Set among mountains, forests, and the Pacific Ocean, Peninsula College is a 2-year community college on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula. PC is home to eleven academic departments and numerous courses take advantage of the college’s dynamic setting with trips into the field at Olympic National Park to study native plant and animal habitats. To better serve its Native American student population, PC offers an Associate of Arts Bridge and Native Pathways Bachelor of Arts program that utilize the leadership of area tribes. Throughout the year, PC schedules a number of all-campus cultural events including Magic of Cinema screenings, the Maier Hall Concert Series, and Stadium Generale academic speakers.
It is a challenging, but fun school. There are many activities for students outside of the academic life. I also love the fact that it is so close to the water, because my labs are more hands on.
