Olympic College has a very diverse population. I love it! We have Multicultural Student Programs & Events. Our International students put on displays to help those who wish to learn more about them and their cultures. Such as; Dance Within & Oasis Boutique presents Middle Eastern Belly Dancing Learn about the culture and meaning behind the beautiful dance, Celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr . accomplishments of this great hero! We have created a wonderful Gallery Viewing and a guest speaker, Middle East At The Bistro! - Learn about Middle Eastern tradition, culture, and music as you indulge your senses with authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. Middle Eastern history presentation, The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about relationships, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse, Blackout Tailgate Party & OC Dance - OC's Women's Volleyball vs. Bellevue, immediately following the game is OC's first dance to help celebrate their game.

So Much Better Than Anticipated – I was hesitant about community college, but I've found both the Poulsbo and Bremerton, Washington campuses of Olympic College to be positively enjoyable and very educational. I am learning quite a bit, challenged in certain classes but able to express my strengths freely in others, and people are extremely friendly. The student body includes a lot of strange people but I think it adds to the experience and opens the mind. I wish there was student housing! That would be fun.

This is my second year at Olympic College, and I love it. Teachers are so helpful. As an students whom English is not my first language, I found so much support from my instructors that help me being successful in my study. I won't say all of them are good and helpful, but the one I have taken so far, were great! Maybe this is because before I register for a class I try to ask people who toke the same class before me. I ask for the teacher, and this makes it easy for me to not get in a bad teacher's class
