I am a 45 year old single mother who went back to school five quarters ago. I went into the skagit valley campus to asked them about going back to school. the staff was helpful & welcoming. They made it so easy, they worked with my busy schedule of being a mom. The financial aid office was so helpful, they walked me through all the paper work. Last week I was the womens opportunity award, and the people I chose to watch me get the award, were my advisor & the head administrator of my campus. They feel like friends now.
