The teachers are excellent, they care about their fields and about educating students. There are a lot of courses offered. My only complaint is that the workload is pretty substantial. It's community college, statistically speaking most students have jobs (even full-time jobs) outside of school but instructors don't seem to take this into consideration when assigning homework, which can make it difficult to keep up and receive good marks even for otherwise excellent students. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of concern from instructors regarding the amount of homework/time commitment, either. One of my instructors expects us to spend several additional hours reading material outside of class that will be briefly touched upon during his lectures, and another asked us about our work loads and then essentially told us "UW is worse".

Shoreline is really helpful. They have a shuttle service that allows you a free ride from a store parking lot straight to the school, which makes it a lot easier than say taking the bus, or not being able to find parking at the main school lots, and it's easy for me to walk there and back home too! They also have a lot of clubs open to you, international study abroad problems and also a place for you to hang out, called the PUB. The Pub has the school bookstore with snacks, a small cafeteria, and even a game room for you to chill out in and play video games.

The campus is great, and the instructors are excellent. They really care about their fields and their teaching methods are effective. Compared to all community colleges in the area, this one offers the largest variety of courses, particularly for transfer to a university in Washington. There is a very active student body, and plenty of extra-curricular opportunities. This school is also extremely environmentally and socially conscious, which are big bonuses for me. My only complaint is that the financial aid department is a huge pain to deal with, as they don't really seem to care about you - which is very different from the impression given by the rest of the school.
