I chose "its okay" because theres some parts where its sketchy at school and the securities are not very good with watching over there place. We even had a bomb threat at olympic college

My school is very diverse! This is not just a racial aspect, but also age wise.

Our career center is very helpful and knowledgeable about what classes to take to fulfill degree requirements, and for what classes to take that will increase getting a job. We have on campus jobs offered to current student and for non-students, which always helps with paying for credits, etc. I'm not positive on how strong our Alumni network is.

We have a strong free Wifi-service offered to all currently enrolled students. The signal is very reliable. As far as printing on campus I've found that inside the library you are given a number of printing "credits" just so everyone have an equal opportunity to print their work. Our computer labs are pretty small, but the computers themselves are in great condition. With all the computer labs it makes it easier for student who cant afford a personal laptop to be able to use the same resources as a student who does have their own laptop.

There are plenty of valuable resources located on campus. Many of the instructors here also strongly recommend them to students because they are so helpful. For example we have our student center, also know as the "Bremer Center" which offers a place to study, a store to buy school supplies and books and this is also where you would go with any questions about services offered. Another great resource is our Writing lab. It offers help with proof reading, specific format for essays, and people to help walk you through basic essay writing. They have strong editing abilities, and useful techniques for idea mapping and starting the essay(which in many cases is the hardest part). Our library is very resourceful, it offers computers available for use and study cubicles.

When people attend college as long as they actually give the effort you can make your own experience good or bad. Personally, I really enjoy Olympic College and I would really like to be able to afford my second year since Running Start is paying for my first year here. This school is most unique for its variety of students from different clubs and races. There are so many clubs offered here for every student to find something that fits their interest.

Since I am working on my Associates in Arts, it would be natural to feel a bit intimidated, but that's not the case. Nobody really brags about their major or college experience. It's a very laid back environment and you can expect to see a wide variety of people in every class. There are a couple what seem to be 80 year- old men walking around that I know are in physical and lower English classes. They aren't looked down on, whatever class they are in, their equal to the rest of the students, which is nice.
College Senior 2013-11-08T21:58:25Z
There are a lot of resources available to help with classes on campus that aren't required. For example the Bremer Center helps with all questions and the Writing lab offers proof reading and help with writing styles and format.

There are no minorities seen walking between classes on your typical MWF classes. We have a pretty wide ethnic diversity, which I was surprized to find out and see myself.

An example with the academic flexibility at my school is when I received a parking ticket for parking in a "reserved parking" spot on campus. I sent a check in the mail to pay the $25 fee, and being new to my checking account, the check bounced. I spoke with the cashiers office and asked who I would talk to about possibly having the NSF fee being waived. I then talked with accounting, and explained how my bank waived the fee because I've never had a fee like this, the accounting office told me if I could provide proof that my bank waived the fee I could submit that information to the director of accounting and I would have a better chance of it being waived.

The campus resources are abundant, from being a student in need to going and getting a job on site or off site. The gym is better then some of the gyms throughout town. The theatre building is almost like a real life performance art building. The student store is a great place and the commons area has a great coffee stand, restaurant, lunch café.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition is reasonable for being able to take some of the courses at a university. Financial is a very helpful place to go when you have any questions about your grants or school funding.
College Freshman 2013-10-18T19:42:18Z
The computer access is amazing I know I can go into any of the buildings on campus and use different computers that are very reliable. The staff that man these areas also go to school here, so I don't to feel like I'm computer illiterate and the person isn't going to understand. The wireless connection is great I can get on everyday.

My school has everything it needs for the students to have academic success. As a mother of a two year old, they have a great childcare program, so that my son is close. When he was attending another daycare I was not able to have the study time, commuting back and forth to get him. My husband and I can have sometime to be social and be able to maintain our family and school time.

The best that can be offered by some well known industrial backers such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and other contractors from Washington State.

Olympic College offers all of the amenities you would expect to find at most major 4- year schools, yet offered at a well located community college. The also host a job fair sponsored by the local Shipyard and other contractors. This gives you the advantage of continuing your studies in an apprenticeship position.
College Senior 2013-10-04T14:54:50Z
Olympic College has a welcoming atmosphere that makes it a great place to continue my education. As a transfer student, they have made the transition from Walla-Walla Community College easy. They helped me plan my career pathways and have put me in touch with Aprenticeship co-ordinators from the Air Washington project. This is a school I feel anyone should feel lucky to attend.

You're basically on your own schedule and no one really bothers you or care what you do. There is a wide variety of people with different ages. There's a lot of events held here that is open for everyone to be engaged at the school.

Majority of the professors are very good, but it is good to look on ratemyprofessor.com to find a professor that will fit to your learning standards. Class registration process is fairly easy on OASIS and advisors are there to help you. There is a wide variety of special study options from tutoring from every department, library, making a group study group in the library and much more!

The career center is very helpful to help you find a job. They will do their best to help and guide you. They're excellent and wont leave you hanging.

Before I began nursing school, the flexibility of classes (times/days) was very good. During Running Start, I took nursing prerequisites and classes to apply towards my high school diploma. I was able to work around the classes I had at the high school, as well as work and swim team.
The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program is not flexible. School takes the highest time priority in your life, but only for two years.
The Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is quite flexible. There are education plans for completing your degree in one, two, or three years, with classes only a few days per week.

Online courses, generally speaking, give the same workload as face-to-face courses. However, there has to be more self-discipline due to not being in class everyday.
The interaction between students is much less than in class. Usually the only interactions betweent students are because of mandatory online discussion boards for assignments.
The interaction between professor/student is limited, which works well for some subjects that are easy. I do NOT recommend taking a class online that is difficult for you. Face-to-face interaction with a professor is helpful when explaining difficult subjects, whereas online, there is less help available from the instructor--other than via email.
College Freshman 2013-09-25T07:34:01Z
I love my school so much. Getting in and applying was little harder then the learning experience in classes after. It takes a lot out of your time and energy getting in. You have to talk to a counselor, apply for your classes of interest, apply for FAFSA/pay for your classes, wait for FAFSA to come through, and buy your books. In the end, it's worth it though if you really want it!
College Freshman 2013-09-25T07:30:10Z
The post-grad life I heard is really good and everyone who graduates is ready and feels prepared to go work in their profession. They always come back and visit and become alumni.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
