“My preference has always been to earn my degree from The University of Washington, but working full time and commuting made the prospects unrealistic. Now I can have the benefits of evening classes in the convenient location of Bellevue and earn my degree from the UW. It really is a dream come true.”
ROBERT W. BELLEVUE COLLEGE TRANSFER STUDENT
