Depends on what you are looking for. This school has one of the top teaching programs and music programs. They are also an up and coming star in science. They'd like to compete with University of Washington, but I don't see their science program becoming that prominent very soon.
Peyton from Ellensburg, WA
If you are truly invested in your education, the professors will make sure you are learning what you need to be prepared for your careers.
Noelle from Olympia, WA
I feel as though many courses challenge students. However, some courses of lower credits (I.E. 3 credit, or 1 credit courses) are a lot more work than expected. Sometimes these courses seem to throw a 5 credit workload on their students. At the end of the course, however, students often feel proud, and motivated to continue in the given program. :)

It is a public college with a private school education.
Valerie from Camas, WA
Love the professors. They are so nice.
Norma from Buckley, WA
This school is on a quarter system, which means that it's fast-paced and ready to roll. If you like to buckle down and go rather than drag things out, this school is awesome. If you feel like you're falling behind, many of the teachers are willing to work with you to figure out a good way for you to learn the material. Other than that, it really depends on the the class and the teacher.
Robyn from Walla Walla, WA
The classes are fully self contained. you can just take a single course on any of the topics and get a pretty good grasp on the subject. and the tuition for all the classes are the same no matter how many you take. so you can take a large amount of classes per quarter if you wanted. or if you have a only a few harder classes to focus on.

The professors are all willing to help. they all have open hours and have been welcome to one on one help. especially if you get caught behind in some areas.
