Bellevue College has opened doors for me that I never thought possible. In my time here at BC I have had the opportunity to meet people from diverse backgrounds, participate in several clubs including my own, and work with incredible professors who taught me hands-on skills that prepared me for the workforce. My education at BC has helped me build an impressive portfolio and attract attention from some of the big local tech recruiters. Throughout my time in the bachelor’s program, I was able to participate in three summer internships including Meta and Microsoft and ended up accepting a permanent position at Microsoft. I am more than happy I was able to attend this amazing college!”
