I have had a wonderful time at Seattle Central and have learned so much. The professors are awesome and always try to help however they can. I only had one professor I didn't like and he no longer works here. They have so student clubs and events, it is great. They have the different tutor centers and a TRIO center for low income, first one in family to get a bachelor's students. They help with everything and make your education very personal because they is what it is personal. Your education is yours and no-one else's, so don't give up on it and try hard.

Seattle Central Community College is located in a really fun part of town. The campus itself blends in to its surroundings which is nice. There are fun places to hangout with other students. Parking can be a challenge so if you dont have to drive thats best.
