On your team

WELCOME TO FALL QUARTER
AT CASCADIA COLLEGE 

Whether you’re here to earn a two-year degree, a four-year
degree, a technical degree, or have some other academic
pursuit, one of the most important things you can do is to
build your support team. Below we've highlighted some
of your fundamental resources!

Some of the team:

  • Kodiak Corner
  • Deans and Faculty
  • The Library
  • Student Leaders
  • The Learning Center
  • Kodiak Cave
  • Health & Wellness Resource Center



Kodiak Corner: An essential part of your team!

This is the place you go to add or drop classes, to get academic advising or reasonable accommodations, with financial aid questions or to connect to counseling services.
When you walk through those double wooden doors you’ll be met by a welcoming and hard-working crew ready to help you succeed at Cascadia.

TAKE THESE ACTIONS:

Sign up to receive emergency alerts from Cascadia and UW Bothell.

This is the best way to know if classes are late or cancelled or if there
is an emergency on campus.

You can purchase parking passes online now! Please note: you will need your UW NetID to purchase a parking pass, which can take up to 48 hours to process.


TIPS

Look for staff walking around in Kody/Cascadia shirts ready to support
you, and maybe grab a piece of candy as a reward for surviving the first couple of days!

Hours vary throughout the week. So be sure to check the Kodiak Corner schedule. Advising Drop-in Hours: Monday-Thursday from 10am-4pm



 

Cascadia Deans and Faculty on Your Team:

In fiction, deans and faculty members are often depicted as scary and unapproachable. Cascadia’s
are friendly and helpful, and they are an invaluable part of your team.

  • Introduce yourself at the end of class or if you see your instructor on campus.
  • Take advantage of faculty office hours (posted in hall outside CC1-140) 
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions.
