3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It is okay because classes are only two days a week but there are so few classes to choose from.

3 College Senior

Career Services: It is difficult to get into see anybody and they mixed up my transcripts when I transferred here and I have to take an extra quarter. When I asked what I could do to fix this because it is their fault they said "don't worry, this happens all the time" which is an issue that needs to be addressed.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are lots of different classes offered but because the school is so small and classes aren't offered often. It is hard putting together a schedule because there are so few classes and I have to work around my work schedule.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is very academic focused and wants their students to succeed they are just working out some kinks because they are so young.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: It is a combination of teachers. They are all very focused on group work which does hold you accountable and relates to working in the real world.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had lots of issues with people being disorganized and not knowing what is going on. If you have anything that needs to be fixed it will take weeks because nothing gets done and everything is slow. I do like the classes

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Lots of online classes, which is convenient to my current schedule

3 College Student

Online Courses: Very rigid and goal-oriented; not a lot of student/teacher interaction

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I haven't taken a lot of the courses yet, but I've enjoyed what I've experienced.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a good community school that wants students to succeed

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: It depends on the major you are taking. But for practicing specific major, it is not so good

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school was great. You can get help from everywhere.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Since it is only my second quarter, I haven't quite gotten that deep into the business program yet. I am currently taking business 101 and Econ 201 and the teachers do a good job on connecting it to real world ideas. I also had the opportunity to apply for a business leadership program that includes the UW Bothell students. I currently don't know if I got in but if I do, I will comment about it in a couple of months. There's no specific business clubs but there's a lot of programs that allow students to make connections with current business leaders, I find this amazing and very helpful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For a community college, Cascadia is one of the best. Since it is on the same campus as UW Bothell, I get almost all of the same resources as someone going to UW. As for classes, all of my profs. have been very helpful and willing to help me individually if needed. One on one time with teachers is really easy to get here since the class sizes are about 30 kids. Some things that have been a bit rough is the textbook process. A couple of times, I have wasted money by buying a book beforehand and then day of class the teacher tells us we don't need it. Or we will only use a couple pages out of the book the whole quarter.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Class times were great. Several classes for one subject were offered so you had options. It's easy to consolidate your classes just as long as you sign up as soon as possible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not a lot of variety with courses. Classes are the perfect number of students—ranging from 20-30 depending on how popular the class is. Several styles of classes are offered such as integrated learning or combined classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a two year school so there's nothing special about their degrees in general terms—however they would be perfect transfer degrees to UW. Haven't really seen much about employment recruiters or internship recruiters except for one day where we had sort of an event where people where offering internships.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Professors are great—really knowledgable and passionate about their subject areas. They really challenge the students and seek to make sure that we really grow and learn.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I loves this school. It was the perfect transition school, especially for those who are hoping to transfer to UW, since Cascadia was already connected to UW Bothell and shared the same resources.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a running start student second year. Cascadia has been awesome. A mix of teachers, some great others are a mixed bag. Either way there is a small class size, you have close interaction with teachers which is very beneficial. Very nice campus, everything is kept up and a lot of new buildings. The new ARC is very nice. Numerous study areas all around campus. Only thing that sucks is parking. If you are taking a class starting anywhere from 12:30pm-2:00pm, be prepared to come maybe 5-25 minutes late to class. Also parking passes per quarter are $90-$160. I think they are building a new lot, heard some things about that. You get other shared resources from UW Bothell which shares the same campus. You get access to the best library in the country. New workout center. School is great. Just slightly higher tuition then Edmonds CC or something, which isn't as nice. Other community colleges feel dirty and a bit sketchy.

Another con is a lot of prerequisite classes, every running start student I know (thru placement test) got placement to Math 085, so you need to take 4 math classes before Calc1.

I planned to transfer to UW Bothell for CSSE, things look pretty good if you make sure you take all the right classes and get great grades. Don't rely 100% on advisors, their time is limited. Talk to whatever transfer school you want to go to so you don't waste time and money.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far I'm quite enjoying my experience at Cascadia, and it's quite nice when your school shares a campus with another as to mingle the students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I appreciate the amount of communication the school has had with me so far. I had to do part of my registration process from Europe and it was not easy but they helped to make sure I had everything I needed for the start of the school year. My professors have also been helpful and clear so far regarding assignments and expectations.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really like Cascadia because it has a smaller campus making it easy to find your classes, especially on the first day. For the most part, every professor I have had has been personable and really cares about your education and success in the classroom. They make sure you know all of your options for projects and sometimes even give you time in class to sort yourself out. Group work is essential to every class and is unavoidable, so if you don't like working in groups... well you're out of luck because Cascadia requires it. However, professors almost always let you score your group members after projects, so if someone slacks off and you're stuck with the rest of the work, make sure to let your professor know and they will grade accordingly. I have never had a difficult time achieving good grades at Cascadia because there are so many resources available to help you.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Cascadia would be better if the relationships between the administration and students were better. The people at Kodiak corner aren't very welcoming and sometimes come off rude.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience entering college for the first time has been fairly straight forward. Cascadia has a great system down to help incoming freshmen make the transition smooth. I have been able to meet with my adviser with any questions I have and received help in planning my college career.
