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
  • Mo Lab



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.

TAKE THESE ACTIONS:

Plan your transportation. Need a parking pass? Or take advantage of a discounted ORCA card and take the bus. Parking permits ordered online available Wednesday, Sept. 25 and Thursday, Sept. 26 at the Welcome
Desk with photo ID - you should receive an email that they are ready.

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.


TAKE

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.

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!

TAKE THESE ACTIONS:

Check out the Fitness Center at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC). Be sure to bring your printed class registration and student ID so you can get set up to start working out. 

Feed your body and your brain. If you didn’t pack a lunch from home, you can buy food at five different locations on campus. Two or three different food trucks pull up outside the ARC every day.


TIPS:

Your student leaders are more than excited to help you get connected!




Check Out the New Bock Learning Center:

The Bock Learning Center is the merging of two popular spots on campus - math & writing center and open learning center (same location, CC2-060 & 080). Why merge? To be able to offer you even MORE! That’s right, quality tutoring, work space, computer & printing resources, and account management!

  • Tutoring available in chemistry, physics, math, BIT, writing, and online support
  • They also offer Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions - organized study groups that are led by a facilitator and offered in conjunction with specific courses.
  • TUTORING IS FREE!

Get to Know Mo:

Hi! I’m the vibrant trailer parked next to the Food Forest. My full name is Cascadia’s Mobile Laboratory, but my friends call me Mo. I’ve had many adventures in the past couple of years, and can’t wait for yours. Whether we stay on campus, or journey into the surrounding communities, no experience is too big or small. So, where will you go with Mo?
