What can Bellevue College do for you: Bellevue College is full of resources to help you succeed; you belong here! Use the resources available, ask questions, and get involved in campus activities and events. Do things outside of classwork to show you are a well-rounded student; it is not all about grades. If you have questions about processes or materials – there are many other students with the same question, so ask away…you will never know unless you ask!

What advice would you give a student: Get involved around campus and follow your passion. Education is all about finding and supporting your passion. Do undergraduate research and projects that intersect different fields of study – in the real-world different aspects of science and non-science disciplines are used to get things done. Do not be afraid to branch out…we are here to support you!
