I have heard that the science classes are the same level and transfer the same way for Whatcom as well as Western, so take them at Whatcom because they are way easier and cheaper and you learn the same amount.

    Extremely helpful to all of their students. If you are struggling academically, they have people and centers to help you with anything. Everyone is welcoming and friendly.

    Surrounded by beautiful trees, plenty of shops, and close to the ocean, this school has a nice setting to go along with some academic rigor. The faculty are really caring and most have a sense of humor.

    This college has many quality instructors and staff who are enthusiastic about their various fields of work and the student body is diverse as well. In the year i have been there, not one person has been unkind; there have been a couple spots of impatience from the odd person every now and again (understandably around finals time). I look forward to being at school, even under the duress of research papers, projects, and presentations!

    Whatcom is a great school. I really like the fact that no one is judgmental and that you can go there and get the education that you need. It is truly a great place to be.

    Whatcom community College is a very well rounded school that is missed by most of it's students that transferred. The professors do their best to prepare you for universities. Whatcom has a wonderful supply of classes.

    Whatcom is a typical community college. They appeal to running start and day students more than night or online students. Advising is great, but other departments are unorganized and short tempered.

    Whatcom Community College is a great school for students who are serious about starting a technical program and earning an associates degree, especially for those who want to work in the medical field. Many running start and transfer students also find WCC to be a good value school where they can complete prerequisite courses in smaller classes. The students and staff are all great people who create a positive learning environment.

    It is a nice, good sized campus with adequate amenities and friendly students. The classes are definitely college level classes and can be challenging-- you have to work for your grade in some of them. It is located in Bellingham, which is a fairly liberal university town that also contains WWU.

    This is a great economical place to learn and grow to decide your major. With a diverse age group it makes it easier to be independent. The classes are always intriguing and inspire great conversation. Definitely the place to go when in the stage of deciding what you want to be in life.

    I enjoy attending Whatcom Community College. I feel very comfortable there, I like that I know my way around. I like that the expectations the teachers have aren't like a university, it is simple to follow along and I feel set up for success.
