    Whatcom has a decent sized campus that's not to big nor to small. It has a calm quiet campus with a lot of places to go and study in peace. Also the campus students and faculty are very friendly and show a great amount of tolerance for adversity.

    Other than just good classes, WCC has a beautiful campus that makes the students feel at home. The Syre building is the student center; part cafe, part auditorium, classrooms, and mostly open areas for people to study or talk. There are many clubs, societies, social and academic groups to join or check out. Plus it is close to a lot of local restaurants and Apartments for student housing.
