Its a great overall college it has a great community and many opportunities to get involved. There is great programs in trades sciences arts and they have a very flexible schedule including online classes. And if your wondering what the cost well its really affordable compared to other colleges and they also offer help with scholarships and financial aid.
This school is a great place to go if you are looking to get your associate's degree or bachelor's degree at a two-year community college. They have a GED program and training in numerous trades. Socially, the school is mostly independent but there are many club options available. The professors are great and very attentive. There are also very many online options available. Overall, this is a great undergraduate school.
It is a great school for a community college. I love how close it is to home. The one thing I find frustrating is the parking lot because there isn't enough parking for everybody. I once drove around for half an hour to find a spot. Other than the parking it is a great school with awesome professors.
If you're in high school it's a great school to do running start but if you are getting out of high school and a social person I wouldn't suggest the school. There is not much interaction outside or the class unless you already have friends that attend CBC.

If I has the chance to go back and give myself advice as a high school senior I would tell myself that there will be alot of challenges in college but no matter what I face the biggest and most important priority is school. Recently my dad was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor and it affected my studies because I have to assist my mom in caring for my dad as well as attend school and keep a job. It has been very tough on me and my family but my biggest motivation is obtaining my degree with hopes that my dad will see me graduate with my college diploma since I will be the first college graduate in my family.
Columbia Basin College is a Community College that has been around for a long time helping students of all ages pursue a career.
Everyone was "generally" nice all around, there were a few people that needed to drown in their own nose. hence came up with the joke with my firends, "if you hold your nose up to high, might as well drown in it". Alot of people smoked weed relgiously, and came to school either stoned, or went off campus and got stoned and came back.
I feel this college is good for any type of person.
If I could have applied for loans before being accepted to the program. The Financial aid office never answers the phone and I had a million questions. I ended up being accepted and having only 4 weeks to get loans to a very expensive and self support program.
The unique thing about CBC is the atmosphere. The atmopshere is more like a big large college, instead of a community college.
The best thing about my school is they have a paramedic program. I can stay in my hometown and get my paramedic degree while being able to stay with my fire department I am currently affiliated in. The paramedic program is one of the five paramedic courses in Washington state. I am lucky to have such a good opportunity in my hometown.
The worst thing about this school is that it is incredibly underated. I would have never imagined that I could get this good of an education at a community college. I attended a University right out of high school with the idea that a University education would be far superior than that of a community college. Although I had some wonderful experiences there, I would have never imagined that the instructors at the community college were so wonderful. I have had wonderful connections and have learned so much--not to mention retained all of the information I have learned.
When I tell my friends in Wenatchee how I much better the school is at CBC than at WVC, I tell them about how wonderful the teachers are. The teachers are so funny yet I have learned more in the first week than I have learned through all four years of high school.
There are deadlines to meet such as applications and payment, however there is no one in Financial Aid to answer phones/questions. When I was accepted into the program that I applied to I was give 5 weeks notice. I have to quit 2 jobs, move and find loans. 5 Weeks is not enough time. They seem understaffed to meet the students needs successfully.
My school is best known for its affordiblity, as well as a diverse population of students. It also has one of the best welding programs in the state, and in the North-West. It also has an excellent nursing program, dental hygiene program, and more.
Columbia Basin College has a large campus, and a large faculty of teachers and administrators. Everyone is friendly and eager to help, especially the people in registrative services, and counseling.
