On your team

Welcome to fall quarter at Cascadia

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 Kodiak Team:

Kodiak Corner - an essential part of your team!

This is the place you go to buy a parking pass, 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. 

 If you can’t get to Kodiak Corner in person, you’ll find most of the same services can be accessed online in the Student Toolbox.

Take these actions:

Plan your transportation. Need a parking pass? Or take advantage of a discounted ORCA card and take the bus. 

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.

Tips:

Hours vary throughout the week. So be sure to check the Kodiak Corner schedule.

Advising Drop-in Hours: Monday-Thursday from 10am-4pm


Deans and faculty 2016

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

Take these actions:

Find your faculty contact in the employee directory

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.

Tips:

Can't remember what classes you're taking or where they're meeting? No worries. You can print your schedule.  And you might find a map of the campus is helpful!
