What Students Are Saying

3.33 Average Rating
As a minority student, it is a predominantly white school, but has a GREAT diversity program which is the only way i survived. Academics are good, however administration is terrible due to under-staffing in my opinion. Overall it is great for a 2 year school if you get involved.
Rebekah from Olympia, WA
This college is great for figuring out what you want to do with your life. The advisors are helpful and kind, and the students are great people to learn with. The diversity of this campus is great, from age, race/ethnicity, to sexual orientation, nobody is discriminated against, and everyone is accepted.
