    Overall i found that the teachers here are way underpaid for the intellect and teaching skill they posses. I have been to lecture classrooms at other schools and i find that whatcom has a very good teaching system. Its a community college, so it is naturally cheap. Quality and affordable.

They offer a lot of tools to help guide you towards a degree or plan. I participated in running start my senior year and that is a great program for getting extra band for the buck.
