What I enjoy the most about EvCC is the compassion that the professors express. I have been taking online classes during my attendance at EvCC and that can cause a disconnect between yourself and the professor. You don't meet in person and you are teaching yourself in a way with the material they provide. Anytime I have reached out, I get a timely helpful reply. Some online classes also include an embedded tutor that provides, even more, help to learn the material and answer questions.
With the covid 19 pandemic, the administrative office had to go remote. When it comes to things like financial aid, I like to be able to go talk to someone for clarification. With the switch to remote everything is pretty much handled with emails or a zoom call if needed/requested. I recommend checking the portal often especially between quarters to make sure everything is being processed correctly.
There are great instructors and tutors here at EVCC ready to help with anything.
The bookstore is very overpriced.
I liked the campus layout, each building had certain subjects that it harbored and they weren't too far apart between classes that I had to rush to my next class. I also liked how supportive the teachers were if you were struggling with any topic in class.
I felt that there was too much automation without any real people to talk to for specific questions or concerns. Applying for new classes or loans was not explained well enough when I first attended, causing panic every time a new semester started until I figured out the steps required to enroll in new classes on my own.
EvCC is local to me and the commute is easy. The nursing program has a great reputation and I have enjoyed it so far. I did all of my nursing pre-requisites at EvCC. Working with different departments was easy especially if I ran into a problem.
The thing I don't like about EvCC is the area of Everett it's it is popular for the crime. I have felt safe on campus and walking to my car at night but you still hear of suspicious activity in the area.
Doing running start at EVCC was the best decision I made in high school. There are many resources offered and help from tech support and overall the professors are pretty nice and kind. I would recommend this college to any student looking for a cost-effective way of getting their degrees.
For me personally, the campus is quite far from my house, and the off-campus/second location that is closer closed down last quarter which was too bad. I never found out why and the textbooks are expensive.
I like how open the campus is. I also enjoy the access that the school gives to receive help when it is desired.
I wouldn't say to avoid anything in particular. I love it here.
