What can Bellevue College do for you: Introduce you to instructors who are passionate about their subject matters in small class sizes; introduce you to a variety of clubs and activities; provide lots of options in terms of degree or certificate programs—if you have an idea of what you want to pursue, chances are that we have a program for you!
What advice would you give a student? Communicate with your instructors! Let them know how you’re doing. Prepare questions for them and visit them during their office hours. Plan to get to know one instructor and/or professional staff member well each quarter, and then you’ll have a solid group of people who can provide personalized support (and letters of recommendation!) by the time you graduate from BC.
Hobbies and/or interest: Playing music (viola and guitar), reading, cheering on Seattle and Boston sports teams, and exploring the great outdoors.
Ask me about: my favorite rollercoaster. I am a self-proclaimed “roller-coaster junkie” and visited three California theme parks in one week to ride as many thrill rides as possible.
