    I am having a great time being back in school, and i feel that Whatcom CC itself is a large part of that! Since I graduated over a decade ago, i have earned some life experience and have developed more patience for academic rigor too. The friends i have made, both students and teachers, are enriching my life with their outlook on life and delightful personalities!

    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.
