3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The material here shouldn't be that hard. but is.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have nothing but bad luck at North Seattle College. I could go on and on and on about all of the terrible professors that I have encountered and the staff here just don't seem like they really care. I have only encountered a few really great professors/staff at this school. I really feel like I should be getting some kind of refund for all of the B.S that I have gone through.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I do not think "It's okay" is my honest rating. I don't know much about post-grad services at my school.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm currently in the Intro to programming class (CSC110) and so far I'd rate it an overall score of 7/10. The workload isn't that hard since it's an intro class but the topic is difficult to understand. I think after constant practice I think I could get coding with python down. The curriculum is very interesting! I always loved coming to class and learning all the new material even if I didn't understand large portions of it. The facilities are alright. My class only uses one computer lab but it has a lot of computers in it. I'd be a little concerned if the entire Computer Science Program only had access to one computer lab though. Internship and job opportunities at NSC are fantastic! I applied to Student Leadership and Multicultural Programs as well as a position at the Library and both hired me. I think that almost anyone could have applied for both positions because they mainly revolve around interacting with students.

Academic Experience: I believe that the Nursing program and the Computer Science program is NSC's main priority. North wants to allow students to get their education fast in order to help them succeed. Nursing and Computer Science is currently the two most popular degrees, so the college tends to help students achieve their goals through their specific programs. I have sat through multiple lectures on a daily basis in my (almost) two years at NSC. Some were bad, however, most of the time, I felt like each professor wanted to teach the students passionately through their own teaching style. Each curriculum varies drastically. Some professors are fast-paced and heavy graders, while others are slower and easier. It really depends on the personality of each professor.

In my opinion, class registration is sort of a pain. Since I am a Running Start student, I have to take multiple steps in order to register for each class. First, I have to talk to my college advisor to see which classes can be implemented in my degree, and satisfy me. Next, I have to bring that information to my high school counselor and have it checked by him. Then finally bring all of the information back to my college advisor, and register for the right classes. All of those steps combined usually takes two to three days, which is ridiculous. On the other hand, normal college students who are over eighteen can simply login to their Net ID's and register the classes online with three easy clicks.

Besides the disadvantage that the institution imposes on Running Start students, I would totally agree that this college is a solid 8/10. It's not fantastic, yet the college has all the right things to support their students.

Campus Resources: North Seattle College is an okay school. I can get college credits for free through the Running Start program while working two part-time jobs here. They have a lot of resources for the students to help their success while at NSC. The institution also has plenty of job opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have had teachers with great flexibility when it comes to scheduling exam times. They have worked with me to arrange times that work with my schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: I am only taking on-line and evening classes so I can't say a lot about this topic.The people in my classes are generally people who work full time. There is a lot of diversity.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The student center is great. I haven't been in the athletic center at all and have not participated in campus activities.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have really enjoyed my online classes. The only downside is that I wish there were more online classes offered.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: They built a great new Health and Science building with a lot of updated equipment. The classes are small, and the building is clean.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: They offer a wide variety of classes that are transferable to four year colleges.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am getting financial aid and when I initially applied the finincial aid office was great about letting me know exactly what steps I needed to take. They have been very good at getting back to any questions I have promptly.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Counselors have been very helpful in guiding me towards next steps.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I personally have had bad experience with online classes, it makes it really difficult to stay motivated and on task. Scheduling and due dates also become very vague so it's hard to stay dedicated.
