WHAT I LIKED

The Campus environment is excellent and the CIS course is all very interesting.

WHAT I LIKED

I studied online at Whatcom, starting at the beginning of the pandemic and they offered really wonderful services for online students who were struggling or might need extra help. They adapted their curriculum very well to online learning and present an open and communicative perspective when working with students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While most of the professors I worked with had put a lot of effort into adjusting and making the best of online learning, some had not and that was both frustrating and disappointing. But that doesn't fully reflect on Whatcom, only the individual professors.

WHAT I LIKED

I liked that everyone I interacted with -teachers, advisors, tutors - all sincerely wanted to help me succeed. Teachers were understanding about life struggles and did their best to accommodate them. Everyone was really good about answering questions, multiple times if needed. It was just really good vibes all around. Not to say there aren't going to be a few teachers who you just won't click with because there are. Thankfully, there are a bunch of ways to deal with those situations, you just have to be willing to reach out and talk about your struggles with your advisor.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There's honestly not anything that comes to mind that I didn't like. It's really that good of a school.
