community colleges.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am very impressed with Whatcom Community College and the quality of both professors and courses offered. The professors are very passionate and excited about providing community education, which creates a great learning environment.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I never got any financial aid money even though my family is struggling to pay for my schooling. I'm not sure how financial aid works but I know that a lot of people who need it don't get it.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I feel at ease because the classes aren't too hard, the instructors are nice, and I like how I can schedule my classes.

Career Services: Career center is just a small board with job listings on it, it could be more substantial.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am very happy with the PTA program so far. They clearly want their students to succeed and really work with you not only with coursework, but with clinical site placement, and board exam prep.
