4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Whatcom Community College offers a variety of courses that stimulate one's personal schedule, taste, style, and orientation towards one field to another. Class sizes, of course, can be expanded in regards to the cozy settings in which students have to engage in, but nevertheless, the educators make use of the class size with more content, stimulating education, and personalise approaches. The school's educators are mostly creative to express certain ways to teach and individualise learning styles knowing that students must be equip, not as a group, but as an individual.

Overall Experience: The college's student body values more so towards what they want to do and how should they approach it. Exploring one's field of orientation seems to dominate the minds of fellow peers as the community college serves the gateway for higher universities such as the University of Washington and Western Washington University. The gateway school offers a more exploration-based approach and has a variety of opportunities in which students can gravitate towards such as job and internship programmes within the city and community. Services and employers of the school personalise the students in their own way with many forming interactive bonds and community-like relations. But unfortunately, the school lacks a strong alumni network considering the school does not gravitate towards those fields. Nevertheless, the community environment from students and staffs alike placate the network through many approaches and links.

Academic Experience: The schools is not only an insitutition for academic success, but a community of the small town of Bellingham. Its curriculum is manageable and fast-paced, but with the teacher's flexibility, one can assure themselves that they have a right to respectable right to ask for aid in regards to acquiring knowledge. Educational programmes are diverse in teaching with different styles, combinations, and approaches to attempt to understand the most efficient way to personalise and aid the students in their successes. With the digitisation of the school, the workload have been quite manageable as modern conveniences can be synthesised with school work and activities and accommodate and personalise the students' workloads. Although the facilities are small, the ones that are present are efficient enough to distribute resources amongst the students and faculty members and educate the students to their personal needs. Opportunities for jobs, volunteers, sports, clubs, and other activities have been prioritised to apply for community and individual necessities with much of those based within the community itself such as internships to the Spark Museum in Bellingham's city centre. Education-wise, the school offers quite a commutative approach to settling students towards academic achievements.

Overall Experience: Whatcom Community College is quite surreal to experience and have flexible activities to manage between classes, sports, clubs, and other opportunities. My experience within its campus is currently manageable to a degree with quite a lot of area to shift classes or schedules. The teachers are mostly flexible when addressing personal situations that may mar my and other students' education. Fortunately, the students are also communal in addressing problems amongst their fellow peers as well as engaging in civil contact with both the teachers and the community as a whole. Because of its smaller frame, the school has a communal feel that addresses each individual for who they are within its confines. The community certainly expresses concerns whenever a person struggles to achieve their priorities.

Online Courses: A lot of learning on your own, not much contact with the profs and still have to come on campus to test for some classes. I'd recommend on campus classes.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am a student athlete at this school and being a student athlete sounds stressful already. However, thanks to my coaches, athletic directors, counselors, and all of my teachers together, balancing school, work, and play was no problem! The only struggle was the first few days of intense practice and then having a test the next morning! Oh well, that just shows you that you were making progress! Plus, exercise is good for the brain so I probably aced those tests!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are very knowledgeable about the subjects that they teach and are very willing to help a student if they are struggling.
