Updated on October 30, 2012

Seattle is a fabulous city that is intellectual, artistic and stimulating. It’s of very little surprise, then, that there are a lot of students who wish to attend college in Seattle. If that sounds like you then you may be wondering which Seattle school is the right school for you. What’s great about this city is that they have a school for everyone. If you want to go to a big traditional college campus for a four-year degree then you can do that. If you want to get a certificate to practice midwifery or massage then you can do that, too.

    yeah. some community colleges such as Seattle Community college are great stepping stones when universities general ed classes are on a wait list. When I went, the same professors taught at CSU and were at SMC.
